UPDATED Dec. 9th 2:00pm Eastern Time
Our initial order with our fulfillment partner was for 10,000 DVDs, but All 10,000 discs sold out in the first 36 hours! As of this morning (12/9), we have orders for more than 14,000 DVDs! The first 10,000 discs were shipped from Texas today, Dec. 9th. The vendor is now producing another 7,500 DVDs and expects to ship the remaining orders on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, still in plenty of time for Christmas.
If you have not yet placed your order, I recommend you do so immediately. There are about 3,000 more DVDs in the 2nd production run that can be shipped in time for Christmas. Once they're gone, subsequent orders won't arrive until after the holiday.
The vendor is still saying that regular ground orders placed before 12/12 "should" make it well before Christmas, provided that the remaining 3,000 DVDs don't sell out. However, I know FedEx ground has had problems with the holiday rush in past years. If you place new orders for ground shipment, they "probably" will arrive before Christmas, but you should be aware of the risk that they might not.
