    Olszewski - Disney Dream Ship

    ADMIN NOTE: I've moved some posts out of the WDW 40th Anniversary Haunted Mansion event thread because they really deserve a spot of their own.

    Olszewski to release the Disney Dream Cruise Ship

    Curse you, Disney!
    So I shouldn't show you his photo of the Disney Dream/Fantasy Cruise Ship?

    I wish I knew. It can't be inexpensive though.

    I got an e-mail from Travis. He didn't say how much it would cost, but he said they would be sold ONLY on the Disney Dream this winter.

    Well, given I am not taking any cruises in the future, that's a load off. But then again, did Disney not say they would be experimenting with offering exclusive cruise merchandise elsewhere? Guess it depends on how sales on-ship go and what demand is like.

    Lucky for me, I'll be on the Dream with a whole crew of MiceChatters in October. I'll bring money and save room in the suitcase. Can't imagine not coming home with that beautiful piece!

    Re: Olszewski - Disney Dream Ship

    This really seems like an odd move by Disney to only sell it on the ship, when it seems there are Olszewski collectors elsewhere as well, unless this is deemed to be a "limited edition". If the idea is to sell as many as they can, this makes no sense. Why doesn't Disney want my $200? It's not like someone will chose to take the cruise just to get the piece, so this doesn't drive business in any way. The rest of us will have to watch ebay for a reasonable price, in which case Disney still gets their money (maybe that's why they don't care) and someone else makes money too.

    I think their goal is just to have unique exclusive merchandise on the ship, rather than just to sell as many as possible.

    Eventually, when they start to bring newer merchandise in, we may see these move to the parks or Disney Shopping (or even Character Warehouse).

    Re: Olszewski - Disney Dream Ship

    Well, my understanding is Olzsewski did always want to keep the pieces exclusive to their locations (Disneyland to Disneyland, WDW to WDW), so it only makes sense that they would want to do the same for the ships. It's a shame, since I'd love one, but me being me, I'd want all four since Magic, Dream, Wonder and Fantasy will all have unique looks.

    But aren't they selling WDW pieces at Disneyland now? If so, that defeats the whole "exclusivity" issue.

    Exactly. We'll see about the ships. Initially, they may be exclusive, but given time and demand, I would think they'd be on sale at WDW at least. If Bob ever does the Magic or whatever cruise ships are repositioned to the West Coast, they may be available at Disneyland.

    Re: Olszewski - Disney Dream Ship

    I can see the "exclusive to a location" thing, but you can usually still order for delivery to your home. I'll have to look into whether or not Cruise items can be ordered somewhere. We did the Western Caribbean Disney cruise in Dec 2008 and loved it, but it was likely a one-time shot for us. Wouldn't trade it for anything though--an amazing trip that we'll remember forever.
