You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy all things Disney — the magic of fairy tales and princesses is still very real at any age. That’s why we’ve collected a variety of gifts perfect for the adult Disney fans in your life — or, really, just a collection of items you might want to add to your own holiday wish list this year. If you’re missing Disneyland and want to cheer yourself up, this gift guide is for you too.
If you want to give your loved one a Disney gift but aren’t sure what items they already have or what they’re hoping to get in their stocking this year, make it easy on yourself with a Disney Gift Card eGift that can be used at shopDisney.com, the Disney store, Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, and more. It will be sent within hours to any valid email address, but just know that it could take up to 24 hours to receive. Grab one in $25 increments up to $150, and in denominations of $200, $250, $300 and $500 after that. It’s simple and you don’t have to brave the outside world to do it.
Yes, most Disney fanatics will likely already have a subscription to Disney+. But on the off chance you know one who doesn’t, plans start at $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. Disney is also offering a special bundle that includes Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for just $12.99 a month total, a 25% savings from the individual prices.
While there are many different types of Disney-themed face masks for sale on the Disney Store’s website, we’re partial to these Pixar designs featuring “Up,” Pizza Planet from “Toy Story,” the “Coco” logo, and the Buzz Lightyear uniform from “Toy Story.” The new and improved mask style features a better fit, lightweight fabrication with increased breathability, and elasticized ear loops for comfort and stretch. They come in four different sizes to ensure a perfect fit — Youth Small, Youth Medium, Adult Large, and Adult Extra Large. An important note: They’re not for surgical or industrial use.
Lean into the Christmas of it all with this festive sweater that features a string of colorful lights surrounding Mickey, whose shimmering Santa hat is topped by a 3D bobble. The ribbed collar, cuffs, and hem add comfort and style to this piece, which is part of Disney’s Holiday Cheer Collection.
While there are a wide array of ornaments available at the Disney Store, we’re loving this fully sculpted musical ornament inspired by the upcoming “Soul,” which hits Disney+ on Christmas Day. Press the button on the base to hear music teacher and jazz pianist Joe Gardner play you a song, press it again to stop. It’s freestanding so you could display it on a desk or attach the satin ribbon and hang it on your tree. Other details include sheet music, Mr. Mittens, and a coffee mug. The three required batteries are included.
Outside of the silver glitter page edges that certainly evoke the feminine world of the princess, this book by Charles Solomon chronicles the Disney princess from 1937 to today — from Snow White to Moana — and is a fantastic history on the fairy tales behind the characters. It also includes beautiful, never-before-seen concept art of how the characters were originally envisioned and how they ended up, plus a history lesson on their development. It’s great for anyone who wants to teach their kids about princesses, but also emphasize the depth of animation artistry as well. Princesses with their own chapters include Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Belle, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tiana, Rapunzel, Merida, and Moana.
New Mickey and Minnie designs adorn these high-quality 15 oz food-grade stainless steel water bottles that can keep beverages cold for up to 24 hours or hot for 12 hours thanks to the S’well brand’s double-layered, vacuum-insulated construction. The opening is wide enough for most ice cubes for easy refilling, and the BPA-free bottles fit in most standard cup holders.
Many people aren’t going into the office right now, but if you are — or just want to be prepared for when the world opens up again — this Mickey-themed lunch kit is a sophisticated way to celebrate your love of all things Disney while also keeping your lunch cool. (It would also be perfect for a solo park picnic if you just want to get some fresh air and dine al fresco.)
This insulated polyester canvas cooler has a front pocket that unzips to reveal a knife, fork, spoon, napkin, and mouse-shaped salt and pepper shakers. It also comes with the Picnic Time Family of Brands’ Built to Last Lifetime Pledge: to repair or replace if defective for any reason.
Follow in the footsteps of various Disney employees during a typical day working for the company in this book, which is the companion to the Disney+ documentary and series that saw filmmakers and photographers capture what happens behind closed doors on one Thursday in 2019. The photos included in this book by journalist and Disney fan Bruce C. Steele were taken on that single day, including Tokyo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Paris, Madrid, the Bahamas, Costa Rica, and dozens of places throughout the United States, including the day’s end at sunset on the Aulani resort in Hawaii.
The book profiles 80 “cast members” who opened up their workshops, dressing rooms, kitchens, cubicles, TV studios, labs, locomotive engines, and other diverse workspaces to the world as they revealed their stories that led them to their current jobs.
Pay tribute to Walt Disney’s beginnings with this Spirit Jersey that features Mickey Mouse in his 1928 public debut as Steamboat Willie.

