Popped into a Disney store today and they had a bunch of Si and Am on the display, and one Vanessa from Little Mermaid! Hooray. Grabbed that at $8. Also, although the Moana singing ornament isn't on sale online, it was on sale in the store, so picked up one of those for $8 as well. They had a lot of the online sold out in stock: Belle at the fountain singing, Si and Am, Robin Hood and Maid Marion, Mickey Clubhouse Balloon, Kion, Elliott, and Captain America Shield. No Mickey and Minnie in the old fashioned car, no Ariel sketchbook with the long mermaid tail (in the pretty princess fabric skirt collection), no Winnie the Pooh in the rabbit hole. No Finding Dory anything. So it was an interesting mix of sold outs and also what's online. I may try another Disney store tomorrow out of curiosity.

When I placed my order yesterday, I did have one ornament in my virtual basket, the Mickey as animator ornament.

Well, it's topsy-turvy day. Mickey and the Beanstalk is back as well as the Lady and the Tramp ornament from the last series. There is a Cyber Monday sale of 15% off orders of $50 or more, 20% off orders of $75 or more and 25% off orders of $100 or more. Every order gets free shipping too. Code is CYBER.

I went ahead and used my $10 off $40 as well as CYBER to get free shipping on the Animator Dolls ornament set. Pocahontas is my favorite doll in that series (I have 5 of these dolls). And I really want Belle in the blue dress as an animator doll. Secondary market price for her in blue is too steep for me. I keep hoping they'll re-release her in blue especially since all of the other products for the animator series have her in blue. All said and done, I got the set for $37.41 with tax for the $59.95 set. So, I can't complain too much. Though, I wanted Lambert. Grr...

I noticed Lady & Tramp was on the search for "ornaments" but was sold out when I clicked on it out of curiosity.

Saw a new jingle bell ornament set I hadn't seen before, Chip & Dale and maybe a Mickey and Minnie set. At one time I had a store display of a spiral metal tree with the pegs spaced around for jingle bell styled ornaments (not Disney) but got rid of it . . . otherwise I would have been tempted by all the new Jingle Bell Disney ornament pairs.

Unless something wonderful jumps in my cart . . . I think I'll just save my money until I arrive at WDW very soon.

It's too bad that Lady and the Tramp sold out so quickly. I think that was one of the few I missed. Oh well. Mickey and the Beanstalk also sold out again.
Alice at the Door is back up for sale. Minnie with Snowman is back up again, but is also marked out sold out when you click on it to add to your cart. Funny how some of these ornaments pop up for a day or two and then sell out again. The warehouse must be finding odd boxes here and there.
Surprised they are using Belle at the fountain singing to advertise the $10 sale as that has been sold out for awhile.

The only jingle bell set I have is the Victorian Mickey/Minnie set since they were so darn cute! I wish they would do a Victorian Donald/Daisy set to complement it.

Finally made it into a Disney store over Thanksgiving while in TX visiting family. There were so many I liked but my goodness are some of them heavy!! I passed on quite a few because of weight and or just plain bad paint jobs. There was a sign up that said they were $8 each but rang up at $10. The girl who helped me was very nice and said they were going to honor the sign price. I also used a $10 off of $50 coupon I had.

Bought:
Little Mermaid on rock (musical)
Belle on Fountain (musical)
Peter Pan Big Ben
Vanessa/Ursula Little Mermaid (they had just gotten these in and had about 6 of them)
Robin Hood
Mary Poppins
Pluto in Glass Ball

They only had one Si & Am but I had to pass on it. It has a huge bald spot on the front of one of the cats. The girl thought they had more in back but could not find any so she gave me a stack of Free Shipping codes to use online. I figure they probably wont be back in stock online but at least I now have a ton of free shipping to use on future purchases.

They are really running out of ornaments for sale online. I had thought they would be in stock until black Friday, but a good number disappeared way before then. They really don't want to have anything Christmas left for sale in January.

I've been seeing the Parks Exclusive Malificent for a few weeks but never ordered. Since the Evil Queen, I think it was, had such bad reviews with lots of breakage reports. I did order and receive the Ursula Parks Exclusive.

Oh and I did finally snag the Partners Parks Exclusive ornament with Walt & Mickey one day last week. It always seemed to disappear with the 20% or 25% sales . . . so finally got 2 of them with my order total qualifying me for 15% off. eh not bad. And did get two of the Moana's for 8.00 each since many times they were still NOT on sale . . . and 15% off those too, I think, I'd have to go and look at my order history. Hopefully it will arrive this week. Shipping has been so slow lately.

Quality seemed to be an issue with quite a few of my orders this year.

3 attempts on the Parks Exclusive Mickey & Minnie @ Entrance to WDW. Gave up. Each time it was something different broken.

1 on Si & Am. Broken tail.

1 on Finding Dory with the characters in the coffee pot.

None - due to reviews on Evil Queen Parks Exclusive.

2 - Limited Beauty and Beast Sketchbook Set. Sent 2 back. Finally did receive an acceptable set that was great.

I think that is all. But geez . . .all the returning and getting replacements. I think B&B took at least 8 phone calls and a online chat or two. Plus the others.

While they had some GREAT ornaments this year, I think with their expanded offerings and now going on 3 monthly series . . . plus all their hat and shoe ornaments which I don't collect . . . I think their quality has suffered a little bit.

With the early sell outs and quality in 2016, I'm glad I bought many early on when they were only 25% off. I don't think I paid full price for anything, exception being the Limited B&B set which was excluded from special codes & offers . . . and I will buy fairly early again in 2017.

So for now . . . the waiting begins until August or September for the 2017 line up.

It was fun participating on the Disney Board here @ Yulelog with the 2016 ornaments with all of y'all~!!!!

oops forgot . . . Vanessa/Ursala . . . I did have to buy that via eBay as there is not a Disney Store within several hundred miles of me. All in all, a great year.

Speaking of the Disney Store, free shipping today.

The Moana limited set is actually on sale too (nice set, still haven't seen the movie and probably won't until it's out on blu-ray). I got my animator doll ornament set today. Very cute. I also got my DMR Finding Dory ornament. Love getting the free ornament! It looks great in person too.

I've had a handful of breakages: Evil Queen from Snow White (as Deana noted), but also Rafiki from Lion King, Rapunzel singing with the guitar, and one of the Partners Statue. All of these were hands breaking off. For three of those, I simply took a digital picture with the broken appendage clearly not attached and contacted Disney via the guest services email on the site. They issued either a replacement or a refund (Partners statue sold out so a refund on that one). For the Rapunzel, I took it to a Disney store to exchange because I didn't trust getting a good one shipped. I appreciated that I didn't have to do any shipping returns (my ornaments came in HUGE shipping boxes and it would have been silly having only one ornament shipped in that big box). They said to either toss the broken ornament, or to fix and donate it to a charity (that was a surprise answer).
But I can understand them wanting to get the big B&B set shipped back. They might be able to assemble a complete set from partially broken sets.

The singing Moana ornament is out of stock again. Probably because of the free shipping with any Moana item: use code MOANA for free shipping.

The boxed set of 6 Moana ornaments is on sale today with free shipping. 40% off (from $69.95 down to $41.97 (or just about $7 an ornament - good deal),

The Sketchbook Mini sets are also finally on sale (they've been at full price for a long time). From $19.95 down to $11.97.
