IMHO all inaugural or specialty cruise items should be limited to no more than 2 per person and some like the dunney and burkes should be limited to one per person. Cabins usually hold more than one passenger so the people who hog merchandise could still get extras. Disney should know by now who people act when there are limitted editition items, for heavens sakes they have been issueing pins for eleven years now.

The merch was a joke. I wanted a hat and could not find and since it was "Maiden Voyage" they were not taking orders. BUT.. My wife wanted an Inaugural D&B hand bag, and they were totally sold out in minutes, She simply placed an order and had it two weeks later. Since we are not selling on EBAY we were okay with the delay in getting the merch... So lesson learned... If there is something you want.. Ask for it!

If you are listening Disney you need to start including the special merchandise in the buying of the collectibles and LIMIT people. Give everyone a chance. For these Maiden / Inaugural voyages EVERYONE is paying a premium to be there and should be able to buy a damn hat if they want.

I will NEVER do another maiden / Inaugural voyage with Disney.
We had the same problem. My wife wanted 2 of the bags...the store opened to sell them while we were going to early the time we finished they were sold out. 4 styles, a limit of 2 of each style and you bet those folks in line, who dragged their husband with them, bought 8 each. So we politely asked what could be done and they came up with the solution you posted.

For the MV of the Fantasy people on the ship are now allowed to place orders for several shirts, hats, etc and they will be delivered to their stateroom. Will be interesting to see what other fixes they have come up with for this trip!
