Shop Disney strikes again! This time it was the Harveys release for the new Play in the Parks Bags. They were to go live at 7AM PST/ 10AM EST and people complained that not only could they not find them on the site, they were sold out within a couple of minutes. It also went to the app and when that happens it usually is gone from there before the website.
It had gotten so bad with the app that they had stopped launching items on the app for awhile. Apparently they went back to that and it seems to have gone the same way it was going before.
Walt Disney World was selling them at select locations and they were only given a few and were gone almost immediately.

Of course they were already on eBay at almost double the price immediately.
The comments on Facebook and Instagram all confirm this. People are NOT happy.
Harveys said on Instagram that Disney could reorder more if there was enough demand. I would say given the response there was more than enough demand for these! Especially the backpack, which is what many people, myself included, wanted.
Disney order more! Don’t unload them all on the app this time.
