8 Of Our Favorite Disney Theme Park Style Trends of 2018
What a fantastic year 2018 was for Disney fans! Not only did highlights include new eateries, attractions and exciting seasonal happenings on both coasts but we also saw our fair share of fun Disney trends! As we say goodbye to 2018 we here at MickeyBlog thought we’d take a quick look back at some of our favorite trends from last year!
1. Rose Gold Everything
It may seem way in the past, but 2018 kicked off with one of the biggest Disney trends we’ve ever seen – the arrival of Rose Gold. The year starting with a mad rush to pick up a coveted pair of the Rose Gold Ears and eventually extended to encompass everything from spirit jerseys to cupcakes! The trend soon made way to a range of other popular colors (Millennial Pink anyone!?) and is still going strong. As a matter of fact, if you didn’t make it to the parks last year, you can still pick up some Rose Gold ears for your 2019 visit here.
2. Spirit Jerseys
Spirit Jerseys came back in a big way in 2018. Head to the parks in 2019 and you are found to find this item in a variety of colors, fabrics and patterns. You can even get them themed after some of your favorite theme parks attractions. ShopDisney also has a range of fun Spirit Jersey options available for those looking to pick up a few items before heading to the parks!
3. Rainbow Merchandise
We absolutely couldn’t get enough of Disney’s amazing array of rainbow items that came out last Fall. Coinciding with the Pride festivities at Disneyland Resort, they released some pretty awesome merchandise. Guests could get kitted out in everything from t-shirts, ears, baseball caps, pins and so much more. This is definitely one of our favorite trends of the year and one we hope will make a resurgence in 2019! You can also find the Rainbow Mickey Mouse Ears hat available online at ShopDisney here.
4. Iridescent Treats
Hot on the heels of the Rose Gold Millenial Pink trend, Disney began introducing a range of whimsical iridescent treats to the theme parks during the Summer of 2018. Guests could tuck into delicious goodies like the mermaid cupcake above or opt for times like the Iridescent Rhino Cupcake at Animal Kingdom and the Unicorn Pops being offered at The Ganachery in Disney Springs. If you’re sad you missed this trend in 2018, don’t worry. You can still purchase a pair of Iridescent Minnie Ears at ShopDisney here.
5. Princess-Themed TOMS
This year, Disney visitors were sporting some pretty fancy footwear thanks to the awesome new xDisney collection from TOMSwhich debuted in shops last Summer. The 30-piece capsule collection features Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Snow White with artwork coming from original prints from the Walt Disney Archives. Visit TOMS website to pick up a pair sporting your favorite Disney characters! You’ll find the complete line here.
6. Toy Story Merchandise
Along with the arrival of Toy Story Land in the Summer of 2018, came a fantastic line of Toy Story-themed goodies that were swept off the shelves. Some of our favorites include the alien headband featuring the lovable little green friends from Alien Swirling Saucer as well as the Slinky Dog headband. This four-legged friend has a prominent presence in this new whimsical land with the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster. You can find versions of both of these delightful items at Shop Disney here.
7. Adult Makeovers with Character Couture
For all those stylish ladies feeling left out when it comes to princess makeovers at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Disney World introduced Character Couture makeovers this year for adults as well as children.

Disney fans’ love for all things Dooney & Bourke was still going strong in 2018 with amazing lines covering everything from Mulan and Mary Poppins to Lady and the Tramp and the iconic Walk Through the Park line (which was one of our favorites and is pictured above.)
