Whew! Now that you’ve made it past that rather lengthy title, I thought I’d mention that there are a lot of reasons Liesle & I enjoy visiting the park together. When we’re together though, I find I also benefit from the fact that she notices things that I would have breezed right by.
Case in point are these Precious Moments Disney Dolls, which Liesle noticed were out on display today at Epcot, right in front of the American Adventure building. They go for $49.95 apiece, and you’ll notice many Disney characters in the image above…
…and still more here. (You can click on any image for a larger view, then use your web browser’s BACK button to return to this post.)
The “piece de resistance” this year are these three limited edition dolls, representing Cinderella’s wicked stepmother and stepsisters from the more recently-released movie, which just went out on display today. The Cast Member working the display told us that they’ve received just thirty of these here at Epcot, and thirty more went to Disneyland in California.
Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
(Sheesh… Disney should pay me for writing this stuff lol…)
The Lily James version of Cinderella was also out on display, and is new this year as well. I *think* there are 300 of these available, again split between Epcot and Disneyland.
A couple of closeups here for some dress details…
Also new this year is Cinderella in her bridal dress. I didn’t catch how many of these are available.
New to the World Showcase collection this year is the Mexico doll, on the far left of the image above, and the two Italy dolls, closer to the right.
Also new is this version of the Ursula doll…
…and Goofy is new as well.
And Frozen is well represented here too (of course), although these will be retiring this year.
Linda Rick, the Dolls’ Designer, will be on hand at Epcot from 1:00-9:00pm this weekend to autograph the dolls, and again from April 1st through the 3rd.
Oh, and don’t say I never sacrificed anything for you, folks. 🙂
