    Your links aren't working for me, but someone mentioned to me yesterday that odpt.com is gone which is very sad as that housed at least the past few years' worth of pin release flyers for the parks. And now that page is gone, so where do we find flyers or the event information for the annual event?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I'll call event services on Monday to see what they say.

    I had the page bookmarked and checked it regularly. My bookmark is now redirected to:
    {{ metaTag.socialTitle || metaTag.title}}
    "Shop Disney Parks"
    There are currently some limited edition pins listed for sale, but when I clicked on one of the figment pins, the item it says item only available in the parks.
    Not a good replacement for us since the old site told us what was upcoming, but probably will make Disney more money.

    I inputted odpt.com 5 times thinking I was clearly spelling it wrong despite probably never spelling it wrong in the last decade. Sigh Disney....

    Bummer!! The site was good for Event information and what was going to happen down the road. I guess that's why they never updated the Pin Event information on the banner page from last August. A little heads-up would have been nice. If they don't come up with a replacement we are lost in the woods for pin information

    If I can't constantly refresh ODPT all day, what will I do with myself at the end of each month? Work my job and care for my children? Pfft.

    ^ Yup. That's how I feel about all the history lost with that page gone. :(

    I have a lot of stuff saved, because of the last time they deleted their pin stuff. Not that it helps anyone else. For those that are familiar with searching for stuff on the Internet Archive, this link should help, but you may have to sort through a bunch of junk to find the blog posts that are useful.

    ^ Still heartbreaking. Probably second biggest loss of straight-up info to DizPins' loss. Well, no, PinPics was a big loss, too, when that stopped being comprehensive and now is just... a vestige of its former self.

    The oldtimers now ARE the history of this hobby. Thanks goodness a few are still around. But very few. :(

    I keep my records up to date, but those are strictly for Wonderland and nothing else.

    I imagine there will be a blog post on the main Disney Parks Blog in the Merchandise section, with a link to the registration page and catalog.

    UPDATE: Event services has informed me that the site will be back online in about a week. They are working on issues they were having with the site and were told when it is back, it will be similar to the old site and contain a pin section (fingers crossed). Maybe they'll bring back the database like they had at eventservices.disney.go.com/pintrading/ .

    Hmmmm....Odd that they didn't put a "Pardon our dust, under construction, go here in the meantime" link. But that's just my suspicious side talking. I hope that side is way off!

    Yeah, I questioned why they would take something down without having something else ready. Their reply was that they were having too many issues with things not working properly and would have something back in about a week. Mind you, this was the non-technical people answering the questions by what they were told by the technical people. I'm suspicious as well and expect it will take them longer, if ever at all.

    Just got an update today. Web site is still down and they are working on it. Event Services told me that there will be a plan B from the technical department if the site is not back online by the 04/24 for the Animation Celebration registration. If that is the case, there would most likely be an announcement on the Blog.
