D23 Expo: Disney Store Anniversary Exclusives Sneak Peek
When the Disney D23 Expo comes to the Anaheim Convention Center from August 19-21, it will include a substantial presence by Disney Store, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2012 and it’s inviting all the D23 Expo attendees to join in the celebration a bit early with the opportunity to purchase items exclusively available at the Expo.
Below is a gallery of item as well as pricing and edition sizes (usually some multiple of 25) which is sure to offer something for everyone, as long as they love the color silver, and don’t mind shelling out a few bucks (anywhere from $19.95 – $2,000.00).
There are a couple of things worth noting. Although Disney Store will be releasing its set of ten Disney Princess Designer Dolls (see here for more information), the only doll available for direct purchase at the D23 Expo is the 25th Anniversary Cinderella Designer Doll, which would technically be doll number eleven. You can see the box below, which will hint at the boxes for the actual collection. It appears that the special edition Cinderella will be in a silver dress as opposed to the blue dress.
Also causing some confusion is the Disney Store 25th Anniversary 3″ Vinylmation and pin set which lists an edition size of 2,500 on the pin card but has been announced as an edition size of 500. To clarify,
the edition size is in fact 2,500 but only 500 will be available for purchase at the Disney D23 Expo. The remaining stock will be sold online at DisneyStore.com at a future date, but only to qualified D23 members. All 2,500 pieces will be available for purchase at the Expo.
Disney Store has informed us that it will be honoring its usual discounts (e.g., Cast Member, Disney Visa) but the discounts won’t be applicable to certain items.
