I remember growing up with Disney mugs printed with wrap-around scenes from the animated movies. Those are still available, as are all types of funky shapes and bright colors.
But this subtle mug caught my eye on a recent trip and I made a special detour just to pick it up.
The mug itself is a matte color with some variation — almost like it’s been distressed. The Disneyland “D” is recessed into the mug and, honestly, what makes this awesome.
The rest of the printing seems to be screen printed and I’m a little nervous for longevity. So far I’ve handled carefully, but some of the other mugs on display seemed like the printing—particularly near the bottom of the mug—had rubbed off a bit.
Like many mugs, the main feature — the “D” is facing you if you’re right-handed. I’ll sometimes hold the mug left-handed just so I can show it off a bit.
There are Disney and Disneyland mugs that are much more fun and lively, but if you want something that can blend in on a boardroom table, this is a great idea.
Revive happy memories of your Disneyland visits in 2018 with this commemorative mug. Mickey is featured on the gothic-style design which includes Disneyland’s iconic ”D” logo debossed in the large cup’s stoneware surface.
