PHOTOS: Lunar New Year Merch, Disney Dogs Stuff, and the Worst Disney Shirt Arrive at Disneyland Resort

Share This!

The Disney merchandise machine keeps on churning in 2021. In this Downtown Disney update we’ll take a look at new arrivals at Disneyland Resort, including Lunar New Year apparel, Disney dogs merchandise, and what we consider to be an early contender for the worst Disney shirt of 2021.

Disney California Adventure’s annual Lunar Near Year celebration is obviously canceled due to the pandemic and theme park closures, but that didn’t stop the merchandise (which is designed and produced months or years in advance).

This children’s hooded sweatshirt is very cute.

A different Lunar New Year shirt design for the ladies.

Lunar New Year mouse ear headband for $29.99.

This Lunar New Year spirit jersey can be yours for $74.99.

A ton of 2021 merchandise is now available. This is just a small selection of items to commemorate what will hopefully be a much better year than the last.

If you’re curious about how busy Downtown Disney and Buena Vista street is during weekdays, the answer is not at all. Obviously this is during work and school time, but if you’re looking for ways to shop and walk around without coming in to contact with very many people this is the way to do it.

Heading over to the Disney Home store we see a selection of lovely aprons ($34.99) and dishtowels ($19.99).

Orange Bird is a resident of Walt Disney World but it items always seem to find their way over to the west coast as well.

Very nice Enchanted Tiki Room towel and apron.

This dishtowel has a map of Disneyland with a fun retro-inspired look.

I sure hope these themed spatulas are more practical than they look.

These sponges that look like Disney ride vehicles and Sleeping Beauty Castle are great, but I’m curious how they would look after a couple days of use in an actual kitchen.

These oven mitts are reasonably priced at $14.99 each.

I’m not sure if this blanket is new or not, but it has a nice and simple design along with some great colors.

A potholder with Drizella from Cinderella for $19.99. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing this in one of Derek’s Disney outlet reports sooner rather than later.

A variety of Disney dog and cat merchandise has been trickling in over the past month or so. My peroneal favorite is this squeaky monorail chew toy.

Picture frames to show off all the good girls and boys out there.

Disney dog and cat magnets.

Shockingly, this isn’t the worst Disney shirt in this post!

Here it is! Possibly the worst Disney shirt you’ll see all year, and we’re only halfway through January.

That’s it for this update. If you’re a fan of either of the shirts in this post I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

    I’m all for under-represented Disney characters, but. . .a Drizella potholder? How random is that? I mean. . .she did fall in love with a baker in one of the sequels, but personally I try to forget those.

      Right? Where did they pull that one out of?

    That last tee is one they should shoot out of t-shirt cannons every time they make an announcement of a program or project they are discontinuing. Sorcerers of MK ending…boom, Disney this. EMH discontinued…boom, Disney this. Magical Express is going away in 2022…boom, Disney this. DL AP’s….you get the idea. We love Disney. We get that the pandemic has taken a huge toll. I’m mainly joking, but it was the first thing that popped into my head When I saw those shirts. It’s hard to believe those shirts got the green light for production.

      It really does look like something that would be given out at a trade show and then people wear it when they’re mowing the lawn.
