There's been a lot of threads related to merchandise lately, and one of the trends I've noticed is a big increase in the seasonal mechadise being offered at DL. There's been news recently about the expanded Christmas offerings including in the Court of Angels, and Andy Castro's recently featured the wide variety of Holloween items already being offered in August.It makes sense that Disney would want to do this as it will offer APs a variety of items to grab their interest each time they visit. It seems like this is part of the reason the Holloween items came out now, just in time to capitalize on the So Cal APs coming back to the parks. I guess I see both good and bad parts of this trend. On the good side, I do enjoy seeing the variety of merch and do think some of it is cool. On the other hand, it seems to further sacrifice theme, and is causing the loss of places that were not previously used for retail. So I have some questions..Do you think this is a trend, and will we see it continue to grow? Do you think it's good or bad?
