Disney+ subscribers get to celebrate Christmas a little early this year.

In a test launch, starting today (November 1st), customers in the U.S. will be getting early access to certain Walt Disney World Company merchandise. All shopping can be down on the Shop Disney site.

This was done just in time for the holiday season.

Products, apparel, toys and collectibles will be from Star Wars and “The Mandalorian”, Marvel’s “Black Panther” and “Doctor Strange”, Pixar’s “Lightyear”, and Walt Disney’s Animation Studio “Frozen 2”.

Go to shopdisney.com/DisneyPlusSpecialAccess and for a limited time, be able to do your Christmas shopping before it all becomes available to the general public.

Disney+ president Alisa Bown shared, “Special access to this curated collection of merchandise for the upcoming holiday season is the latest example of the many ways we experiment with how to improve the user experience, which includes enhancing the benefits of being a subscriber.”

She continued, “We’re excited to collaborate with shopDisney to explore how we can potentially better serve our audiences by expanding the ways they get to interact with the stories and characters they love.”

Integrating the two platforms is an initial step The Walt Disney Company is putting together to create a membership program.

The company will bring together perks and exclusive offers from Parks around the world, to the Disney Cruise Lines, to retail outlets.

CEO Bob Chapek added at an investment conference in September, “this will become a platform for consumer engagement with the Walt Disney Company, not just a movie service platform.”

Some items on sale include:

  • Scarlett Witch Ear Headband- $30
  • Doctor Strange Cloak- $100
  • Black Panther Collectible Mask- $150
  • The Mandalorian Darksaber Legacy Set- $250
