The infamous 3, 4 and sometimes 5-hour waits for the Disney Store at the D23 EXPO were back in full force this year offering those who patient enough to wait a whole selection of new and exclusive merchandise only available at the event.
The hottest items of the EXPO had fans going gaga for exclusive release of new dolls. The extremely popular Once Upon a Time Snow White and Evil Queen Doll Collection was exclusive to just the event and sold out rather quickly. There was also the Disney Fairytale Designer Collection dolls which paired a “2fer” of Hero/Villain dolls in the same box.
There was also STAR WARS apparel, collectibles, and toys, including the ‘Star Wars Elite Series’ action figures, Toy Story 20th Anniverary merch including EXPO-exclusive t-shirt, all-new collections of the seemingly unstoppable stackable plush the TSUM TSUMs.
Although StorePass did allow a small number of attendees to skip the big line with the FastPass style voucher, it still didn’t help the hundreds of other fans who were trying to get their hands on the new merchandise launched exclusively at the event. No guarantees were made and those who were not queued up early enough did end up waiting to enter stores with merchandise that had been sold out or that were still available only in limited sizes.
No lines here, step right up and take a look at the offerings that had fans (and EBAYers) going nuts this weekend…
