A plastic cup with a single rose has become a must-have item for Beauty and The Beast fans—which there are a lot of. To promote the live-action film, Disneyland stocked its Village Haus Restaurant with “Beast-inspired fare” and products, including a tumbler with a light-up lid and a plastic rose inside. Instagram user ktthedisneybear started a “frenzy” after her picture of the “Enchanted Rose Souvenir cup” was reposted to a Disney fan account, generating over 12,000 likes. The viral item can now be found on eBay for prices of upwards $100. Beauty and The Beast was in part created for nostalgia-seeking Millennials, who we discussed this week are keeping fantasy alive.
