As you all know, I love Disney. However, I’m really not a massive fan of anything really tacky, garish and in your face unless I’m in the parks. I’d much rather purchase an Etsy alternative Disney top than one from Disney covered in Princesses. That’s just not my style! After booking Disneyland Paris, I’ve started having a look at a few different Disney inspired shops and brands online so thought I’d share some new and older ones that I love! Etsy has a lot of options so most are from there and all the ones I’ve included are UK based.
1. To Sparkle and Beyond
First up is To Sparkle and Beyond with some gorgeous printed makeup bags, scrunchies and more! I’ve just noticed the store is on vacation at the moment but hopefully, they’ll be back soon. This caught my eye because I have a makeup bag that is similar to their products that you can see above. My mum got me it for Christmas from a fair so we have no idea where my specific item is from but these are very similar.
2. Adam Francis Art
I came across this store when I was searching for some Disney prints from the UK. I love Adam’s sketches of the parks, especially the one of Main Street USA. Most of the prints that I have looked at are high quality and copies of a 30 + hour illustration and watercolour piece. He also has a fair few non-Disney pieces such as cities. There are some gorgeous drawings of Manchester!
Although some pieces can be really tacky, generally you can get a few really good pieces. I’ve purchased a glitter and black pleather Mickey backpack for Disneyland Paris trips, a chip t-shirt and the majority of my Disney pyjamas too. I even managed to pick up a Buzz and Woody baby grow for my friend’s little boy. They’re such good prices and whether you want clothing, accessories or homewares, you can normally find some great items in Primark.
4. Pride Rock Prints
These t-shirts from Pride Rock Prints are some of the best Disney inspired brands I’ve come across on Etsy! I’m going to order a couple for my trip but still haven’t narrowed down which ones I want yet. “I’m here for the snacks” does pretty much sum up one of the reasons I love Disney Park so that’s a pretty high contender. They’re based in Sheffield so aren’t too far away for items being delivered for me. There’s a good selection of drawstring bags to which I’m tempted to buy for one of the park days.
5. Maple and Whisky Candle Co.
I’ve spoken about Maple and Whisky Candle Co. before but they are just so good and I need to get another order in. The candles they sell are incredible and take you straight back to the parks with scents. I want to get a few autumnal ones for when the nights start drawing in and the weather turns colder.
There are so many Disney inspired shops out there now, you can even get some really good pieces in supermarkets like Asda and Tesco! Where are your favourite places to shop for Disney?
