  • D23 Expo Shopping Question?

    When the Expo opens to D23 members August 19 at 9:00am, I want to go to the Dream Store and get exclusive merchandise before it sells out fast. But I also want to go to the Disney Living Pavilion for the Disney Store 25th Anniversary show.

    What do I do?

      Some of the Limited Edition stuff will run out early, so it all depends on what items you want and how bad you want them.

      Last year there were some things that only like the first 50 people or so in line got. I was in line before 6:00AM each day in order to have a chance at some of those items.

      You're just going to have to make a personal judgement call.

        They did do a voucher system last time for some of the things like pins and the ornament and Vinylmation. Supposedly if you got in line, got the voucher, your item should be still available to purchase later in the day. Whether they do that this time...haven't heard anything.
        My question is if they are honoring the WDW & DLR Annual pass discounts, will they honor cast member discounts?

            for the RSP and pre orders things we got (Sorcerer and Premier) cast discounts were honored as were AP.
            I haven't seen anything about vouchers this time around, so don't know if they'll do that again.

              Just to let everyone know, they've updated the website and there seems to be a lot of cool stores coming to the Expo:
              • D23 Expo Dream Store- specializing in D23, Expo, and Parks merchandise
              • Mickey's of Glendale- specializing in WED Enterprises and Walt Disney Imagineering merchandise
              • Walt Disney Archives Treasure Trove- featuring collectibles and merchandise based off the Archives and Archives exhibit
              • A Small World Village- specializing in Small World and Mary Blair clothing and accessories
              • Disney Store- Not too much info on this one, but I'm guessing it'll consist of basic Consumer Products merchandise

              I hope this sheds some light on the shopping situation for some people!

                Is there a list of the limited edition merchandise?

                I apologize for all the questions, I am new to D23 and pretty excited. My grandfather has collected a lot of stuff for me since I was born (the 1976 Disney Train Set) and more items and am looking forward to getting some more stuff to my collection.

                  Personally, I'm very excited to see what Mickey's of Glendale will be offering! Whether or not I can afford to purchase anything... or SHOULD purchase anything is a completely different story.

                    Me too! I bought so much from them during the Disneyana sale and show in July. I hope they bring different merchandise.

                      I'm also new to the D23 Expo and was wondering if even regular, open edition items from places like Mickey's of Glendale will be left if I don't get to the stores until later in the day. Were a lot of people lined up at 6:00 AM with you, Roger55?

                          I was amazed at how many people were in line for merch last time on Thursday AM. I got to the Convention Center around 6:30 AM, and the line for shopping was considerable. They did pass out "coupons" to those in line for limited edition pins & lanyards, guaranteeing you that item until later that day (6:00 PM, if I remember correctly). After that, anything leftover was up for grabs.

                            By 6:00 AM there were quite a few people already in line. Can't remember for sure, but probably around 100 or more.

                            This expo they are having the special Sorcerer and Premiere packages which allows some of the die-hard fans to pre-order a lot of the merchandise. This might reduce slightly the number of people who feel they need to be in line by the crack of dawn.

                              thanks everyone for the replies to my question.

                              I didn't see the tron monorail set that people were talking about. I thought it was limited to 3000.
