Tomorrow morning, May 11, 2013, Disney Consumer Products will officially welcome Merida into its Disney Princess line of products with a celebration fit for — well, a princess. The event will take place at 9:30 am ET at Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida as part of the Limited Time Magic campaign. Merida will become the 11th princess in the royal family and is expected to be joined on stage by the existing set of ten in a rare opportunity. Rumors indicate a possible even rarer appearance by Merida’s mum herself, Queen Elinor, just in time for Mother’s Day.
In commemoration of the event, a special limited release tee shirt has been created for children (sizes 4T – XL) as seen here. At the Magic Kingdom, the tee shirt will be available only tomorrow at the Main Street Emporium and only while supplies last. However, for those unable to attend or purchase the tee shirt, Disney Store is now selling the tee shirt online for just a limited time (now through May 14) with the only downside being that you’ll have to wait 6 – 8 weeks delivery.
