I love all the new merchandise being released next week for the Tower of Terror but it’s not really for the Tower of Terror… it’s for the Hollywood Tower Hotel. For those of you who love the Tower of Terror as much as I do (I ran the Tower of Terror 10 miler last year!), you will know the back story of this infamous hotel. This hotel is the one the ride is based off of. In fact, it’s what the ride is inside of.The inspiration for this hotel is in Los Angeles and was originally known as La Belle Tour. If you are not familiar with the story of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, I highly recommend going on the ride or watching the Tower of Terror movie (1997) because both will give you an excellent back story. In the meantime, on February 13th (isn’t that fabulous!) the new merchandise will make it’s appearance. Let’s take a look at what we’ll find!
The logo for the hotel will be able to be found on the majority of the merchandise. Apparently, according to Disney Parks Blog, the Disney Design Group was inspired by the Haunted Mansion Authentic program which was released last year. You can totally see this in the design elements if you look closely. There are phone cases, shot glasses (or as Disney calls them, toothpick holders), coasters and even keys and bells for the bell hop! I love the vintage look that they continued through out the collection. The hotel has an old story and I think it’s appropriate to have a vintage feel to the merchandise.
The tee shirts maintain that vintage design and come in an assortment of patterns. I personally love the “You can check in but you can’t check out!” tee. the bellhop cap is also super adorable!
Pin traders will be excited to see all the new pins coming their way. I am in love with the HTH key pin and the Chip and Dale pin. I admit it, I don’t even collect them! I just buy the ones I like and put them on things.. These 2 will be mine for sure.
I think the merchandise is great but I am loving the fact that, if you are at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Friday, February 13th at the Tower Hotel Gifts store, you will be able to meet some of the artists behind this collection!!! From 4-6pm these Disney Artists will be present to share their hard work with you, I desperately wish I could go but I have to work. For those of you who can go, tell them I say hi!
What do you think of the new collection? Will you be there when it is released?? What is your fave part of the collection? let us know in the comment box below.
