Reflections of Evil Cel


  • Michelle, many of us are anxiously anticipating the Vera event? Have you any idea of when more info/details will be shared?

  • I have never been to a book signing at Disney and would like to know if the book can be purchased outside the park and bring it to the signing or do you have to purchase it inside the park to have it signed by Marty? Thanks for all the GREAT information.

  • I would love to get the Sofia the First doll for my daughter, do you know if this doll will be available online?

  • Is there anyplace to purchase one of these beautiful Bulova watches online?

    • Hi Anthony, unfortunately, not at this time. But I’ll keep you posted if that changes.

  • The reflection of evil animation cell is one of your best! Especially if you are into the villans. Personally I’d like to see a Tikiroom Lilo & Stitch cell. As far as watches, my favorite watches to date are my 1987 fossil watch with Walt and the shadow of Mickey on the wall, I loved the rectangular curved glass on it. It had a neat 1940’s retro feel to it.

    • I’m a fan of watches too. The one you described sounds great! I love the image of Walt with shadow Mickey, it’s definitely a favorite.

  • Hey Michelle! Thanks for all the info! I am SO glad we are coming down the last week of September now! For the Vera Bradley release event, I was wondering if you knew which door to World of Disney early lines usually form at before the event starts that morning. I am formulating my battle plan for getting there that morning 😉

    • Hey Casey! I wish I had more information to share with you, but I don’t have any of the details regarding where the queues will form, etc.

  • How do we purchase the watches if we can’t be there?

    • Hey JoAnn! A brief selection of the watches may be available to order via Disney Merchandise Guest Services, however it is just the Bulova watches you are looking at, those will only be available at the location during the 2-day event.
