Too early? Here in Florida, Halloween is in full swing! Magic Kingdom is decked out in its Halloween best, and the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Parties have already begun! I'm a former Pennsylvania girl, so I am definitely needing more apple cider, hay rides, and red orange leaves before i'll believe it's Fall.
Anywho - I'm here to give you the quick and dirty on something Aya has been working hard on - our FIRST "build your own" Halloween Basket! You get to pick the base, the goodies that come inside, and the wrapping extras (like buttons and balloons!). Here's the scoop:
First, pick your favorite base. Choose from a Princess or Avengers theme, or get wild and go with the Disney Villains option! They're all the same size and shape, and we will use them as the actual "basket base" to hold all of the goodies you choose next!
Next up - make your basket stand out with a larger than life Disney Halloween Fabric Gravestone! These add height and visual interest to the basket, and they're easy to fold up and take home!
Who better to kick off the plush parade than Halloween Goofy? Dressed in his spooky best (but seriously... what is he dressed AS?), he is a Disney Parks plush and makes a great companion on the ride home. If Halloween Goofy isn't your style, you also have the option to add any other plush to this basket!
We also have an adorable Witch Minnie Mini Plush! (Say THAT three times fast!) She makes for the perfect subtle touch of Disney in your Halloween decor. Her hat has a ribbon attached as well, so you can choose to hang her on your tree as a reminder of one magical vacation.
Now, we're at Aya's favorite item - the LOOT SCOOP! These little beauties are MADE for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! Your little looter can hold out the oversized Mickey hand to capture a (whole lot more than a) handful of candy!
WOW! That's a LOT of options! How are you hanging in there? Good? Good! We have even MORE options to cover!
Is your basket recipient a Haunted Mansion aficionado? Look no further - MADAME LEOTA EARS! Aside from Madame Leota's beautiful face, we have these amazing lenticular ears showcasing all the instruments from Madame Leota's incantation scene. I just love that they're so unique!
More of a water drinker than a candy hunter? (Me too!) Our Boo to You water bottles are the perfect way to keep hydrated. Each bottle has a printed design (not vinyl) ensuring durability - use it for PSL seasons to come! Psst: This will be the last year we offer this design. (If you want it, grab it!)
Last but not least - add some CANDY! Maybe your recipient isn't attending the party, but they're still enjoying the sights and sounds of Halloween around the parks. Send them some candy and immerse them in the Halloween experience!
Of course you can still add all of our regular button and balloon options, too! If you're a button person, check out the button drop down menu - we have some AWESOME Halloween inspired creations from Parkbound Buttons (pictured above)!
So... what do you think? Will you be building a basket for your Halloween trip? Did we forget to include any must haves? Let us know!
