One thing you may not know about us is that in addition to all of the places you can find us on social media, Wendy and I have a second Instagram account called Girls Gone Disney. Wendy is a fairly recently Disney fan and annual pass holder, while I have been a lifelong fan, holding an annual pass on and off since my teens. The account details our Disney experience from two different perspectives.
It was an easy decision to create this gift guide for Disney fans, as every single time the two of us step into Disneyland, we spend half of our time browsing in the shops making mental wish lists of all of the things we want to own.
If you have a Disney fan in your life, we’ve created this gift guide to help you find just the right gift for them.

Gift Guide for Disney Fans – Spirit Jerseys
When these spirit jerseys were originally released I might have rolled my eyes. WHO would want to wear THAT I wondered both to myself and occasionally out loud. I now admit to being charmed by these, even though the price tag for what is essentially a t-shirt is rather steep. I browse through the stores every single time I’m in Disneyland, changing my mind about which one I want on every visit. These are the mark of a true Disney fan, but the real questions is, which one will you choose? You can see them all of the currently available spirit jerseys here.
Gift Guide for Disney Fans – Loungefly Backpacks
One of our favorite games to play when we’re at Disneyland is “spot the cutest Loungefly bag.” No I couldn’t possibly tell you which one I like best (although the food icons bag is really cute) but much like the spirit jerseys above, I find myself coveting a different one on each visit. You can find all of the currently available Loungefly Backpacks here.
Pins for Pin Traders
I have been an annual pass holder for close to twenty years combined and I have never once participated in pin trading. However, Wendy has started a pin collection and I can’t help eye the heaps of adorable pins every time we’re at Disneyland. The best selection can be found in the parks, and the true appeal is trading of course, but giving someone a pin featuring their favorite ride, movie or snack would be a sweet gift that they can show off on their next visit.
Mickey and Minnie Ears
It can be argued that these ears are the ultimate Disney accessory and like many of the above options, you can find a pair for just about every type of Disney fan. We’re featuring both the licensed park ears and our favorite Etsy seller whose ears are a steal, ship quickly, and are light as a feather.
Books are a great way to get the Disney experience when you can’t make a regular visit. We’ve found books for all ages that will give you a peek behind the curtain, remind you of the iconic posters at the park entrance, allow you to cook like a princess, and bring a little Disney knowledge to your littlest fans.
In the name of continuing the magic of a Disney visit when you just can’t get yourself to the parks, we love that so many vendors are making candles that recreate the scent-memories of your favorite spots in the parks. Whether it’s the scent of the orange groves as you soar over California, the summer scent of a Dole Whip, or the interior of your favorite hotel, there’s a scent for just about every favorite.
Disney at Home
From the obvious red, black and white Mickey utensils to the subtle Mickey stamped utensil jar, there are a lot of ways to add Disney touches to your house without resorting to Mickey-shaped pillows on every couch.
