Magic Kingdom opens the floodgates

New fall line features gadgets galore.


As Friday's release of High School Musical 2 looms--to the dread of hapless parents already forced to endure daily doses of Radio Disney--the requisite product merchandizing has been wholly expected.

(The "Disney Flix Video Camera" pictured here goes for about $100.) Gizmodiva recommends the Hannah Montana-themed line. And we already know, of course, that colleague Caroline McCarthy will be all over the pirate gear like a cheap Mousketeer suit.
