The Disney Magic began sailing in 1998 and this year marks Disney Cruise Line’s 15th Birthday! In celebration of their crystal anniversary a new line of merchandise has been created, featuring a 15 Magical Years Logo along with a collage of familiar images. This past Friday on the [Disney_Fantasy] the new merchandise was announced in the Personal Navigator, and would go on sale when the shops opened after we left Castaway Cay. In the morning, we made a detour past Sea Treasures before heading ashore to get a quick peek at the new merchandise as the cast members were unpacking and setting up the new merchandise.
The first item, which has been available since late January is an open edition spinner pin featuring Captain Mickey, Minnie Mouse, and Pluto on one side with the 15 Magical Years logo on the other. The pin retails for $11.95 (SKU: 7233584), and be be ordered via DisneyPins.com.
There are zippered hoddie jackets with the 15 Magical Years logo embroidered on the chest and the back, and anchor on the front right pocket, an DCL compass and Captain Mickey patch on the sleeve. The teal version is $59.95 while the Navy is $54.95. A children’s version was available in Navy for $34.95. I did not see a teal version available in the smaller size.
The latest trend at Disney with all over, full color printed shirts continues with this women’s collage t-shirt for $24.95. The printing process creates unprinted areas depending if the shirt was wrinkled during the printing process. I struggle with this technique as it sometimes makes the end product look like a sloppy production error, but at other times a truly unique and one of a kind custom shirt.
Regular long and short sleeve t-shirts are available in various sizes and colors. The short sleeves shirts have the logo on the chest and collage on the back. These are available in burnt orange, white, and grey for $24.95. The long sleeve shirt has the collage and logo on the front with Disney Cruise Line screen printed on the left sleeve for $27.95.
Finally, in the shirt department a shirt for the little ones feature a modified collage and logo with Sailor Pluto for $12.95.
Two new Christmas ornaments have been added to the already expanded holiday collection. The first is a standard glass ball with the collage and logo for $11.95.
The other ornament is line with the other Disney mouse ear ornaments. This one in particular has Captain Mickey on one side with the reverse the bow of a Disney Cruise ship flanked by the DCL and 15 Magical Years logos on the ears. This ornament sells for $19.95.

A new scrapbook and scrapbook set has been created for the 15th anniversary. The scrapbook includes 15 page protectors, 15 assorted color sheets, and 1 paper folder for $29.95. The Scrapbook kit which sells for $14.95 includes sticker and boarder sheets to enhance the scrapbook.

Protect your Android Samsung Galaxy S III with this new hard shell case feature the collage and 15 Magical Years logo. The case is $32.95.
Sorry Apple users, there were no versions available for any of the iOS devices. The previous batch of DCL iPhone cases are still available for the iPhone 4/4S, but iPhone 5 users are currently left without any DCL options.
Last but certainly not least is this neoprene iPad/Tablet case for $24.95. This was my one any only purchase and fits the iPad much better than my previous slip case.
At this time this merchandise is only available on the ships and is limited to two per guest per style.
