Sooo… the Shop Disney Parks app is saying that all kinds of mystery boxes are sold out in WDW (like only 19 of the 64 are showing in stock). Just curious if that’s accurate..? Any locals want to confirm or deny the mystery pins available in the stores? It’s not really effecting me right now but that seems really odd and kinda foreboding if true…
I still see tons of different sets at WDW. Even some that I thought were sold out or discounted months ago pop up every once in a while. If there’s any specifically you’re looking for I can check this weekend if I head out to the parks.
I just checked to confirm… …very odd. Rather than remove them from inventory, they’ve kept several year old sets in the database. The search results are in order of availability, with all the out of stock still listed at the very bottom. The reason this is odd is because typically out of stock items won’t show up at all. If you’re collecting a set of something, it’s not odd that one piece will be missing from the results. I once decided I wanted to buy ALL of the Alice tea party cup mugs, but only 3 of the 4 showed up. Went to the parks, and only those 3 were being sold. After about a month of checking, the 4th reappeared on the search results. This was an item they were carrying for about 3 years, and this was during its first year. So, why remove something you plan on continuing to carry, and not remove something you don’t.
Update: Just looked for anything Oswald. Everything it pulled up using that for a keyword turned up In Store Only, and all were out of stock. I sincerely doubt there being a run on Oswald rabbit ears. Something is broken internally. No idea when things will be fixed.
