Set sail and make a wish on the shining sea!
DisneySea (Tokyo, Japan) – the only one to ever exist in the entire universe – is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, and a number of exclusive merchandises have been released earlier on to mark this big event.
The dominant image on most of the items sold at the DisneySea stores couldn’t look grander with adventurers Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto sailing on a golden ship with Chip and Dale plus the Duffy bears as company. Everyone’s all dressed up in dashing outfits. Even my all-time favorite Donald has his sporty gloves on, which we don’t really see everywhere else.
After a very short and pleasant wait, my 15th anniversary package has finally arrived courtesy of Instagram Disney shop Disneyland Jakarta. Even though I didn’t get the chance to visit (my first trip to DisneySea was back in 2014), I got to at least grab a hold of the magic in the form of the the stuff I ordered (shoutout to TDR Explorer for all the merch previews):
- Assorted cookies that come in a gorgeous limited edition tin box
- 15th anniversary postcard
- Lovely clear holders featuring characters like Anna, Elsa and Rapunzel
- Donald & Daisy mug – Donaisy are my newest OTP, by the way
In light of this Disney-themed post, allow me to present you my little Disney list.
