Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you are off to a fabulous start to the week. Myself, I am still excited having followed the DIS team through the Magic Kingdom on the weekend. If you didn't catch all the footage live, don't forget to catch up today on the DIS Facebook page.
It's another week of Disney Merchandise, and as some of you know, my favorite merch pieces are those everyday items you use around the house, just with that tweak of Mickey. The first three things on my list this week perfectly incorporate that Disney love with household usefulness and would make great gifts if you have someone hard to buy for in the months ahead. Psst, Josh, I'll take the lazy Susan for my birthday...
Star Wars ''Beware the Dark Side'' Cheese Board and Tools Set
Good cheese is a staple at any family gathering at my house. The next time you are entertaining, wouldn't it be nice to pull out this Star Wars Cheese Board and Tools Set to impress your guests? The Star Wars ''Beware the Dark Side'' Cheese Board and Tools Set, is $39.99.
Mickey Mouse Lazy Susan Tray
Disney has released a Lazy Susan, and I want it. This 18in / 45cm rotating tray is made from acacia wood and includes a chalkboard style rim and pencil so that you can write the name of your dishes. The Mickey Mouse Lazy Susan Tray is $99.99 and is available now.
Beauty and the Beast Serving Stone
I just had to show you this serving stone which is much nicer than it looks in the preview image, (the one without the cheese where it looks pretty random and could be just about anything). This piece is $74.99 and is 90% marble / 10% acacia, measuring at 12'' H x 7 3/4'' W x 3/4'' D.

Disneyland 65th Anniversary Merchandise Collection
Last week Disney announced a new line of merchandise to celebrate 65 Years of Magic in Disneyland. Tom Bell walked you through the basics of the collection, which can be found here.
Disney originally announced that an Online Merchandise Event would be held on July 14th, you can use this link HERE to access the queue, however, the shopDisney.com website is also showing that this collection is "coming soon" on July 17th. If you are keen on anything in this release I would be ready on both occasions just to cover your bases.
And just like that, it's another wrap for the Monday Merch Meeting. I hope you have a fabulous week ahead. Stay safe and those of you headed to the parks and resorts this week, have a wonderful time!
