On October 28, 1999, 250 Mr. Toad fans and Disney collectors, having paid their $100 each, gathered for "An Enchanted Evening". Beginning at 8:00 p.m. guests browsed the merchandise available for the evening that was set up around Carnation Plaza Gardens. Each guest was given a form listing the available merchandise, its edition size and cost. Guests were limited in the number of the various items they could purchase. Upon completing the form, guests turned it into a cast member who confirmed the information. The items were packaged for pickup on Main Street at the conclusion of the evening's activities. Also available during this time were Tony Baxter, Vice President Creative Development and Theresa Miller, artist. Unfortunately Disney Legend John Hench, originally scheduled to attend, was not in attendance for the evening's activities.
