The best solution to this would be for TC members not to buy the item and to support this kind of behavior. Unfortunately somebody is going to buy it (there are already 7 offers).

So the next best solution would be to buy the item, then publish the seller's name, address, email, and phone number on TC so we could mercilessly flame the guy.

Truly, a 100% scumbag...It's because of assholes like this I waited 4 hours in line just to have my name added to a list.

Seriously, how much do you think it would have cost the Disney Company to hire the a ukulele player for five hours



Pat Enos from the Smoking Menehunes would have been glad to do it. He is one of the greatest ukelele players in California. Come see him play Friday at the Catalina Fish Kitchen in Huntington Beach, then call Disney and tell them they need him!

Someone bended and bought the fountain for $449.00....As long as people keep caving, sellers(or scalpers)will continue to supply....What a shame...That seller is laughing all the way to the bank.

Not that I'm defending the ebay seller, but to people who would have had to buy a plane ticket, accommodations, admission to the park and every other trip-related expense, $500.00 is probably a deal. (plus no waiting in line)

I guess there's no real way around that sort of practice, but it is annoying when it is at the expense of real fans... exacerbated by Disneyland's continual botching of these events.

Actually, the buyer probably had a chance to order one by phone and only pay shipping additionally, considering the level at which this event was mishandled and the actual number of fountains that are still available.

Thanks to Ken & Beth for a great dinner, yummy cocktails and the ride to Brads for my stash tonight.

Mucho kudos to Brad & Melony for fighting the crowds at D-Land to grab me some goodies (bowl, towel, bracelet) as all are fabulous. Your home in beautiful...and your collection is awesome...I am totally enamored of your kitchen TV Tiki (he wanted to come home with me you know!!!). UDAMAN Brad...delish Mai Tais. Save your energy for the 50th.

I was at the 40th Tiki Room Anniversary as well. It was actually alot smoother than this past 50th anniversary. I also attended the POTC event in 2000, and Former Disneyland President Cynthia Harris was compelled to refund the admissions to all attendees who purchased the $85/person ticket admissions. Same scenario....Line up on Main Street, view and purchase product, BUT pick it up after 3pm. That was a fiasco. Computers went down, and all orders had to be hand filled. I decided to stay at the park until close, and went to pick up my merchandise. So did about 400 other people. I left the front gates at 4:30am because of the huge mess up. But, at least they offered free drinks including coffee and free retail candy as part of a well needed apology. You would think that in 8 years of merchandise mishaps, they would have this thing nailed, but apparently people quit or move on to other positions, and leave no notes for the people taking over the events in following years. In other words, like most big businesses, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
"What we have here, is a FAILURE to commmunicate."

Anyhow, I better get a call for my fountain and NOT be charged shipping. I'll tell them to deduct it from my park admission, parking fee, and gas money.
They KNEW they didnt have all 500 fountains, and they KNEW they didn't have the 1,000LE figurine box sets. The event was led under false pretenses. Maybe as someone told me at the park, was a predetermined ploy for Disneyland to make extra money on shipping charges...You never know about those commie mousers!

And it gets better....The person that sold the first fountain now has a second one up for sale. I'll bet that person had friends to tag along to buy 4 or 6 fountains so the seller "deluxeprinters" could flip it on ebay.

That's all BS! We were about the 20th-21st people at Disneyline that morning (at 6am) and by the time they let us in there had to be 100-125 people ahead of us! Next time we're staying the night at the Grand Californian and taking two friends along! We got our names on the list for three fountains....I'll pre-sale one right now for $500! LOL!

Just went last night to Disneyana - here is what they still had on display -

Rongo Bowl - 6 left - asked the employee
Bracelets - a good amount (20+), seemed to have not been a favorite item.
T-shirt
Pitcher
Glassware
Toothpick glasses (Looking up in the disney dictionary that is - shot glasses)
Purse
Pillow - they didn't have these when we made it in, so shipments obviously still slowly coming in.
Jewelry Box - it wasn't with the bulk of the items, it was off on a shelf opposite where the bulk of the items were being shown.
A good amount of artwork, I don't know if this was a limited run, but figured I throw in the update.

I'd say keep calling delivears for updates on when they get in the remaining collector's set, since previous posts said they didn't have the amount stated that were to be produced. There was no mention from the employees on Sunday that there was a shortage, ala - The Fountain.

So that is the report from Disneyana.

Yes It was sad how they had the magic mornings and they got in 1 hour before park opening, So if you stay at the grand californian so you can get the early mornings, we called and found out you have to 3 nights in a row to get magic mornings. More money to spend. It's crazy.

The only bracelet is the green plastic bird one, the charm bracelet wasnt done in time and they dont know when it will be available. As far as the jewelry box, I believe it is the one that is on ebay, maybe type in disney or disneyland tiki room box.

Did you happen to notice if they had any more of our sterling pendants that were in the glass case in the gallery where you check out?

Thanks, Jen

I guess the box has been out for a while, which is why it wasn't listed. I'm pretty sure it was $60. I want one, but resisted... I may go back for one.

I didn't get to go back Sunday afternoon to see if any of the silver pendants were left - can you post pictures of them, if it's allowed? I think people here would be excited to see them, and the next person out there would be able to look for them.
