If you are starting to put together your holiday shopping list then you may want to browse through a few online stores that offer Disney merchandise to get some ideas. There are three Disney Company owned online stores that I have personally used to find quality Disney items at great prices. These sites are DisneyShopping.com, DisneyAuctions.com, and DisneyOutlet.com.
The first Disney store that I found was DisneyShopping.com. It used to be called the DisneyStore.com, and you can still find it under this web address. This online store offers the same products that are offered in Disney Stores, however, they also offer special merchandise that you can only get online. One of the best things about using this online Disney store is that they offer a lot of great free offers. For example with pre-orders for special Disney DVD releases they often offer free lithographs. They also occasionally offer free gift cards with the purchase of certain items.
In this online Disney store you can find toys, games, movies, music, video games, computer games, furniture, seasonal items, clothing, accessories, home dÃ?Â©cor items, collectibles, and pins. In the past you could return items that you bought from the online Disney Store to any physical Disney Store, however, this is no longer an option. Returns now need to be sent to: DisneyShopping.com, 3805 Furman L. Fendley Hwy., Jonesville, SC 29395 within 30 days for most items. Shipping and handling for this site is based on the total price of your order as well as how fast you want your items. Standard shipping ranges between $8.50 and $26.50, and Express Shipping will range between $18.45 and $36.45.
If you are looking for special collectible Disney items like pins, special edition lithographs, or Disney figurines then you may want to browse through DisneyAuction.com. Here you will be able to register for an auction account and place bids on top quality collectibles offered exclusively by Disney. The auction format offers you the chance to invest in a collectible piece at a bargain price. You can browse through the items on this site by Collectibles, Limited Edition Pins, Artists, and New Releases.
Before you decide to buy an item from this site it is a good idea to read through the FAQ section so you know the rules and restrictions of using this site. You should know that because of the nature of this site and the type of items being sold on this site, they generally will not replace or exchange items that are bought on this site. For more information about purchase guarantees and limitations you should read through the “Conditions of Sale” section in the FAQ section. Shipping prices will be listed with the item, so make sure you read through the entire listing before placing a bid.
DisneyOutlet.com offers closeout and clearance items that were first offered at Disney Stores and at DisneyShopping.com. On this site you can find clearance items up to 60% off their original retail price. You can shop by new arrivals, deal of the week, Disney savings, swim shop, and last chance deals. Also seasonal items will often be offered after the holiday season is over. This is a great place to buy Disney Christmas ornaments for the next year as they often are clearance priced at 50% after Christmas is over.
This site offers the same shipping and return policies as DisneyShopping.com does. Returns will need to be sent back to DisneyOutlet.com, just as merchandise from DisneyShopping.com needs to be returned to them. You can find the return address in the FAQ section, or by clicking on the Return/Exchange Policy link at the bottom of the DisneyOutlet.com homepage. Standard shipping ranges between $8.50 and $26.50, and Express Shipping will range between $18.45 and $36.45. The benefit of shopping at DisneyOutlet.com is that you will be paying less per item, and therefore you will be paying less shipping per item.
