Walt Disney Treasures/Amazon.com, DVDempire

I preordered Mickey Mouse in Living Color 2 and the Chronological Donald from Amazon.com September of last year, and my order is still listed as open, Im concerned that Amazon has not received its shipment yet, I wish they would ship it tomorrow, and my order still reads expected shipping date 12/2003. I also ordered On the frontlines from DVDempire, and its still reads as open, If they dont receive the order today, it wont ship till Monday I wish I could have ordered from an online retailer that ships so that you can get your order on release date.

Well --- Amazon is well known for not shipping until darn near release date, or even on or after. DVD Empire is well known for its very fast shipping; most often, the same day the order is placed if place before 4:00PM (I think that's the time).

Look - if you absolutely must have something on release day, I suggest going to a B&M. I'm heading to my local Sam's Club for the price and because I want to guarantee that my tin isn't dented.

I have all 4 tins ordered from Amazon but don't expect them to ship early. If you wanted them early it would have been better to order from DVDEmpire. They almost always ship preorders on the Friday before the release date. However you would probably need to choose Priority mail to get them on or before release date since Media mail can be unpredictable.

I did choose priority shipping for On the front lines from dvd empire. I just wish I had preordered the two from dvd empire, its too late now, since I sent a money order to Amazon. Ill know next time to order thru DVDempire, I was trying to save some money since Amazon had it cheaper. But at least Ill get one of them on time. Amazon updated my shipping estimate and they said its May 31st. I hope its not true, or I wont order from Amazon again. I ordered these sets from them last Sept!

I placed my orders at Amazon back in early August of last year. I went with them since they offered the best price and I don't mind waiting a few extra days. Anyway you should receive the DVDs well before May 31. The shipping estimates from my experience are always wrong.

I should ask if Amazon automatically updated your shipping estimate or did you call? My open orders still have December 2003 listed on the website.

I got a shipment notice from Amazon today for MM in LC2 and Chronological Donald. (I placed my order in August, I think.) Just a few days ago, my order status page still showed the 2003 release date.

That's great news!

I'm still waiting for my notice, and I've got all four discs (along with Criterion's The Lower Depths) showing some 2003 estimated shipping date from my inital 2003 order.

Happy!

I just noticed on the Amazon website, that the price went up which could only mean one thing. I checked my order and it shows that I can no longer change the order, so it will ship soon! All is well, I hope they will ship it out Monday or Tuesday so I can get it by this weekend.

Checked both of my Amazon orders this morning and it looks like 2 out of the 4 tins are now shipping soon. However they are only shipping one of the tins from each order. So far they appear to be preparing for shipment On the Front Lines and Mickey Mouse in Living Color Part 2. Anyone get a shipping notice from Amazon for Tomorrowland? Keep hearing rumors that particular title is hard to find. Hopefully Amazon will get them in stock.

I also got notice today that On the Front Lines and Mickey Mouse in Living Color Part 2 had shipped from Amazon. Chronological Donald did not ship. My order dates to last year. I wonder if that has anything to do with it? Order still shows - Delivery estimate: Dec 10, 2003 - Dec 11, 2003

I just smell a huge mess coming between this and the apparent limited quantity for Tomorrowland. Crossing my fingers -

I'm so annoyed to hear that people who just recently placed orders are shipping or have already shipped and then my order placed in October 2003 still hasn't shipped yet! I emailed them and they said that they don't ship out before the release date. Since tomorrow is the release date, I will email again to check on the order status. I am just a bit concerned since it still says shipping Dec 10, 2003.

I ordered back in March of this year on Amazon.com and saw today that it shows all my tins as being in the shipping process.

My fears were confirmed about my order today when I sent an email and they said that there was a computer glitch with my 2 orders and so they didn't process correctly. Fortunately, they changed the situation and upped the shipping to 2 day delivery. Now one order shipped and the other is shipping soon. I am very impressed with Amazon's customer service.

I ordered in january, but they now say they won't ship until at least 5/22 - this after I contacted them to see what the problem is. Apparently, if I waited to order now instead of pre-ordering in January, I would get this faster. Never had this problem with a pre-order at Amazon before, but I guess it is standard operating for them.

Not a good way to treat a frequent customer, IMHO...
