We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

I love the Mickey's Grand Hotel stuff at the Disney Store. Kinda "meh" on Disney Sweet Love this year, not that I usually buy much non-Duffy merchandise anyway. Another week til that update comes!
I'm ready for more details about the 30th as well. I really don't love the title/concept art yet, so I'm still waiting for that "gotcha" moment... It would be great if they do that popcorn flavor contest they had planned for TDS's 10th!...but who knows???
Merchandise is now available! Check out DeepDisney for pictures.
About what I was expecting. I see a few items I might like. Pluto and Fifi don't seem to have one single piece of merchandise to themselves though, just their art plastered on a few items. Kinda disappointing.
MD now has the merch on their regular site. No earphone jack cover? Bummer. Was hoping for the cups.
Valentines merch is now out at Disney Store. Here's a preview. (not on the official site yet) OMG, that Mike chocolate figure is so cute!! Look at the detail, looks good enough to eat. Sounds like he's a piggy bank with fake chocolate money included. Now that is unique. Who cares about Tokyo Disneyland now. Can't wait to see what else they have!
