    One share.com. You can buy 1 share, in pristine condition, not folded or creased. Frames are great also.

    They only offer replicas now:
    "Disney will no longer issue stock certificates. Your registration will be held electronically and OneShare will issue a Disney replica certificate in lieu."

    This makes no sense. At the Investor pavilion at the D23 Expo this year they were handing out surveys that asked what people would like to see on the next stock certificate that will be issued.

    Oh well, I have mine.... I guess I'll hold on to it!

    OneShare told me it was impossible due to they take around 3 weeks to issue one....I bought it YESTERDAY, one day before the news!
    Disney should at least give a month before dropping a bomb like this! :'(

    Is it held through a broker (in which case the shares are likely in "street name"), and you'd have to instruct your broker to transfer the shares into your name. Or, do you hold them directly in your name? In which case you should instruct the transfer agent, Broadridge, to have your shares changed to certificate form. The transfer agent is the one who issues the certs.

    I do the investment plan. I am pretty sure it's completely in my name (not like 401K plan or anything).

    On my statements it says how many we have and then how many we have in book form (which is all of them) and how many we have in certificate form (which is none).

    So I guess I should call them tomorrow and ask. I was hoping there was some easy/fast form to fill out and get taken care of before time is up :(

    For the investment plan, you most likely need to contact the plan's administrator - which is probably also Broadridge. Check your statement for contact info for the plan administrator.


    ETA:

    From recent SEC filing...

    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 can’t 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.
