Just catching wind of this now and placed my order. Well, two of them. Haha.

I placed two orders as close to $100 as possible to maximize discount on each using SAVE20 for the $20 off, then SHIPMAGIC for free shipping. Picked up the Sketchbook Mickey and Beanstalk, Belle variant limited, the light up Enchanted Rose (#1 on my I want it list from the previous editions), lighted BB-8, a musical Belle, the UP house.

After getting the bill for the Hallmark comic con exclusives and now this, plus expense to attend Hallmark signing, I think I've over-extended myself. But oh, what ornament joy!

Bummed !!!
I got an email a couple days ago from Coupon Cabin that the Disney Store SAVE20 promo was extended till 8/18, so today I went to buy my Beanstalk Mickey and five of the Sketchbook ornaments, but the promo code didn't work. All the CS rep at the Disney Store would say was "I'm sorry that code is expired".

No couppy, no order !!!

Me too! That one's high up on my list. So creative! I also want the Frozen singing ornament since I like that depiction better than Hallmark's.

Just waiting for the sale...

Tomorrow, I should get Mickey and the Beanstalk as well as the Belle variant! laugh My Alice in Wonderland ornament showed up from ebay today (a day earlier than the USPS site said). It's sooo cute! My new favorite Alice ornament.

I'm holding off on ordering until I head to the Disney Store in a couple of weeks. I'll see what kind of deal they have this year. And, if they don't have some that I want that are on the website, they'll order them for me and I get free shipping. I'm looking at a couple of dozen of them so I really don't want to order that many online.

The Finding Dory sketchbook boxed set is on sale 40% off with the code BONUS40 at checkout. Regularly $59.95 for the set of five, it is now $35.97. Also on sale is Lock, Shock, and Barrel from Nightmare Before Christmas. Normally $22.99, on sale for $13.79. It has a 4 star review rating, but almost every review mentions breakage, either in shipping or shortly afterwards. There are a few Disney Shoe ornaments on sale as well, but I think that's it for ornaments. Lots of other stuff (like t-shirts) in the 40% off sale.

My box arrived and I'm really pleased for the most part with these ornaments. The light up BB-8 from Star Wars is highly detailed. Belle singing at the fountain is really fabulous. Mickey and the Beanstalk was well done (surprised it didn't come in the outer shipping carton like these usually do). A little disappointed in the stem and leaves for the Enchanted Rose (it really looks like cheapo plastic) but LOVE everything else about that ornament. Everything was well packed and for the first time in eons I didn't have something break in shipping.

You're making me want to buy those ornaments. I don't need them. I don't need them. I don't need them....

My ornaments arrived today. I absolutely love them. I still wish they weren't quite so big, but I think these might be some of the best Disney Store ornaments yet.

On Saturday I received my order.

Mickey & the Beanstalk, Toy Story, Black Widow, Rey, BB-8 all looked great, but my Finding Dory was broken. Her tale was broken off inside the coffee pot. Not an easy fix, so I contacted the Disney Store and they are sending me a new one.

Another broken Finding Dory here. Nemo and Marlin were just flopping around in the coffee pot and were broken off the "stem" they were suppose to be on. Disney is sending a replacement.

I thought about trying to open up the coffee pot and glueing the fin/tale on, but decided to just get a replacement.

Replacement shipment is due middle of next week.

Yeah, that would be a bummer if a second one arrived broken. Hope this isn't going to be one of those "always breaking" ornaments.

My Finding Dory arrived Monday in good shape. Yay.

After 3 strikes with the WDW Entrance Santa Mickey/Minnie ornament . . . I was very glad the replacement was a.o.k. the first try.

Glad they got everyone's replacements to them okay!

It's one of the biggest downsides to having to resort to ordering from the Disney Store website instead of having a brick and mortar store: we can't pick out the best paint jobs and make sure the items aren't broken.

I'm hoping they'll have the annual sale price (even if it's not $10 this year) starting on Monday. If they'll kindly put up the ornaments they don't have yet, that would be great. Though, I read the reviews on the UK site for the Frozen singing ornament for "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" and the reviewers say that it's not the original singers. That's interesting since Disney usually will use their original voice recordings. The reviewers both say it's even different words to the song... I wonder if that's why it "sold out" within a couple of days on that site and hasn't been back and why it isn't on the US site. Maybe they're going to fix it.

Also, learning from the reviews, it seems like the Ariel singing ornament plays the same sound byte from the ornament last year. Anyone have this ornament yet and can confirm this? Anyone have the Rapunzel singing ornament who also has the 2014 Rapunzel singing ornament? I'm wondering if they are using the same clip too. I'll skip the Ariel since I like last year's sculpt much better if they're the same. I'll skip the Rapunzel too for the same reason if it's the same clip or one of the same (that 2014 ornament plays 2 clips).

I'm hoping I can stay away from buying anymore Disney Store ornaments until November, but the chances of that happening are slim especially if they run a great sale.
