Just an observation:
But the emphasis on acquiring merchandise here seems to be bordering on the obsessive (hoarding).





Ha!! Ya think?

I thought the Dole Whip sippers were limited to 500 & when they are gone, they are gone. and they are gone...

AbeLugo- yes, basically, that is the gist. Next time, I'd split the $85 with someone and just have them buy the mugs for me instead of paying the entire $85 for just myself.

So if I'm reading this correctly the 85.00 got you in to buy stuff without to buy a park ticket? I really didn't get that from the original Disney website (had a few things planned already anyhow. I may have gone then, o well, maybe in ten years or 5 at that! I actually like the gallery poster in the link posted in the last page. I got most of what I wanted through mail order.

Event was fine. Decore was fun. The panel discussions were great, even though it was the same line-up of speakers all three times. But Rollie and Bob were entertaining enough for the two times I sat through the panels (hearing some different stories,etc.) The event was very pin-trader centric. They had a bunch of silent auctions, but EVERYTHING was pins. I thought they might have some Kidney/Daily exclusives or other artist works, or even pieces of the decor made specifically for this 50th event that can't really be re-used. But, alas, only pic packages up for auction.

The highlight, aside from some cool merch, was getting to meet artists in person. Everyone was enthusiastic and warm and for the most part there for the entire day.

For those of us without Park passes and limited availability to spend a day in the Park, the $85 was a fair trade off in order to pick up the merch we wanted to buy, and to be able to get seemingly anything we wanted without having to get into the Park. Even some of the mugs, bowls, etc were already pre-signed, so there was no "Sophie's Choice" about which items to have the artists sign (they only signed two pieces per person, during the signing.)

My regret - I still can't get my hands on one of those souvenir sipper "mugs" they sold pineapple juice in at the Dole Juice Bar at the Tiki Room last weekend. I haven't even seen any show up on ebay! ; )

I think you're right. Though, it sort of suprises me that Disney would order only 500. Ever. Honestly, I think it's a neat thing they could sell at the Juice Bar year-round. Hoping they get more in later seeing how quickly this batch went. But, who knows.
I'm just shocked NONE have shown up on ebay...especially seeing how much of the Tiki Room 50th merch has.

As the King of Disneyland, I have it on good authority that they will be available later on at Trader Sam's.

The same plastic sippers will be at Trader Sam's? How can they be limited edition and then make more? I'm not complaining, since I missed out and I would like one too... I did see one that sold on eBay for $35. I'm shocked that I haven't seen more...

I went to get Dole Whip yesterday and was told by an employee they would get more, no specifics though, about as vague as the "2 weeks" I got regarding the ETR mugs but at least it's something.

Fwiw I was also told the Trader Sams line though when I went there they knew what I was talking about but said they had never gotten it. Perhaps signals got crossed and there's truth to that? We'll see when we see I guess

Also they had Shag shirts if anyone's interested. Honestly I would say if you live anywhere near Disney or follow the merchandise line, hold off on getting hosed via ebay for now

I went to Disneyland yesterday & the Disneyana Gallery had everything in stock except the 2 mugs & the coasters. And for those pin fans, Westward Ho had all the tiki room pins still for sale except the Shag & Dole Whip pins. Disneyana should get more in soon!

If you did not get to the Enchanted Tiki Room 50th Anniversary and see Rolly Crump, you have 2 chances in July to meet the Disney legend and Enchanted Tiki Room artist and carver.

Along with co-author Jeff Heimbuch, he will be signing copies of his book,
It's Kind of a Cute Story, at...

Disneyana Collectible Expo at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Garden Grove, Ca. Sunday July 14th and

The Walt Disney Family Museum in San Fransisco, CA Saturday July 20th.

Cargo & Joe Banks,
Thanks for sharing your info. Very interesting should those show up at Trader's, but good to hear the rumors that more are on the way...eventually...somewhere... ; ) Like yo usaid, we'll see when we see.

I'll put my ear to the ground with a few of my sources now that I'm back in full swing and see what the rumor consensus is.

I would think that the sippers would be used in the pool area. Plenty of soaking wet people wander into Trader Sam's wanting an adult beverage.
Disney is the land of limited editions in the thousands. I've seen their merchandise with limited editions of 5000 and even 10,000.

I got flustered and bought a couple of things on ebay, but they are the ones you can only get if you went to the event, I really wanted the Shag Toucan print and the event Tiki Coffee mug. If anyone is interested I have the extra thing I don't needavailable in the marketplace.
Theya re just the journal, bottle opener, pin, original ticket art printed on wood, and the event lanyard or ticket.

Tiki Room merchandise that was out at Disneyland has made its way to Walt Disney World. Available at the Epcot location of the Art of Disney store.

MiceAge: Dateline Walt Disney World

You need to scroll down a bit to see photos of the stuff.
