Here are some pictures of my Jack Sparrow dolls and statues. I have more in storage, but these are my favorites.

This is the latest Sparrow from Hot Toys which I dearly love. I missed out on their earlier versions, but he's the best so far.



Sideshow Collectibles PF statue



Miscellaneous dolls, including Barbie's Jack







And here's a portion of my POTC collection. I hate cramming things into a curio, but it's the only way I can display it. I have more in storage.

Sadly, here is my small LE designer doll collection, waiting for me to display properly. The villain dolls are still in the shipper boxes in back. I feel guilty everytime I walk by. And I'm going to acquire many more. Must act soon.

That's awesome. I love it. I have never seen that stuff before.

That one is fairly open, believe it or not. There is no breathing room at all in my Nightmare Before Christmas cabinet.

I always tell DH that I want to move FL and work at HS to be a part of the 3:00 parade. It's always such catchy music hehe. Honestly to work at Disney, they could put me in any park any where and I'd be happy!

Thanks, Sarah! I agree with you about working for Disney. I might do it for free. I always thought it would be heaven to be a part of the Main Street Electrical Parade, but then I wonder if people exposed to it day after day get tired of it and take it for granted.

Beautiful Pirates Collection! We have a large Jack Sparrow Figure. DH collects pirate stuff too, but casually. He does not want to get like his wife with the Little Mermaid, lol.

I've wondered the same thing about Wishes every night. I think I would LOVE to hear or see the show every night, but I wonder if you finally just burned out on it...I sure hope not...

the first time I lived in Orlando I applied at Disney but the only thing they had an opening for was the Christmas store. Im not a huge Christmas/Holiday person and I thought working in there all the time would drive me crazy so I didn't take it.

Now Id love to work for Disney but I cant...I have too many tattoos now.

Working at the Christmas store would drive me crazy too......because I would want everything. I really would be working for free since my paycheck would go right back to Disney.

Speaking of my money going to Disney, I just had to have a couple of the Haunted Mansion items they just added online. I have no willpower.

OMG Sarah, me too! I am going nuts here, I want to see the new Little Mermaid merch already!! This is killing me, but I satisfied my cravings for today and bought these adorable Little Mermaid Storage cubes. They are too cute!
I also received my Mother Gothel Designer doll in the mail today, so I am all smiles

Is anyone thinking they will get the whole Fairytale Collection, and if you are, do you plan to pre-order the entire set, or buy them one at a time? The Disney Store has them up now, although there is no "buy" button yet. I would love to get them all at once and save myself the stress of ordering them individually online (although with an edition size of 6000 I can't see them selling out that quickly). But at the same time I like the feeling of making a score. I sure hate to put that large of a charge on a credit card. Decisions, decisions.
