    Does anyone know why Disney Deals on eBay moved to DisneyAuctions? I have been totally bummed since this happened.

    Even though this is SUPPOSED to be a replacement, I haven't seen any of the same type of merchandise on the new site that I saw on eBay. I loved getting little Disneyland surprise presents for my two DD ages 3 and 9 between our trips. It kept the magic alive.

    I wanted to start group therapy because I've been so depressed about it. Hopefully, I'm not alone.

    It was the one place I could get new Disneyland/Disney World stuff dirt cheap, even though the shipping was high. Oh well, guess most good things eventually come to an end... :rolleyes2

    I miss it too! I was able to get a bunch of neat souvenirs for XMAS presents for our XMAS 2004 trip with extended family. I also bought several shirts & sweatshirts for all of us.

    I definitely miss it! :( I was so excited last year when I was able to get a bunch of playing cards real cheap! We had coworkers who wanted us to bring them souveneirs from our wedding trip so we got those and had them waiting for months before we went to give them when we got back. :)

    I have definately been missing it! I used to check it every few days for new items. They had such great stuff, sometimes anyway. I bought me and my girls' Christmas hats for next to nothing and it was always a great place to find discontinued park clothing items.

    I agree, the new site is not a replacement. For one thing, who can afford most of the stuff on the auctions site?! I mean, really, disneydeals was just that... DEALS! Oh, well. I guess I will just have to actually buy my park stuff in the parks!

    Thanks for giving me a reason to vent!

    Hmmm wonder if it also has to do with any of the Character Premiere stores?? Coincidentally, our neighborhood Character Premiere downsized and doesn't have nearly the same fun stuff they had before and there are barely any bargains!! I was so bummed to see they did that. Not sure if they changed the ones in the Orlando area. Possible this is tied in with the Ebay store since it's all park merchandise?? Their merchandise was very similar to that on Disneydeals. :(

    You had the same idea we did! We always bought office gifts on Disney Deals that we could "bring back" to share the magic with our friends. I can't afford to do that now! Plus, who has room in their suitcase for anything extra?? I never do!

    I miss it dearly! I literally bought something from them every week. The replacement is no good, haven't bought a thing and don't plan to.

    I know several people who miss it dearly, me included. :guilty: I would buy the greatest goodie bag items from them - all the Moms thought I was the greatest. Time to burst that bubble. :rolleyes:

    Me too!
    I found such good deals on so many different things. I guess I got used to those prices and can't stand to pay what they ask for things on Disney Auctions. Haven't bought thing!

    Disney auctions and Disney outlet are NOT the same as Disney Deals. :sad2:

    We would buy items for my kids to give out to their class. It was a lot cheaper than getting it at the park and made a way for us to be able to give the kids a gift.

    I REALLY miss it! I found lots of great deals! My favorite finds were t-shirts, hats, the wooden Castle cutout and the Castle shaped Hats. I had so much fun buying souvenirs from there.

    Has anyone seen anywhere else online to by Disneyland merchandise at a decent price? I've bought things from other sources, but their prices are higher than buying at the store (which wasn't cheap to begin with!). I haven't tried the direct delivery (can't remember the name), because I'm never sure what I want to buy until I see it.
