The Best Disney Puzzles of 2021

These days Disney puzzles come in a variety of shapes, designs, and styles. You’ll run into anything from huge starter floor puzzles for toddlers to dimensional masterpieces that turn out similar to a piece of artwork.

It’s easy to say that there’s a box full of puzzle pieces for everyone just waiting to be put together. And that’s not even getting into the most popular Disney puzzles, the 1000 piece ones!

Puzzles are a great way to challenge your brain and spend time with your loved ones. A puzzle might have been something you did with your family around certain times of the year when you were growing up.

For instance, maybe you had a traditional puzzle that everyone worked on over the holidays around Christmas. We were always the type that put together puzzles on rare snow days when everyone was home. I remember a puzzle that had been put up for “just the right time” magically appearing and providing us with something new to do.

Since I spent so much time working on keeping this puzzle review updated, my family has been putting puzzles together again. This is our most challenging one to date.

Disney Puzzle

Can you believe I found this one at a thrift store? It had been opened, but all the pieces were there. It took three of us several days to knock this one out over the holidays. But the result was stunning.

And the time we spent together was priceless.

In the many years I spent working in real estate before writing about Disney. I can’t begin to tell you the astonishing puzzles I’ve encountered. Often, I helped families sell the home of a dearly departed loved one. It was always a privilege to get to see framed puzzles and have people share with me their memories of putting them together. I’m sure many can relate.

For this review, I wanted to share with you a few Disney puzzles that are perfect for us fans. Hopefully, the majority will still be available. I try to update this review quite often.

If you find a specific puzzle that you like and it shows sold out, bookmark it. I update this review fairly often and can tell you the inventory comes and goes. (Last Updated August 2021)

Several of the Disney puzzles I thought were gone forever seem to magically reappear. So what I usually do is add the newer puzzles to the top of this list as they come out.
