I guess you can’t Lighting Lane the shopping queue at EPCOT today for the launch of the 40th Anniversary merchandise. According to WDW Magic the line for guests to purchase the special merchandise stretched out from the Creations shop and around to The Seas with Nemo and Friends. The wait time was said to be four hours long!

Still not as bad as the Figment popcorn bucket, but not good.

They even posted a video:


Twitter is posting updates:

Other sites said it was 2 hours long not 4.

It’s now at about 2.5 hours.


Of course merchandise is already on eBay.

Don’t overpay. A lot of the merchandise is also on Shop Disney today and Disney said they would be adding more throughout the month.
