I am interested in the new “Boo-tifil you”-2016 Precious Moments doll collection. The little which with braid and witches hat shown on left picture above. Could you tell me when I may be able to purchase it as I live in California. @nana
@JoEllen – Please see this article about merchandise events at Disneyland Resort. It will give details about the release of the Precious Moments dolls at World of Disney in mid-October: https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2016/09/october-2016-disneyland-resort-merchandise-events/
I’m glad the Hatbox Ghost is not a limited edition. How about the Mr. Toad print? Do you think I’ll be able to buy both during my WDW trip in the second week of November?
@Marcel – The prints should be available at the WonderGround Gallery in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs Marketplace.
I can’t tell: which artist did the Dumbo, Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan, and Mr. Toad pieces? Will those be available online?
@Shane – Dave Perillo created that artwork. I’m unsure if they will be carried on the Disney Parks online store. Dave will be meeting with guests at WonderGround Gallery at the Marketplace Co-Op in Disney Springs from October 21-23.
Will the Hat Box Ghost only be available at Disney Springs during his visit or will it be available at Disneyland as well?
@Darlene – Guests may find the Hatbox Ghost tomorrow at Disney Springs. The figure will also be released at Disneyland Resort in the coming weeks.
PLEASE tell me the Hatbox Ghost Jim Shore will be available eventually on the Shop Disney Parks app?!
@Alisha – I’ve not received an update as to when it may appear on Shop Disney Parks app. I know the item is not limited edition.
