    I haven't seen any either. I bought mine shortly before the ride closed. Most of my JAWS shirts have shrunk a bit due to being all cotton so I'll have to eventually replace them.

    I really can't stand those guys. Even after dismissing their advances, they still persist on trying to get me to sign up for something.

    Yeah they are pretty aggressive, normally if you say you are from Orlando they leave you alone, but we got stopped by one of them the other day. We thought about doing it maybe to help out some of our guests coming down for the wedding, but the guy was kept pushing the hard sale to sign up for it right then. If he would have just calmed down he probably would have had at least 3 people booked.

    Years ago when I went to Dollywood, we did 3 different time shares presentations for tickets and spending money and they were their own special kind of hell. I was 19 back then and I have a soft spot for Infomercials and even then I could feel the shyster was strong.

    Woah, I love this store. The resort had been hurting for a store like this and they can do so much more with the concept. Hope they keep it up and it doesn't become a dumping ground for more Potter merch.

    Im pretty sure this will somehow tie into USF 25. Also i know they can do previewing in the La Bumba building. They did that a few months ago.

    They still have the survey people who pay you to watch shows.

    They want you to put a 100.00 deposit on a credit card. Just tell them you don't have one.

    I hope they bring back the Bates Motel Bath Robes and Ashtrays.

    I heard they're now homed in the Darkroom, which had been sitting empty for a LONG time.

    Somewhat related: they certainly did this quick and under the radar. Almost makes me wonder if they won't open the museum in the same sudden, overnight manner.

    I was in the store briefly yesterday, really want the Bride of Frankenstein purse, but will wait until December when I can get 50% off.

    I think this was a good move; it will be a revenue generator all the time, instead of sometimes, because no one ever knew when that place was going to be open. The Darkroom, or around La Bamba, would be a good place for the 3rd parties to move, although if it were up to me, I'd get rid of them all.

    Nice shop! This shows that they're still up for the movie studio theme of the park.

    If you skip ahead to 12:42 Tim does a great job of giving a visual tour of the new Film Vault store.

    Does the film vault change up what it's selling much? I have seen some things that I would love, but not visiting until September so they might have changed their stock by then.
