Oops, forgot to follow up. Yeah, only 3 others behind us at opening. We hung out and talked with AFOLs and staff for about an hour, and the Cafe was selling pretty steady, but they restocked them from the back once or twice. (Didn't see anyone go for the Maersk ship).
Few side notes: The staff mentioned that they got a "shelf layout chart" today or yesterday, and it showed Metalbeard's ship. Kinda strange to get those instructions unless the ship is coming out kinda soon. The employee had no additional info (so kinda cool being more "in the know" with that leaked box pict).
Also, they didn't have any of the new Friends sets, the Movie Firetruck/Mech set (arrives Monday), or the Cuusoo Curiosity set (which was of course back ordered at Shop@Home by then (and includes $7 shipping). :-/
