  1. Now this one, I definitely remember! I think I even remember it being sold at Knott's Berry Farm in Virginia's Gift Shop. They didn't have any problem selling Disney merchandise....and actually, they still don't. Just last year, I saw tons of "Frozen" merchandise for sale inside the park. Weird!

    1. That's pretty amazing Knott's selling Disney merch, but it makes a lot of sense too.
