If they received permission from WB, they could sell gifts that might prepare one for travel to the various cities and Ministries of Magic throughout the Globus. Passports, wallets, backpacks etc. A kind of Fantastic Beasts tie in.I'm asking mostly rhetorically, but if anybody wants to brainstorm, have at it!
That makes a ton of sense. Universal’s Social Media team tweets out pictures of celebs getting their wands all the time.I forgot they finally decided to go ahead with this. Apparently they are also adding some kind of VIP entrance through the back of the wand shop as well, so celebs can get the wand experience without crowds.
I don’t know if they would sell luggage in a theme park. It seems weird to me buying a suitcase in a theme park with theme park markups.They actually have most of the merchandise in the other shops around Wizarding World already because it was ordered with the idea the shop would have been open before last Christmas. It's a lot of luggage tags, passport holders and other travel related stuff that actually sells well to the visitors from other countries.
I wouldn't be surprised to see luggage come too since so many tourists buy luggage while here in Orlando to send stuff home (especially Brazilians!)
Official WWoHP luggage would be seen entirely differently, I think. I could see fans buying these items. It may be an extra bag to take home with you on your current trip, but it could be seen a neat bag to replace your other on your next trip(s). I can see it doing well. Is there similar merchandise around the WW?I don’t know if they would sell luggage in a theme park. It seems weird to me buying a suitcase in a theme park with theme park markups.
I could see this, too, if they got the okay to do it. I don't see how they wouldn't get the okay, really. It's a way for them to make money off the expansion of the franchise (FB) that isn't otherwise seen or made available anywhere in the current parks. I'd think it would be a win-win for all parties involved. It would be less jarring to see some FB-location merchandise in a travel agency than it would be to see it in one of the other WWoHP shops.If they received permission from WB, they could sell gifts that might prepare one for travel to the various cities and Ministries of Magic throughout the Globus.

They actually had three piece luggage sets available in Toon Lagoon very recently. I'd say WW luggage would sell pretty well, depending on quality and design, I might be willing to purchase something along those lines. A suitcase that looks like Newt Scamanders case of magical creatures? People would be all over it.I don’t know if they would sell luggage in a theme park.

I know the person who does all the merchandising for the Potter shops and WB is very picky about what merch can go where. They have kind of a "catch all" with the park stores selling a selection of everything, but the specific shops all need to be merchandised to WB standards all the time. It used to be that the widow of Dr. Seuss was the picky one when it came to merchandising, but it seems WB is really anal about every detail (on behalf of JKR).Here’s some pics of all the Globus Mundi merch that’s currently available. Strangely enough, these items are not currently available inside the Wizarding World, only at the park’s main gift shops on the way out.
No luggage, but they do have luggage tags.
Who cares about MCO. They are buying the luggage to go home. So when they get off of their plane to New England, London, Brazil, wherever, a Disney suitcase is going to be pretty easy to spot at the baggage carousel.I would think that Disney luggage might not stand out quite as much at MCO.
