    We have a trip planned to Disney world on January 1st. Will they have 2023 merchandise, or will it only be 50th anniversary merchandise since that is extended to March

    Howdy, John! Welcome to planDisney! I’m so happy to be able to help you today.

    Oh my goodness, how fabulous to be kicking off 2023 with a visit to Walt Disney World! I can’t imagine a better way to ring in the new year than enjoying the magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Although, I have to admit; I’m just a LITTLE jealous.

    There is so much to enjoy in the parks these days, but one thing that is always a thrill (at least for me) is the SHOPPING! With so many incredible shops around all four theme parks, I’m often tempted to bring an extra suitcase just to fill with all the awesome merchandise I’ve purchased during my stay. Now, while there is certainly a lot of fabulous merchandise in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration, other merchandise is still available in the stores that are not specific to the celebration. However, there is currently no official word as to whether or not there will be items specifically mentioning “2023” available on January 1st. So, I would recommend keeping an eye on, where you can get a sneak peek of some of the merchandise that may be available for purchase while you’re there.

    If you’re looking for the ultimate shopping experience at Walt Disney World, you must head over to World of Disney at Disney Springs, the world's largest Disney retail store. I swear, every time I walk into this store, my jaw drops. There is such a wide variety of incredible Disney products available here you’re bound to find the perfect souvenir to commemorate your fabulous vacation.

    I do hope this answer has been helpful to you, John! You are visiting during such a wonderful time with so much to do and see at Walt Disney World! So, please visit us again soon if you have any questions or want to hear some of our recommendations. We would love to help make your vacation as magical as possible!

    Until next time,
