In this section, I’ll highlight a few of my favorite Disney books that I believe every Disney fan needs to own. If you’re interested in a more detailed list of Disney books, click here.
The Disney Book. This is one of my favorite books. It is filled with Disney history, knowledge, illustrations, and behind-the-scenes insights of your favorite beloved animations.

The Disneyland Encyclopedia. I bought this book back in 2018 and couldn’t put it down! This fascinating book features detailed explorations of 600 Disneyland topics, including lands, attractions, restaurants, stores, events, and significant people.
It completely illuminates the history of Disneyland as a landmark, revealing the initial planning strategies for the park’s iconic attractions and detailing how they evolved over the decades. Grab a copy on Amazon for around $16.
Going to Disneyland. My fellow Disney friend and social media Influencer, Shannon, has written 2 incredible books that are fun for the whole family. Completely updated for 2020, these interactive guide books are filled with eye-catching activities, games, coloring, artwork, journal space, and tons of Disney history/trivia.

This book helps me and my travels tremendously and I recommend it to everyone who has health challenges and is planning a trip to the happiest place on earth. It’s a little outdated now, but still applicable for much of the park. It’s available on Amazon for about $14.
Clothing and Accessories
Mouse Ears. Every Disney fan needs their own mouse ears! There are so many different varieties of ears, it can be hard to choose. If you are just looking for some simple ears, Amazon has some great affordable options.
But, if you want something more elegant and detailed, or perhaps glow-in-the-dark, I recommend browsing Etsy where you’ll find custom ears handmade to your liking! One of my favorite’s is MagicMountainEars.
Shirts, Sweaters, and Jackets. You aren’t a true Disney fan until you own at least 1-2 Disney shirts. Or if you’re like me, perhaps 90% of your closet is Disney related.
There are hundreds of places to find cute, fashionable Disney clothing items. Some of my personal favorites are found on Etsy, ShopDisney, and Amazon. Many shops, particularly on Etsy, even offer customizable clothing options so if you don’t see something you like, create your own design!
Hats and Beanies. Not all Disney fans enjoy wearing headbands (mouse ears) and would rather provide more sun protection for their head. This is where hats are the perfect alternative.
Whether you’re looking for a summer hat or a winter beanie, there are a variety of excellent choices on Amazon that would make the perfect gift. BoxLunch also has an eclectic myriad of hats at reasonable prices.
Here you’ll find items that are perfect for Disney fans that live an on-the-go lifestyle.
