    Yes available on-line at 12 AM PST - so set the alarm before 3 AM on the East Coast!! Also a list of stores will be provided before Monday so guests will know which stores will have the dolls and who will not. Product that goes along with the dolls - mugs, journals, etc. will be available in the stores when opened for business in the morning.

    Well, I am heading out tomorrow for a long drive (almost 2 hours!) to get to my nearest Disney Store! I know this sounds silly... especially since I have never collected anything in my life... But I was SO disappointed when I found the Designer Princess set close to the end of its release and was unable to get them.

    I am now determined to attempt this set! :yay: I have saved and budgeted so that I can get a doll each week. So myself, along with a close friend and her husband, are going to drive to the store. I have never even drove to this mall before LOL So, I'm hoping to make it in one piece *fingers crossed* And get lucky enough to be drawn. But if I don't, there is always the second attempt online!

    :shamrock: :shamrock: Good luck to everyone going to their store tomorrow! :shamrock: :shamrock:

    Good Luck to you also!

    I'm also going to try at the Disney Store and just have no idea how many people to expect. Looking forward to reading the stories of 'winning' the villain dolls.

    Have fun and Good Luck to all Disney Fans!

    :coffee: Well, I'm off! I am not sure how many to expect either. When I think about it, it is a Monday. Many people are at work. Busy with their daily lives, etc. I'm not sure they will go out of their way in the middle of the day to go to a Disney Store; however, I have been fooled before! We will see when we get there! :goodvibes

    Just got back from the Times Square store. I'd say there were about 30 people there and I got the impression that they had enough dolls for everyone. My name was called early so I didn't stick around to see if that was true.

    I think between the lack of recent promotion (no tweets, no email over the weekend or this morning, etc.), the edition sizes and the price, these will be much easier to come by than the Princesses. There also doesn't seem to be as much excitement on DIS as there was for Princesses.

    Disney perhaps has learned their lesson that when you over-hype a limited product release, bad things will happen.

    Oh, they also had a LE 1000 porcelain plate of the Evil Queen available for purchase. I forgot to check the price but I didn't remember seeing that until today. They had all the dolls on display as well. Some of them I really don't like. I think Maleficent, Evil Queen and Cruella are the winners here.

    I got my doll! They also had enough for everyone who showed up at my store (Smithhaven Mall). :wizard:

    However, I'm worried that next week won't be so easy. There were a lot of people calling other people to come down and pick up the leftover dolls. I'm hoping they weren't ebayers. :worried:

    Yeah there were lots of people calling and then interest when we all lined up to purchase but they still had half their stock left as of 3pm this afternoon. Fingers crossed next week is nice and quiet again :)

    That's good news! I really just want it to be fair for all the people who are true collectors and fans and not all the ebay nonsense that happened last time.

    The last time around I was able to get the first three dolls with no problems, the first in store and the second two online and then NONE after that and I had to buy the rest off ebay and it was ridiculous. My daughter has OCD and if it wasn't for that (and my own sense of doll collecting, I admit) I would have given up and not tried to get them off of ebay.

    This new way at least seems way more fair. I'm hoping everyone who wanted one got one today!

    :banana: I got a doll today! :banana: And everyone who wanted one in the store, got one! One guy joked about being an eBay buyer and said he was going to buy them all... My friend and I thought he was serious for a few minutes... But he was actually there with his older mother who collects dolls and was just hinting at the fiasco from the Princesses. Their name got called first, my friend's second, mine third! Congrats to everyone who was successful today! I'm so happy with Maleficent and can't wait to try on Monday for the Evil Queen! pixiedust:

    The crew at my Disney Store was very helpful and happy about the way they were being released. The manager said that she was glad we liked our experience and that it went much better than they had planned for! My store had 20, so everyone got a doll who put in for one. She said she was hopeful it would be this nice for all 6, but not to count on it. Her crew had to put up with all types of harassment from customers during the Princess doll release.

    Well, now I'm off to hang some shelves for my new, and first, collection! :love:

    Hello fellow Disney collectors.

    Well, my plan was to buy Maleficent tonight online and avoid missing work, etc. to get the doll in store, but when I called my Disney store to ask what time they'd be online, I was SHOCKED to hear that they still had three dolls left at 2pm!! So, I high tailed it to my store and got one!

    Feeling good, excited for next Monday. I am probably only going to get two or three....queen of hearts is a must for my Alice-loving daughter and maybe the Evil Queen from Snow White just cuz her dress is so cool. We'll see!\

    They had all of the accessories in store today: mugs, bags, journals, the works. The journals are nicer quality, embossed leather, but no pens with them. I got the compact and two mugs.

    I've got the fever again! LOL....

    according to my source they still had 8 dolls when he left work today. I'm worried though that they will stat promoting them more since all our GTA stores were concerned that there were so many left and nobody sold out. Just keep your mouths shut until after next week LOL

    I bought the 6 mugs and the make-up bag on labor day Monday and returned the next day with my friend who wanted the set and they had pulled them off the shelf and wouldn't put them back out til today. I had to race over to square one on my lunch to get my name put in the draw, there were about 30 people in line. My name was drawn 2nd thankfully it was a really slow process, they checked my ID 3 times!!!! My friend called this evening and they still had 12 dolls left. Not sure if I can do this agin next week, don't think I will make it back to work in time. I really want Ursula but leave for Disneyworld on September 28 and don't get back til October 8th :( Bad timing!!!!!!
