Lack of ‘Frozen’ Merchandise at WDW

Lack of ‘Frozen’ Merchandise at WDW

Not much to pick from!

Disney woefully underestimated the popularity of ‘Frozen’ and especially the ‘Frozen’ merchandise. In the Epcot Norway shops, there is almost a complete lack of Frozen merchandise, although there are signs everywhere limiting you to 5 items and they even have a security guy assigned to the shop.

We wish there were 5 items to pick from!

When merchandise does come in, such as 700 stuffed Olaf snowmen, it is completely sold out within hours.

The only way to get a Princess Anna or Princess Elsa little girl’s costume at WDW is to purchase ‘The Castle Package’ at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique ($200+).

These may look like Frozen dresses, but they are Cinderella dresses!!  :(

“The unprecedented global success of Disney Animation’s phenomenal Frozen continues,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger in an earnings call. “Demand for Frozen-related merchandise remains extremely high.”

We found more ‘Frozen’ merchandise available at our local Target than at WDW!

Anna dress at Target, $19.95.

Frozen, the Oscar-winning movie that became the highest-grossing animated film of all time, was released in November, but its impact continues to be felt throughout the company.

Sales of the movie’s DVD and Blu-ray began on March 17, and, in just two days, it became Amazon.com’s best-selling children’s movie since 2001. Its soundtrack is the best-selling album in the U.S., and a Broadway production based on the movie will be launched.

Frozen accounts for nine of the 10 best-selling items at Disney stores!!
