NEW ‘Happily Ever After’ Merchandise at Magic Kingdom

‘Happily Ever After’, which combines the magic of Disney storytelling, beloved Disney characters, fireworks and more, debuted at Magic Kingdom park last month and was an instant hit with park guests. And now fans can celebrate the nighttime spectacular with special merchandise now available at Magic Kingdom.

Above is the  show poster created by Brett Owens, Senior Graphic Designer with Disney Parks Live Entertainment.

“When developing the poster, we chose to highlight key characters that make ‘Happily Ever After’ so special,” explained Brett. “It was important to show these characters setting out on their hero’s journey as the magic transforms Cinderella Castle into some of the locations we visit in the show.”

You can find the poster under the train station tunnel near the entrance to Main Street, U.S.A. It joins some of the most iconic Disney Parks attraction posters at Magic Kingdom Park.

The poster was recently added to the Art of Demand kiosks in the Art of Disney locations. Guests should look for it under the “Attraction Poster” section. There are three paper and three canvas options available for printing. Guests can also have their image framed and shipped home.

At the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A., guests will find other products including t-shirts for adults and kids, a logo hat, and a 16-ounce Tervis tumbler. The image of Cinderella Castle, the key hole, and a stylized logo from the poster were included on several of the items.

Guests will also find two ceramic ornaments with the show’s logo.

Other items include a t-shirt for Annual Passholders (please present a valid Annual Pass in order to purchase); a tank top with a beautiful nighttime image of Cinderella Castle for women; and an open edition logo pin (available mid-summer).

In July, Disney is introducing a light-up headband which contains clear mouse ears that light up. They are different from Magic with Magic items, which will light up in time with or in the same color scheme during “Happily Ever After.”

Items are available at select merchandise locations throughout Magic Kingdom Park. Guests can also find select items using the Shop Disney Parks app.