The pullover jersey also features long sleeves, a pieced yoke, dropped shoulders, ribbed cuffs, shirttail hem, and a woven Spirit Jersey label at the side hem.
Disney up your game night with this two-to-four player game inspired by the beloved Haunted Mansion ride. Roam the Endless Hallway to contact the Happy Haunts living in the house (of course, you’ll still have to beware of hitchhiking ghosts so they don’t follow you home). You’ll be able to explore all the manor’s many rooms, including the Ballroom, Attic, Graveyard, and beyond — including Madame Leota’s Séance Room. Collect Ghost cards in sets — each set is worth a different point value — in this game suitable for players aged nine and up. Each game should take around 30 minutes to play.
Throw it back to the ’80s with this modern twist on a retro neon design. The front of the t-shirt features a full front Mickey pop art image with color-blocked sleeves and back panel. It’s made from Jersey knit and has a ribbed crew neck, and was recently marked down to just $16.
You can get yourself a fancy cheese board set themed to any of your favorite pop culture entities, but will all of them have the built-in pun potential of this Mickey Mouse-shaped board? Definitely not. Cheese lovers of all species will enjoy this rubber wood board with a pull-out drawer that fits a three-piece stainless steel cheese tool set (one hard cheese knife, one chisel knife, and one cheese fork). Mickey Mouse is engraved on one side and the utensils are all emblazoned with Mickey silhouettes. The Picnic Time Family of Brands Built to Last Lifetime Guarantee means that you’re protected against any defects.
You’ll need something to serve that cheese on, and this eight-pack of ultra-strong, triple-layer, non-porous, and easy-to-clean glass plates come with different Mickey Mouse illustrations.

They come with a three-year limited warranty in case the plates aren’t quite as sturdy as you’d hoped.

We’re getting some major Mickey Mouse meets J Crew vibes from this long-sleeve t-shirt, which features a cycle of cartoon poses featuring Mickey Mouse as he runs across the midsection contrast stripe. The aligned long sleeves mean it’s perfect for cold or warm weather.
When Disney magic and holiday magic combine, the result is this hardcover photo book showcasing Disney’s key locations and how they celebrate fall and winter’s biggest holidays. Researchers, writers, and photographers examined more than six decades of holiday experiences from twelve theme parks, dozens of Disney’s resort hotels and cruise ships, dining and shopping districts. Nearly 1,900 photographs feature “special holiday menu offerings, the biggest parade and stage productions and nighttime spectacles, the tiniest decorating details from amazing artists and designers, and, of course, the most significant historical holiday events.”

It comes with 558 white cards and 260 black cards and, the creators stress, is made “for fans of Disney with a wicked sense of humour. It is a party game for terrible people. So trust me, you don’t want to take it with you at family celebrations. The game is intended exclusively for adult players (17+). You must have an evil sense of humor.” Noted! It also comes in a red version.
Harness the evil inside of you for this Disney Villains-themed edition of Monopoly.

Other fun additions to the classic board game include Poison Apple cards that give players an advantage (stealing coins and properties, placing free Thickets) and Villain contracts — you can hire the most famous Disney villains to buy and sell contracts instead of locations. When you pass Go, put the Flames of Power ring on your token and use the special ability shown on your character’s Power card.
