Disney finally released the Spirit Jersey everyone had been wanting, the “EARidescense” 50th Anniversary Spirit Jersey. However, this long awaited release was met with much disappointment. The spirit jersey that buyers received doesn’t look like it does online at shopDisney.
In an Walt Disney World Annual Passholder Facebook Group, many were upset at the look and quality of the spirit jersey.
The Walt Disney World version of this spirit jersey is supposed to have the 50th Anniversary logo on the front with Walt Disney World written on the back whereas the Disneyland one had Mickey on the front and Disneyland written on the back. There is also a Disneyland Paris one that is mostly identical to the Disneyland version. Many users who purchased the Walt Disney World version on shopDisney are getting spirit jerseys that have Mickey on the front and just simply “Disney” on the back. They also added that the quality of the jersey was not worth the price tag of $120. Needless to say, buyers did not get what they wanted nor paid for.
The correct version has sequins on the back and the one shipped out apparently is the puff paint.
TikTok user @mermaidfantasea posted the following videos on it.

Users in the Facebook group called Disney to get this wrong fixed, and there has been a variance of responses from Disney.

Obviously, Disney needs to correct this issue because buyers are not getting what they paid for. For $120, these spirit jerseys were promised looking one way, and that is not what was given. The quality and the promised design need to be addressed.
