Disney got some up before I could do the annual hopes/wishes thread.

http://www.disneystore.com/sketchbook-or...romSearch=10002
*banner isn't uploaded yet for it*

The frilly princess ornaments changed this year, so that's nice. Anna is absent though. I usually buy one of these a year, and I really like the Merida one.

I HAVE to have the Lady and the Tramp one with Joe!

Still, here are some hopes/wishes for me:

1. I want that Sword in the Stone ornament that the UK got
2. Tarzan
3. Shang (Mulan)
4. Vanellope
5. Prince from "Beauty and the Beast"
6. Robin Hood
7. Kristoff
8. Oliver (Oliver and Company)
9. Merlin (Sword in the Stone)
10. Sadness (Inside Out)

I was wondering if the Princess ornaments were repeats or modified new designs!

Mary Poppins is a repeat.

Plane Crazy - new

Lady & Tramp - new

Donald & Daisy - new

Roger & Jessica - new

would have to go back and look again . . . at 3:00 it was early . . . and I guess fooling with that darn Disney Movie Rewards and making one account active and de-activating the others . . . de-activated my MAIN ordering from Disney.com account. Argh especially at 3:00 and on my laptop in the dark . . . having to re-set password etc. I think I finally finished checking out at almost 3:40. And I just ordered TWICE in the last 96 hours with the 25% F&F code. I was panicking and about to check out as a guest . . . but finally got it all worked out and they sent the link to re-set and re-activate fairly quick.

Whew!

Now to look forward to more Sketchbook and Park exclusive ornaments!

and there will be many disappointed eBay sellers who have Mary Poppins for the 130.00 range. About six auctions. And several in the 50-70.00 range.

YAY. I missed it last year as it sold out quickly. Glad to have ordered it this a.m.

And Steve Thompson has posted about the Sketchbook ornaments on Facebook today. Saying the "beginning" of them have been added to the website and soon they will have their own section! But no hints.

They already have their own section:
http://www.disneystore.com/sketchbook-ornaments/mn/1014405/
Disney Store didn't put the banner up though. Blast it. The banner sometimes has pictures of ornaments to come.

Well...there is a slight difference between last year's Mary Poppins and this year's. Last year's had a decal on the top of the umbrella that noted the 50th anniversary of the film. Not that that matters much. It's a really pretty ornament, so I highly recommend it to others out there who didn't get it last year. smile

Other than Mary Poppins and the singing Elsa, the rest are new! I hope that's how the rest are. I really don't want to see Jaq and Gus on the glass slipper or the Mickey gang in the Mickey glove balloon. Time to retire some of these. Though, if they want to pull some older ones like Si and Am, I'm all for it! I'd love to have that one, but I can't afford it. I'd also like Figaro and Cleo, the Enchanted Rose, and a few others.

Anyone else notice that the Jasmine ornament specifically says "turquoise" in the title? Do you think the Disney Store.com exclusive this year will be the frilly Jasmine in a different dress color? Much like how Aurora in blue was the .com exclusive last year.

I'll have to update my Photobucket album!

I wish the Disney Store would provide Disney Parks ornaments like this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disney-Parks-Aut...s-/271935227268
And not this:
http://www.disneystore.com/dancing-minnie-mouse-icon-ornament/mp/1379937/1000344/
Seriously, I may have some nightmares from that...

Lots of Aladdin merchandise at Disney.com with them coming out with the video in October. So may be more than just the one so far . . . bet you are right.

smile Now to wait for more.

I actually watched "Aladdin" today. I'm watching the Disney movies in theatrical release order (one a day). And today just happened to be the day for "Aladdin."

I wish I had the time to watch the Disney movies like that. Even one a weeks seems ambitious to me these days, but it would be a very fun project.

I agree with your wish for Sadness. The princess ornaments are not as good as the new Park line. Hoping for a non-princess Mulan. Just put her in an outfit from the film and I'll be happy.

Hoping for some Guardians of the Galaxy ornaments. Thankfully I have a Disney store near me and don't have to pay Disney's ridiculous shipping.

I like a couple of the them, but would like to see all the 2015's before I place my order.

Yeah, I'm waiting for the sale they have every year. But, I'm looking very forward to seeing what's in store. So far, I like these better than last year's. A lot of last year's were repeats and boring to me. Even the Sofia the First ornament looks better than the other ones from that cartoon in the past (not that I'm buying it).

The Tsum Tsum ornament set is a resounding "no" though. I'm not a fan of the idea of taking an app and making ornaments for it. How dated will that look in a few years? Whereas Mickey Mouse is much more timeless.

Anyone see the new Mickey nutcrackers based on Disney attractions? There are two ghost ones for Haunted Mansion, a Minnie It's a Small World one, and a Mickey Tomorrowland one.

There is also a really cute Olaf nutcracker, but it's $60. Nope. I'll pass, thanks.

The Mickey Haunted Mansion one would be a great Halloween decoration. I really like it, but I don't agree with the price tag. Most nutcrackers that size are relatively cheap, and most are still well decorated.

Those nutcrackers look great, but yeah, they are expensive. They kind of remind me of the hat ornaments and shoe ornaments - very cool to look at but no way I can afford to start collecting them.

I must have missed the Olaf one but saw the others.

In years gone by, you used to could get some really GREAT deals at Disney.com . . . they must have previously grossly overproduced many items and it was fairly easy to get stuff @ 75% off . . . and then with an AP or a Disney Visa Discount get another 10% and FREE shipping which many times . . . like my big and very heavy Santa Mickey, all my pin display cases and even my Fab Five Topiary frames . . . they were HUGE, in HUGE boxes . . . nowadays shipping by a regular person would be 30-40.00 bucks easy for one item.

But now . . . you might get a little sale discount . . . but not much unless it is something really less desirable.

Wow those are expensive. Whew, at least I won't be tempted to buy them, even though they are really nice looking!

Do you mean in the stores or online?

I haven't had a Disney Store in my city for nearly eight years, so I can't remember. I'd imagine they'd have them out for sale by late September to early October.

The website usually puts them up starting in late August, so it was a nice treat to have them up early. They slowly leak out a few every 1-2 weeks until around mid to late September. Then, all of them should be up for sale.

I hope for some more live action Disney movies. I really like the Robert Newton Treasure Island ornament that came out. A Swiss Family Robinson would be cool, like an ornament of the tree house. The Shaggy Dog is another. Animation wise, I'd like a Robin Hood.
