New Disney Fall Merchandise

So many Halloween and Fall things to buy! Another of our favorite reasons to visit Disney World in the Fall is the merchandise. While we are chronic browsers, we rarely buy these goodies, because airlines have luggage weight limits. But that doesn’t stop us from staring and wishing and wondering how much shipping it directly home would be. Luckily you can grab loads of the new Fall, Food and Wine, and Halloween Merchandise on shopDisney.com.  Check out the latest Disney Halloween Merchandise for 2022 on the site!
