This fall is truly the end of an era. On a personal level, although I’m excited for whatever comes next for Epcot’s evening entertainment lineup, IllumiNations has been a significant part of my life. (I got engaged during IllumiNations and to commemorate our engagement, we bought a Leave a Legacy tile. I know it isn’t Disney trying to personally attack my engagement, right?)
As is true of any long-standing favorite going away, there will be limited-time merchandise available for purchase. Merchandise will be available at Mouse Gear in Epcot starting June 17 and will include a special MagicBand, pins (a limited-edition featuring Figment and a limited-release featuring Mickey), a baseball cap, and t-shirts (a kids’ shirt, an adult shirt, and a “gee, why does Disney think people like long sleeves in summer” passholder shirt).
I’m on the fence about the shirts, but I might be in line to get a pin. Does any of the merchandise sound appealing to you? And if you want some more IllumiNations goodness, check out our in-depth history of IllumiNations.
