I do like the fact that they are obviously realizing that there are a bunch of people out there (other than themselves!!) trying to make a profit of the dolls.
As I said in a previous post, this is sadly not just isolated to the designer doll series. They routinely oversell limited edition vinylmations and send out the same cancellation emails. Their entire system needs an overhaul to prevent it from happening on such a large scale.

I think the best "fix" they can give people who got a canceled Snow White is to give them the customary $10 store coupon, or perhaps a bit more since the problem was so widespread this morning. I think anything above that, including the thought of being allowed to purchase another doll before the public, is unfair and won't happen.

Slightly off topic: Was anyone able to find out which princess is next after Tiana?

not yet - on another site they figured out the URL's for snow white and tiana but nothing beyond that

same thing happens with pins they have limited supply and a few people buy them all up when they are released

I'll take what I can get. At least they recognize there's an issue and are trying to resolve it going forward. with the dolls being LE and how fast they are going, should be changed to 1 per order IMO. Disney will still make their $$$ and sell out.

This morning while waiting outside the store i saw the cast member carry out the dolls. She brought out 13 then she brought 1 back to the back. When she came out and said they have 12 dolls I asked her where the 13th one went and she said oh its my birthday I put her aside. Are they really allowed to do that?

Wow I'm so sorry to everyone that didn't get the doll!
I know this is kinda off topic, but I just find it ridiculous that here in Canada the dolls are $75, making it $85 with tax. Thing is currently our dollar is worth more than the US dollar. I'm not driving all the way to the USA to get these dolls, I would never even have a chance to make it in time. I'm buying 3 of the dolls, meaning I have to spend a full $45 more. I could almost buy a whole other doll for USD price! Just makes me upset :\

Yuck! Some people will just try to make money off of anything realted to this line. I saw an auction on eBay for the brochure with a BIN price of $10. $10 for a FREE brochure?!? Come on, now! There are also auctions for 2 note cards (2 of the same princess) with a starting bid price of $2.50 and a BIN price of $9.99... The note cards have not even sold out yet, and they retail for $14.50 for the set of 20... All I can say is: Find Your Humanity!
