My daughters are all heading home from college this week. And since we’re big into family board games, I thought this would be a great time to stock up on some Disney versions of classic tabletop games–a stress-free throwback to start the summer off on the right foot.
Disney and Hasbro have a partnership to co-brand board games, not surprising, given the presence of giant-sized Hasbro products in Toy Story Land.
The pricing for these games is a little higher than you’d pay for the non-Disney versions at, say, Target. The Monopoly game, for example, is $44.95 in the parks, but there are lots of special details that will delight a Disney fan. The tokens in Disney Monopoly are Figment, Mickey, Goofy, Tinker Bell, and the Expedition Everest Yeti – and the properties you buy are theme park rides. Candyland is $17.95 in the parks and features character cards like the Seven Dwarfs and Alice in Wonderland. The $39.95 Haunted Mansion Life uses Doom Buggies instead of cars. So cute!
In addition to some of these games, there are also other Disney-branded board games sold on shopDisney.com. On the website, you can buy Black Panther Monopoly, Nightmare Before Christmas Monopoly, Disney Animation Monopoly, and Incredibles Monopoly Junior, but not the parks edition seen here.
