The truth is that part of my disappointment in not getting Ursula is that I tend to be a completist as a collector which is not a good thing. I had already made up my mind not to get Eric because I have to draw the line somewhere and decided it would be with the LE princes. But I want all the other dolls and know I will pay the best price for them at time of release.

Right now I think I am much more disappointed with Disney's handling of the sale than I am in not getting the doll. What can be worse than feeling mistreated by the Happiest Place on Earth? It is my intent to get Ursula someday along with a bunch of other dolls. At least now I don't have to worry about space for her.

Ariel next week! I have convinced my daughter and a friend to join me for the raffle.

I received Belle and the Beast yesterday - perfect condition.

Sure hope my name gets called in that raffle next Tuesday.

So my friends weren't to get belle and beast last week. Hoping next week goes better. Ugh! MU have the over priced eBay people but if I get a extra Ariel I'm gonna try to sell or trade it for a belle. Chances are slim. I'm still missing Snow White from the first set. I just can't bring my self to pay for her. Good luck everyone!

Wishing everyone good luck! I hope these dolls go to collectors that will truly appreciate them.

I was hoping to have two people accompany me to better my chances, but it's down to one since my daughter could not change her work schedule. I don't have a good feeling about the drawing because I think there will be many more people participating than dolls available, and I don't have good luck with these things. But I'm not stressing about it. I guess that's because there is still the chance to get the set online.

Wonder of Wonders, Miracle of Miracles!!!! (sorry, I love Fiddler on the Roof ). My name was called and today I was able to add Ariel and Eric to my Fairytale Collection. There were 17 dolls available and 33 people showed up for the drawing. I was the 7th name called (well, techically the 8th since one person called earlier did not step forward). My friend who went with me was called a short time after me and she had her name cast aside which made one more person happy.

I love this set so much. Ariel's dress is gorgeous. I would love to turn Eric's head a little more to the front, but try as I might I could not get the acrylic case off. I knew I was going to break something if I kept at it, so I let it go. He's not doing the exorcist thing Rapunzel was doing, so I can live with it.

I hope everyone who went to the stores today had the same luck I did, and if not, I wish you the best of luck online tonight.

I was lucky enough to get called 14th for myself and my girlfriend was last of 25 dolls. Now to find belle and beast, Snow White and Pocahontas from the first set to complete them. Hopefully I can get it together and make d23 next year and preorder the whole set so I can skip this crap.

I'm glad you all got Ariel!!

My mom was unable to snag one for my niece I'm not sure if she tried online last night, though.

Disney has totally mishandled the whole Disney Designer Doll Collection sales. I only wanted Ariel, and was at my local Disney store yesterday morning. They didn't accept names until noon, and did the drawing at 1PM. About 100 people showed up......for 13 dolls! I was told that they only received 13 dolls each time, and that was what every store received. That is clearly not the case based on previous posts!

Every store get numbers based of the previous collector sales. My store had 28. They has 32 snow whites. It sucks not getting the one you want but the way they do it now cuts down on the eBay people who brought their entire family including children to purchase the designer princesses. Now that was a joke! At least this way it gives everyone a fighting chance. I do think they shouldn't hold them back for online sales since the site crashes and people get the dreaded email. If your really a collector and really want one you'll figure out a way to get to the store.
