Oh, I just ordered another Art of Snow White set and will hopefully get a good one because, now it's 40% off. Bull.

https://www.shopdisney.com/art-of-snow-white-ornament-set-limited-edition-1435793

Good time to buy it. I'm really ticked off that they did this sale though on a limited item they haven't even had for a month.

The Star Wars limited set, Marvel limited set, and Disney Designers limited set are also 40% off. The miniature ornament sets also count.

Thanks for the heads up. I picked up the Art of Snow White and the Star Wars set at 40% off. Even at 40% off I feel like the Marvel set is overpriced, so passed on that. It's too bad the Frozen and Coco sets were not part of the deal or I would have thrown those in the cart as well.

Noticed they limit purchase to one, or I would have purchased two of the Snow White sets, just so that I could pick and choose to keep one really good set. Does anybody know when I'm eligible to purchase another? Does it just have to be a different purchase (same day) or could I do it the next day? The 40% off sale ends Saturday.

Saw that somebody on eBay sold Snow White in her drudgery dress separately from the set and it went for $41 plus shipping! I guess if that's the only piece in the collection you really wanted it makes it more cost effective, but still I was surprised it went that high.

I also noticed the triple Pooh characters in the Sketchbook line for sale online so that's not a Disney Store exclusive. I wonder if they'll have a Disney Store exclusive this year? They also are selling Beast in the Bathtub again this year. That was my "must have" last year. It's a great design.

Pascal with the Lantern has not popped back up online, so I may see if they have any in the Disney store today.

No idea how soon you can order. Maybe within 24 hours? The Marvel setís price makes it $9 each, which isnít bad. Iíll go see the Marvel movies, but I have no interest in the ornaments.

And I had ordered mine a week or so ago. And whoever packed it, it was great. They had wrapped the whole box in bubble wrap and shipped info a big box with lots of brown shipping paper to cushion it. It is still available though.
Hmmmmmmm, do I need another one? :-)

We have a new set of ornaments this morning! Stan, you were wondering about Star Wars, well we got a set of 6 ornaments for "The Last Jedi."
https://www.shopdisney.com/star-wars-the-last-jedi-ornament-set-1452903

It does not say it is limited, so I'm going to wait for a sale. Friends and Family should pop up in November. Love the Luke Skywalker ornament and the Finn ornament. Rey on the other hand...lol not a good one. The one from last year was a good likeness. The others are in the middle.

Star Wars 40th anniversary limited set finally sold out. Debuted in May, so took a long time. I guess the bonus 40% off really helped it.

Thanks for the info Amanda. I like the set. Wish the ornaments were bigger then 3 inches. Definitely will wait for a sale. 40% would be great. I'd buy the set for around $40.

We've got a sale now. 20% off $75 or more or 25% off $150 or more.

Luckily, I always buy toys for Toys for Tots from the Disney Store, so I'm able to get "The Last Jedi" for 25% off! Got the animator doll Cinderella for myself as well (they're on sale for $20, so with the discount, that's more than $10 off retail).

For Toys for Tots, I got the Belle animator doll and Tod and Copper medium plush. I also got plush Sorcerer Mickey, which I buy every year for Toys for Tots.

If the animator dolls hadn't been on sale, I may have skipped doing this, but that's a great deal to get them for $15 each, and I've wanted the Cinderella one for a while. She wasn't available through most of 2016 and more than half of 2017.

I put a few things in my cart to see what would happen with the sale... the Last Jedi set was discounted, but the Olaf's Frozen Adventure set did not have the discount applied. Well pooh and bother.

The Art of Snow White set also doesn't get the discount applied, which is really weird that they'd take a 40% off of it, but not 20 or 25%.

I've decided to wait on the Last Jedi since I've bought so much recently. It's too bad they didn't release that set earlier so I could have purchased it when I bought most of the other ornaments.

Do you think this is it for US ornament releases, or is there still hope for more characters?

Art of Snow White and Olaf's Frozen Adventure are considered limited, so the site's just doing as it was programmed to do. The 40% off was definitely better, and part of me wonders if that was an oops that they put it into that sale.

There's always a chance for more releases, but I think this is it except possibly ornament sets.

