New, limited edition ornament collection started up. It's nearly 4 AM here, and I'm actually wide awake with a touch of insomnia. But, whatever. https://www.shopdisney.com/jack-skelling...release-1479156

Jack Skellington and Sally is the first in the collection, and I'm a sucker for limited ornaments...plus you get an extra 25% off with DISNEYPAL for Friends & Family. Usually limited edition items do not count, so...I'm not sure if this will continue or not...we'll have to wait 'n see.

So, surprise, collectors! More ways to give Disney your money. wink

Any info on what the other ornaments will be in the collection. The only thing we know is that there will be 10.

No info yet. I've tried to see if someone had leaked info. Can't find a thing. No clue about what's coming or when. frown I would love to know, but I am grateful that this showed up with the promo and the promo worked! I just wish the promo worked on the Mickey limited ornaments. I would have bought the three I'm missing. $29.99 is too high for them. The first three, I had promo codes for $10 off $40. While it didn't take the $10 off the ornament, the ornament counted toward the $40, so in my mind, the $10 went off the ornament. I just have to wait for another code. Eventually "Solo" will be up for pre-order. Then "The Incredibles 2," so I'll get there.

In other news, I got hired to be a teacher today! I get to teach chemistry and earth science for a magnet school that specializes in performance arts and technology. This will be fun. laugh Years of working at Toys R Us and living at home since I couldn't find a job. It turned out to be a wonderful thing since my mom got cancer and I was here with her and TRU was flexible with me so I went to every chemo and radiation appointment and most of her doctor's appointments as well as going with my grandfather for some of his appointments (he got diagnosed with cancer 7 months after my mom). Everyone's passed away now, TRU's gone, and God opened the door back into teaching. Not only teaching, but a creative school which supports my creative side of bringing in the arts to support the subject. God knew my mom would need me. So, He kept me at home. Years and years of feeling like a failure, applying for lab jobs and teaching jobs only to be turned down (or, in the case of several lab jobs, they ran out of money before they could hire since the grant request failed) just kept me low in spirit wondering what was wrong with me. Then, my mom got sick, and I was grateful to work at the retail job. After she died, I had a lot to do with the estate and stuck with the retail job since it was security and a bit flexible. It served its purpose in my life. God is good. But I still mourn the loss of jobs for TRU/BRU team members. It's still a sad thing.

I'd thought of you with TRU closing. I truly can't believe it. But congrats on your great news!

And thanks for sharing about this new series. I wish I knew what else was coming. $19.95 isn't bad for an ornament, and if I like the rest, I might get this one, too....

Congrats on the new job and good for you on having such a good perspective on how things worked out during that difficult time.

I was hoping the Friends and Family code would discount the Solo set, and the Mickey Through the Years (at least a few of them) since they've been around for quite awhile, but nope. Only the newbie

I'm tempted to buy Mary Poppins and Alice in Wonderland early with the 25% off, but since they aren't enough to qualify for free shipping yet, guess I'll wait a bit.

Thank you all!

And I got my ornament today. They had a checklist inside with illustrations of the rest of the series. So, here we go for the list and these are all supposed to be anniversary ornaments according to the tag:

Mickey Mouse (created in 1928)
Mulan (1998)
The Sword in the Stone (1963)
Chip 'n Dale (created in 1943, ornament is based on a short called "Dragon Around")
The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
Peter Pan (1953)
Star Wars Return of the Jedi (1983)
Wall-E (2008)
Marvel Studios (2008)

Oh, and Jack and Sally sold out online. I still have no idea if these are being offered in stores.

The Sword in the stone, Peter Pan, Star Wars/RotJ, and Marvel sound interesting.

I put pictures up on Facebook, but here are the photos of the checklist.

Peter Pan is very nice. Star Wars is "eh." Marvel's...umm...I understand what they're doing, but it's not really my cup of tea.

I absolutely love that the Disney Store did this with that checklist inside. I was not anticipating this and was psyched to get it since I had been combing the Internet, trying to find out what the rest were, but I wish "Oliver and Company" was one of the ornaments. I hope this happens again in 1999 because I want a "Tarzan" ornament, and 1999 will be that movie's 20th anniversary.

Thanks for sharing the pictures. There are a couple I want to see the finalized versions of before I jump, but they might be coming to my home.

I've been really wanting a Sword & the Stone ornament, but would have preferred more along the likes of the British exclusive. Mulan looks beautiful. I like book ornaments so will probably get the Chip & Dale piece. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? reminds me of the ride at Disneyland. You know Wall-E is a must for me.

1999 will be the anniversary? Are you running a little behind? laugh

Late at night, sorry. I wouldn't mind going back to 1999 sometimes.

The Disneystore UK shared a post on Instagram this morning with a link to their site. A few of these ornaments have pictures.

New Legacy ornaments are in stock this morning:

Mickey Mouse - https://www.shopdisney.com/mickey-mouse-legacy-sketchbook-ornament-limited-release-1479190
Roger Rabbit and Benny - https://www.shopdisney.com/roger-rabbit-...release-1479188
Wall-E and Eve - https://www.shopdisney.com/walle-and-e-v-e-legacy-sketchbook-ornament-limited-release-1479616

I'm curious to see if these sell out fast or not. Jack Skellington and Sally are super popular, so that combined with the 25% off really helped it sell out quickly. Now is the real test... Who's it going to be first... I think Wall-E & Eve will sell out first, but that's just me.

I didn't realize this already started . . . been away for past 3 weeks. With all the release dates between Hallmark & Disney . . . I'd miss so much more than I already do IF not for reading here, so thanks to all, especially Amanda, for keeping us informed.

I use to be so much better at keeping up with everything but too many release dates have made me weary with collecting . . . so I get what I get and don't worry about what I miss these days. I use to fret about it and buy on eBay but now it is more like "eh what's one less ornament" or fill in the blank with whatever other collectible item.

p.s. Amanda, Congratulations on the new teaching position. I'm very happy for you . . . I hope you enjoy it and sounds like you will be in a good school and will be an excellent fit for their faculty.
