Looking for Olaf plush in the park

Does anyone know if an Olaf plush is available to purchase somewhere in the parks? I've already checked Mousegears, and the Disney site is sold out. Also looking for the 2014 calendar with the park attraction posters if anyone knows where to find that. Thank you for any help!

We have looked and asked each day we have been here. There are none. They have the ones that have the press button and talks. But there is no stuffed, plush Olaf. A CM confirmed that for me in HS today.

Maybe i was imagining it but i could have sworn my ds and i were looking at a stuffed Olaf at the world of disney store at dtd just last week. I just asked him and he agreed with me. I remember him squishing it. They were plush and in the princess room by the bbb. They were on an endcap type display facing the doorway coming into the room from the other part of the store.

We have not been to Downtown Disney yet. We have only been in the parks. Hmmmm.... I guess we need to make a trip and check there. We had not planned to go at all once the CM said there were none.

We looked all over World Showcase. Was it completely plush? Or did it have that press button to talk? Those look plush but they really aren't. They have hard places inside dues to the talking.

So far we have been to Epcot for two full days, MK for two full days, and HS for one full day. We have looked at every store in each of those parks and we have asked CM in several stores. We have not found any that are completely plush, that you can hug and sleep with. DD wants the stuffed animal kind for sleeping. The ones we are finding look plush but they are not. They are inside a box. You can press a button in his foot and he talks. He is in a box. So if someone was able to pick one up and hug him in Downtown Disney, that one might be different. You can't hug the ones I am finding because they are in a box. Maybe the Downtown Disney ones are like the Disney Store ones. We have some extra time on Friday and will check there. I hope that helps. We have been on a mission to find one too.
ETA: Today is AK day for us. We plan to check there too. We also still have one more day in each of the other parks as well to check. But we will try to check Downtown Disney on Friday now.

Here is the merch display when the movie came out. I recall that the Olaf's not in the box were plush:



Perhaps they're sold out now? I saw them at MK, DTD, and Epcot.

Good luck! Olaf is EXTREMELY popular! We are (or were as of last night...not sure what shipment brought) completely sold out at the Disney Store in Times Square.

Thank you!
We are only seeing those pictured in the box, not those others. The others must be sold out at the stores we have checked.

When we were there Dec. 6-7, they were completely sold out. Emailed a CM at merchandising about it today and she said he was currently not on reorder, but because of his popularity would probably be in the new year. While we were at DTD, a CM had told us they were waiting for a new shipment. So who knows when they will get them! My local JcPenney had tons of them before the movie came out and I should have gotten one then. When we got back from Disney, I went back and they too had none.

Good luck finding him. From what I have heard, he's sold out across property and they are currently awaiting shipment, hopefully soon. But I do know it was sold in Norway, as well as World of Disney.
Disneystore.com does have an Olaf plush available though!

This reminds me of what happened when the Lotso plushes became available a few years ago... Selling out like crazy!

I asked this question on a Diser Facebook page and I had two people reply back that CMs told them a lot of the merch is out until March! I really hope that's not true but who knows...
