    ?'s about the Disney Character Outlet store

    Greetings.

    CrazyLegs posted a link to the website for the Disney outlet store the other day. http://www.ams-liquidation.com/stores.htm One is opening in my area this weekend (Western WA).

    Anyways I got a few questions.

    With the opening this weekend what can I expect for crowds? Anyone else been there when they opened?

    Is it better to wait a few days or is it best to go opening day to get the best selection?

    Do they usually open when they say? I am going to have to drive a few hours to get there and I'd hate to find them closed until the next day.

    Any general tips/advice for going?

    Anyone else heading up on Saturday? I currently plan to be there when they open and would love to meet another Micechatter.

    Thanks

    I don't have the answers to all of your questions, but I would definitely arrive early for the best selection.

    I am on the mailing list for the outlet in Fullerton/Anaheim/whatever. I just received an e-mail this morning saying they had gotten a new shipment of pins, if anyone is interested.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    I get the e-mails too - too bad I'm in Idaho and never get to go see the new stuff!

    But it does constantly change. But if it's the grand opening - go early and spend tons of money!!!!!

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Is that a request for a trip report?

    No problem. I was already planning on doing one. Yesterday was a very long day. To get to Burlington in time to be there when the store opened I had to get up at 6 am. It is several hours away. Anyways I got ready and drove to Kingston to catch the ferry at 7:50. One thing that I love about living in Washington is the views, especially on a beautiful day.



    The Olympic Mountains.



    To the south you can see Seattle, including the Space Needle.



    To the northeast. If you look close you can see snow topped Mt. Baker.

    Anyways, from Edmonds I had another hour north to drive. I got there about 9:25 in the morning and there was no one else there.



    The first people started arriving around 9:45. There were around a dozen when it opened. I headed inside and went straight for the bins of pins. They had a ton of the GOlden Vehicle COllection. I picked up a cAsey Junior and a couple Jungle Cruise. The also had Mad Tea Party, Storybookland, Mr Toad, Autotopia, and Dumbo. The had a few christmas pins and some Parade of Dreams pins. I checked out their collectibles cabinetand picked out a set of Shag drink Identifiers (those little charms one can put on the stem of their wine glass). They had tons of shirts, but the one I wanted, Sorceror Mickey on tie dye blue, they did not have in my size, only smalls and mediums. Phooey. I found some Star Tours figures and snapped them up, as well as a few shot glasses. Oops, I mean "toothpick holders". They had some of the Olszewski miniatures, which tempted me, but I do not have room to Display or the money to afford, so I skipped over them. I bought a castle wine-stopper and another set of drink charms since they were such a good deal. When I went to check out I told them I was on the mailing list and had forgotten my 10% coupon so they gave me an extra 10% off. I also got another set of drink IDs. Anyways, here's a pic of the loot.



    Another customer told me that her friend had been there yesterday (they opened early, shoot) and that they told her that they will be getting lots more stuff in a couple weeks. I may go back 1 more time before they close in October.

    It was neat to chat with all the DIsney fans. One lady was going to Disneyworld for the first tiem in a couple weeks and was buying pins to trade. Another bought a bunch of ornaments for her tree. SHe had bought some at DL for full price and was now buying more at a real cheap price.

    SO my final analysis. I got some great stuff at some incredible prices. It was worth getting up early for.
