Hi ya’ll! First time ever going to one of these events I have some questions, please forgive my ignorance. So, since I am going with my husband and he is just not into pin trading, how does admission into the event work? I am obviously purchasing the pin package ahead of the RSP end date but for my husband to wander around the event with me, does he require that package as well or can he register but not click on that add-on and be allowed in? TIA!May 31, 2018 at 5:27 AM #30261
In order to “hang out” at the event you will need to pay for the package. It’s not the worst thing in the world. You will get double the event pins and can use them to trade with others if they may possibly want doubles. Or find someone to sell them to that isn’t/can’t go to the event. I’d imagine you may be able to find someone on this forum that would be willing to pay the $135 for the event pins. Plus you’d get double trade tickets for the boards.June 5, 2018 at 9:56 PM #30524
I just found out about this event. I am coming in that Saturday morning. I land at 8:30am so I figure that I won’t get to the park until 10:30. Would it be worth it for 3/4 of a day? What are the chances of some of the limited edition pins still left? Also what is the trading board games? Thanks for the advice.June 5, 2018 at 11:41 PM #30526
This is a tough one. As far as getting the pins you will have the same chance as anyone to get them. They are purchased before the event even starts through a random selection process. Where essentially you put the pins that you want to buy on a prioritized list. You will also get all the other gift pins for attending the event. The only thing you will miss out on is the trade board vouchers. You get 4 trades on the boards per day so you would miss out on half of them. If you’re ok with losing out on those 4 trades I’d say it’s worth it to just be there the one day. If the cast members are nice they may allow you to use them from the previous day too but I couldn’t guarantee that.June 25, 2018 at 10:35 PM #31267
Hello everyone. When trading on the boards can you use pins that came from a booster set? Or should you use pins that come on cards? First time at a pin event do I don’t want break any pin etiquette rules and get sent to pin jailJune 27, 2018 at 4:00 PM #31330
I believe the only official “rules” they have for the pins you trade on the boards are that the pin has some sort of Disney property on it and that it is a pin. Not a button or anything of that nature.July 4, 2018 at 9:54 AM #31506
Not sure if you guys saw but the event is SOLD OUT now! There is a waiting list for anyone still wanting to go.July 4, 2018 at 5:40 PM #31515
When trading on the pins boards do the cast members put the pins they get from guest on the board, what are the chances of getting fake pins?July 6, 2018 at 10:51 PM #31619
Submitted RSP forms for me, my mama, and my mama-in-law today!!! Fingers crossed! 🤞🏻August 1, 2018 at 7:45 PM #32772
Yes, pinqueen1125. The pins that people trade at the board are put back on the board. I haven’t ever gotten a scrapper but I have heard through the grapevine that if you do, they allow you to trade it in for a real one.August 8, 2018 at 11:33 AM #33022
@pinqueen1125 I can confirm that if you think you get a fake you can request Disney to “test” it and they will verify it behind scenes to if is an actual fake or not and actually give you a little insight into the pin if it is real. However, that was last year and we all know things change year by year.August 14, 2018 at 11:48 AM #33225
This is from the “Know Before You Go” email.

Event Days at Epcot, World ShowPlace, August 24-25
Arriving at the Event:
Because the event begins after Park open, all Guests, both ticketed Event Guests and Park day Guests, will enter through the touchpoints at Epcot at the same time. Event Guests will be lined up in the order that they arrive to ensure fairness. Guests with breakfast reservations in the Park may join the end of the entry line once they are finished with their dining experience. We regret that we cannot hold a place in line for these Guests.
As part of our theme park policies, certain personal items are not permitted inside the park, including:
Any trailer-like object that is pushed or towed by an Electronic Conveyance Vehicle, wheelchair or stroller, or pulled by a person, including wagons.
Suitcases, coolers or backpacks with or without wheels larger than 24″ x 15″ x 18″ (61 x 38 x 46 cm)

At the Event:
Due to space limitations in World ShowPlace, each attendee may bring ONE trading bag up to 24″ x 15″ x 18″ (61 x 38 x 46 cm) in size into the venue.
To keep a fair trading environment for all ticketed Event Guests, we will be implementing space limits in the Pin Trading Area. Guests may occupy the space directly in front of their chair and the chair across from them. Please be courteous to other Event Guests wanting to trade at the tables by adhering to these space limits.
This year, we will provide a tent card in your registration packet with your name on it. If you need to leave the trading table, your tent card must be placed on your space so we know who those pins belong to. By choosing to leave a trading table, you are assuming all risk as we cannot be responsible for any lost or stolen pins or personal items.
Please note these space restrictions and plan accordingly when deciding what pins to bring with you. Aisles between tables must be kept clear so as not to create tripping hazards or other safety concerns. Remember that only one trading bag is allowed per Guest in the venue.
Each Guest’s credential has four Pin Trading Tabs for Friday and four Pin Trading Tabs for Saturday. Each Pin Trading Tab will allow you to trade up to two pins within a 60 second trading time, and must be used by 5:00 p.m. on the date listed.
Only one Pin Trading Tab may be redeemed per time in line, no exceptions.
To keep a fair trading environment, please take your turn as soon as you are able and do not wait for the boards to be refreshed. Guests doing so will forfeit their turn and will be asked to move to the back of the line. Additionally, once the timer begins and the Guest views the pins on the board, they must turn in a Pin Trading Tab, even if they decide not to trade a pin.
