Disney Store has announced some of their new collections, limited-edition sets, and more never-before-seen items that will make their debut at the D23 Expo. (This should not be confused with the Disney Dream Store which is run by Disney Parks.) Here are some highlights.
- Disney Designer Collection: Formerly known as the Disney Fairytale Designer Collection, the Disney Designer Collection takes the classic assortment beyond the fairytale to tell the iconic stories of Disney’s legacy of film history and introduces three series: Fairytale Series, Folktale Series, and Pixar Animation Studios Series. Three of the new Limited Edition dolls will be available for purchase:
- Fairytale Series: Pinocchio (limited to an edition size of 1,023)
- Folktale Series: Mulan (limited to an edition size of 523)
- Pixar Animation Studios Series: The Incredibles (limited to an edition size of 1,023)
D23 Expo attendees can also preview and pre-purchase a set of the five limited edition dolls releasing at Disney Store locations and DisneyStore.com September–November (each limited to an edition size of 6,000):
