Perhaps its a safety issue of some sort.
Has anyone ever experimented with a globe to try and fill it back up with liquid? Just curious. I wouldn't reccomend you try as you could end up breaking the globe. I've read about at least one person who can repair globes so it can be done if you know what your doing, I guess.

Ok, here comes the commercial but bear with me I wouldn't be mentioning it here if I didn't believe it was worth your time.
I've been told about ebates. You sign in at their site before you shop, use their links to go to the store you were allready going to and buy stuff like you normally would with your account, discounts, codes etc. Why? Because they give you cash back on almost all your purchases. In the case of DisneyShopping.com you get 4% back. They have over 800 stores you can shop at and almost all of them give you cash back. Even wal-mart gives you 1%. Tired of buying expensive printer cartridges? Get 16% back. I'll very likely be switching my book buying from Amazon to Barnes and Noble because of this.
The more money you save the more you have to spend on snowglobes!
If your not impressed or happy with this site, I apologize for wasting your time but if your economics is anything like mine right now every little bit helps.
Clicking this link, will take you to their site, put $5 in your rebate account and $5 in mine, but that's not why I'm referring you. I was going to post about it anyway before I found that out just because it is a way to save another 4% on Disney snowglobes.
Remember Juan Ortiz' blog "DisneyStoreShelves"? I loved the concept artwork he was showing on that site but foolishly didn't bother to save any of the pictures before the blog was stopped. Anybody have pictures they could share with me?

This , of course, raises some questions:
- Why on earth would Disney not state that it was a limited edition?
- Are there other globes currently for sale that are limited editions?
Sergio also reports that the Fantasia globe does not play "The Sorceror's Apprentice" and that the Hercules globes plays "Go the Distance" not "Zero to Hero" as the Disney site claims. These may be isolated cases but it seems unlikely he would recieve two different globes playing the wrong music.

This one of Snow White is now available for $79.50. It was originally available in the 1997-1999 catalogs and sold for $95.00. At least the price went down.

While this all makes it easier for me for tracking and fact compiling for my book, it sure makes for a boring blog post.

The Walgreens I got these at still had the Easter globes and cheap snowdomes that I mentioned earlier. Still couldn't find a Cars dome that hadn't leaked all its water out. The cups they had seemed to be mostly gone. I saw 2.

I've mentioned these before but really didn't know anything about them. They are part of a series of 6 but the other three are not Disney characters. They are Bugs Bunny, Raggedy Ann and Popeye. They are 5" tall and the front item inside the dome slides back and forth. In Donald's case it is a figure of Pluto.

Hank feels the mistake globe could be quite valuable. What does everyone else think? As a collector would you pay more for a globe like this? Does anyone own any other mistakes?

A Little Mermaid "Kiss the Girl" globe debuts at #4 spot for over $500 and Pride Rock appears at the #2 spot for over $700! The previous high price that I recorded for Pride Rock was around $140.
