    I will be coming and staying (I live local).

    I haven't decided for sure wether it will be Old Key West or Animal Kingdom Lodge

    I don't drink, but might hang out depending on what I have going on...super excited to see/meet people. :)

    I just made hotel reservations for myself and my friend at the All Stars for Thus 8/24-Sun 8/27. So I guess I'm a go! *Crossing fingers I get this summer job to help fund the trip*. I'm actually making reservations for Chefs de Paris right now, since my friend has never been and it's my favorite WDW restaurant. Can't wait to see you all there (at the event)!

    Meeeeeeeeee! My sister and I are going! I am so excited to see so many familiar names that are going/returning. I looooooove trading with nice ppl. I think we are staying at the Boardwalk. The last two years there was late night trading in the Boardwalk lobby. It was really fun.

    I am not a drinker, but I have been thinking about the poutine in Canada since last year. And Tessa: Canadian Shirley Temples for you and me!

    You can mark me (and my friend Pin Hound) as going! We'll probably be trading/organizing pins/chilling at the resort most of the day Thursday, but will be there at the event at the crack of dawn! Can't wait to see you all!

    I'm all booked! I arrive Thursday afternoon and staying at All-Star Music. After event check-in I was planning on heading to AK to check out Pandora for the evening. Friday after the event I'm heading over to MNSSHP at MK if anyone else is going. I'm also down for the eat/drink around the world challenge after the event Saturday... a margarita (for those that partake) and ride on the Gran Fiesta Tour with the Three Caballeros is a must along the way!

    I'll be there from Thursday to Monday, staying at AK. Open for any meet ups, plus I'd love to be included in any sharing of tables - I'll be there on my own, so I'd like to be able to switch off to visit the trading boards.

    I've only been to the annual event once before ('13' event), but I remember there was an informal trading night in the food court of one of the resorts. Does anyone know if there will be one again this year? I made lots of great trades that night!

    For those of you staying on Disney property and checking in on Thursday, 8/24, you're able to book Fast Passes today. I was on right at 7:00 AM (ET) and there were no Avatar: Flight of Passage FP+ available at any time between Thursday and Sunday! So, waiting in long lines it is... :eek: Managed to get a lunch break Soarin one day and MNSSHP at MK Friday evening.

    Maybe WDW will extend it's extra magic hours (11 pm to 1 am) until August for Animal Kingdom for resort guests?

    Good luck!

    If Anyone attending the MNSSH Party can pickup a Halloween Sorcerer of the MK card for Haunted JR, she will trade a pin for it. She collects the cards and we do not attend the MNSSH party. We will both be at LIAA to trade. Thanks

    As long as it's not Lion King, Robin Hood, Inside Out, Zootopia, or Fix-it Felix, then I'd be willing to. (I don't actively collect SoTMK, but I do have a few that go with my pin collections.) I wish we knew what it was going to be now!

    I'm wondering if it will be something from Coco, since the movie is coming out in November and the Dia de los Muertos theme fits perfectly with Halloween.

    I'm going Friday night and can pick one up. Post a reminder and we can coordinate.

    Which reminds me, do participants from DPF wear name tags to identify our user names or does everyone wander around going "whooooo are you?"

    They originally had evening EMH posted but then everything switched to 9:00 PM closing last week. Hopefully they'll update the schedule before but odd that in August, which is busy season, has every park closing at 9:00 PM.

    I (and a few other DPFers) am going on Friday, too. (I am so excited to finally see the Hocus Pocus show in person!)

    At the trade event, I plan to wear distinctive headwear (custom Inside Out Mickey ears and my homemade Robin Hood hat), and will be wearing one of the name buttons David made for me for his parties. So I should hopefully be easy to spot.

    I'd be more than happy to design a button for anyone who would like one! Unfortunately the arts and crafts center at our student union is under construction, so my access to a button machine is MIA, but there are also those "make a button" packs you can easily pick up from craft stores.

    I will be going with my sister and a friend whose main job is to get big shiny pins off the trading boards. We will be staying at Boardwalk and hope to get to DAK on Thursday and MNSSHP on Friday. Sorry to hear there are no more fast passes for FOP.
