  • I just preordered the Tinkerbell figurine and I have a question. I am an Annual Passholder and I uploaded a picture of the front and back of my passholder card. Is that all I am suppose to do or was I suppose to upload my Drivers License as well?

  • Nevermind about the previous comment. If you type in the url by hand it works.

  • The link to preorder the Tinkerbell Precious Moments ornament doesn’t work. Is there an updated url or a phone number? Thanks so much for the help!

  • @Steven – Thanks for the tip on the Small World Dooneys! I truly appreciate your coming back to a thread to answer our questions, and I know I’m not the only one. Have a Magical Day!

    • @Trinna – My pleasure! I love comments from Disney Parks Blog readers. Thank you for reading the stories.

  • Steven,
    Thanks for the link!! I just went out and ordered. I love the merchandise updates you do.

    • @Lois – You’re welcome. I’m glad you were able to order them. I appreciate the kind words. Writing for the Disney Parks Blog has been fun for me so I’m happy to hear you enjoy the articles.

  • We need a Goofy Dooney!!!!!

  • In the past you could preorder the Precious Moments and have them signed. Is this available for the August release? If so what are the details please. Unfortunately I will be home from our vacation at that time.

  • Is there a release date for the Dumbo Dooney & Bourke?

    • @Lori – Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog as I’ll have an article with details.

  • So many great events! But for those of us who weren’t able to attend the recent Disney Dooney event, any word on when the Small World Dooneys will be available online?
