Do you have Disney fanatics in your family? Of course you do! This holiday season, you can find a new way to enjoy the classic board game Monopoly with a Disney twist.
We’ve recently become aware of the Monopoly Disney Classic edition, where players invest in cottages and castles! That certainly sounds more magical than houses and hotels, right?
And for those classic Monopoly gamers who are still mourning the loss of the boot token earlier this year, cheer up! The Disney Classic edition has Cinderella’s glass slipper among its Disney token collection. Players have the chance to choose a token from some of Disney’s best movies, including:
- Cinderella’s glass slipper
- Aladdin’s lamp
- Dumbo’s circus tent
- Beauty’s teacups
- Hook’s ship from “Peter Pan”
- Snow White’s poisoned apple
Gameplay for the Disney Classic version is the same as the original. Players get cash as the start of the game to purchase property, cottages (houses) and castles (hotels). Along the way, tokens stop on Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo (Chance) and Bear Necessities (Community Chest) spaces.
Immersion in the Disney universe comes to life with cards like helping Bambi learn to ice skate, meeting Lady and the Tramp and giving the Fairy Godmother a hand. Fun stuff!
It’ll be tricky to get your hands on, though: One vendor on ebay has it available for $75.
Fortunately, there are plenty of other Disney-themed Monopoly games out there to consider for your Disney-loving family or friends:
