Coming Soon: New Haunted Mansion Merch
And it's great
. I want that hourglass. And the coasters. And the music box. AND THE PRICES DAMMIT. (Although the comments have more information, including the approximate release schedule.)
What Disney merch do you have that's really cool? I've got a bunch of the cloisonne trading pins, a table-top Christmas tree, metal Christmas ornaments from various years, some excellent fridge magnets, and a lovely Mickey trivet.This entry was originally posted at http://filkertom.dreamwidth.org/1603931.html. You may comment there or here, although LJ tends to have a livelier conversation at this time.

You know what sucks... the fact that Disney doesn't allow Goths in to that ride anymore, well, unless they're in disguise as mundanes.

I don't collect Disneyanna per se, but I do have at least one version of every Disney dragon that exists in my dragon collection.
Figment and Maleficent everyone expects. Most people also remember Elliot and Mushu if they think for a bit.
But I also have a plushie version of The Reluctant Dragon (complete with little pink teacup) as well as the enamel collector pin that's been out of production for more than a few years.
I've yet to see a version of Madam Mim as a dragon, but I would be quite happy to have that...
Despite the IP ownership rules, I do not consider the Muppets to be a Disney property. That said, I also want an Uncle Deadly, but I have been unable to find one so far either.
If there are any other "Disney" dragons, I'm unaware of them. (so please let me know so I can get 'hold of something)

What about American Dragon Jake Long?

not much, though I have an original test track shirt (the one that looked like a real crew shirt crossed with a golf/polo shirt) and a figment hat, both of which are discontinued
we did have a local policeman cruise by our garage sale today who was looking for cool disney stuff (did not have anything out for sale)

I collect "Beauty and the Beast" - not just Disney, but in general (which generally means children's storybooks and the occasional item from the Ron Perlman/Linda Hamilton TV series). Unfortunatly, I'm not interested in "Beauty" toys and memorabilia without the "Beast", and there's hardly any "Beast" merchandise!
I do have, however, a lovely music box - plays the theme while Belle "dances".

Hah, I just got back from a week in Walt Disney World on Thursday (rode Space Mountain, Haunted Mansion, Star Tours, Tower of Terror (ACK!), Pirates of the Caribbean, etc) having a blast, and while my roommate came back with the lanyard of pins, I got a stuffed Dumbo, a set of R2-D2 mouse ears, and a Steampunk Stitch pin. Booyah!!

A metric assload of pins, the BIG Jack Sparrow fig, a silver Jack Sparrow ring, a limited edition PotC print from a special event and this Nintendo DS Lite game system from the premiere of PotC: AWE: http://www.gamesniped.com/2007/09/27/pirates-of-the-caribbean-ltd-edition-nintendo-ds-lite/
Somewhere in my lungs abides a molecule of the same air that Johnny Depp (I'm old, not dead, baby!) and Keith Richards breathed that night. I also said howdy to Bill Nighy that night and Jerry Bruckheimer.

I have the engraved crystal slipper and tiara from Cinderella's Royal Table birthday party my wonderful sweeties arranged for me. ;)

My favorite Disney merch is ridiculously girly. I have a tiny, beautifully perfect blown glass Cinderella slipper necklace pendant, purchased from the glass blower inside Mexico pavilion in EPCOT about 12 years ago. From my teen years, I have the extremely hard-to-find (they were only sold in Disney stores and at the parks, and YEAH I opened them and played with them!) line of Mattel Barbie-sized collector fashion dolls of various Disney characters -- the best one, hands-down, being the Pirate Captain from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, beard and sneer and all!! (Wish I'd had HIM as a kid -- Barbie would never have looked at Ken again...)
More recently, I'm collecting Sephora's limited-edition "Reigning Beauties" cosmetic palettes...they have colors taken from the pan-tones used in the original films, and Disney did all of the beautiful stylized artwork on these things. (Make-up geeking...) They released Cinderella last fall, and Jasmine -- well, I'm waiting for it to come in the mail. Hey, it takes all kinds! ::grin::

My mother has given me blanket permission to take what books I will home with me on each visit. I think on my next trip, I shall fetch back the Disney hardcovers I read as a child, which were separated by category (into, as I recall, science, world events, fantasy and ...something else I'm forgetting). I can't find examples of them online, or I'd point you to them ...but they contained a prose version of Bongo the Wonder Bear in one of the editions, and descriptions of how atomic power worked in another. All published no later than 1975. I'll post more details as I re-read them :>
