Trick or Treats and candy corn are long gone, with spooky parties in Disney Parks over and Halloween decor removed.
Holiday merchandise has started to make its way into stores across Walt Disney World Resort, with Christmas trees and twinkling lights making magic across the Resort.
It’s now the middle of November, but it seems Disney is still selling Halloween merchandise across Walt Disney Resort.
Inside the Magic was at Disney World this weekend, and noticed multiple stores still selling Halloween merchandise, some specifically saying “Halloween 2021”.
This is unusual for Disney. Normally, once a holiday is over, Disney Parks remove the large merchandise displays selling items from a previous holiday. Usually, this leftover merchandise gets sent to Disney’s outlet stores or Cast Member discount shops.
In Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Disney Springs, Halloween merchandise from apparel to pumpkins were being sold. And none of this out-of-date merchandise was discounted.
The Christmas store in Disney Springs was full of Halloween merchandise as Guests walked in. Normally this is located in the rear area of the store, but this week, was still up in the front. It was a huge juxtaposition to the holiday decor around the Parks right now, especially in this special Christmas shop.
Over in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, the Discovery Trading Company also had Halloween merchandise filling the shelves as you walked in.
Again, lots of merchandise leftover from Halloween, with no discounts.
Emporium on Main Street U.S.A. and Creations at EPCOT also contained Halloween merchandise that felt out of place more than two weeks after October 31.
Whatever the reason for still selling these spooky items, it seems Disney Guests are noticing the lack of Holiday merchandise.
Baby Thor Poppins noted that Disney was still selling Halloween merchandise, particularly at EPCOT:
Hardly any Christmas merch at Epcot. A couple of t-shirts, the Christmas Dooney, and that was it. They were still selling Halloween merchandise. And no 50th merch. I guess Magic Kingdom and World of Disney are the places to shop. and H

Guests also noticed this year that there was no merchandise available specific to Disney’s Boo Bash event. In the past, Guests had the opportunity to purchase exclusive merchandise from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.
