    What happens to merchandise after a promotion?

    I was wondering that after specific promotions like Find Stitch, Halloween, Christmas Fantasy, etc what happens to the logo merchandise. I was there a few days after Halloween last year & everything was gone. I understand that once a promotion is over, there's no real need for the merchandise, but is there a place they send it to put it on sale or is it just that popular that everything sells out by the end of the program.

    I saw a few sale items last year on generic merchandise that probably was no longer being made like some Braviseamo stuff and a few other things from Mermaid Lagoon and some plush.

    In the US parks most of holiday merchandise is put on sale and usually available several weeks or months after it, or it is shipped out to outlets.

    For the Tokyo parks, unsold themed or seasonal items with dates like "Christmas Fantasy 2006" are sold at cost in the CM shop backstage. If it doesn't sell within 6 months or so, it is given away to CM's. If there is huge stock remaining, it gets destroyed.

    Re: What happens to merchandise after a promotion?

    I figured as much, I usually have to rely on ebay to get the things I want since I can't go to TDL as often as I'd like to.

    It would be neat if there were outlet centers out there as well, like they have in Florida & California-

    If it's left over, it's just money they're throwing away- I know they made a lot of money on it during the promotion, but just giving it away or dumping it - then they probably don't need the extra cash they can make on it.

    It is great for the cast members though who really deserve it for all of their outstanding efforts and guest service they give. But unlucky for us collectors who can't go to TDR often.
