In January 2017, the merchandise team at Disney’s Hollywood Studios put together a program that is still amazing guests (and cast members) in addition to showcasing the power of social media.
I am constantly amazed with the creativity shown within the Disney Parks, and this is no different.
It’s my pleasure to introduce to you the Stitch’s of Hollywood!
Stitch was introduced to the shops of some of the most popular attractions in the Studios, with a fun twist. He had an official Walt Disney World nametag with a name that included a hashtag, which allowed guests to share on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
This was a fun addition to a park that’s going through a heavy overhaul, with the addition of Toy Story Land, Star Wars Galaxy Outpost and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
Stitch can be found in the following gift shops:
#ROCKERSTITCH is at Rock Around the Shop
#BELLHOPSTITCH is in Tower Hotel Gifts
#JEDISTITCH is at Tatooine Traders
#INDYSTITCH is at the Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost
#SORCERERSTITCH wanders throughout the line for Fantasmic (debuted in March 2017)
#PHOTOPASSSTITCH seems to hang out in the Darkroom, but he’s more of a hidden gem!
In the 2017 Holiday season, #SantaStitch was found at the Santa meet and greet outside of Once Upon a Time
Here’s the fun part about the Stitch’s of Hollywood…
It’s an inside joke! It’s 100% designed for people to discover the fun within the stores and to share their memories with friends and followers. Most of the cast members at Walt Disney World don’t know about this…so let’s just keep this between us ok?
If you found any of the plush characters in the stores, share it with us with the hashtag #StitchOfHollywood
