Need help shopping for that Disney fan in your life? As people who love to buy things, we’re here to help!
In recent years, we’ve switched almost exclusively to online shopping. Well, I have. Sarah still likes B&M stores for clothing, but I think it’s more difficult to purchase women’s clothing without trying it on. We also buy groceries in stores. That’s about it. Our Amazon Prime account gets a serious work-out for all other items, as I find Amazon typically has better prices thanks to lower overhead. However, this isn’t a treatise on the excellence of Amazon.com, so I’ll just go ahead with the lists.
First, here’s what I think would be good for Disney fans. I already own a lot of these items, although many I do not as they’re not “age appropriate.” That said, I can’t wait until we have kids so that I can play with Legos again!
Disney Fan List:
The Muppet Show: Season One – Muppet-Mania is sweeping the world, and for good reason. See Jim Henson’s original 1970s witty-creation that started it all. Probably one of TV’s best-ever variety shows!
A Disneyland Christmas – My Kindle eBook featuring 170+ beautiful Disneyland Christmas photos, reviews of Christmas foods at Disneyland, and tips for the holidays!
Celebrations Holiday Special Edition – Lou Mongello and Tim Foster put together a great Christmas coffee table book. Of course, I might be a little biased because I’m one of the principle photographers for the book. If you love Christmas at Walt Disney World, this is an absolutely great buy.
How to Photograph Fireworks eBook – I co-authored this book along with the DisneyPhotographyBlog.com guys. It’s a great resource for DSLR or point & shoot camera users. Use code CHRISTMAS at checkout for 50% off the book!
Disney Food Blog Guide to Walt Disney World Dining – Disney Food Blog is easily the best resource for Disney dining, and the DFB Guide to Walt Disney World Dining takes the best aspects of the site and puts them together in a beautifully designed eBook! You might also consider checking out the new DFB Magic Kingdom Dining Adventures.
Dinner at Victoria & Albert’s or Napa Rose – Two restaurants that otherwise might be tough to justify visiting due to the cost. Create a “gift certificate” for a loved one for a visit to one of these two restaurants. They’re both worth the money, and you’re loved one will appreciate the effort of a “homemade” gift. (That’s really easy to make!)
The Muppets: A Green and Red Christmas – Sarah can recite all of the lines in “North Pole Comedy Club.” This is one of our favorite Christmas albums, and is a stark contrast to a lot of Christmas albums that are merely the same track lists performed by different musicians. This one is really unique.
Kinect Disneyland Adventures – If you don’t own a Kinect, buy one just for this game. Seriously. In some regards it is aimed at a younger audience (I don’t find myself wanting to virtually hug characters), but the mini-games are fun for the whole family–even adults!
TouringPlans.com One-Year Subscription – As many of you may know, I work for TouringPlans.com, so again, I’m biased. However, I only work there because I strongly believe in the product. Check out the new Optimized Touring Plans to get an idea of the awesome tools included in one of these subscriptions!
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City – Delayed until 2012, it’s probably not a good Christmas gift, but I’m still looking forward to this. I absolutely love Resident Evil games, even the arcade-style shooters.
