    Default Can't believe I did this -- ugh!

    I've always loved the Disney World attraction posters and couldn't believe they were selling 12 x 18 versions of them in a package that included 12 posters for $20! Saw them at the Disney Store online and waited a week to buy them.

    I went online to purchase them today, only to find they were sold out! Ran to eBay and bought the last one that someone was selling -- for $10 more than the list price. Arggghh...

    Lesson for the day -- if you intend to buy it anyway, what are you waiting for?

    I bought these a few weeks ago at WDW. I was going back and forth about whether to get them or not. In the end, the price was so amazing that I got them, even though I may never frame most of them. They are so cool...

    This drives me crazy. Everything on line sells out. We went to a store in Sept and I talked myself out of the princess doll lithos, only to buy them on eBay for more.

    They sell out because people buy them up to sell on eBay. I saw the same prints being sold individually for $25 EACH. And they had multiple copies.

    It really was a great price, and even though I bought them for more, I probably would have paid that originally. It just irks me that I didn't jump on it right away.

    FYI, Walmart sells 12 x 18 glass frames in a package of 3 for $15.

    Well, that's interesting. They "un-sold-out" of those pretty quickly.

    Movies are bad for selling out except on eBay. I'd love for at least two to be released again soon.

    One being Beauty and the Beast. I finally bought one when it came out of the vault last time and now it's lost.

    Next time I guess I'll buy two, in case one sprouts legs again and walks off.

    I can't stand it when people do that. I mean, on the one hand, I get that some people are going through rough times and this may be a good way for them to make extra money. But for the most part, it's just a slimy thing to do. Especially when it's stuff for kids. I think of all those little girls who must have desperately wanted an Elsa dress and their parents couldn't buy one because some sleeze bag scooped them all off the shelves of the local toy store to sell on eBay for ridiculous prices.

    Ok, sorry. Rant over.

    Can you call the parks merchandise phone number and order them? Anyone have that number floating around? It's worth a try...

    I'm tempted to call them about the HM merchandise. It keeps selling out on line. What they have, that is.

    I wouldn't be too hard on yourself. Sometimes those "forced savings" are appreciated down the road. (like reverse buyer's remorse )

    Still no HM cast T in the store. I broke down and ordered the plates, but they only had 2.
    Shouldn't they have an equal number?

    Default T-shirt poster

    In September I bought the original Bobsleds ride poster on a shirt they had offered for 3 days online only. I didn't see anything like it at Disneyland last month.
    I like that it does't say Disneyland on the art.
    It doesn't need to.
    Matterhorn Bobsleds / Fantasyland says it all.

    Word to the wise; If you like it, buy it.
    Chances are others want it too.
