So exciting! I can't wait to have the Tiki Fountain in my Tiki Guest Bedroom.

Werid thing is I was just at Disneyland last Friday and I find it kind of werid how many of the men's limited edition Aloha shirts are left, as well as the bird bracelets. I am telling that line was so long and with only 500 made something is a bit fishy. They should of been long gone. Not only are they are the disney gallery store they are at the store in adventureland too. What are your thoughts?

Those bird bracelets were hideous only due to the China. I think the BIG black lettered "MADE IN CHINA" lamenated into the bracelet screamed "not collectible". It was like an advertisement, and should have been a removeable sticker. As far as the shirts go, I was suprised they were not sold out either, but the price was higher than the original ticketed $58 "Shag" 40th Anniversary LE shirts from five years back. Although the birds are cute, and a mainstay at the show, I just thought Amanda Visells art should have contained more tiki after the namesake of the attraction. I personally didn't buy an aloha shirt for fear of being called a "ParrotHead"..... j/k,
but it was very Jimmy Looking to me....
just my observations and opinion as to why some stuff didn't sell out.

Thanks for your input, it make total sense. Yes as you know from my previous post I too hate the made in china on the side of the bracelet. That was a very bad design flaw on their part. Although I did buy two of them to wear together and I get tons of compliments on.

Now for the shirts, the Disney shirts have been around 78 for the last couple of years, usually that wouldnt stop a collector who stayed in line for hours from buying them. It almost seems there were more made then the 500. Especialy if they go for more on ebay and people pay more than the 78. I do like the 58 price much better though.

And I wonder if the 500 LE shirts means 500 total of all sizes, or 500 of each size (so with S, M, L, XL = 2,000). I would have to figure it is 500 of each size, or else 125 of each size would mean the common sizes would be gone in a heartbeat.
