    Just wondered if anyone has been and what they thought of it, etc. :-)

    I noticed on their website that they have directions to it provided by google. You can type in your starting address and then it gives you directions to it. It says its near the airport, but really it's not as close as they claim it is according to their directions.

    I saw they have lots of old cars there for sale... including some on their ebay store... like the horizons one. That amused me.

    So I went to Mousesurplus this past Friday, and it was definitely amazing. They had some great deals due to bedroom sets, tables, and chairs.

    I'm actually going to buy the starter stuff for my Condo when I get it. They had dressers for 150 bucks from Ft. Wilderness and the Polynesian. They had an entire bedroom set (10 piece I think, lamps, sheets, everything) for 500 bucks. It was REALLY nice. It's highly amusing. It is definitely a great spot to check out whenever you are in the area. I'd totally suggest it.

    They do have a horizons car in the showroom. Just go to mousesurplus.com and get directions from their website. They have a "locate us" button and then they also have a "get directions" button where you can type in your address and it will give you directions directly to it. The most direct way to it is the beeline, but there are other ways to get to it also. :-)

    How much did you have to spend on that? If you don't mind sharing. I'm very curious if a trip is even worth it for me.

    I purchased an armoire from them on Ebay for over $300 and my husband went to pick it up from their "warehouse" in Detroit. It wasn't even a warehouse, it was an old church or theater of some sort in a bad neighborhood. He called me from the place to tell me that there wasn't a single armoire that didn't have something seriously wrong with it! There were drawers falling out, doors falling off, large cracks, and they smelled like alcohol. I've asked for a refund, so we'll have to see how long it will take to get my money back. Bottom line: Don't buy something from them without seeing it first.

    Something doesn't sound right there because the only Mouse Surplus I know of has a single warehouse in Orlando. Sounds fishy to me... maybe that's why it was in such bad shape?

    Many of the sales on their Ebay store have item locations of Detroit/Orlando/Los Angeles. Apparently, the Detroit location is only a "warehouse." It is the actual Mouse Surplus. You can check it out yourself: http://stores.ebay.com/Mouse-Surplus...dZ2QQpZ4QQtZkm but I don't suggest bidding on anything. They still have not replied in regard to the refund after 4 days. When I was asking questions about the armiore because I was interested in buying one, they were emailing me immediately-AT 1AM! Apparently, they aren't as interested in customer service when someone isn't pleased. It's sad because I know they are percieved as a reputable company with Disney fans. I know, I'm one of them.

    Here's the link to the armoire I won. http://cgi.ebay.com/Disney-Grand-Cal...QQcmdZViewItem They're running another auction for one of the other 25 or so they have. As you can see, they describe the item as having "normal wear." I do not consider huge cracks, doors falling off and drawers not staying in as normal wear.

    I can't speak of the quality of the items at the other warehouses, but there was not a single piece that was in usable quality at the Detroit warehouse. (If I were to venture a guess as to the reason Disney sold these, I would say it was because they were damaged in the room and had to be removed.) Thank goodness I didn't pay the $600+ for shipping!!!

    I was at their warehouse in Orlando, and the stuff was in EXCELLENT condition. So I just blame it on the warehouse. I'm actually planning on going to possibly buy a bedroom set from them in the Orlando Warehouse. They let you pick out your exact armoire. I was highly impressed. Maybe the Detroit Warehouse just damanged them on the way shipping there because in the Orlando Warehouse, while the Warehouse is nothing special all the merchandise was in amazing condition.

    Well I'm in the same boat... If I do ever buy from them it'll be because I go there and look before I do.
