    ABC Merchandise at DL or DCA???

    With so many hit TV shows now, I can't believe that they are not trying to sell LOST, Desperate Housewives, or Grey's Anatomy merchandise at the parks, especially DCA.

    I see they have all sorts of merchandise at ABC.com and would think this would fit in nicely in the Hollywood Back lot section. I have a lot of friends that are fans of LOST and thought that DCA would have something that I could buy as a Christmas gift, but all they had was the DVD.

    Maybe they do have it and I am looking in the wrong place. Has anyone else tried to buy merchandise from their new shows? I think Disney is missing an opportunity there.

    I saw Desperate Housewives shirts at Star Trader a few weeks ago. But I haven't seen any of the other shows.
    Take Care,

    I think DCA and DTD would be ok places to sell ABC merch. Not DL.
    You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.

    Re: ABC Merchandise at DL or DCA???

    I think that the best fit for ABC merchandise would be in the DTD extention they are planning... Unless you do something radical like use a sound stage as a live sound stage and actually have a tv show taped from the sound stage where Millionare used to be...

    This of course is not unprecedented... I am thinking of what goes on with the Tonight Show at Universal Studios... Such a move would draw more people into DCA...

    The question is does ABC have something that is Tonight Show calaber that could go in there? (And don't dare think of moving Regis... I think that is out of the question... Jimmy Kimmel is a joke...)

    Yeah, ABC selling merchandise at DLR isn't a bad thing, but I don't think if belongs in DL or DCA. DTD would be OK in my opinion but no further. Someone mentioned the expansion of DTD, what's up with that? I've always wondered why ABC didn't have some kind of shop or at least cart in DTD.

    Seen some Desperate Houswives stuff at DCA in the Off the Page Store in the Hollywood Backlot, but that's about it. Curious about the statement of DTD extension also....any infomation on that? Haven't heard about that one yet.

    Re: ABC Merchandise at DL or DCA???

    During our Thanksgiving trip we saw Desp 'wives shirts and a book for sale in the shop on Main St that also sells the "trail rides" shirt and jackets. Seemed to fit right in...

    USH had a bunch of DH stuff.

    Re: ABC Merchandise at DL or DCA???

    I think the new "Studio Store" in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot would be the only appropriate place to sell any such merchandise - although, I havent seen how the inside of that shop is themed, if it is at all since the outside/signage isnt too impressive. However, I did see extremely out of place Desperate Housewives merchandise in Star Traders on my Dec. 17 trip. Didn't see much of anything else, but I didn't stop in as many stores like I usually do since I was with a crowd who hadn't been to Disneyland in 2 or 3 years.

    They should open an ABC store in Downtown Disney with maybe a rotating exhibit of props from ABC, Disney Channel or Walt Disney Pictures most popular shows/movies/etc. Anybody know when that DTD expansion is set to start - or is it even going to happen?

    They are. I've seen them all over the place.

    With all this talk of "off the shelf" and "on the back-burner" it seems the only thing that DCA is really missing is the kitchen sink!

    I too have seen the Desperate Housewives t-shirt at Star Traders (which I did think was out of place just because it was there in the midst of regular stuff), but I haven't seen anything else. What have you seen and where?
