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!
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.
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.
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.
