Nice of you to make the offer Tiki Matt. Unfortunately (for me) my doubles are fairly lame. Nothing to excite a seasoned collector. Hope you do well.

If anyone else is able to pick up an extra from Disneyland and send to me I would really be grateful. I already checked the mouse shoppe and they don't have any of the Pele's. So I can't order one myself.
Can anyone help old 8FT get a Pele for Christmas???? PLEASE...

I know this is not supposed to be here, but I just saw one on EBAY for a buy it now of 35 bucks. It's not mine!

Hopefully someone can snag it since they tend to sell for much more normally on Ebay!

From the frigid Northeast, I'm also interested if anyone can get any of the Disney mugs.

FYI -- My husband just received a call from Disneyland 10 minutes ago that the Adventureland Bazaar received a case of Pele mugs today. Good luck if anyone is nearby the Park and wants to pick one up!

Just called Disneyland and they said they were already sold out. EBay is looking better every minute.

I was at D-Land this morning and while there's plenty of the "Chanting Tiki Room" mug - in all three colors - the Pele mugs are (once again) completely sold out. The woman I spoke with said that the same guy comes in every time they put new ones out and buys ALL of them. He doesn't 'just check on them' - she said he knows when they're in. Obviously, someone is unfairly cornering the market on this mug (a cast member with inside info, maybe?). I have an annual pass and live within an hours drive, so I can (and do) check every so often, but in the dozen times I've been there in the past few months, there's never been a single Pele mug to be found.

Sour grapes? Yeah, I suppose...

Just got mine. I put my name on the waiting list in september and they said that the next three people were put notified? What gives, if there were 168 released. They could only spare three for a waiting list that is how long?

Mr. Grinch your an evil one.

Dr. Z, why don't you call some higher up management and explain the situation. I'm sure they want their product available to park guests and would take measures to stop one person from buying all the mugs.

Might be the same person who's had a bunch of them on ebay with the $35 BIN.

The $35 BIN seems like a good deal (only $10 over retail). The person that has been posting them must be content with less than 50% profit(is my math right?). Doesn't make much sense to me.....seems they could space out the postings and make a killing. Anyway, I still have a few left if anyone wants to trade.

I'd really like to get a hold of one, don't know if I will be able to without the help of Ebay.

Argh, darn packrats.

And that same user (abragan744ufc) who has the bin for $58 has had 4 of these posted this week already (3 at the same time right now!)

Meanwhile, us Northeast tiki-freaks will wind up paying these crazy prices or going without.

Well, I for one, am sick of this ebay racketeering. Shag prints on there 1 day after they sell out for double their original cost...all things Disney (esp disney tiki) bought out from the stores and then marked up ridiculously.

No more! I'm not buying jack from these people anymore. Hopefully, some of the TC'ers will follow my lead. If there's no market for this stuff, idiots like abragan744ufc wont buy EVERY SINGLE MUG from the Disney store to re-sell.

Then, a request like the origin of this thread ("someone pick me up a pele mug") can be be easily filled by anyone with access to the park, and the kindness to do so.

Sorry for the rant...just my 2 cents.

Anyone else feeling me on this one?
