The Benefit SaleI love shopping!  And when my shopping can benefit the Orlando local community, why then my ADOS (Attention Deficit OOOOOHHHHHH SHINEY) makes me a model citizen.

The Disney Community Relations team has been working with Downtown Disney, the Heart of Florida United Way and their local agencies to create an early morning shopping experience on November 6, 2010 from 5:30 to 9:30 am.

With the purchase of a $5 voucher, all proceeds go directly to the Heart of Florida United Way, shoppers will get a wristband to gain entrance into exclusive sales offering deeply discounted park merchandise, doorbusters, designer boutiques (Dior, Pucci, Acqua di Parma & Guerlain),  and product launches at several locations in Downtown Disney.

The things that really stick out to this shopper are:

  • Launch of a 9” Rocketeer Vinylmation figure {reason enough for me to go! ~Z}
  • Launch of the newest Urban 5 3” Vinylmation Pin Mystery Set (Limited Edition of 1000)
  • The Designer Boutiques will be offering “Purchase with Purchase and Gifts with Purchases”
  • Select Dooney & Bourke purses will be offered at a discount
  • Select Vinylmations will be included in the sale

The Benefit Sale site, will be updated to include more information about the specials and event activities on October 1, 2010.

I have gone to the Annual Passholder sales that are held this early in the morning at World of Disney, and while getting there was a little rough the sales were totally worth the extra bags under my eyes!
I know that I’ll be there in my finest shopping PJs…will you?
