Fans across New Zealand are now able to shop official products from the largest media and entertainment company in the world, Disney.
With the nearest Disney Park being over 8,000 kilometres away in the outskirts of Tokyo, Japan, fans of the franchises are now able to purchase goods from shopDisney and get it direct to their door in three days via DHL.
Disney has tapped into their e-commerce platforms, expanding their channels of retail and launched their online store, shopDisney. The New Zealand edition of shopDisney comes after numerous launches in other countries across the Asia-Pacific region.
Customers will not only get Disneyland merchandise but will also have access to other products such as fashion, accessories, toys, homewares, collectibles and more.
New Zealand fans will be able to purchase from the franchises of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars essentials. For the fans who have never been to a Disney Park before, they can even purchase the iconic Mickey headbands to wear.
Previously, Kiwi fans of the franchises had to purchase goods via global partner websites.

“We have listened to our local fans and curated a range that delivers on their wish list,” says Meagan Sanders, Vice President of Consumer Products in Australia and New Zealand and Head of shopDisney.
“It was essential to us to deliver on the authentic Disney products and experiences that have not always been accessible to our audiences locally. We are deeply motivated by engaging with local fans and bringing plenty of pixie dust to shopping carts across New Zealand with some surprising touches in store,” she adds.
The official store launched to NZ customers on June 14 and offers their range including the Disney Pride Collection and the collaboration with luxury brand Coach.
Sanders says that new products will be added weekly alongside the access to international releases to highly coveted items.
With shopDisney, customers will be able to receive free shipping when they spend over $150 and track their order status.
