april box

Please watch my above unboxing video. In addition, you can check out the below photos, links and additional info. This month’s box was quite spectacular.

fantasy mag
Loot Crate April 2015 Fantasy Pin
approximately $1
Yes, that value is made up, but I just feel that based on my experience this pinbacks are usually priced around there. This is a neat addition to the set of Loot Crate pins I’m slowly starting to collect.

me dnd tee
Dungeons & Dragons T-Shirt
from dndmerch.com
approximately $12
This particular tee was manufactured by the company Wizards of the Coast. They have many Dungeons & Dragons tees for sale here, starting at $14.95. Their Zazzle store doesn’t feature the exact tee in this box though. I’m going to base the price off of dndmerch.com’s site since theirs is more accurate to the design.

dragon tie
Red & Gold Dragon Bow Tie
from Black Tie Geek
approximate value $14
Their site isn’t up yet. A tie by them that was previously featured in a Loot Crate goes for around $14 on Amazon. This is fun. Not a frequently wearable item, but cool for every once in a while.

crown
Inflateable Crown
from Loot Crate Labs
approximately $1
I’m basing the above price on buying a dozen from Amazon. This is silly and would be fun to wear around at a renaissance festival or house party when you get in your cups.

princess bride cards
The Princess Bride Playing Cards
from Albino Dragon
$14.99
The main characters from the film are prominently illustrated on this set. I don’t think a deck of cards should cost almost $15, but if you were going to buy this anyway, then these are basically almost equal to the price of the entire box. They are very nice cards though. I just wouldn’t personally pay more than $10 for them.

potter tag
Harry Potter 9 3/4 Bag Tag
from Bioworld
$11.76
In the video, I said this would probably sell for around $10, I was so close. This is a very nice, large PVC luggage tag. I’m not even a Potterhead and I appreciate how well made it is. Definitely worth the retail price.

got usb
Game of Thrones Stark Sigil USB Drive
from CustomUSB
approximately $17
This is a 4GB drive. It was manufactured exclusively for Loot Crate. The shinier 8GB drive that is from the same company retails for about $34, so I’m giving this one a value of half of that price. In the video above, I mention that USB drives typically go for around $8-$12 around here. However, this is a themed drive, so it would cost more. This is one of my favorite items in the box!

got magnets
Game of Thrones House Sigil Magnet Set
from Dark Horse
approximately $9.99
The above GOT magnet set is very similar to this one, but includes 3 more magnets. My guess at a price of these in the video was $6, so if you factor in the extra magnets in the set above, I’m probably pretty spot on. I’m going to leave it at $9.99 though, because this particular set isn’t currently listed online. I really like these. I’m not super into magnets at this point in my life, but they are definitely fun. You can’t go wrong with anything Game of Thrones related when it comes to me.

Actual Price
$19.95

Approximate Retail Value
$81.74

I’d definitely recommend this month’s Loot Crate. Everything was up my alley. It’s a great monetary value and a great value for me because I actually like the items.

loot 8

You can buy it here on Amazon for $10.43.

loot 2

The Blueprint Waka-Waka by Manny Peters is available here for $14.56.

The tee by version of this poster is available here for $14.

loot 6

You can buy it here for $8.67 (The Kindle version is $3.99).

loot 4

A button is worth about $1.

loot 3

Retail Value: $62.61
Loot Crate Price: $19.95

I can’t/won’t? estimate the cardboard game box. The total of the rest of it is definitely higher than I thought when I recorded the video. I’d never pay that much for a poster. It’s a cool design though and the tee version is a decent price. Plus I wasn’t familiar with the pricing of the toys. This is definitely a fun collection that I’d recommend.

I extended my college program into the photopass role. I recorded this a couple of weeks ago. I was (am?) so excited. What is photopass (dpi)? Watch the video y’all. This is what I “knew” prior to starting any of the training. I was talking about getting through everything because I was ending my first program. You go directly from one to the other.

So basically New Year’s Eve always sucks. However, eventually, after this video, I called people who actually care about me. Sometimes you gotta hit up your town back home to find those who care. I mean, as much as I want to make friends here, it’s not like I’m going to know them forever anyway, so I guess it’s not that big of a deal.

Watch on to find out more about my personal experience as a cast member in merchandise at Walt Disney World.

I believe that the only thing that I forgot to mention (well briefly alluded to) in the video is merchantainment. Merchantainment means entertaining guests. You can do this while working the many functions of your role. I have gotten to do it much more so while I was in greeter role at my store, which I haven’t been doing as much lately.

While merchantaining you can generally chat with the guests, give out stickers or buttons or even play games with them. I’ve even asked children for their autographs “because Mickey asked me to do so”. Another small touch is asking for a guest’s “autograph” instead of their signature when they have to sign for a purchase. Those are the kind of small, yet fun personal touches that add to a guest’s experience. I’m pretty burnt out right now and forgot to mention them in the video. They are definitely worth knowing about though. I may do another video strictly about merchantaining in the future.

I haven’t worked World of Disney yet (due to the construction/traffic/parking issues currently happening in Downtown Disney, aka the soon to be Disney Springs). I do plan to one day though. I have worked the Emporium (the biggest store in Magic Kingdom).
