Walt Disney World Gift Ideas for Father’s Day 2014

In anticipation of Father’s Day, Steven Miller, Merchandise Communications Manager for Disney, has put together a blog highlighting some fantastic fathers day gifts that any Disney-loving dad would adore. As a proud father himself, he has fond memories of taking his children to Disney Parks, just as his own father did with him and his sister.

Drawing from his recent visit to Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort, Steven shares some unique and exciting gift ideas that would make great additions to any dad’s wish list. While he emphasizes that the true gift of Father’s Day is spending time with loved ones, he acknowledges that these special presents would bring a smile to any Disney dad’s face.

The Disney pin team is releasing a limited edition pin, featuring Pongo and some puppies from Walt Disney’s “101 Dalmatians.” This pin has an edition size of 2,500, and will be released in multiple locations at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts on June 12 (hey, that’s my father’s birthday so happy birthday, Dad).

I was delighted to find a new graphic novel featuring one of my favorite attractions, Space Mountain. This recently released book was written by Bryan Miller (no relation) and illustrated by Kelley Jones. In a word, it’s super amazing (okay, that’s two words but I’m excited there is a graphic novel from Disney).

I was also excited to find more Disney Parks replica signs at the Art of Disney location including one for The Great Movie Ride attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I also love the Steampunk-inspired locomotive from the Mechanical Kingdom series released a few months ago. That item is now available on our Disney Parks online store along with the other figurines in that series.

I’ve been in the market for a watch, so a new Disney timepiece by Bulova at World of Disney caught my eye. In that shop, I also found a new Mr. Incredible T-shirt (because dads are pretty incredible) and a fun fedora (I love hats!).

Finally, I’m obsessed with coffee so I adore these three mugs inspired by Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park, the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Spaceship Earth at Epcot.

Happy Father’s Day!
