Even though Halloween doesn’t arrive until next month, celebrations are already underway at several Disney Parks. Guests on the East Coast can currently celebrate the spooky season at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Over on the West Coast, Halloween Time just began and is bigger and better than ever with celebrations happening in both Disneyland and California Adventure Parks!
To celebrate Halloween 2017, Disney Parks Merchandise created new artwork for its annual collection of Halloween-themed goods. Dave Keefer, principal designer with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media Creative Group, recently gave the inside scoop about these colorful new designs.
Let’s take a look!
“This year’s Halloween art was inspired by Halloween images and graphics from the 1960s,” explains Dave. “We used bold graphics with lots of bright colors. Guests will also find familiar Halloween icons, such as pumpkins, bats, and black cats, hidden throughout the art. I love how the artwork captures the Disney characters enjoying the spirit of this spooky season.”
For the artwork this year, each Disney character was given a unique color – Mickey Mouse has red hues while Minnie Mouse is bathed in purple. These colors are best seen in the cameo pin collection, select apparel, or the Halloween-themed bangles by Alex and Ani.
Guests will find several returning favorite items including a pumpkin-shaped mug; a towel set; and an updated Halloween countdown clock with Mickey and Minnie Mouse dressed in their Halloween best.
New items include a fun, foam wall décor of Mickey Mouse holding a “Trick or Treat” sign; colorful headbands that light-up; and a soft pumpkin-shaped treat bag that glows in the dark.
These items and more are available in a variety of merchandise locations throughout Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. Select items are also found via the Shop Disney Parks app or the Disney online store.
