As Seen on Barely Necessities
Since the beginning of Disney Cruise Line, bringing home souvenirs has been an important part of the guest experience and now with 25 years of magic at sea, Alex takes a look at all the special souvenirs and keepsakes on board.
I can’t believe it but Father’s Day (June 18th) is on the horizon and if you’re looking for something cool and Disney themed to get for Dad, shopDisney is the place to go. Celebrate Dad and his fandom with a wide selection of clothing, collectibles, toys (he’s a kid at heart) and accessories from shopDisney. Best of all they’re on sale for a limited time!
Summer is on the way and shopDisney is helping fans to fill their wardrobe with a wild assortment of seasonal apparel inspired by the one and only, Stitch! The blue troublemaker is bringing his spunk and spirit to must-have apparel, accessories, and home essentials the whole family will love.
Since you can never be too prepared for Halloween, we decided to request the Buffy the Vampire Slayer wig for adults that’s exclusive to Fun.com. Fans can bring their Buffy dreams to life (or help flesh out their group costumes) with a Buffy wig styled after her hair in seasons 3 and 4 (high school and college).
If you’ve been following Laughing Place for a while then you already know that Walt Disney Company is hosting a year long celebration commemorating their 100th anniversary.

As a leader in unique and trendy socks, they’re the perfect partners for a Disney100 series, and you’re going to love the fifth drop in the collection that's all about the Sensational Six.
Let’s face it, we could all use some Marvel fashion in our wardrobes but settling on the perfect product can be stressful. Fortunately, BoxLunch has a heroic selection of apparel, accessories and collectibles in-stock inspired by Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
