I was going to order one for Christmas for my wife. I heard this on the news today and read these posts first. Just an FYI: I was able to place an order on giveashare.com tonight with the following message displayed:

"Urgent news! Disney is going to stop issuing paper stock certificates in a few days. Although we canít guarantee it, we believe we can get you the authentic stock certificate before the cut-off if you Order NOW. We will use our best efforts to make that happen and if we are unable to do so, you will have the option for a full refund."

I paid $164.03 for it with frame and shipping. Hopefully they can do it. I will keep you guys posted.

I also used giveashare.com to order one for my husband after I heard the news yesterday. I'd been planning on doing this for his Christmas gift but kept procrastinating. Keeping my fingers crossed that they're able to get the paper stock certificates!

I just purchased 1 from OneShare. I paid $143.38 after a $15 discount. That's with frame and plaque. I called their customer service and was told that it's a 50/50 chance of receiving a real stock certificate or the new non-negotiable one. They said they will issue emails later next week to confirm if you are going to get the real one or not. If you are not going to receive the real one then they will allow you to get a full refund.

Yes it included the engraving.

I wouldn't mind even getting a copy of a certificate (non negotiable) as long as it looked like the actual certificate. Even if it says non neg on it I'd be ok. It still conveys ownership. However, it should then be substantially cheaper as its a copy of an electronic stock for me to consider buying it. I'm not paying 164$ for a copy or "certificate of ownership" unless it looks exactly like the actual stock with the images. Just my thoughts.

I have a feeling that Disney will maybe say no certificates will be issued unless bought directly from us. They make no money really off of the sites mentioned here. Those sites simply buy the stock from them then profit from it. Disney probably said, we get that people like this idea but there is nothing in it for us. To them, they are selling the stock either way. I could be wrong but it seems like a way for them to make the money on it instead of actually spending to print certificates then getting nothing out of these sites selling them to us. Granted, I could be wrong. Just seems odd that it is the most collected stock certificate and they abruptly end it when they could find a way to profit on it themselves.

I ordered some for my kids for Christmas about a week ago.

I got an email last night informing me of the change, and it looks as though my kids will still get their certificates. But, since they need to be printed and sent before October 16, I'll need to watch the mail for them to protect the surprise.

For what it's worth, if you go through http://www.giveashare.com/ , you don't have to pay for a frame. I figured I'll get each kid a binder, and let them select a share (within reason) for each birthday and Christmas.

I just purchased two from oneshare.com. They were $151 each with frames and plaques and all.

I compared Disneystock.com, which sells just the certificate without all the framing, but the savings was not significant ($79 total), and I'd have to get them framed anyway. The transfer fee was $10 higher at Disneystock than at oneshare.

I did have a discount from mousesavers.

I've wanted to do this for my DD since she was born but have always procrastinated....until tonight.

Just ordered one for her with a frame, personalized plaque and shipping to Canada. It was $190.59US in total. The shipping was a silly $39.00 since it's coming to Canada and we always pay a fortune but at least we'll have it.

This will be fun when she's older and can appreciate it more.

Disneystock.com now says this:

Please note..although as of October 16th 2013 Disney will no longer issue physical stock certificates..all orders placed today October 11th will receive a High Quality Colorful Replica Certificate and 1-share book entry Disney account. We are currently not able to guarantee the physical certificate.

The message on giveashare.com has updated to the following:

"Urgent news! We just talked to Disney's transfer agent and we are very confident that if you place your order today, we will be able to get you the authentic stock certificate before the cut-off. Although we cannot guarantee it, the chances are very good. If we cannot get the authentic certificate, you will be given the option to cancel and get a full refund."

That sounds pretty hopeful. I really hope they can pull this off.

I am definitely interested!!! I have been procrastinating because I was not sure how it would work if you wanted more than one share- but only one certificate. Now I guess I better get on it. If you are already a stockholder - I am hoping that they can just give you at least one real certificate.

And, keep in mind:

Even if you get copy certificate, it's still an incredibly cool gift-- they're still stockholders in Disney!!! It may just require more creative packaging.

Good, I just ordered it today (I paid $160-ish, how'd you get yours so low?!) I almost forgot to order. If we don't get a real one then I will request a refund.
