I think that Disney is coming out with some great merchandise these days.

I’m personally thankful that, as best I can tell, they are moving away from the “One Disney” philosophy that, at least for merchandise, called for cost cutting and putting the same stuff everywhere. That wasn’t any fun at all! Now there is variety in not only merchandise but also in stores, and the merchandise matches the theme of the location. That’s awesome!

The trend toward a better assortment of souvenirs started a while ago with more resort specific merchandise. The trends now seems to continue with merchandise that fits in with the themes of stores and locations.

I recently visited the Villains in Vogue store on Sunset Blvd. in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I was pleasantly surprised by how many different types of villain merchandise the store offered. If you are a fan of the Evil Queen from Snow White, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, or Jafar from Aladdin, then this is the place for you.

While this store is all about villains, the store itself is not dark or scary. There is plenty of natural light, and there aren’t any moving elements, like things that pop out to scare you, in the store. Unless you have very little children who are afraid of the images of Disney villains, you will enjoy browsing the merchandise in this location.
