February 2016 Merchandise Update – Marketplace Co-Op and Tren-D

I apparently can’t find a good picture of the exterior of the Marketplace Co-Op, which is one of the more interesting stores at Disney Springs. Not a whole lot about what’s offered is unique to the store, but it does offer a lot of what you might consider to be unique to Walt Disney World merchandise, if that makes any sense. The store is made up of six different areas and some portions of it have been substituted for something else. For example, Beautifully Disney and The Trophy Room are long gone. You’ll find it in between Ghirardelli and Once Upon A Toy.

As usual, most of the items pictured are new-ish. Others probably aren’t. Most everything should be available from the Shop Disney Parks app. All pictures are from the last two weeks so it’s all pretty current.

D-Tech On Demand is still here. As long as you have a recent iPhone or Samsung Galaxy then you can customize a variety of phone cases:

That puts us across from the entrance to Swiss Family Treehouse or just across the Adventureland Bridge from the Hub. It marks Magic Kingdom’s first table service addition since the incredibly popular Be Our Guest Restaurant opened all the way back in December of 2012.

Walt Disney World 2016 Dated Merchandise

Edit: Added about 20 new items at the top:

Now that it’s about half way to 2017, I thought it would be prudent to post a lot of the 2016 merchandise available in the theme parks. Most or all of what you see should be available via DisneyStore.com or via the Shop Disney Parks app. Try searching for “2016.” The app should have free ground shipping through the end of the week and a better selection, so you might as well if you see something you like. Now that the app exists, I’m not sure there’s much of a point in doing these sorts of merchandise posts, but it does offer an opportunity to perhaps see some things that you wouldn’t notice otherwise.

Items added 2/6:
