    I am going to the parks with my father in February 2023 for a graduation trip, as I am graduating early in January. When will the 2023 graduation merchandise come out? Or if there is no answer, could I possibly have an est? Thanks!

    Hey Howdy Hey Michelle and welcome to planDisney!

    Congratulations on your path to completing your college degree! As you are finishing off the last of your studies and preparing for graduation, I am so excited to hear you will be celebrating your big achievement with us at Walt Disney World Resort! Thank you so much for your question about graduation merchandise. Let's see what we can come up with!

    Typically with merchandise drops, Disney does not usually give much of a big lead on when new items will appear unless they are expecting very high demands for certain items such as popcorn buckets! You more than likely can expect the theme of graduation merchandise to be available during the big graduation season towards the end of spring and early summer. You might still want to check around during your trip at various locations to see if they do start trickling out some special items early for those graduating early like yourself. 

    If you are looking around for certain items, Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs would be my "go-to" places to look. The Emporium in Magic Kingdom, Creations Shop in EPCOT and World of Disney in Disney Springs would be the best places you might find these items during your trip. These are three of the larger stores on Disney property and they seem to be the most well stocked. Cast Members at any merchandise location are very knowledgeable as well, so if you are not finding what you are looking for, ask one of them if they have any insights as well. 

    If you are not able to find what you are looking for during your trip, don't worry, you still have options! Over at ShopDisney, you will find so many options as well. You might also find some items from the graduation collection you can purchase and ship right to your home! 

    Best of luck as you are finishing the last few months of college and planning your Magical celebration! Please feel free to stop back and let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
