Yesterday, I visited the Disney store near us. Honestly, this was the first time in a while since I order online a lot. Turns out they are offering 50% off the sale price of items left over from the semi-annual sale!!!

I bought & paid the following for special surprises for my nephews & family for our Sept. cruise:
1) Disney "Studio Collection" adult T's: reg. Price ($16.50), marked down to $5.00 w/50% off = $2.50
2) Pirates (at worlds end) wrist walkie-talkies reg. price ($29.50) marked down to $2.99 w/50% off = $1.49!!!!
3) Disney "Studio Collection" Tickerbell/ Capt. Hook Tea Towels: Reg. price ($12.50) marked down to $10.00 w/50% off = $5.00
4) Disney Design Art Set: Reg. ($40.00) marked down to $26.00 w/50% off = $12.00
5) Large Pinocchio Canvas Wall Hang: reg. price ($30) marked down to $20 w/50% off =$10!

I knew I bought more then that but can't remember... saved $100's!

Best of Luck!

I was there today (in NJ) and got GREAT bargains. The deluxe Jack Skellington halloween costume for $4.99! And POTC tshirts that were $2.49! Not to mention that it is a new store - both Disney stores near us have recently moved their locations in their respective malls - this new store was terrific - maybe tomorrow I'll visit the other one!

Since this is not cruise specific, I will move it over to the budget board.

Word of warning on the walkie talkies... my wife picked them up for our son. Besides the fact that they barely worked.... the batteries cost her $20 :eek:

I would skip that bargain if I were you. The rest of your deals look great! :thumbsup2

Wow...add my 15% OFF coupon they gave me last time I shopped there and I could do some real damage tomorrow! I should probably stay away though as it is not in my budget this month!

I got some fabulous buys on Sunday at my Manchester Disney Store. A few of the items include a pair of "Ugg" style suede boots for DD ($15), denim tinkerbell purse (one each for DD and myself, $7.49 each), denim tinkerbell wallet to match purse (just for DD, $5). I got lots more great stuff also. Sadly,my 15% off coupon was left home (I didn't plan on going to the mall... it just sort of ended up that way!)

They had lots of men's small shirts and shorts, if you have a teen/tween boy. I bought DS (almost 10) a men's small shirt, but it will take him a year or so to grow into.... but for about $3 (for a collared polo style), I couldn't resist.

LOTS of POTC stuff, especially for women/girls. Shirts, tanks, pocketbooks, wallets.

Now go shop!...............................P

I was there on Monday and picked up a few things. I don't have kids, though, and they really didn't have much left that was adult-friendly.

I got some adult Mickey Mouse slippers for $5 each (got several-- one for myself and some for gifts). I also bought a nice travel coffee mug with Mickey on it for $4 (I don't know why-- I already have a ton of resort refillable mugs :laughing: ), and some satin ribbon with Mickey sillhouettes on it for $1.

They did have a ton of kids stuff on clearance, though. Too bad I don't have anyone to buy it for!

I went last night and ours really had nothing good and the sale prices weren't that good even with the extra 50% off.

I had the same problem. I don't have a local Disney store anymore, so when I heard about the sale, I hopped in my car and drove 2 hours to Atlanta, and I didn't buy anything!

Oh well, I can call it an adventure. :rotfl2:

Oh my gosh!!!!!!! I was there yesterday (snuck in on my lunch break!!) and got tons of good steals. I got a POTC Halloween costume for my son for next Halloween for like $12!! Got some other great steals as well. I could have spent a lot more money, but I'm trying to be good!!

I was at the mall on Sunday for dd's libby lu birthday party and ran into disney store. It was mobbed, and I had to get over to Libby Lu, so I didn't have time to go through the clothing racks, but I did pick up backpacks for my ds2 (for when we go to universal, so he can pack his toys and books for the car ride in this Feb break) and one for my dd for when she starts pre-k in the fall. They were.........$2.99 each!!! DS is mickey mouse and dd is sleeping beauty, but they did have pirates and cars and tinkerbell patterns. I am heading back there on Friday to do a little more shopping. I was thinking of buying a bunch of boys backpacks to use for favors for ds's 3rd birthday in August. At $3 a pop, that is the cheapest favor I have ever done!

