    Hey gang! As per my previous announcement, WDW park pickups will be shifting from full-scale lists to a week-by-week lotto system. Please be sure to read the instructions/rules so that your requests are correct and honored. :)


    How it Works:
    Unless otherwise noted, each week on Monday morning, I’ll post what pins (if any) are available for requests and how many I expect to have available (usually between 1-3). The only pins you are able to requests are the ones listed in the Open for Requests section below. You cannot pre-request pins for future weeks. Requests will be open from that Monday until Wednesday evening around 9pm EST. After that, I’ll randomize the list and put you guys in pick-up order so you’ll have a good idea of your chances and can plan accordingly. Please keep “drop-offs” (where you drop off the list) at a minimum until Thursday afternoon.

    You can view the entire month’s flyer here, but remember only the pins posted below are available for requests.


    Payments:
    Invoices will go out Thursday afternoon or Friday morning. You will have 72 hours from the time of your invoice to pay or arrange payment or you will receive a “Strike”. Three strikes in a 6 month period means your requests will no longer be honored. Lagging payments and “ghosted” requests were the biggest problem and headache in past years, so please try to pay timely. If you need more time, simply let me know—that counts as “arranging” payment. :)

    Cost will be: Retail* + Total Tax on your order + $1 surcharge per pin + shipping** (+ paypal fees if sent as goods rather than gift).

    **Shipping is $3.75 for US shipping for the first pin, then $0.50 per additional pin. (Orders including jumbos, box sets, or unopened mystery boxes may incur additions shipping charges). I’m happy to hold pins for the entire month to save on shipping if you are selected for multiple pins.

    **FOR INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be sure to mention this in your comments so that you get the correct invoice the first time. Shipping just a few pins to Europe and overseas is often a whopping $15!! Canada is often a more moderate $9. Be aware, this is not my price, but USPS, and your exact shipping cost will be calculated based on the weight of the package. I can ship out international orders quarterly (so every 3 months) to try and maximize that shipping. Honestly, since you’re not guaranteed pickups from this lotto, that’s a bit risky for the cost, so just keep that in mind when you’re requesting.

    *Retail costs are estimations only based on past releases. I’m pretty good at predicting it, but be aware costs (especially for mystery boxes, box sets, or jumbos) may change significantly from the estimation.


    Shipping:
    All domestic orders will ship out at the end of the month unless you indicate otherwise and would like it shipped out earlier. No domestic orders will be held over from month to month.


    Pin(s) Available for Requests:
    Requests begin on post #29.
    Requests for Minnie Rock the Dots and FotA pins will be open until Thursday 1/17 around 9pm EST.

    *These types of event pins have historically been in the $14.99 price point range. But since regular LE pins have moved up to $17.99 retail, I'm not sure what that will mean for these styles. As soon as I hear, I'll update it. As for the Availability number, it will depend on if there's a second kiosk with pins (which there usually is). I'll update on Friday. :)



    Please be aware that my availability, the amount of pins I can pick up, and the days on which I go to the park are all subject to change. I’ll do my utmost to stay on schedule and update you guys should anything change. This pickup lotto is a work in progress and may be tweaked as the months go on. The #1 rule is stay in communication if you have a question or concern.

    Awards Ledger:
    This is where I’ll keep track of the month’s allotments for the sake of my own bookkeeping and so you can keep track of your order as well. :) This will just stay up for month to month, so international members should maintain a list for yourself as well. :)

    Since I have to do a lot of running around tomorrow for the remaining December pickups, there's a VERY safe chance I'll actually get all four of these. I'll post once I have them in hand. :)

    Once I get the pins, please keep an eye out for an invoice tomorrow evening or Saturday morning. :)

    Here are the results for the randomizer:

    [​IMG]

    There's a solid chance I'll get the fourth Console pin. I'll let you guys know as soon as I have it in hand.

    There weren't enough Mickey requests to warrant a randomizer, so we should be good there. :) if for some reason I can't get all three of them, I'll do one each, or randomize if I (somehow?) only get one.
