    It wouldn't surprise me at all if they were still in the storeroom. Anytime the inventory sites say it should be there I ask an employee to help me track it down or at least check their handset which has a more accurate inventory. Admittedly how helpful they are is YMMV, but almost all my stores have people who at least try to help out even if sometimes they aren't successful.

    Funny thing...

    About Midnight last night, I got an automated note from Amazon with a "Delivery Estimate Update" on my order of Celebrating Mickey. It tells me that my new estimated delivery date is November 1 - November 2.

    I'll still be looking for a local copy today...hoping to find one at the cheaper price and then cancel the Amazon order.

    Yeah, this is my WalMart literally every single time I go looking on release date for a 4K title. Always a spot for it, always completely empty.

    Looks like about 60% of WM B&M stores now listing in stock up form 20% yesterday morning and 50% at midnight.
    Yesterday my main store didn't have it though but now with 4 copies listed. Luckily I had an errand yesterday that put me nearer my 2nd store,

    Wayne, Adam...I don't know how interested you are in this title...but there are now three copies left at the Crossgates Wal-Mart. :D

    To be fair...I got an e-mail tonight from the very Amazon rep who told me she would keep checking and let me know when the title would be available and when I might receive it.

    And right after I read that e-mail...I canceled my Amazon order for the title. :laugh:

    Is there anything on this "Mickey" set that was not included on the earlier Disney Treasures sets in tins?

    There's a thread over in the software forum in which the contents were discussed at length. I don't have all the Treasures, only some, but my bet is probably not, other than the fact that this is in HD and the Treasures were all DVDs -- there are only 13 shorts on this disc anyway and it is not meant to be comprehensive. (Well, Get a Horse from 2013 isn't on a Treasures set, but that is on Frozen, so more people have that than any other Blu-ray ever sold anyway.)

    Funnily enough, Amazon just price matched Wal-Mart's $14.96 on Celebrating Mickey, but they still don't have it in stock.

    I couldn't find even a slot for it at my W*M on Thursday, but there were lots of empty slots I didn't check
