Earlier today, the official Disney Parks blog offered a first look at some of the new merchandise that will be available aboard the Disney Cruise Line Disney Fantasy for her Maiden Voyage and Inaugural Voyage Season. We are now pleased to bring you a first look at the limited edition items that will be available only to those sailing on the maiden voyage.
Because each of the items are limited edition, there are less of them than there are passengers, so the items are available via a Random Selection Process (RSP) in which guests can list their preferred items on a list and the items are then randomly awarded to those who want them. If there are still items left over, it then gets awarded to those who asked for it on a second and (subsequently) a third list. On the Disney Dream, much of the merchandise went unrequested so it was even available for sale upon request aboard the ship, and some merchandise was even available on following sailings.
Pictured above (not to scale) are the Robert Olszewski light-up Disney Fantasy miniature (measures 13″ in length). It’s limited to 100 pieces and retails for $295 and will be hand-signed by Olszewski. Also pictured are the vinylmation figures: a 9″ Disney Fantasy figure with a limited edition size of 750 pieces and a retail cost of $49.95 and the set of two 3″ and one 1 1/2″ vinylmation set paying tribute to the Minnie statue in the ship’s atrium, limited to a whopping 2500 pieces and retails for $39.95 (in contrast, the set for Admiral Donald on the Disney Dream was limited to 1,000 pieces and sold for $25).
There appear to be less of the more exotic items for the Disney Fantasy than the Dream (no crystal sculpture for example), but there are definitely standouts. For example, the ear hat is actually a set of two, one themed to Mickey and one to Minnie, with an edition size of 500 and a pricetag of $74.95. Also of note is the most expensive item on the list, a ‘limited release’ 14K gold and diamond (.24 carat total weight) with an 18″ chain, yours for just $4100.
