Resort Specific Merchandise is coming back !

I think Disney listened to all of us complaining that there was little to no resort specific merchandise any longer. Look what's coming !

Yeah I am happy to see more Resort Items show up. I have seen an increase in them, well at least at DVC resorts.

Very cool. Last year I was somewhat disappointed that a lot of the merchandise found at the shops was available either online or in the Disney Store back home. While I understand not everyone has a Disney Store in their hometown I like to bring back things that are unique and specific to our trip.

Same here...our family was bored with the same old merchandise wherever we went. On our last trip we barley came home with any souvenirs, so I can't wait to see what's in the resort shops this summer.

Can we say food issues?

They've had it at a few resorts for the past year and I know it was really popular. I meant to go by BC last Oct to look at it (as that was where I stayed trip before last), but didn't get there. I'd be happy if POFQ was included in stuff this year but it may still be deluxe and DVC resorts from the look of it.

I hope they continue, I think they would get a decent return on the investment at this point.

I love this! I've been missing resort specific merch.... It was always nice to get something from the trip with the resort we stayed at on it. I hope they make resort specific Christmas ornaments!

Adorable stuff! I wish they would do more phone covers for Droids. Not everyone has iPhones.

This is great news!!! I hope they start updating their pins more often. I get a new resort pin every year and last year we stayed at POR and it was the same pin that I had bought several years ago!

YAY! It's about time...I do NOT like the generic across-the-board stuff that has filled the shelves for the past few years!

I still have my All-Star Resorts t-shirt from 2006. I'd love to get another one.
