just wondering if they have huge pin meets or get togethers where people can swap pins?
They do. Tinker has been to them a couple of times.
I will be attending this years pin event titled Disney Pin University . You can pin trade at the DTD Marketplace ... but beware some are real sticklers ( pin sharks) and take the fun out of it .
MouseGears store at Epcot has a pin trading board at 5 PM everyday . You give two pins and pick two pins . Also the World Of Disney 2 PM and 6 PM has meets and trading boards . Contemporary holds pin meets & trading monthly, unsure which week .
Great info thanks Tinker!
Are these swaps "newbie friendly" or would I get taken for a ride unless I know pins really well?
The pin shop at DTD had a trading board at the beginning of the year when we were there....wonder if that's still there!
The only swaps "newbie friendly" are the pin events . Or any meet that is announced officially through Disney . Cast Members love answering newbie questions and interacting with guests .
Oh my...pins pins pins. I love pins. Yes there are those out there who'll take advantage of you if you don't know what you have.
Ah, Thank You Isafari, that is the most recent that has been opened . Not sure of the time, they open it , but you can ask if you are at DTD . Also, there is a pin trading board on Tuesdays at POR 5:00 PM .