Speaking of ornament sets, I got my Art of Snow White set today! New, new, new! It had the outer carton with a sleeve of plastic over the whole thing and the original tape. Snow White with the candle had no cracks, so I was golden! I did go through and compare all of the paint jobs and exchanged about half of them. For little things except the prince's eyes. Newer set had his right eye looking too far over (poor guy). So, I was happy to have the older set to exchange them. Old, horrible D23 reject set will be heading back to Disney.

The bonus 40% off sale is back, so you can get the Art of Snow White set, the Marvel set, and the Disney Designers Set for 40% off as well as the miniature ornament sets.

Star Wars sold out, and I'm happy The Last Jedi isn't a part of this (would have annoyed me).

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

NO Deana. You do not need a second set.

Funny thing, people still have them for 300+ & even 400+ over on the bay.

Belle singing ornament has shown up on the site, so I guess we weren't done after all.

It's still kind of sad that they didn't do a Snow White exclusive like how they did with Aurora in 2014, Jasmine in 2015, and Belle in 2016 (same years each of them were the focus of the Art of line). She also should have had a singing ornament. Bummer. The singing ornaments are so disappointing this year. What, 4 repeats and only 2 new ones?

Also looks like the Art of Snow White ornaments FINALLY sold out. I figured they'd sell out quickly after the first round @ 40% off but apparently Round 2 did the trick. Or at least it didn't show up on my "search" last night. Crazy what some of the "individual" ornaments fetch on eBay, even the B&TB set from last year has some spendy individual ornaments.

Early Bird F&F 25%, I think it was 25% and not 20%, starts tomorrow for Disney Rewards Visa Cardholders.

I'll have to look around and see what I can get. Hope they have some new Christmas tshirts . . . for our trip, I think mine from last year might be too big . . . which is a good thing.

Most of the Sketchbook line are expensive on the secondary market. Iíve seen some that are over $100. Definitely higher resell value over Hallmark Disney ornaments.

Received my first Snow White Set and the Star Wars set. Art of Snow White looks fabulous. Love the packaging on the Star Wars set, but the paint jobs are kind of meh on the actual ornaments, especially the faces.

I'll go ahead and tell you that "The Last Jedi" set ornaments are in the same scale as the Star Wars set. But, I don't think "The Last Jedi" ones are resin. They feel like the plastic Hallmark uses, to be honest. If they are resin, then I've been fooled. I'm glad they're in the same scale though. Maybe if they keep doing these sets for the other movies (I won't buy Episodes I-III, but I would buy "Empire Strikes Back," "Return of the Jedi," "The Force Awakens," and "Rogue One"), they could make a nice tree someday.

Since no one's mentioned it yet, it is Friends & Family weekend. 25% off your order.

I went ahead and finished up my Sketchbook ornaments for the year:

Maleficent
Lilo & Scrump
Moana frilly princess
Rapunzel frilly princess
Mickey & Minnie Hawaiian Vacation
Miguel singing

Also bought the Disney Parks Cogsworth to go with the Lumiere. I'll probably buy Mrs. Potts and Chip eventually. I like Cogsworth better than that one though.

I finished up mine tonight. Ordered a couple of "second" ornaments for a few. Chip & Dale Glass Globe ornament/bauble sold out and so did the Parks ornament of Sven before I finally placed my order this weekend.

Also added the Coco play figurine set and the Moana. Looking forward to using the Coco set on a cake @ Halloween with my Halloween Fiesta Tablescape.

Also added the new Jim Shore Carved by Heart piece for Tangled. Love the Carved by Heart pieces he does for Disney. Looks like the new Mulan Storybook piece is already gone from the Disney site. Other new piece I want to add is the 3 Fairies. Local supply is almost nil with a minimal selection @ Hallmark and pretty much all other collectible stores in our ares are GONE.

Okay now, this is adorable:
https://www.shopdisney.com/baymax-ornament-big-hero-6-1452663

They added in some more Disney Parks ornaments.

This one's really interesting:
https://www.shopdisney.com/walt-disney-resort-railroad-ornament-1452453

Sketchbook ornaments are now $10 each.

I still have my Cars 3 code, so I'll wait and see if there will be a free shipping promo by the 19th.
