I might, but I won't know until Wednesday. I was too deep in the line today, but one of our local stores was closed today (and will be tomorrow) for refurbishment, so their Mulan dolls will go on sale Wednesday morning. If I can get one there, I'd like to keep our extra Ariel, but if it means having an empty spot in our Disney Princess line, I would rather trade than go to my backup plan of selling it on eBay to pay for an eBay purchase of Mulan.

If you end up finding someone in the meantime, no worries from me, but if you're still looking on Wednesday and I bust, I'll let you know.

Either way, I'll keep you updated, actually.

Good luck!

Ryan

I was telling DH last night, that I wish I would have bought a 2nd Ariel that day at the store, just to be able to help one of you out. Seems like so many missed out on getting her.

My sentiments exactly! My DH generally frowns upon my collecting habit, so I pretty much promised to only buy one of each doll (assuming all goes well in the future for the remaining releases), but now, I realize if I had bought a second Ariel, I would be able to brighten up someone's day by allowing them to get her without paying the inflated price tag. Unfortunately, at the time, there was no way of telling that things would get so out of hand...

I guess fortunately I only collect 2 things. Disney pins and Ariel stuff. Our bedroom is all Ariel (it doesn't look childish though ) So when these dolls came out he knew it was a given that I would get her. Glad her supports my addictions LOL

Cool Ddd

Yesterday, I sent an e-mail to the the DisneyStore voicing my concern about the ebayers buying up a bulk of the Designer Dolls and the impact that it is having on the true Disney fans and collectors who want one for themselves, not to sell at jacked up prices on e-bay. I stated I hope that they can look at things for the next 6.

I did get the generic "we appreciate your feedback and it will be forwarded" response, but at least I voiced my opinion on the matter. Looks like I'll be having some early Monday mornings the next 6 weeks. Who know if they would be able to change anything anyway. I feel bad for those that missed out.

I have done the same emailed them with the complaints that their own staff are taking them and preselling them on eBay. I found Rapunzel on eBay and questioned the person regarding availability and shipping. The person stated to me that they could guarantee they would have it as they are a Disney worker!! This is unreal and unfair. I have only bought one of each for me and my four year old to share and unfortunately I learned this morning Disneystore online screwed us. Yes, I got up early and ordered one Mulan an d have the thank you confirmation as well as money taken off my card. This morning I wake to my dear John email that says unfortunately they can't fill my order and hey would I like something else? WTH? I want my doll I ordered in stock and paid for. I am so angry with them right now.

Until reading this thread I didn't know how crazy things were! I have two stores in my area selling the dolls.

Cinderella I bought in the store, I happened to be in there the day they went on sale and no one knew about them. I didn't know about them until stumbling upon them really.

After that I decided I didn't want to drive back to the store (it's not close) and I would get them online. Especially since they told me they were only getting 8 dolls and they would not be restocked.

Belle I woke up Monday and casually bought at Disneystore.com around 11:30am.

The nest week for Ariel I woke up and bought casually Monday at 10:30am.

Mulan I got afraid and kept waking up all night Sunday night. At 3am ET she was not available. At 3:30am ET she was not available. By 3:45am ET she was available to purchase.

I checked Monday and she was still available at 11:00am ET. She's not available anymore right now. They took the link off the first page to easily get to the dolls. Online you are only allowed to buy 2 dolls a person.

I collect Barbies but I don't go crazy. After seeing the 10 dolls in the store I knew I would like to have this collection - and it is fairly affordable especially broken up over 10 weeks. I wasn't sure if people would go crazy or not. This is nuts - who can afford to pay $400 for a doll??? I can't believe the ebay prices! I am very lucky to have the first 4 but now I am absolutely paranoid I won't be able to get the rest. It's going to be a long 6 weeks.

Hello, I have a question for you kind Disney experts: Is this extreme popularity with limited edition Disney products commonplace?

I have loved Disney all my life, but never collected. Never really saw anything I wanted until the release of these new dolls. I was just wondering if things are always this way with collecting Disney products. It's so stressful.

Pretty much. The 17" collector dolls that come in the boxes are the same way (they have released 9 of those so far). Same goes for very LE pins and vinylmations.
