The Disney Park Christmas Gift Guide 2016

christmas-disney-presents

November has just started. What does it mean? You’re already late on your Christmas shopping and you know it. But there’s worse: you haven’t given your family a list of all the glorious Disney park related stuff you need. And because you are a serious theme park nerd, how can your relatives know the super specific things you want under the Christmas tree, I mean really?

Don’t panic though, you just landed on the only page on the Internet that features everything you want – all you have to do is forward this blog post to your mom and tell her you need everything on it. She’ll dispatch every item to every person who owes you Christmas presents! Oh and if you happen to be that mom, welcome to our geeky community – I love your festive sweater Karen!

But in the meantime, too often I returned home with great memories of a fun day spent in wonderful theme parks, oh-so-ready to spend big bucks to bring something home from the countless gift shops but nothing in these oceans of merchandise items made me want to buy something. It’s not just frustrating for me: it’s also a missed opportunity for theme parks.

Entre diverses annonces, il a notamment révélé un impressionnant concept art de Shanghai Disneyland : un land entier consacré aux pirates. Si l’execution est fidèle à l’illustration, la thématisation de Shanghai Disneyland devrait effectivement être aussi extravagante et minutieusement détaillée qu’à Tokyo DisneySea.

L’année 2013 touche à sa fin.
