    I was pretty ticked off. Especially because I had to leave work and go to a wifi area to log into the D23 site. I'm not allowed to use the internet at work and I couldn't use my iPhone. Grrr.:headache: I logged in at 12:45 and hit refresh until 1:00 and when the link finally showed up, they were sold out! I really wanted to go. :sad2:

    I missed out also. I was refreshing constantly because I had heard that some other D23 events sold out even before the announced time. As soon as I got it, I filled out my online info... and was sold out. Seconds. Really? The one NYC D23 event, and it comes down to seconds?
    :furious:

    Maybe those of us who didn't get tickets should go in anyway and visit the store after the D23 event. LOL!

    I feel the same; the one NYC D23 event and complete fail for me. So annoying.

    Happy for those who are going, but I get a ping of frustration each time I hear of someone else going. :guilty:

    *especially* when it's the same people who go to each and every D23 event anywhere. *ducks*

    Another opportunity - albeit a limited one. Disney announced yesterday that they are having a contest to find one family to open the Times Square Disney Store.

    Here are the details from Disney's official press release.

    Does anyone know when the store will be open to the public? Also, it would have been nice to give the special 20% off coupon to all the d23 members and not just those lucky enough to get tickets.

    I emailed D23 asking what time the store opened to the public. They said the opening time has not been decided. I would assume its 10AM.

    I think there's enough demand to try to have a DISers meet there. The way I feel right now after the D23 fiasco, I'm in no rush to run over there for the opening.

    Does that mean the general public cannot get in on the 7th?

    I'm sure Nov 7 & 8 will be "soft openings" with Nov 9 being the big day.

    However, Nov 7 is also when the NYC marathon comes through so Times Sq will be a mess!

    I dont think the Marathon runs through Times Square. So there will be no street closures. I plan on being out of there before 1PM.

    Here's the map of the NYC Marathon:

    Oh, that would be nice!

    Nah, I wasn't really interested on going Nov 7th, especially with the marathon.

    The marathoners are supposed to be having some sort of party afterwards. Which means alot more people packed into Times Sq than normal. Which means it'll be a mess.

    I'm thinking either to go in a the soft openings or wait until the weekend after. And there better be Vinylmations left!!! LOL.

    I also want to go in to see Elf the Musical, so I may try to combine all these things. :goodvibes

    It is supposed to open on 1pm on Nov 9th to the general public.

    There are celebrations starting at 9am, but don't know what that means - perhaps senior management & press tour. ??

    If those Vinyls are not out for the D23 event, again, I will be upset. If anyone can find out that would be great!
