Walt Disney World Resort has announced a special merchandise event for Annual Passholders from September 20 to September 23, 2023, taking place at the AdventHealth Arena within the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The event will be open daily from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Highlights of the Event

  • Exclusive Merchandise: Passholders will have early access to newly released trading pins and Pandora charms such as EPCOT Reimagined, Journey to Imagination with Figment, Minnie Mouse Bride, and Grogu Rose Gold.
  • Special Pandora Charm: A unique charm will be available only for Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholders.
  • Discounts: The event will feature 60% off on select merchandise, including certain apparel, 50th Anniversary goods, Loungefly items, and Dooney & Bourke fashions.
  • Photo Opportunities: Special photo ops will be available to commemorate the event.
  • Food and Beverage: A range of special food and beverage offerings will also be available for purchase.

A virtual queue will be in place for this event. Passholders will need to use the My Disney Experience app to join the virtual queue; a standby queue will not be available.

Here's how it works:

  • You can request to join the virtual queue for this event starting at 8:00 am on the day of the event.
  • You do not need to be at Walt Disney World Resort to join the virtual queue.
  • Once your group is called, you’ll have up to 2 hours to check in at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. This merchandise event ends at 7:00 pm, so be sure to allow enough time for you to shop.

An eligible, activated Annual Pass is required to attend. You must show your Annual Pass card, MagicMobile pass, MagicBand or MagicBand+—along with valid photo identification—when checking in. Everyone in your party must be an Annual Passholder and be included in your virtual queue group to attend this merchandise event. Any discounts are for personal use only and may not be used to purchase merchandise with the intent to resell the merchandise; not valid on certain items and may not be combined with any other discount, offer or promotion and subject to change without notice.

Didn't want 1 especially when they thought they could sell them for $99......went from $99 to $8

With passholders you've got two groups here: The ones that know better and the flippers. In this case, it seems like even the flippers knew better.

They don't talk about it.

I'm pretty sure that wasn't originally 99 dollars, though.

I think it’s this - the suitcase version: https://www.ebay.com/itm/385662418871?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=51itdsswsow&sssrc=4429486&ssuid=-QGezlT9TF6&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

There is actually way more than in the pictures. They have palets and palets of merchandise stacked up.

Sadly for Disney, one song ≠ whole movie.

Pretty good Photoshopping there by Steve. Everyone knows Encanto is a massive cultural phenomenon that moves merchandise like crazy.

😬 "Limit 2"? Looks like people didn't even want one

It makes total sense to me. "Bargain prices! Everything must go!"

MrPromey11 days ago

That can't possibly be true. Just look at all those Mirabel Dolls!

I read the event description as they are trying to sell all the stuff they haven't been able to sell anywhere else. I could be wrong.
