    Isn't the same day/night as room hopping for the disneyana convention? Do they still do room hopping?

    Oh dang, I realized that this is the Saturday of Gay Days so I might be doing that with a friend instead. Not sure if we’re doing it Saturday or Sunday, though.

    My "haul," lol. Well, I made it for the last hour and a half, I think. I was happy to find another pin trader who exclaims aloud when they see certain pins. I'm not alone!!!! :D
    But it's so fun to see all the pins in person that I've only seen pictures, and to see pins I've never seen before. Saw a giant Gummi Bears pin that reminded me of Teddy_Ruxpin, a skeleton dance for Skelecountry... Does anyone else get reminded of certain members like that? :)
    I saw Darice and Melody too, had a quick chat. Always nice when my memory decides to work for me instead of against me!

    As an aside, it was announced at the end that the next pin event held there would be May 30-31, with room-hopping allowed again!! (Did I get those dates right?)

    My HUGE HAUL is below. I'm so jazzed to have scored the pop-up M for my friend!!! She will no longer just be ICKEY. :D
    Giants for my sis-in-law, Chip and Dale and a cute Minnie for me! I'm a minor league trader, and I'm so happy that these events have "little pins" for trade along with the $$$ stuff. The second pics are some inexpensive pins I bought for park traders-it was time to restock![​IMG][​IMG]

    What is room hopping? And why was it not allowed?

    It's not allowed at Disneyana anymore.
    But if it's the same thing, then people open up their hotel rooms to sell or trade. Maybe it's for overflow people that don't get tables?

    I have only been to one event at a hotel with room-hopping, but it was pretty cool. In addition to the trader tables, some attendees set up stuff for sale in their rooms. There was a sign in the lobby listing all the rooms participating, and then signs on each floor by the main elevators listing rooms on that floor that were open. Some rooms were just pins, all laid out. Some were a mix of pins and other disneyana. There were sellers with a small amount of stuff, and one that had opened up the door between two rooms that were filled with things. I've seen plushies, dolls, clothes, blankets, memorabilia, vintage Disney books, jewelry, scarves, hand-made, etc., etc. I think some were people that just brought along their own stuff they were ready to part with. The prices for things were pretty reasonable, for the most part. I really, really enjoyed it!

    Congratulations @LadyBarclay on your success. I saw that M and thought, ah shucks...I might have found one too.

    Alas, I was stuck at home fighting a blasted Cough. I am hopeful, as of this writing..I think I am winning. Sunshine the last two days and 4 cups of decaffeinated green tea today.

    So, what did everyone get?

    @starry_solo, @CanaDaLE (here's hoping your visit was great; Sorry I missed you) @pincrazy, @TheMickeyMouseRules what did you all score this past weekend?

    Between DPTWW, and Disneyana...I am anticipating some good pin haul pictures.
