On October 25, Disney Parks announced that they would be releasing a second edition Haunted Mansion Tiki Mug, just in time for Halloween. Disney said that the Haunted Mansion Tiki Mug would be available for mobile order from Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Resort beginning at 6 a.m. on October 28. Mobile ordering would only be available while supplies last, and each Guest had to be over the age of 21 and could purchase a maximum of two Tiki Mugs.
Well, the day came and the Haunted Mansion Tiki Mug proved to be incredibly popular — despite the $85 price tag. Guests were quick to jump onto the Disneyland app and order their mug at 6 a.m. — with pickup times available between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. The mug was sold out in a matter of minutes and, as with a lot of Disney merchandise, was soon found being sold for outrageous prices on websites like eBay.
As stated, those who purchased the mug through mobile order on the Disneyland Resort app only paid $85 for the mug. However, that same mug was priced on eBay for double or triple the price — and sometimes more.
These are just some of the insane prices we found:
Disney merchandise has always been a popular target for resellers, but lately, things seem to be getting worse, and fans and Guests are getting fed up and calling resellers out. One Guest was recently spotted at EPCOT with a stroller full of EPCOT 40th merchandise — including piles of t-shirts, multiple Loungefly backpacks, spirit jerseys, and more.
Resellers have also been called out by Guests for hoarding popular items like the Figment popcorn bucket — which went on sale at 2022’s EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. The popcorn buckets were so popular that some Guests waited in line for 5 hours to get their hands on one. The Figment buckets sold out the same day they were released and were later found online for hundreds of dollars (the bucket only cost about $20).
Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort are not the only Disney Parks having to deal with resellers. Guests visiting the Tokyo Disney Resort snapped a picture of Guests using fake babies as a way to buy more merchandise. Other Guests visiting Disneyland Paris took photos of Guests walking through the Park with wagons full of the new Phantom Manor figurine.
