    I'd love to attend this event, but unfortunately already made plans to work the morning before heading out to pollyana

    Seem's like an interesting weekend for D23: Roy E Disney event, now this, then Pollyana.

    This is GREAT! I am so jazzed! It's also super its on the same day as Pollyanna, but not a conflict - super coordination by the 2 divisions - and its free to D23 members! I have been to Club 33, even Walt's apartment, multiple times - but WDI only once - and it will be a treat to see what they have (even though the pins aren't my thing). Now where to eat lunch before Pollyanna starts? Thanks d23 and thanks for posting this!

    Re: D23 Pin Trading Event at WDI

    I saw the D23 tweet that read:
    D23 Members invited to Walt Disney Imagineering campus for a special event @ Mickey's of Glendale 5/8! D23 | The Official Community for Disney Fans
    And I got really excited... until I clicked on it and read that it's a pin and vinylmation trading event.

    I thought it was going to be a special visit (and maybe small tour) of the WDI campus. Thankfully, I don't trade pins or vinylmation, the only ones I have have sentimental value to me and won't be traded.
    Honestly the only reason I'd go would be to check out the WDI campus and maybe get some cool Imagineering merch.

    I would say no because I find it unlikely that a cast member/employee of Disney can sell their personal work within a Disney store unless it has some tie in with the company. But if is sold there, do let us know

    I just have to say though... those sorcerer hat pins are fugly! bleh.

    I'm planning to go! I don't have any Vinylmation and although I have a lot of pins I don't really trade...but I want to see WDI, even what little bit is available at this event. And I wouldn't mind picking up a WDI pin or two. So it'll be a D23 day...first this event, then Pollyanna.

    I'm not a pin trader either, but I have friends who are. The only reason I'm getting up early to drive east is to take her there as my guest so she can be a pin head with the rest of the traders. I've never been to WDI, so that'll be my treat…mine and my camera's! Don't expect to see that much, but it'll be cool just to be there for once.
