World of Disney Summer Sale 2011

I went to the World of Disney Sale last Saturday with my fiance and we had a good experience!  I think the summer sale is the one to go to because the people seem less aggressive than the Christmas shoppers at the winter sale.  The line looked really long when we got there at 6am but the it moved much faster than it did when we went last year.  We got into the store after about an hour and there was still quite a bit of stuff left.  They were out of the Vinylmation that was on clearance but there was still a few other things that we ended up getting!
When we walked into the store they handed us each a garbage bag.  They did that at the last summer sale and I absolutely love it.  It makes me feel like I'm going on a crazy shopping spree at my favorite store.
My favorite items that I purchased were two Jim Shore Disney Traditions ceramic figures.  I'm not a collector of the Jim Shore items but there have always been these two that I really liked at Off the Page in California Adventure and lucky for me they were the two at the sale!  I bought them both!

On sale for only $12.48

On sale for $17.48

At the sale they also had an assortment of clothes that were discounted.  It was after I'd grabbed a few things that my fiance pointed out that there seemed to be a lack of men's clothing on clearance.  He was right!  There were many clothes for women to pick from but not much for men.  I picked these up while I was looking around but ended up leaving them when it came time to try to cut down on what I was going to purchase.  They were both 50% off which was a great deal but sadly I had to leave something out of my bag.

Most of the doorbuster deals were gone when we got in the store but there were a couple things that we were able to get, Mickey and Friends Character Bandz and some Kooky pens that were marked down to $2-$3 each.

$3 each

$2 each!

We also found these colorful stuffed animals for $4 each that we may somehow try to use for our wedding reception.

Finally, I was surprised to find that they had a large assortment of Duffy the Disney Bear merchandise that were all 25% off.
The display was a little sad to me to see all these Duffys in large boxes in the store. I found myself wanting to give them all a big bear hug!

I felt better however when I saw a happy looking couple walking back to the parking lot with two giant bags full of large Duffys!  It was such a fun sight to see!
We ended up getting an outfit for the Duffy we have at home and a 2011 Duffy that I had wanted to purchase since 2011 is a significant year for us!

We waited about 15 minutes in line to make our purchases which wasn't nearly as bad a wait as the last two sales we'd been to.  The whole sale seemed more organized and all the cast members were very pleasant which I found really impressive considering the large crowd they were helping! I love that we get our annual pass discount on top of the sale prices!  On the way out they handed us fans advertising the D23 Expo that is coming up in August!

We finished our shopping experience around 9am and had a really good time!  I was really happy with my purchases.  We had to get up really early to go to it but the great thing about the Disney sale is there's so many fun things you could do after the sale.  We chose to go to the Grand Californian and pick up some Mickey Waffles on the way home. Yum!  This year's summer sale was great!  I hope to go again next year!

World of Disney Summer Sizzling Sale!

It's time for the big summer sale at World of Disney!  I went last year and got a lot of great stuff!  I also went to the sale at winter but didn't have as much luck.  The store was pretty wiped out by the time I got in there but I think the crowd was worse then because it was full of so many people shopping for Christmas.  My summer sale experience was much better so I'm hoping this year's summer sale will be as great as the last one!
The sale is open to Annual Passholders, D23 Members, Club 33 Members, or Disney Vacation Club Members. It starts bright and early this Saturday, July 23rd, 2011 at 6:30am and goes until 9:00am.  The line can get pretty long (I waited two hours for the winter sale) so it's good to be there early and be ready to wait!  If you manage to get in early enough you can get some really great priced Disney merchandise with discounts up to 50% off and doorbusters.

Phineas and Ferb's Rockin' Rollin' Dance Party

Phineas and Ferb are now at California Adventure!  As a big fan of their TV show, I was thrilled to see them at the park!
You can see them near Ariel's Undersea Adventure in their show Phineas and Ferb's Rockin' Rollin' Dance Party.  During the show you get to dance along with Phineas and Ferb to tunes from their television show!

Hey, where's Perry?

Phinedroids and Ferbots!

A couple Fireside Girls were there too!


Here's some video of the show!
