How to Buy Kevin Kidney & Jody Daily’s Walt Disney World 40th Anniversary Merchandise (& More!)

August 4, 2011

Patrick and I are HUGE fans of artists Kevin Kidney & Jody Daily, and we snap up as much of their Disney merchandise as we can afford. Sometimes it can be a little hard to get, though, because it’s usually only available through the Disneyland Gallery, the Art of Disney shops at Walt Disney World, and maybe the Disneyana shop in Disneyland.

If you can’t make it to the parks, you can usually order the items through Disney’s Merchandise Guest Services department (877-560-6477)—the only trouble is, the operators there don’t have photos of the items, so if you don’t have a SKU number to give them, it can be tricky to track things down.

Kevin & Jody’s latest collection celebrates Walt Disney World’s 40th anniversary and may be their best yet. Unfortunately, it is only being sold at Walt Disney World. I finally managed to get SKUs and prices for all four pieces, so I’ll list them below with pictures. Availability fluctuates but, according to Kevin, there should be plenty. You just may have to wait a few days for Disney to get more in stock.

Also, at the end of the post I’ll put in the SKUs for the last two figures in Kevin & Jody’s series of cast members celebrating Disneyland’s 55th anniversary last year. For some reason, Disney only chose to release the first three (Tomorrowland, Adventureland and Main Street, U.S.A.) in 2010, but I just discovered that the Disneyland Gallery has been getting Frontierland and Fantasyland figurines in!

OOooh, Nate’s not happy I read this today! ;) Do you think by “boxed dinnerware set” they just mean “plate set?” Are there bowls too or just the plates? I’m in love!

Hee hee! It’s just plates, but they are sooooooo cool. Tell Nate that if you have an AP, you get a 20% discount!

The SKU # is definitely needed when calling- so thanks so much for posting these!! Just called Disney’s Merchandise Guest Services department and thanks to the SKU she found the Ceramic Paper Cup- however, the SKU listed above was the same for the dinnerware set and she wasnt able to locate it :(

Thanks for making these SKUs available to us. I already purchased the two newer cast member sculptures from ebay and paid way too much. I wish I had found your site before I did that. I don’t understand why Disney makes it so hard for collectors to even find out about available merchandise let alone make it available for purchase. Thanks again. I’ll be saving disneytravelbabble to my favorites!

Oh no! You know, I almost bought those ones on eBay, but then I wondered how the seller got them and decided to call Disney’s merchandise line. I completely agree that Disney needs to make this stuff way more accessible.

I’m glad to see Kevin & Jody designing merchandise for Walt Disney World’s 40th. For a while, I thought we might only be getting hockey jerseys and obnoxious polos with large graphics on the reverse side. Perhaps the best news of all is that they’ll be in WDW on October 1st for a signing!

lurkyloo August 14, 2011 at 12:24 PM

LOL! Totally! I was soooo underwhelmed by the 40th anniversary “collage”-themed merchandise at WDW earlier this year, which is probably why I’m over the moon for Kidney & Daily’s merchandise—so well designed!

Yay! Glad I could help! All their boxes are beautiful—we’re actually thinking of displaying those too!

I was wondering if you have the sku for the Kevin Kidney & Jody Daily Adventureland Cast Member? I’ve been looking all over for it. Thanks.

lurkyloo October 26, 2011 at 9:02 AM

You know, I might—I think we may still have the box he came in, so I’ll try to dig it up tonight!

Thank you, I would really appreciate it. ^^_^^

OK, the Adventureland Cast Member SKU is 400000294339.

Are these still possibly available? Do you remember the Disneyland and Disney World Glass set they had in Art of Disney Cinema store on Main Street and would you happen to have the SKUS for those sets? Thanks for providing these though, they’re awesome and we regret not getting them with our discount when we were there UGH!

lurkyloo November 7, 2011 at 11:11 AM

They might still be available—definitely call and check! Also, I may have the SKUs for the glasses, if I have the ones you’re thinking of. For Disneyland I have the 55th anniversary glasses done by Kidney & Daily for Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, Adventureland and Frontierland, with gold foil accents. For WDW I just have the ones done for each land by Shag for the 40th anniversary. I don’t think Kidney & Daily did glasses for WDW’s 40th.

That’s right, Shag did the glass set along with coasters and a giant fluffy pillow I believe and a few mens shirts. http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/category/art-of-disney/page/2/ Will you be putting up the SKUS for the S.H.A.G. glasses here or?

lurkyloo November 7, 2011 at 11:25 AM

I wasn’t going to, but I can post the glass SKUs in the comments here for you if you need them. We also have the pillow and the postcard set, if you need those SKUs. Frankly, after getting K&J’s glasses, we were kinda underwhelmed by Shag’s…

Reply

venessa November 7, 2011 at 12:17 PM

Yes please post the SKU in the comments for both sets of glasses, the Shags and Disneylands Kevin and Jody gold trim ones. Thank you. I like them both but I’m thinking of getting the gold trim ones from Disneyland for my fiance. =) or at least I can call and try.

lurkyloo November 8, 2011 at 11:31 PM

Hi Venessa! OK, I was only able to find a receipt for ONE of the gold-trimmed Kevin & Jody glasses, Fantasyland: 400000891781 Maybe when you call Merchandise Guest Services they can use it to figure out the others?

Here are the SKUs for the Shag glasses:

Fantasyland: 400002845515

Frontierland: 400002844846

Adventureland: 400002844785

Let me know how it turns out! :)

Carrie!!

I was able to order the gifts for my fiance! They still have a good majority of all their 40th merch but since we need it by Christmas, it was a 34 dollar shipping cost. YIKES!! =) Thank you for your help once again. Feliz Navidad!

lurkyloo December 6, 2011 at 11:24 AM

Hooray!!! I’m so happy that it worked out for you (despite the crummy shipping charges). Sounds like you’ll be having a very feliz Navidad indeed!
