As the Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th-anniversary celebration closes in the next few months, Disney has begun to provide discounts to get rid of select merchandise to prepare for The Walt Disney Company’s 100th-anniversary line.
During the year-and-a-half-long 50th-anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World, the Resorts and Theme Parks have offered Guests a special selection of unique merchandise for fans of Disney to celebrate the historic occasion.
As with any seasonal-specific item offering, Disney can sometimes not sell out all the inventory they order to be displayed on shelves. For this year’s Black Friday shopping spree, Walt Disney World provided Guests with limited discounts that have marked down select merchandise to clear the shelves for its next truckload of souvenirs.
For Disney fans holding out for a special sale on Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary merchandise, it seemed as if Black Friday and Cyber Monday were the right time to go on a shopping spree. However, it looks like some of the special discounts have been extended, and Disney has been unable to sell as much as they anticipated.
To our surprise, the Walt Disney World Resort has yet to be sold out of the 50th-anniversary celebration Monorail Station and Cinderella Castle sets despite the 40% discount. The special discounted items have been available for weeks now and are just not flying off the shelves as most likely anticipated. It is not known if Disney just overordered these items or if Resort Guests are just not able to afford the toys due to the rising costs being felt throughout the Theme Parks.
Despite the extended sale, if you are a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, shoppers also receive 15% off the markdown price. At an original retail price of $124.99, you could walk out with a set for as low as $60.00 if you are eligible for every discount.
The Monorail Set and Cinderalla’s Castle are great gifts for any fan of Disney, and at that much of a bargain, who doesn’t mind saving a few bucks?
