DisneyStore Disney Princess Designer Dolls Online Sale Info and Direct Links

ALL DOLLS ARE NOW SOLD OUT.

For the unfortunate many who didn’t have the opportunity to pick up the five remaining Disney Princess Designer Doll collection that were released yesterday, I would like to take a moment to extend this gesture as a thank you for the support over the years and provide you with as much information — as well as direct links — to the dolls prior to their online sale today, especially since these dolls have the smallest edition size to date, with only 4,000 each (6,000 for Rapunzel).

Now in the interest of full disclosure, it should be noted that I do normally receive a very small percentage of DisneyStore.com sales that originate from this site and, because I normally don’t receive proper links until a day after items are put up, I would normally simply provide item numbers. However, in this case, I am making an exception, so I ask that, as soon as possible, you just click through to DisneyStore.com via the link here and that will set it up for me so I can attempt to get credit from any sales that stem from here. It won’t cost you any more than just a few seconds of your time and it helps the site out tremendously.

With that out of the way, here’s how the sale will work. A little after 11 am ET today, DisneyStore.com will close down temporarily. It will return online at (or a little after) 12 pm ET/9 am PT, at which point the online supply of dolls will be available.

Here are direct links for the remaining dolls (please try to click this DisneyStore.com link first though!):

The picture quality doesn’t appear to be that great, but considering they probably weren’t taken with consent, one has to forgive that just a little.
