    It’s only for guests staying at a WDW resort, so make sure your resort reservation is made before 3/21 and you won’t have to pay for parking (at resorts)... for this trip, anyway.

    When do they normally release the catalog for the event? Isn't registration next week? Seems like we should be seeing the pins soon.

    I was just saying the same thing. I think we got it three days before registration last year.

    Who knows how the catalog and registration will work? They don't even have a website to put them on yet!

    Exactly. They'll probably post the registration page and the catalog at the same time. :(

    Yeah, this is getting frustrating. Would really like to know what I am getting into. Heck, we don't even know if they will have the breakfast this year, etc. Let alone where we will be able to sign up. (And the pins of course.) Heck, I'm wondering if it will still be this Tuesday. Not cool Disney, not cool.

    As a huge animation nerd, I'm excited about the theme, but here's hoping it won't be TOO retro and they'll include at least SOME post-Walt films. It seems highly unlikely that they would completely exclude the Renaissance, which is pretty much the most popular era (and therefore has the best-selling merch; and we all know how the Mouse feels about gettin' stacks.) And I mean, it's what revitalized the entire art of animation for modern audiences, so how could you not include it with this theme?

    Anyway, even if there's nothing post-Walt in the preview, maybe there will be a surprise Renaissance set and/or chasers? *fingers crossed for Hunch and Herc*
    (Hey, I got both Meg AND Esmeralda pins last year! IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN!!! Don't burst my fantasy world bubble y'all!!!)

    I'm also curious about this year's theme that mentions collectibles. Will this be more than just pins? I know they had a little merch last year but this sounds like it will be something different.

    Just got my confirmation for the DCP, starting August 13th, so it will be very likely that I will be working during the event - but should be able to meet up before or after! Looking forward to see what pins there are, but also hoping that there is nothing I need (please no kingdom hearts please no kingdom hearts)

    Unrelated to the topic at hand, but last time I was in WDW I ordered room service and the CM asked if we would be paying by credit card or by charging it to the room. I said we'd be paying cash. She said, "Ooo, Mickey likes cash." I lost it.

    Let me guess, that CM was immediately dragged away by security for publicly besmirching the Supreme Leader and was never seen or heard from again...

    I'd like to think Mickey understands getting punchy at the end of a long shift.

    Just got off the phone with Guest Services again. So far the web site is not back up, but they told me they are working feverishly to complete it soon. They are hoping to have it back up either today or tomorrow morning for registration. When I asked what we do if it's not back up, they responded with "There's a backup plan but they haven't told us what it is yet". How's that for planning! ;)

    That will be another waiting game as well.
