Inspired by a side comment in the thread on ride restraints and larger guests, I decided to start a separate thread on merchandise.
As one person pointed out, Disney merchandise sizing stops at a size 2x. As anyone who's been to the park recently can say, the average guest doesn't. Now, don't come down on me, I'm not making a judgement call here - heck, I'm in the 1-2 range myself. It's amazing to me that Disney, unlike other retailers, hasn't caught on to this trend and found a way to profit from it. Retailers like Hot Topic (with their Torrid chain) are making a killing on cool, hip, plus size clothes.
If they set up one merchandise location in the park as a plus-size shop, imagine the response! One place where people could go and know that it'll be in their size... I know *I'd* be checking it frequently. For example, if they would sell those adorable "baby-doll" t-shirts, but not cut to be skin tight, I know us large girls are always looking at the shape and dimensions of those shirts, loving them, only to discover that a so-called XL is cut to a normal medium. Also, of course, some of the basics, but to be honest "basics" is all plus-sizes EVER get to choose from, so how about plus size specialty items!
