    • October 19- Last day for Merchandise RSP item cancellations
    • October 21- RSP Merchandise is charged to Guest credit cards
    • December 4- Disney Heroes vs. Villains Digital Pin Experience
  • The RSP always starts with the first item and moves sequentially through the list of available items. It gathers all the Guests that put item #1 as their first preference, and then randomizes the Guest list. Next, it will match up a random Guest with a piece, continuing until it either runs out of Guests or runs out of pieces. If it awards the item to every Guest that put item #1 as their first preference and still has items remaining it will gather all Guests that put item #1 as their second preference. It will randomize these Guests and start matching them to the remaining pieces. The process continues through preference 3, 4 and so on until it either runs out of Guest preferences or runs out of pieces. When item #1 is complete it will move to item #2 and gather all the Guests that put item #2 as their first preference. The process continues for each item in the catalog and the RSP is complete when it either runs out of Guest preferences or runs out of pieces.
