FRIENDLY REMINDER 

-Starting August 20th (which, yes, means as soon as it hits 12AMPST) through September 9th, the Disney Villains Designer Collection begins selling all six of the dolls in a set, ONLINE, for pre-order. This will be the only opportunity to guarantee a purchase of all six dolls. Meaning, if you want four out of six of the dolls, just get all six and trade/sell/give away the ones you don’t want. You will save yourself a lot of drama, trust me. -This is a limited set they’re selling, a number I haven’t been able to find, but it could be anywhere from 1000 sets to 100 sets ryn1690 has informed me tht number is 700. They will NOT be sold in stores on Monday. This is an online-exclusive opportunity. I’m hoping it’s not as bad as it was with the princesses, but the biggest tip I can give you is LOG IN TO EVERYTHING AHEAD OF TIME. Make sure you’re logged in to your account at Disneystore.com, and have all your credit card/paypal/shipping information already stored (especially if you’re sending it to someone else). You want to be to able to click buttons throughout this process and not enter in anything except maybe a password. Every second counts, and that’s if they’re not having server issues this time around.EDIT: Gift cards! They are allowed to be used, but you might run in to problems when it asks ‘enter numbers only’. I heard of this problem last year, so maybe they’ve fixed it now, but it ispossible for your card to be applied retroactively and that you can still secure a doll if things get crazy. Just call to make sure your order went through.-I’m not sure if there’s going to be some type of discount for getting all six in a set, but if they’re sold at the retail price of one doll times six, you’re looking at $480 + shipping/handling.-Your set will arrive on or around October 15th, which will be after each one is sold individually in September.

In my opinion, if you REALLY want to avoid the madness of Dollmageddon. This may be the way, but also the  most expensive way. 
Anyways, it looks like we’re heading into Dollmageddon 2012 pretty soon. Might mean the non-doll merchandise might be hitting the Disney Store in the upcoming week or so. So keep an eye put for them.

New information on Disney Designer Villain Dolls and I’m worrying.

Disney Store:

To our valued Guests,

Limited to just 13,000 of each doll worldwide, the Disney Villains Designer Collection will be released one per week, in stores on Monday beginning September 10 and online on Tuesdays beginning September 11.

Because we anticipate a devilishly high demand for the Disney Villains Designer Collection dolls, each participating Disney Store location will select Guests at random who will be able to purchase a doll.


*praying for the people going in stores getting the dolls*

Well…… it looks like Dollmageddon 2012 is going to be SOMETHING.

~Jessica

Being a fan of both Sephora and Disney Princess this makes me feel super excited! Yay for expensive makeup featuring Disney Princess characters! 

Let’s hope that Rapunzel will be part of the makeup line *fingers crosses*

Royal Watchers to Welcome the Newest Disney Princess

This has certainly been the year for royal hoopla … the world watched as a real-life prince and princess began their own “happily ever after,” preparations for the Queen’s 2012 Diamond Jubilee are underway, and London’s suddenly abuzz over a star-studded celebration no one wants to miss. On October 2, millions will clamor to catch a glimpse of the newest Disney Princess – Rapunzel – at her official coronation ceremony in Kensington Palace, the home of kings, queens, and many a crowned head!Becoming the tenth member of the Disney Princess royal court is no small feat – Rapunzel’s joining the company of luminaries like Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan,Pocahontas, Snow White, and Tiana. Each Princess imparts a unique message that inspires young girls to tap into unlimited imagination and follow their dreams. And Rapunzel is no different – even though she has no idea she’s actually a princess for most of her story!Audiences fell in love with her spunk when Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 50th animated film, “Tangled,” hit theaters last November. Adapted from the original fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, this spirited modern heroine (voiced by actress Mandy Moore) wiles away her lonely life with art, books, and a wide-eyed curiosity about life beyond the tower walls – until she meets Flynn Rider. Their ensuing adventure tests Rapunzel’s strength, courage, and 70 feet of magical hair, all of which come in handy when she’s finally free from the overprotective clutches of Mother Gothel. As the two ride off into the sunset, it’s easy to see how she appeals to fans young and old.Pulling out all the stops for a coronation party of this proportion is no small task. All nine current Disney Princesses will be in attendance to honor Rapunzel – along with celebrities, real royal family members from throughout Europe, little princesses-to-be, and perhaps Flynn Rider himself (AKA Eugene) – so the event’s setting has to be perfectly regal. But where?With its proclivity for everything pomp and circumstance, London, UK, seemed like the natural choice for this first-ever event. Disney selected Kensington Palace for its spectacle, beauty, and majesty – it’s been a residence of the British Royal Family since the 17th century! The Walt Disney Company will host the festivities in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces, an independent charity that helps people understand how monarchs and other royals have helped shape society – in some of the world’s most exquisite palaces.Along with the welcoming ceremony, there will be a procession through Hyde Park as well as party activities. Fans in the London area are invited to attend the procession for free (no ticket necessary), and Americans can participate in something a bit closer to home. Now through October 4, Disney Princess is sponsoring “Your Princess Moment,” a contest where girls 12 and under can submit a video of themselves doing “princess-y” things – singing, dancing, dressing up, or re-enacting their fave movie scene – for the chance to win Princess-related prizes.Once inducted onto the echelon of Disney Princesses, Rapunzel will permanently don her jeweled tiara (previously stolen by Flynn!) and be seen wherever her fellow Princesses appear. Stay tuned to DisneyPrincess.com for more details on Rapunzel’s big day!Here are a few royally fun facts you may not have known … • Princess (and later Queen) Victoria was actually born at Kensington Palace in 1819. One of its best-known residents in recent years was Diana, Princess of Wales. • Mother Gothel is the German term for “godmother.” • Rapunzel’s Tower can be seen in a railroad scene at the German Pavilion in Epcot. • There’s a life-sized statue of Rapunzel in her tower at the Old Dresden Market in Saxon, Germany. • The Brothers Grimm first published the original “Rapunzel” in 1812. • “Tangled” directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard first became interested in animation after visiting Disney’s Animation Studio at Walt Disney World Resort. • Special software was created to simulate hair movement because no one had ever animated that much hair before. • During the film’s dazzling, lantern-filled skyline scene, each lantern featured its own animated fire that contained 10,000 micro points of light. The highest lantern count in a shot is 46,000 lanterns, which equals 460 million points of light! • “Tangled” animation supervisor Glen Keane’s real-life daughter, artist Claire Keane, was responsible for designing and painting the storytelling mural that adorns the walls of Rapunzel’s tower home. • In the film’s final scene, 23 million gallons of virtual CGI water were released in the collapse of the dam!

Rapunzel’s Royal Celebration!

fuckyeahtangled:

“Disney will officially welcome Rapunzel as the 10th Disney Princess character at a high profile, star-studded celebration, to take place in front of a global audience on Oct. 2, 2011. Little princesses from across the globe will watch Rapunzel be welcomed into the Disney Princess royal court by Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas, Snow White and Tiana. In a world first, Kensington Palace, London, UK, was chosen by Disney as the perfect location for this magical welcoming ceremony of a Disney Princess, as it has been the home of many real life princesses over the centuries.

Fans in the London area are invited to join the event!

There will be a Disney Princess procession through Kensington Gardens which everyone can attend for free and without a ticket. More information about that will be posted to disney.co.uk as it’s available.”
