Will there be prints of any of the Iron Man or Star Wars art?
Hey Marie! They will actually have paper and giclee formats for most of the pieces available.
Hello. I have questions about two of the events you listed here. First, for the Precious Moments doll event, is there any way to order those Little Mermaid dolls if I can’t attend the event?
My second question is about the Noah event on May 18th. In the event page you provided the link for, it lists “pint size prints” and “treasure boxes” as being available at the event. Can you elaborate on what exactly these are? Also, will there be giclees available at this event and if not, will they be available for these new pieces at a future date? And if I can’t attend the event, is there a way to order some of the items from this event? Thanks for your help.
Unfortunately there isn’t any way to order the dolls, unless you attend, as she often brings down a large selection of different dolls, styles, etc.
As for your other questions about Noah’s pieces. We will in fact have giclees available for each of these images, as well as deluxe prints. I was actually just told the pint size prints and the treasure boxes will not be available for the event, so I’ll make sure to update the website. If you aren’t able to attend the event, I would recommend calling our Disney Merchandise Guest Services number at 1-800-560-6477 the Monday following the event, to inquire about remaining merchandise.
On May 4, will the Star Wars art be available earlier in the day before the signing? I’ll have to leave the resort by noon to catch a flight home.
Duane, good news! It looks like D Street will be opening early that day around 8a.m. or so. So they will definitely be available to purchase prior to the signing. Hope you can make it.
