MerchPass Coming For Minnie Mouse Main Attraction Collection
Earlier this Summer we told you about a new lottery system that shopDisney is implementing for in-demand items called MerchPass. Under the system, guests can sign up to be selected to purchase popular items and limited edition releases at shopDisney. The idea is to try to curb people buying popular items to then resell on Ebay. shopDisney put the system to the test earlier this Summer for their Disney Castle Collection and today, they just released word that they will also be using it for the upcoming release of Minnie Mouse Main Attraction Collection.
The Minnie Mouse Main Attraction features a different theme every month fashioned after some of your favorite classic Disney attractions. This latest release will be the 6th ride featured in the collection and as you can see from the items above the theme is Peter Pan’s Flight. The collection will include a Minnie Mouse collectible plush, Loungefly mini backpack, mouse ears, coffee mug and pin collection. We think it’s fantastic that they’re doing MerchPass for these items as they typically sell out within minutes.
For those interested in trying your luck at nabbing some of the awesome items above, the MerchPass will be open on 7/27 starting at 7am (PT) and will be open through 7/28 at 11:59pm. Here’s the steps you can follow to sign up!
As you can see from the email above, using the new MerchPass system is a three step process. Guests can choose the item, then its a waiting game to see if you received an email to see if you won the drawing to PURCHASE that item. If successful you’ll have a limited-time window to buy the items for your family. You then can login to complete your purchase and you’ll already find the item in your bag!
Can I decide not to purchase if I am selected from the drawing?
Yes. There is no obligation to by if selected nor are there fees or penalties for deciding not to purchase. However, to make sure that everyone has a fair chance of winning, Disney recommends that you only enter the drawing for Early Access if you’d like to purchase the item.
For drawings with multiple products, can I enter for more than one product?
Yes, but there is a limit of one (1) entry per person per product. If selected, only one (1) unit of each product can be purchased. If you enter for the chance to purchase multiple products, each product will have its own drawing and you may be selected in all, some, or none of the drawings.
How will I know if I was selected for the drawing?
If your entry was selected, you will be notified via email.
Can I go back to unselect from or add products to the drawing once I submit my entry?
After submitting your entry, you will not be able to Edit meaning you can unselect a product or select another product. You can decide not to purchase the product if your entry is selected in the drawing and you have been given an early access purchase opportunity.
I was selected in the drawing! How do I complete my purchase?
Simply log in to your Disney Account on shopDisney.com during the purchase window identified on the Early Access Drawing page to complete the purchase. You can use the link in the email notifying you that your entry was selected. During the purchase window, your Bag will already have the selected Early Access Drawing product(s) in it. You may add other items from shopDisney.com to your Bag, but do not remove the Early Access Drawing products from your Bag unless you no longer wish to purchase them. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not complete your purchase by the date designated in the Early Access Drawing page, you will not be able to purchase the Early Access Drawing product as part of this promotion.
What happens if I am not selected for the drawing?
f your entry is not selected, you will not receive the early access purchase opportunity for the product. These products may be offered for sale at shopDisney.com and/or in the Disney store at a later date.
My entry was selected. Can I transfer the opportunity to purchase to someone else?
No. The opportunity to purchase the product is personal to the selected entrant.
Do I have to live in the U.S. to be able to enter?
Yes, Early Access Drawings are currently available for Guests shopping in the U.S. These products are eligible for shipment to U.S. addresses only.
Does the price include shipping and taxes?
No. Applicable shipping and taxes will be added onto the designated price at checkout.
When purchasing, can I buy other products and use promotion codes?
Yes, you may add other items from shopDisney.com to your Bag for purchase in the same transaction. You may also enter promotion codes, which are subject to their promotion terms and will be applied to eligible purchases. Please note that certain promotion codes exclude limited edition and limited release products, including Early Access Drawing products, but they may be applied to other eligible items in your transaction.