For those who didn't find too many great deals at the Disney Store:

There's a good chance at the merchandise was sold out before the current promotion went into effect. It happens very often at the store where I work. Even if we are out of a piece of merchandise, the price will continue to drop if other stores still have it in stock.

I work tonight so I'll see what's left at my store.

I got everything my store had that I really wanted from the Disney Shopping clearance online for WAY cheaper than the store had (at least another 50% off). So this sale probably brings the peices in line with that. I'm sure everything in my size is gone by now.

Now if only I could find one of the red Minnie ones as well!!

I just left our store very frustrated. I found beanie babies some marked $1.79, some marked $2.99 for the identical item. They were ringing up $1.49. The manager told me they had marked them down and were told to mark them back up for the 50% off sale!!!!

I picked up a few things but the selection was not great and things were all marked wrong. I bought dish clothes that were marked down to $10 and rang up at $2.50! So, I might have bought other things if they were marked right


Thanks for the vent

Last weekend, our store had a bunch of Halloween costumes on sale for $4.99!!! There were power rangers, Buzz, Jack Sparrow, Captain Hook and Tinkerbell. I had a 15% off coupon and they applied for the costumes as well. Some woman brought at least 12 power rangers costumes, maybe for ebay???? I also got their food containers (pack of 3) and coffee mugs, they were all $2.49 or something close to that.

I was told today that the sale would be ending on Tuesday Jan. 29th!

I have found that some stores have more then they are putting out. I went to a store and bought a Tinkerbell Costume the other day. My mother happen to be in the same area and she stopped by the store the following day. They had a Cinderella Costume & Ariel that was not there the day before. She also found a canvas wall hang of Mickey while she was there, but it was damaged. :sad2: She really wanted it so she asked if they had any in the back. The woman told her no, everything is out! When she was checking out, she mentioned to the woman at the counter that she was disappointed because she really wanted it and the woman said "Oh, don't be upset, I'll just get you one from the back!":cutie:

So, just because I couldn't help myself, I called the very same store TODAY and asked what costumes they have and wouldn't you know it....they suddenly have a bunch of Jasmine Costumes that they didn't have the day before!!!:headache:

I also had the woman on the phone tell me that it is common for some of the stores with less traffic to transfer sale stuff to the more popular stores. Go figure!:confused3

Just remember stores get shipments in every week day. What they didn't have one day they may very well have the next. It all depends what they get shipped and when they have someone to process that shipment. Some stores never get some specific products at all.

I've noticed at mine that stuff seems to go away and then come back out again a few months later. I was hoping for some nightmare before xmas stuff to be on clearence but when I went in yesterday, it was gone altogether. and it does not seem to be something they usually sell out off. it was not on clearence earlier in the month during the xtra 40% and there was a bunch there so i'm wondering if it just go put in the back

I am so disappointed. We don't have a Disney store where I live. The closest one is 2 1/2 hrs away. Time to move I guess!! :rotfl2: Luckily we will be moving by the end of the year. Hopefully to a more civilized place that has a Disney store!!!!

I know what you mean. We used to have a Disney store but it closed when the mall it was in started going down. The closest one to us now is in Birmingham. I wish another one could open here.

We4Mickey is right some stores get shipments daily. Also keep in mind that some employees may not know what is in the stockroom in the back...maybe the managers do, but the other employees may not. The outlet store that I work at gets shipments in Monday-Friday...we never know what will be in those shipments until the stock room mgr goes through them. As for when the dale ends...who knows...we don't...they seem to change daily...I suspect the 29th may be a good guess, but the employees do not know (again managers may or may not know) until they get there that day.

We went to the one in Branson,MO at the landing about 2 weeks ago. When we walked in the guy told us about the sale and then gave us a coupon for an additional 15%off! We didnt get a lot though. BUT we did get my dd,16,a tinkerbell throw,big and fleece, and my son a grumpy t-shirt. We have put those up for our trip in march. Altogether we spent under 11.00!!

abirdd -

The closest store to Andover, MA is in Salem, NH at Rockingham Park. It isn't very far. It is Exit 1 off Route 93. The other stores in the area are Nashua and Manchester, NH and Burlington and Marlboro, MA.
