Walt Disney World Releases Sneak Peek at Upcoming ‘Vault Collection’ Merchandise

It’s almost time for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World and with that will come many, many, many articles about the event and merchandise. Today we have a sneak peek a the collection I’m a bit excited about, The Vault Collection.

The Vault Collection is inspired by two-different approaches according to Merchandise Graphic Designer Desma Thompson:

  • Replica” – Looking to the 1970s for those key souvenirs we lovingly re-created for this celebration.
  • “Inspired By” – Taking cues from the retro art and styles over the decades, we’ve created a collection of modern and relevant items appealing to our guests today.

For me, the inspiration was our most fervent fans and collectors. I’m a huge fan and collector myself, and I know what it feels like to get something you love and didn’t think you’d ever find. These replica items will take some of our guests back to a time long ago when they were little and experienced the parks for the first time with their friends and family. Fun fact: A group of our team members went to the Walt Disney Archives to photograph many of the incredible souvenirs, and used those photos to help create some of the Vault Collection pieces you will see starting Oct. 1!”

Here’s a look a some of the items coming. There will be much more coming.

The Vault Collection will start releasing on October 1, at the start of the ‘The World’s Most Magical Celebration’ aka Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration.  Various pieces will be released periodically throughout the 18-month event.
