The Marketplace Co-op just opened on Friday in Downtown Disney in Disney World, and if you’re looking for items to add to your Disney dream kitchen, your search may be over.
When we got a glimpse of some of the merchandise earlier this year, we thought, “Okay, this could be pretty cool.”
As it turns out… it is COMPLETELY cool!
The Marketplace Co-op is six separate “boutiques” housed inside of what once was one large store (formerly Team Mickey): Beautifully Disney, D-Tech On Demand, The Trophy Room, Cherry Tree Lane, Zoey and Pickles, and Disney Centerpiece.
The space for each section is not huge… but you will not believe the amount of fun stuff they’ve got packed in there! Being the food fans we are, we’re focusing on what’s available at the Disney Centerpiece.
The good news is, some of these items are available online, in case you aren’t able to visit the Co-op anytime soon. If you see a clickable link in our description, it will take you to the place where you can buy it!
Oh, my… where to begin?! How about Adventureland section?
Ceramic Dole Whip Keepsake Box
How can we not start with Dole Whips? At first glance, this ceramic Dole Whip appears to be only that – just a ceramic figurine.
However, you can lift off the lid and store a keepsake in the Dole Whip’s bowl.
I think this would look SO AWESOME on a desk!
Aloha Isle Hurricane Glasses
If you prefer a different homage to your beloved Dole Whip, these Aloha Isle Hurricane Glasses might do the trick.
These “Aloha” plates measure in at 7 inches, for appetizers or desserts… or both 😉 .
I like how the colors inside differ from the outside, making them extra-bright.
Actually, the official color names are “Olive” and “Amber,” if you want to get all fancy 😉 .
Can’t decide which aspect of Adventureland you like the most? This Adventureland collage mug captures pretty much all of it!
Believe it or not, all this barely scratches the surface. There is more Adventureland stuff packed in this store than you can shake a stick at… but please don’t shake any sticks at it. This stuff is breakable 😉 .
Little Orange Bird
Okay, so the little Orange Bird is technically a part of Adventureland in Sunshine Tree Terrace, but he has his own little section of merchandise at the Co-op, so I decided to give him the same thing here.
Orange Bird Figure
First, you can have your very own Orange Bird, in the form of this Orange Bird figure!
At 6 inches, he’s larger than I anticipated, but just as cute as I expected ;).
Orange Bird Pitcher
But the best part is that he has his own small line of kitchen items, including this cheerful glass pitcher.
Of course, if you’ve got a pitcher full of orange juice, you’ll need something to pour it in. That’s where these come in handy…
Orange Bird Juice Glasses
Seriously, STOP. This too-cute set of four juice glasses pays tribute to the little Orange Bird’s history with the Florida Citrus Commission.
He’s reminding us to think “Orange Thoughts,” just like back in the day!
Vintage Attraction Poster Series
We aren’t entirely leaving Adventureland behind as we move into the Vintage Attraction Poster line.
Attraction Poster Pilsner Glasses
We’ll start with these HUGE Jungle Cruise Pilsner glasses.
I have to say, though, that these face some major competition from next Pilnser choice… Space Mountain!
These sizeable Pilsners stand about 9 inches high.
Attraction Poster Plates
Like the Adventureland line, the Attraction Poster line is packed with Disney fan favorites. These Attraction Poster plates feature artwork from the posters for Disneyland Railroad, the Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, and Jungle Cruise.
The ceramic plates are quite hefty and sturdy, and measure 7 inches around.
Attraction Poster Short Glass Tumblers
The Short Glass Tumblers have a few suprises. This picture looks like an assortment of several glasses; however, they are actually dual-sided. Choices include Mr. Toad and Alice in Wonderland, as well as Space Mountain and Haunted Mansion.
That bit of the Matterhorn Bobsleds you may have spotted features the Monorail on the other side.
Attraction Poster Glass Tankards
Check out these 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Glass Tankards! It was easy to spot the giant squid.
You can see the Haunted Mansion tankards were going fast.
These next two items veer off a bit from the Attraction Poster series, but we’re still staying within the ride realm :).
Mad Tea Party Salt and Pepper Shakers
The Mad Tea Party salt and pepper shakers come with their own shared “saucer.”
