If you’ve ever been to Disney World, you know that there are certain limits, rules, and restrictions in place.
For example, adults generally aren’t allowed to wear full costumes in the Disney World theme parks except for during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and certain other specified events, and certain items like selfie sticks are banned altogether. When we were in Disney World recently, we learned that one rule that has been in place at Disney World shopping locations has been changed.
In 2021, Disney placed a 2-per-item limit on newly released Halloween merchandise. That was later extended and Disney implemented a two-item limit on essentially all merchandise items throughout the parks. This meant that guests weren’t able to buy more than two of the same item.
Cast Members told us at the time that the limit was in place due to supply issues. Supply issues are things Disney has experienced for quite some time now, and that’s something that doesn’t seem to be really going away immediately. We’ve seen supply issues impact MagicBands, snacks, and more.
But now, Disney World’s shopping rule is changing.
When we were in Magic Kingdom today, we noticed that these “two-per-item per guest” signs were missing. We then spoke with a Cast Member who confirmed for us that the two-item limit has been lifted.
A limit on shopping hasn’t gone away entirely though. For now, most purchases are limited to 10 per item. This is the limit that previously existed (before the more strict 2-per-item rule was put in place). But there are a few exceptions to this 10-per-item rule on some items like Loungefly bags.
We spoke to another Cast Member in Hollywood Studios who was not aware of the change. However, upon looking around the store we were in there, we saw that the 2-item limit signs had been removed. The Cast Member spoke to a leader who said that they had not heard of the change, but noted that the removal of the signs was, in their opinion, a clear indication of the change to a return to the 10-item limit (again, for most items).
It appears this change is still in the process of being fully rolled out, so Cast Members may have varying levels of knowledge about the situation. Be sure to keep that in mind.
Also, note that this rule is limited to purchases of 10 of the same item. You will still be able to purchase more than 10 items total at stores in Disney World, you just can’t buy more than 10 of a single item.
So, what does this change mean? It could mean that Disney’s supply chain problems are improving as the rule went into effect due to those problems initially. Disney hasn’t provided a big update on how the supply chain is affecting the parks since the quarterly earnings call in May, but we’ve seen these impacts all over with things like bubble wands, lobster, and even medals for the runDisney events.
We’ll be keeping an eye on the situation for any changes and will be sure to provide any updates. If you’re looking for more merchandise news, Disney just dropped two new pairs of Minnie ears online AND two new Starbucks cups, too.
