On our late February trip (only 3 1/2 months ago), two of the items we purchased were a set of vinyl cutting boards shaped like Mickey's hand, Mickey's shorts and Mickey's shoe (purchased at WoD), and a pair of brown leather sandals for me at the main shop at Disney's Boardwalk Inn. The color on the cutting boards, like the red in Mickey's shorts, is already wearing off, and is in some cases almost completely eroded. And although I know they are made to cut on with a knife, the scratches across the boards are completely visible. The sandals are the kind that have a thing that goes in between your big toe and the next toe. After only having worn these a couple times, I wore them last week. As I was getting into my car (which is high because it's an SUV) I stepped up with one foot and the propelled myself up like I always do. Well my foot moved, but the bottom of the sandal stayed immobile on the floormat of the car, and my foot ripped the tab that goes between your toes! It didn't just come off from the sole, it ripped completely in half and I barely touched it! It looks as if I cut it with a scissor, but I swear that's how it happened. It didn't happen at home and so I was mad, because I had somewhere else to be, but I couldn't walk with these so I had to go home and change shoes. There are many stories of how Disney Parks merchandise has declined in quality and these are just two more examples.
