    Or are they not allowed to sell any because Universal owns the Marvel theme park rights?

    I haven't been to Disney in a decade and I just got passes and I thought since Disney now owns Marvel I know they sell Marvel stuff online, maybe they would have cool stuff at the parks. Then I saw an article about Universal Orlando owning the theme park Marvel rights or whatever.

    Anyone have any info on this?

    Sorry for the random question - going to WDW tomorrow, figured I'd ask you wonderful people.

    The Disney store .com had some good stuff a few months ago from Marvel select, but they're gone now.

    I got Winter Soldier from there. There's a comic convention coming up in Macon, Georgia in Feb. I'm saving up now to raid the vendors there.

    Yes exactly.

    Though I don't necessarily want a toy.

    Maybe a T-shirt or something.

    That Spiderman ride in Universal is amazing. Sucks that they got rid of Jaws and King Kong though.

    Was there in the summer
    The ET ride doesn't look dated at all!
    Spiderman and the transformers ride was pretty awesome
    There is a graphic novel section in the superhero part of island of adventure.
