Star Wars Weekend (updated 6/16/13)

So I know that it's not in DLR but in WDW but I was wondering if anybody knows if any of the merchandise will be available for purchase at DLR or online? I'm interested in the die cast car set that resembles the Star Wars characters.

bump.

Does anybody know or has anybody seen the Cars die cast characters as Star Wars characters for sale at DLR or is it only available at Star Wars Weekend in FL?

I can't figure out how to post a picture as it asks me to post a url link but an example of one of the items is Mater is Darth Vader and the tractors that he tips is a Storm Trooper and the porsche is Princess Leia.

And meant to quote the other posters, but not good enough on this board to figure out how to do it, so hope they get this information.

Here is a link for the merchandise available this year. I took the liberty of pasting the "blog" question and answer for the Cars SW die-cast cars.

Cheers!

Steven,
Very excited about the Cars Star Wars die-cast cars! Will these be available online or through guest services after SW Weekends? Thanks!

Steven Miller on March 27th, 2013 at 5:32 pm
@Frank – These items will be introduced during Star Wars Weekends. The plan is to carry them beyond the event at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. They won’t be offered online. I don’t have item numbers for them yet but our Merchandise Guests Services team may be able to help you once released.

May the 4th Be with You!
Available on May 4, 2013, While Supplies Last

The force is strong with Limited Time Magic! In honor of Star Wars day, Disneyland Resort is selling special edition Star Wars-themed pins and tees. With messages like "May the Fourth Be with You" and "Revenge of the Fifth", you can wear all the hyperspace hilarity on your sleeve! So do, or do not… but if you do, do so while supplies last at Disney Pin Traders in Downtown Disney District or Little Green Men Store Command in Tomorrowland at Disneyland Park. Only a Sith would miss this magic event!

Are you responding to my question about the Cars die cast cars as Star Wars characters or the post above about the pins?

Yes, it was the Cars die cast cars as Star Wars characters that I saw at World of Disney right after Easter. I think they were in 2-packs.

Thanks for this information. I'll be calling the merchandise number today to see what they tell me. I tried calling this weekend but they were closed and I tried calling the World of Disney store but it just went to a recording saying that they were busy helping people in the store.

You are welcome. We usually go down to DLR because it is easier for flights, so just a fluke that I will be in WDW for this merchandise.

Welcome! I have learned so much on DIS that I am trying to pay it forward. I hope they actually put these for sale online as well because I have friends and family here in Canada that want them. (And I don't want to bring back a dozen sets either. LOL.)

And to whet yours and Epek's appetite here is an enlarged picture of Cars SWW 2013:

(Hope that link works).

I just called the Disney merchandise telephone number and the person on the other end said that I wasn't able to purchase the products until they're officially released. (confused because someone on here said they've seen them at the World of Disney store in Anaheim.) She then said that once they're officially released, you have to wait until the event actually ends before the merchandise dept can actually sell them and that won't be until June 9th.

I just emailed the merchandise email address to ask them about it to see what they say.
