The manager answered the phone and told me that they just got a shipment in and were unpacking them at that moment. She was kind enough to reserve some mugs for me, so after work I was able to buy a Rapunzel, Aurora, Ariel, Cinderella, and Jasmine mug, as well as a second back-up Snow White mug (in case I accidentally break my original one!). So I'm pretty much set, except for the remaining yet-to-be-released dolls!

Lucky you! I wish I'd been smart enough to call and check on new shipments of mugs before we left home today, then I would have begged dh to go way out of the way to the Disney store to pick one up if they'd had some. Hmmm we are going one day next week, I will have to call and see then.

I wouldn't worry too much. It seems that the mugs will still be available throughout the full 10 weeks of the doll promotion, especially since they are only available at the retail stores. Since more shipments of the mugs seem to recently be appearing across the nation, that's a really good sign. So, whatever you do, don't fall into the current eBay high-priced traps; patience and persistence can pay off in this case. Just keep tabs with your local store.

I can't believe that people are making so much money off of a mug that they spent $7 each on! I mean, I could have bought a lot more mugs to turn around and sell on eBay for $30+ each, but is just something I personally cannot do to other collectors. I feel that everyone who wants to collect an item should be able to buy it at retail price, if possible. On the other hand, I know that selling marked-up collectibles on eBay is how some people supplement their income, but that is just not something my conscience would allow me to do. Of course, that's also why I'm not anywhere near being wealthy! Lol! I have no business sense!

Before the set was coming out I saw people selling the package for $650 on ebay. Disney was only charging $550. So they wanted people to just hand them an extra $100 for no specific reason... Yeah, seems bad

I heard about these dolls on another company's doll forum the week before they released the first princess for sale. I wasn't too sold on getting any of them, but the more I look at the Mulan doll, the more I really hope I can get her tomorrow. She is my absolute favorite female Disney character. I wouldn't mind having Pocahontas, Tiana and Jasmine as well.

I called a store in another state, (I'm from Florida), in search for any of the dolls and found one that had 2 Cinderellas left... of course I purchased them... The lady was really nice over the phone and told me that this week it would be Mulan and the 19th would be Snow White... Hope that helps.

I also went as far as calling the UK and found that they still have all 3 of the dolls available for sale... unfortunately they do not ship out to the US and I don't know anyone who lives out there that I can ask a favor of either...

I wonder what the chances of me being able to get an Ariel or Rapunzel journal are....Are the stores getting more shipments of those?? DH asked me if I wanted the journal that first day in the store and I said no cause I figured I wouldn't use it, but now I've thought of a use for it and want one! lol.

Ah, I see! I really hope that she is right, since Snow White has been my #1 priority for this collection from the start. Well, that, and it's getting ever closer to my birthday... So far as I have seen, hints of future release dates have been through that venue, but I hope no one gets in trouble for "spilling the beans."

Totally agree with that! These dolls are going fast! I'm considering getting a mug... not sure. We'll see The journals are a little pricey and I don't have a use for one right now. I do love the post it notes but they aren't available at my disney store and shipping to canada from the disney store online for just the post it notes is too high!

Thank you! I think I might need to cross all my fingers and toes! I wasn't even thinking of the mugs or journals but I find myself eyeing them too now. LOL

Me and DS5 recently started to collect the Disney trading pins. We don't really have a desire to trade, we just buy ones that we really want and put them in shadow boxes. But I want to keep track of the ones we have, with the Pin Pics number, year it came out, where we got it, stuff like that. So I thought that journal would be nice for that. Really I think I just want it and need to find an excuse to use it LOL
