Contemporary Resort Specific Merchandise

Why do other deluxe resorts have resort-themed souvenirs but the Contemporary doesn't? Are there any plans for Disney to produce Contemporary specific merchandise?

This issue was brought up by merchandise CM's at CR. Definitely leave WDW feedback if you feel there should be CR merch!

It just doesn't make sense that all of the other deluxe resorts have their own stuff but the Contemporary, a flagship Disney resort, has absolutely nothing to buy with a Contemporary logo or a monorail on it.

Agreed! One would that out of all of the deluxe resorts, CR would be the one to have resort specific merchandise.

I purchased the Contemporary playset and a monorail to run through it as my souvenir. It's on top of my bookshelves now.

CR does have merchandise available, just not much. It is usually over in Fantasia Gifts in the left corner as you enter (along with BLT mdse.), not so much in BVG anymore.

Hubby got a Bay Lake Tower Tshirt when it first opened and now even those are absent. Hope the plan to re-introduce resort-specific merchandise trickles down to the Contemp and to Bay Lake Tower as well. Resort-themed stuff is my favorite type of clothing and souvenir. Come on Mickey bring it back!

Hello Disney, we want to give you more money. Bring resort themed merchandise to the Contemporary.

Seriously, who can we complain to that will listen?

Finally got around to asking Guest Relations about this issue. Hoping for a positive response soon....

Just got off the phone with Guest Relations, who called me about the question I had about CR merchandise.

She said there has been a lot of feedback regarding this issue recently, and that, while no specifics have been given yet, Disney has yet to finalize a line of CR stuff. She assured me that the Disney team in charge of this has listened to the numerous requests. Who knows what we may see in the future?

I was surprised when the caller ID showed "Hollywood Studios". Now I know why......
