    I'm gonna pre-book 2 weeks including Aug 24th off work next week , it's been around that date for a while . Discovered i can do 14 days for around the same price :) 4 years between visits seems long enough ;)

    Oh, you total bum, haha! I don't want to go to WDW in August next year (I'm hoping for December if anything). I hate to miss a chance to meet you but really hope this works out for you. It's a really fun theme!!! :D

    There is a chance it could be in July since D23 is August this year. So don't go too crazy just yet.

    The Sorcerer Package is amazing! We had it at last year’s expo.

    I’m not going. Just my friend, but she can shop for me at MOG. So she’ll get all the fun and I get all the bills, lol.

    I didn't recognize any of the names for the grand prize. Although I don't know everyone's real name either.

    Man, if they move it to July I might be out. Between the crowds and the heat, not sure I am dedicated enough. I’m very much hoping they go in the other direction. I love WDW in the fall.

    The heat in Florida in July is the same heat in southern Louisiana in July. It's hot. I'd be okay with September. I'm just glad they posted this teaser.

    Here’s my haul from day two. First pic is board pulls. Other than my wife’s brief flirtation with Maui, they are all AP other than Jafar who is PP. I definitely feel they had more APs on the board than in prior years. Or maybe I just had better luck! I’m especially psyched about the villains vault pins. Note that I have a second Chernabog if anyone wants to trade for Maleficent or Queen of Hearts.

    Not as much trading today, but got a few things that are in the second pic. Only things from CMs are the surfboard and Stitch.

    It was GREAT meeting everyone! See you all next year!

    What great finds on the boards! It's nice to find several pins from the same set or series. Congrats on all new acquisitions.

    Our board pulls for today. So all through the event I kept seeing the Cheshire restroom DLR HM completer. And I kept wanting to take it, but there were always other priorities. Final board was a little thinner than the rest in terms of obvious LE AP pins. With 10 seconds left, on my final trade I noticed it and quickly made a change. These were the best event boards I've ever experienced. Such a good time.

    And I finally met up with @khossler who helped me complete my monorail set with the Orange Bird and traded a HM completer macaron too! And made a couple "in line" trades to complete my Kingdom of Cute 2 set and get closer with BatB tsums. And I traded the extra Cruella from yesterday for a Resort Holiday present.

    And with that our 2018 Animation Celebration is done. Tomorrow and Monday, we are doing Universal, and then a lot of vacation Disney park madness.

    Did anyone by any chance pull the Maui completer pin at the event and is willing to trade? I have a handful of completers. Also have other pins to trade too. Please help a desperate Moana collector. (It’s the only one I didn’t get ) [​IMG]

    Good times had by all today except for the fact that it looks like I lost my second Skeleton Dance pin. AJK traded me one, then someone else traded me another. Anyone find one, possibly on red foam?

    Nice haul! That Judy notebook wouldn't be available for trade by any chance, would it? ;)
