    Super disappointed by the pins at this event. The ones released were pretty “meh” compared to what they’ve been putting out lately. And then no framed sets, leftovers etc? Lame. And it seems everyone who got the Mickey through the Years pins got all of them. I didn’t see anyone who had one set. It was always all 12 or none. Oh well. Better luck next time.

    Home from the D23 Destination D WDW Event - Mickey's 90th Birthday celebration. Keeping the comments strictly to the PIN topic, nothing on the presentations. Picked up our RSP pins Friday during the early registration time frame for the Event. Pin pickup area was clearly displayed and on another floor from the main event. Went into the pin room, showed some identification, and was out of there in UNDER 5 minutes!! FINALLY they seem to have this figured out utilizing the RSP process!! NO 2 hours wait in a line, no 2 hour wait in the MOG store to checkout, no drama or problems at all!!

    Give credit when credit is due, they just might have this fixed once and for all! I did not see any pins in the MOG store, or any framed sets or CA leftovers.

    great news @figment919

    Did anyone attend the actual event? Was it worth it? There was someone at yesterday's Pinsgiving who had already been to Destination D and flew back Saturday!

    Also evidently there was a "Destination D CM Only" WDI/MOG store release yesterday. Robin Hood anniversary, Bugs Life, Thanksgiving topics. Can't complain since WDW CM's get a shot at some MOG stuff. At least it was held separately from the D23 Event over the weekend.

    Starry, about the event topics and presentations. If someone came to the event and flew back Saturday they must have missed most of the fantastic presentations. Since it was Mickey and Minnie's 90th birthday the event really took a deep dive into both characters, lots of stuff from the Disney archives was there, great upfront presentation of all new things happening in ALL of the Parks and so on. Saturday night was a first time presentation from the musical team of "Mary Poppins Returns" - great insights and excellent topic. Sunday night there was a "pajama party" with cupcakes, deserts, and a DJ, also old Mickey cartoons playing on multiple video screens.

    The D23 Destination D events are so much more than "pins at the MOG store". If you are a Disney historian and like many facts and stories about Disney stuff the Event is well worth the money. We were not disappointed at all.
