A year ago, Disney announced it would stop selling merchandise in stores and online and instead offer customers the chance to pick up a piece of jewelry at the theme park at a discounted price.
Today, that offer has ended.
Disney also announced that it is going to discontinue the purchase of merchandise at Walt Disney World Resorts hotels at Disney theme parks.
In an announcement, Disney said that “Disney’s mission is to inspire and educate through entertainment.
Our mission is our commitment to create a world that is rich in imagination, exploration, and discovery.
We are making this change to ensure that all guests who visit our theme parks can find the best value in our products and services.”
The announcement comes as part of a larger restructuring that also saw Disney take over the publishing rights for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
“Today, we are going to give our guests a choice,” Disney said in the announcement.
“We are excited about the possibilities of choosing from a wide variety of Disney products, including apparel, accessories, jewelry, and more.
We are also excited about our partnership with the iconic Walt Disney Co., which includes the Walt Disney Store and the Walt-branded retail stores and restaurants.”
In a statement, Disneyland CEO Tom Staggs said that Walt Disney Parks and Resorts is “excited about the future of our Disneyland Resort and our partnership to bring more guests to the resort each year.”
“We are also thrilled that Disney will be returning the Disney Store to our parks and resorts, and are excited to continue partnering with Walt Disney Park Resorts,” Stagg, who took over in 2014, said.
“We look forward to the next chapter in our relationship with Walt and we hope that Disney’s customers will also welcome the change.
As the Walt company moves forward with our mission to inspire, educate, and connect with guests, we look forward a new chapter in this partnership for our guests.”
A few things to keep in mind when shopping at Disney stores:The Walt Disney Stores will be no longer offering discounted merchandise at Disney’s theme parks for at least the next six months.
That means that if you buy at Disney World, you will be paying a $50.00 annual membership fee.
Disney will also no longer be offering discounted gift cards at Disney Stores.
Walt Disney World Resort will also be ending the offer of a gift card at Walt Dining Plan, Walt Disney’s gift card program, which was available for the first time on the Walt Dine Plan app for select restaurants starting on July 20.
A Walt Disney Gift Card can be used at Disney Parks gift shops or at Disney Gift Cards kiosks.
You can also purchase gift cards online through the WaltDisneyStore.com app.
Disney is also discontinuing the use of gift cards in its Disney Stores, Disney California Adventures, and Walt Disney WDW Resorts.
The company will continue to offer gift cards through the Disney Gift cards program.
Disney’s Walt Disney Resort stores will be selling Disney Gift Packs for guests to purchase up to four items at a time.
These gift packs will be available to guests of all ages, and can be purchased at Disney-branded stores, Disney-owned restaurants, and through Disney gift card kiosks, Disney’s WaltDiningPlan.com, or at WaltDisney.com gift card shops.
Additionally, the Walt Park Resort will be offering gift packs to guests to use at Disney parks and the Disneyland Resort.
When guests visit the Disneyland Resorts, the price of these gift packs can be reduced by 50%.
In addition, guests will have the opportunity to buy a Disney gift certificate for a Disney Gift Pack.
Disney Gift Certificates are valid for up to three days at Disney Resort gift shops.
