Monday Merch Meeting: Haunted Mansion, Mickey, Vera Bradley, Food & Wine, and More!

It’s Monday again, somehow. Is it just me, or does time seem to be moving faster than ever at the moment? On the upside, that means we get to hang out together and window shop the latest in Disney merch items. I’m going to start with something I finally have for you, those Haunted Mansion Ears!

New Haunted Mansion Merch

Even though Haunted Mansion Merch started trickling in a few weeks ago, there was a very obvious item missing, the adorable new ear headband with the little HM hat. I’ve got them for you below, along with the bridal ears, which are unfortunately already sold out, and much more.

Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction – Peter Pan’s Flight – Limited Release

The latest release for Mickey Mouse: The Main Attraction, this time celebrating Peter Pan’s Flight. See the Plush, Ears, and Pin from the new collection below.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse Dooney & Bourke – EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival 2022

One of two new Dooney & Bourke lines that emerged this week, the EPCOT Food and Wine collection is the clear favorite. The other one, I didn’t like and am not even including this week. For those of you who are curious, I’m just going to say that they were covered in strange-looking princess faces. Not a thing. Enjoy the 2022 F&W pieces below instead.

Ariel by Vera Bradley – The Little Mermaid

Here are a few items from Vera Bradley this week that are inspired by The Little Mermaid. How cute for your late-summer getaway?

Grogu Figural Snack Bowl – Star Wars: The Mandalorian

Add some Grogu fun to your next gathering with the new Grogu Figural Snack Bowl – Star Wars: The Mandalorian, $29.99.

The Main Street Electrical Parade 50th Anniversary Denim Jacket for Adults

Funny, this one should come up because it may or may not be related to something we will be taking a look at later in the week. (I’m badly winking at you right now) The Main Street Electrical Parade 50th Anniversary Denim Jacket for Adults, $79.99, is now available online.

New Minnie Ears

There are new ears out this week, and I love that they are in beautiful plain colors that are easy to match an outfit with. Have a look at the Minnie Mouse Ear Headband for Adults – Almond Pearl, and Minnie Mouse Sequin Ear Headband for Adults – Copper, Both $29.99

Tiana Cake Stand – EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival 2022

Adding on to the Tiana EPCOT Food and Wine 2022 Festival items we saw a few weeks back, we now have the Tiana Cake Stand – EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival 2022, $39.99, ready to help you with those freshly baked beignets!

New MagicBand 2 Styles

I do not entirely understand the sudden push for releasing MagicBand 2 immediately after the announcement of MagicBand+, but in case you are interested in them, have a look at limited edition releases below:

Disney Parks Icons Woven Shirt for Adults by Our Universe

The new Woven Shirt for Adults from Our Universe has all the Disney Parks Icons we love! Check out the Disney Parks Icons Woven Shirt for Adults by Our Universe, $59.99.

Cinderella Wristlet

I do love a cost-effective Disney purse, which makes the Cinderella Wristlet, $24.99, perfect for anyone looking to complete an outfit with a special something in dreamy shades of cream and peach.

Alice in Wonderland Color-Changing Teacup Mug

For a bit of fun, try the new Alice in Wonderland Color-Changing Teacup Mug, $22.99, which changes from a black silhouette to color images when the temperature changes.

Did you find something that you liked this week? I’m sure you could guess that I am all about those Haunted Mansion Ears.

Have a great week, and I will see you on Wednesday.
