    I got some too but they seem to blow backwards, did you try yours. Mine are weird. I think I will return them.

    They blow backwards when the batteries are in backwards, check your batteries before you take them back. I did this and a couple other people on other threads too. :blush:

    Can I ask where in Walmart you found them? I was there yesterday, just for a quick trip, but didnt see them on a quick once through. I am going back next week, and would really like them for our trip at the end of the month. Thanks!

    Anyone have any pictures of these fans?

    I absolutely REFUSE to set foot in a WalMart and I'd like to find them someplace else (Walgreens, CVS, Target, Meijer, etc.)

    In Walmart, I found them near the section where they sell portable fans for the house. I've also seen them in Rite Aid, in the seasonal section.

    Our Walmart here in Alabama had a huge bin of those spray bottle/fans and were priced at $1.00 each. When I got to the register they rang up for .50 (yes fifty cents). We ran back and got more! :cool1: :cheer2:

    Don't pack the fans with the batteries in them. I did that to save space (and so that I wouldn't forget the batteries) and they turned themselves on while in the suitcase. Got to WDW and they were dead! :rolleyes:

    Hey, it sounded like a good idea in my head!! ;)

    This is actually the most confusing part...finding them! I had to ask 3 people. Let me preface this by saying I am more of a Target girl than Walmart, in fact I had never been in this Walmart before up until the other day. Anyways, the first lady I asked was wearing that vest that said 'how may I help you' and then I asked her and she couldn't speak English...ummm ok so then I went to a gentleman who told me to look back in the toys or sporting goods section, he thought he saw them there. Once there, I couldn't find them so I asked another young man who worked there and he said 'Yeah I have them in a box in hardware, follow me'. Good thing I asked him because he had them behind a register in a box waiting to be taken out and put on the shelf. My best advice is to ask away once there, you never know where they will be...

    I found mine in the paint section, right above the driveway sealer! How wierd. It was my second trip to Walmart (I hate shopping there!!) & saw on another thread to look in the paint/hardware section. They were $4.96 & we picked up some Disney stickers to decorate. I chose the plastic type of stickers I saw by the greeting cards hoping they may stick better than the paper type. We'll see- even if I have to go buy more it will be cheaper than the getting the $17 Disney ones.

    I saw the fans at Walmart today in what is probably a seasonal aisle (this is a SuperWalmart). They had various fans and then I saw the water fans.

    I bought one from Osco the day before (Jewel - Albertson's in some parts of the country). A little more in price by maybe a dollar or two but the same exact fan.

    I saw an ad for Walgreen's today. I'm not sure if the circular ads are by parts of the country or not but the ad I saw had them on sale. Can't remember the exact price, but in the neighborhood of $5.99.

    Good luck! I used mine yesterday while working in the yard. It was refreshing. I also used the neckband that has some kind of cooling agent in them and it worked fairly well as well (Walmart for $4).

    If anyone can get them, I need four...I will be happy to pay for them plus shipping of course!! It's better than paying $5 something plus shipping from an internet source!!

    I posted this last week, but at the Disney Store I found the same size fans that Walmart carried that you all are talking about and they were $3.00. I bought 4 of them and my mom bought 2. I went there last night and there were still a few in the Clearance bins. It is cheaper than Walmart and has the plus of Mickey already on it!! It came with a lanyard strap.