The saucer has two raised spots on which the shakers can sit, so they won’t be quite as topsy-turvy on your table as they appear.
Mr. Toad Figure
And what can I say about this Mr. Toad figure?
An awesome homage to a favorite ride in both Disneyland and Disney World (RIP).
Magic Kingdom Maps
There are oodles of pieces featuring symbols from vintage Magic Kingdom Park Maps.
Magic Kingdom Map Stemmed Glass
One of my favorites is this Magic Kingdom stemmed glass.
I love how the icons and artwork are dotted all over the glass. You’ll see this trend continue on all the Magic Kingdom Map pieces.
Magic Kingdom Map Appetizer Set
The Appetizer set has three bowls decorated with the same icons, and they sit on a tray showcasing a collage of park map images.
While it appears in this picture that 3 lands each have their own bowl, in actuality each bowl is decorated with one land on each side: Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Frontierland, and Adventureland.
Magic Kingdom Land Plates
It’s good to know that these plate designs come in either 7 OR 8 inch measurements, so be sure to choose your preference!
Magic Kingdom Trash Can Salt and Pepper Shakers
My absolute favorite nod to life in the Parks, though, are the mix-and-match Trash Can Salt and Pepper Shakers!
I wanted to grab all four… and I don’t even sprinkle salt on my food!
Be Our Guest
The Be Our Guest line transitions us from vintage Disney, and brings a completely different look along with it.
Be Our Guest Dinner Plate
The Be Our Guest line primarily includes plates and bowls, my favorite of which is the full-sized dinner plate.
I love how Lumiere’s introduction for “Be Our Guest” wraps around the plate: “It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you tonight. And now we invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair, as the dining room proudly presents — your dinner!”
Be Our Guest Dessert Plate
Be Our Guest and Alice in Wonderland Stemless Wine Glasses
Several products etched with sayings from Alice in Wonderland are similar in design to those in the Be Our Guest line. Take a look at these stemless wine glasses…
Alice in Wonderland Cordial Set
I thought this Alice in Wonderland cordial glass set was unique and pretty as well.
I’m rather surprised one doesn’t say “Drink Me,” but love the swirling, whimsical font.
Mickey, Minnie, and… the Evil Witch?!
Well, I wouldn’t have put these together in my head, but it makes more sense when you see the items in this last line, showcasing some of our favorite treats and a few spots where you can get them.
Mickey Ice Cream Bar Mug
Is it weird, though, that Mickey himself is eating a Mickey-shaped bar? I guess not, since he says “It’s Swell!”
Still, I wonder how he feels about biting off the ears…
Disney Treat Dessert Plates
You can also spot Mickey on the Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Bar Dessert Plate. These plastic dessert plates come in an assortment reflecting a few other Disney treats and homes to Disney snacks, too: Minnie’s Bake Shop, the Candy Cauldron, and Goofy’s Candy Company.
Candy Cauldron Mug
And the Evil Queen-turned-Witch gets her moment in the spotlight with her very own Candy Cauldron mug.
Disney Restaurant Signs and Artwork
The fun still doesn’t stop once you reach the register with your purchases. I loved this display of signs available to take home.
Aloha Isle Sign
You could have your own little Aloha Isle at home with the Aloha Isle sign.
You may have seen a few of these in Art of Disney stores previously, but a couple of them were new to me, including the Mama Melrose’s Mona Lisa and the Tony’s Town Square signs. You can also find the Gaston’s Tavern sign in other spots around Disney World, including Bonjour Village Gifts in New Fantasyland.
If you make a trip to the Marketplace Co-op on your next trip to Downtown Disney, I’d recommend planning at least an hour to see everything. Hopefully this post has given you some idea so you won’t feel quite as overwhelmed with the options as I did!
But remember, there is a lot more to see – this is just a glimpse! From colorful retro-stylings, to black and white elegance, there is something at Disney Centerpiece for just about every Disney fan, and we’ll be sure to stop back in to keep you posted on any future items. Plus, I still have a couple of Trash Can Salt and Pepper Shakers I need to pick up 😉 .
Does anything at Disney Centerpiece strike your fancy? Please let us know with a comment!
