    Manda,

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. I thought the same thing as my issue came in the mail, which coincided with a trip to the Disney store and my disappointment in the complete lack of "adult" merchandise (No, not THAT type of "adult" merchndise! You know what I mean ).

    We as "adults" (I use that term loosely as it applies to me) are the ones that spend the money, yet the quality and quantitiy of merchandise afforded to us has shrunken continuously over the years. Even while in was in WDW, I felt that the selection of adult clothing was not whatit could or should be.

    I can personally guarantee a rise in the stock prices if they would just make some cool stuff for me to wear!

    I'd second that comment! I mainly purchase clothes that I can wear to work, with a few side items for the weekend. If I wanted to, I could probably count on just two hands the number of Disney clothes that I've purchased for myself.

    The sad thing is that a lot of the remaining "Adult" clothes are geared towards women (in my opinion). I tend to like the more masculine clothes like my shirts for Binford Tools and the Patty Cake Lounge.


    I also have a pretty cool weekend shirt that has two dragons that twist around to form the classic Mickey tri-circle outline. Some people have commented on that shirt and didn't even realize it was Disney until I pointed it out.

    I have finally received my last issue today. I will probably get the disney's adventures for my daughter. Makes me sad--nothing to look foward to.

    I also agree about the adult clothing!!

    I got my last issue too. I'm not going to continue with the other mags. I want Dis Magazine, not the others. If I wanted them, I would already subscribe to them.

    I'm right there with you Amanda. Granted, we're expecting our first child, but it's been a long time since TDS has offered any decent adult clothing. Even the catalog has a very limited selection. It makes me sad.... You'd think the bean counters would target adults without kids since they are also Disney fans and may have more disposable income to hand over for purchases. **sigh** Too bad the Disney people don't see the marketing potential in adult clothing.....

    When I started working at the Disney Store it had a great selection for adults, watches, cels, clothes, ties, socks, hats, the Disney Classics Collection. I worked there for five years and the selection depleted bit by bit each year. Now when I go in all I see are toys, plush, and clothes for kids. All of which you can buy at WalMart for considerably less.

    Has anybody else who requested a refund get their check yet? I made my request on May 20....was hoping to have it before we leave next week for extra spending money for the boys. I had to laugh because the charge for our renewal was just posted on our last Disney Visa bill!!! I've paid, they cancelled so now where's my money!!!!

    Received my refund late last week (6/9 or 6/10?)

    I called, as luck would have it, to receive a refund check as we were driving from home to Orlando for our Disney excursion (around May 22nd). I got a refund check just a few days ago, maybe June 9th or 10th? A day before that, I got a letter saying that the refund had been processed and that I would receive a refund within 4 - 6 weeks. Weird in and of itself, but:

    Funny thing was, I thought the refund amount was strange. My subscription was paid through the end of 2007, but my refund was $27.44. Weird amount, I thought.

    Hope this info helps those of you who are still waiting...Hang in there!

    I got a letter on Monday June 13 saying I will be getting a refund check in 2 weeks. On Tuesday June 14 I had the refund check. It was for $14.96 for the rest of my subscription that went until Winter `06.

    Does Disney really want my money? After all, DH and I currently do not have children. I just get the feeling I'm not part of demographic they care too much about. Do any other adults w/o children or empty nesters ever feel this way too? I understand they are a business, and yadda yadda yadda....but sometimes I wonder.

    Manda, I have two children who won't wear Disney clothes. They did when they were small.

    When TDS phased out the Adult clothing, I figured my only option was going back to WDW for them . Although the classic classy quality clothes of TDS are quickly becoming a thing of the past.

    We were shopping on monday and even though I have not found anything in my nearest TDS in recent years I was shocked and saddened to see it empty. The welcoming Disney logo that adorned the floor at the entrance has been removed and the gate was down as if in a somber funeral observance.

    Jac... Is it the logo for the exclusive Imagineering DisneySea pin??
