: : : I called the Disney World merchandise line again this morning, and apparently the 10" figure and tank are still in stock, but the 4" figure is out and you can be put on a waiting list if you like. Note, my operator was Lawanda(sp?), and I believe she was the same person I spoke to yesterday. Once again, she told me that the motorcycle and airplane are not in stock and they never have been. More shocking, however, is that upon further inquiry she told me that they NEVER WILL BE SOLD AT THE THEME PARKS. After asking where they would be sold, she was less certain, but seemed to guess that they would show up in retail. I don't know if she meant widespread retail, like your local Wal-Mart, or Disney Store or what. Now, if you get a different story from a different (or even the same) operator, please post it here so we can get our facts straight.
: : This morning at 9:30am KY time called (407)363-6200;
: : I ordered the 4" figure and tank set and micro set and the nice lady on the phone even found the "NEWLY ADDED"(her words)motorcycle and airplane sets. At first she said NO they didn't show the last two items but she kept looking and finally said "Oh there they are, I was wrong, they are adding new stuff all the time" I guess she was talking about her merch. list. She said ALL my items showed up as in stock and ready to ship, she even checked the backordered 10" figure and said it was ready too! I think YOU are getting bad service and bad info. I didn't get the ladies name:( that took my order but she was super nice and helpful. Try,try again, Micah. Good Luck!
: I tried again. At first I thought I was in trouble because my operator, Richard, didn't know about the motorcycle or airplane, but I got him to look on his computer, and "Lo and Behold" they were there! So, I guess the problem is that operators are working from memory and you need to get them to check the computer to be sure.
: Thanks, Jeff and M. Bartender
