Hello all, something I've been wondering for a little while is why are there basically no Hallmark Keepsake ornaments based on Disneyland or Disney World attractions? Is there some specific license deal that prevents it?

I know of at least two that are technically what I'm asking, 2001's Small World, and the 2016 Teacup for Two with M&M. The weird thing about these two is there is absolutely no mention of the parks whatsoever on the package. I didn't even know about the Small World one until I found it at a yard sale this weekend for $2! It's really well done.

I know there are lots of other Disney ornaments, many available for sale at the parks, but for the most part, none of them appealed to us. The Hallmark ones are just really well done where most of the gift shops ones seem cheap and overpriced.

True and not sure why they haven't made more. Many here have "wished" for a Parks Ride/Vehicle series for years & years here.

I have a few Jim Shore pieces based on Disney Parks rides. And have a desk set based on mostly Fantasyland Rides from the Parks that I bought about 15 years ago that is really well done.

Maybe one of these days . . . I'd love IF Ken Crow did a magic cord series based on Disney World park rides, especially rides at Magic Kingdom but other parks would also be welcome additions too~!!!!

Hallmark actually did two It's a Small World ornaments. The first was 2003 and was an exclusive to KOC members. It's a set of three of the ride characters (France, America, and UK). The other ornament is from 2004 and has more characters and plays music. Another company did porcelain ornaments for different countries many years ago. I have the one that represents Japan that I bought at a TJ Maxx many years ago. I should have bought the other characters they had since these are a bit expensive.

I would count 2006 Pirates of the Caribbean. I know it's based on the movie, but it is an iconic scene from the ride and plays the ride music. Besides, they have added Jack Sparrow to the ride anyway.

Besides those and the teacup, while not a ride, I would also add 2018 Partners. Comes out in October and is of the iconic Walt Disney & Mickey Mouse statue that's in the Parks.

And you can sometimes find other brands. In the Disney Artist series, they did an ornament of Donald and Daisy riding the Dumbo Ride, Jiminy Cricket riding the train from Thunder Mountain, Alice, Mad Hatter, March Hare, and the Cheshire Cat riding the teacups, Pinocchio with Small World, Minnie Mouse riding Grand Prix Raceway, Mickey riding a rocket ship (not sure what the ride is), and Mr. Toad and Cyril riding Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. These are from the Disney Artist series ornaments. I really want Pablo from "The Three Caballeros." Almost got him a couple of years ago, but I was outbid. Point is, they did ride ornaments and some not ride ornaments. The ride ornaments tend to have a Christmas decorated look though, so if you want pure ride, they're not always the best choice. Still, search Disney artist ornament on ebay to check them out.

They're from the 1990s. Were probably sold in the Parks or Disney Store.

There's a rocket ride in Tomorrowland (I'm blanking on the name at the moment). It's basically the Dumbo ride with rockets instead. That's got to be what Mickey is on in the ornament you talked about.

And how I must look up these ornaments. Why did you have to mention them?

I was thinking that it was in Tomorrowland too, but the name was escaping me, and I was too lazy to look it up. It's the Astro Orbiter.

Trust me, once you see the prices, it shuts down the desire for them pretty quick. The prices on these deter me (maybe not you, I'm just a darn cheapskate on the secondary market). Some aren't too bad in price. One day, I may go after the Lady and the Tramp one (they are just next to each other with a present, so they don't have a ride theme). It's a relatively common, cheap one. The Dumbo ride one usually isn't too expensive either. I discovered these back when I had started searching for my Disney Parks ornaments that feature the characters holding Mickey ball shaped ornaments.

And there could be more of the Disney Artist ride ornaments. I only listed what's currently on ebay. I don't keep up with these very well.

Edit: Oh! I'm about 95% sure there is one for Peter Pan's Flight. I just can't remember which character is featured... Listing them yesterday, made me think of how fun and creative these are. I wish Disney would stop with the abstract stuff like the shoes and make more things like these ride ornaments. What a fun type of ornament to help capture a moment in time like your child's favorite ride. But no, let's do a high heel shoe where Jasmine's ponytail is the heel. No offense to people who love those shoes, hats, purses, cars, etc. I'm glad they're there for people who want them, but Walt Disney World has at least two shops that are all Christmas (I'm assuming that Disneyland probably has at least one). Or at least they did the last time I was there in 2006. They've got the space to add in new lines.

I liked the Mouse Ear hat ornaments the first year when they only offered like 8 and supposedly back then they were limited, I forget the edition size . . . didn't buy any . . . but they've made way too many now . . . same for the shoes and now the little cars . . . glad I don't collect ANY of those. Too many.

I love the Mouse Ear ornaments. They are so fun and creative. They are way to expensive for me to buy, but I love looking at them.

I think the 2 dwarfs in the mine car is an excellent representation of the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride. I wasn't interested in the ornament until I rode the ride this week. It has moved to a high spot on my shopping list.
