Disney dealers again, now selling ATTRACTION items
It is the season to be merry and buy special gifts for loved ones in time for Christmas.
Merchandise at Disney Parks has always been a hit with kids and adults alike, with visitors able to purchase exclusive items not found anywhere else.
It now appears that online retailers are pushing the “exclusive” part too far and selling items that aren’t even for sale at Walt Disney World.
Part of the magic that comes with experiencing the Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Resort, or Disney Parks around the world is in all of the unique merchandise available. Customers can still visit shopDisney for Disney merchandise, but some products are exclusive to parks or certain events.
Since October 1, Disney has launched new collections in stores to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, but serious supply chain issues have hampered replenishment in Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney Springs.
Recently, guests have noticed an issue with resellers trying to make money through demand for exclusive items from Disney fans – and it looks like these sellers are now going beyond “reselling” to cash.
Over the summer, Disney implemented a two-item purchase limit on the resort’s inventory, but that hasn’t stopped resellers from trying to cash on demand.
Resellers are visitors who go to Disney parks and buy multiple quantities of items so that they can resell them at a higher price to others. Many use their annual discount to get a deal on their items and then take advantage of these savings, which is not allowed and stated on the Walt Disney World website as a breach of the Annual Pass contract.
Inside the Magic noticed on eBay that these Disney dealers were now selling items from the attractions themselves – items that had to be pulled from the parks to be sold.
A seller on the online shopping portal eBay has a pair of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure 3D glasses from EPCOT for sale.
Of course, these glasses are not sold at Walt Disney World and are part of the attraction itself. Guests are expected to return the 3D glasses to a bucket upon exiting the merry-go-round.
The glasses are priced at $ 19.99 and appear to have been pulled from the parks to be sold.
Another seller also has a pair of these glasses for sale at EPCOT, priced at $ 19.75.
The seller’s message is as follows:
3D glasses from Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Ride. Real, authentic 3D glasses from the new Ride at Disney World Orlando
This pair of 3D glasses was given to us by an actor after a behind-the-scenes tour of the new merry-go-round during a preview. They were only used by us and were new, unused.
It is not yet clear whether Disney is aware of these online sellers, but it seems that in recent times the Disney community is cracking down on dealers trying to make a profit by purchasing Disney merchandise.
We have reported previous cases of Disney resellers in the past with resellers listing the free Disney + Day hat and pin eBay for $ 69.99 this month.
As long as there are limited edition merchandise, there will be eBay pinball machines looking to make a profit and people who will want to buy these limited edition items, even if that means they have to wait to find them on eBay. .
