    Disney's Pin Celebration - Pin Trading University

    http://psc.disney.go.com/eventservic...ation2008.html

    This looks interesting. I've got plans that weekend or else I'd try to check it out. Considering the pin trading culture/community is so different on each coast this seemed like an interesting approach to the annual September pin event. Is anyone interested enough to participate?

    It's going to be $150 per person. We have been debating about going this to it this year.

    Apparently you get a whole bunch of "free" stuff, like pins and bags. I haven't been to a big pin trading event like that, but I can't imagine having enough self-control to not come home with a bunch of newly purchased pins as well

    Merchandise artwork has been released. I must say I am overwhelmingly(sp?) disappointed with the designs. Almost sad. The price is $100 for early bird. Then it goes up to $115.

    The images are at: http://eventservices.disney.go.com/f...og_Artwork.pdf

    Can you only by these if you're registered for the Pin University? Our first day in the parks is the last day of the event and I really don't want to pay $300 for us to get in JUST to get the few duckie pins in the brochure!

    I actually really like these pins! Wish I could get some!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
