    But what if all of the catalogue is Little Brother, Khan, and Mushu? And the welcome gift will be a jumbo of the panda that Mushu rides to deliver the message! Then you'll definitely need two sets! ;)

    Then I will give you daily updates of everything that goes wrong. :eek::confused:
    My ex-bosses wife had a word when something didn't work out. She called it Bruceluck. (yes, that's a word)

    Thank you! That is the perfect example of Bruceluck! I didn't see your post until I had entered mine.
    Then we would have to change it to Krandluck....... :D

    Some info is up on Disney Pins Blog. @watzshakinbacon

    Not the registration date, but it has some good info. Pascal collectors may find the theme of the scavenger hunt interesting.

    New info up on Disneypinsblog now. The RSP pins and the registration dates. Rumor is the DLR is already sold out. Sorry, this info is actually about the PTN.

    If anyone needs someone to sponsor, I've been given the OK to do that. PM me for details if you're interested.

    There is a post about the May Up Anniversary PTN with dates and pins. Under the Fairy Tales link on the page, there is info about that event.

    Gotcha! Saw the updated info earlier; just waiting (not so patiently) for the registration date and catalog.

    So $125 after the gift card. Wasn’t it $130 prior years? Did they actually lower the price? That can’t be right.

    Glad to see the auction again. I always enjoy seeing those. No breakfast again. Guess that’s probably gone for good.

    It was $150 and you got a $30 gift card.

    Man, I missed the breakfast by a year, since LIAA was my first WDW trade event. I was hoping it would be back this year. At least the silent auction will be back (though I'm afraid how much the lots will go for!)

    The scavenger hunt sounds fun!

    Used to be a $30 gift card. I think it was $35 a couple years back.

    The gift card thing is really annoying. It originally started because they offered two $15 Food & Beverage vouchers with the event. When gift cards became a thing, they switched to that rather than paper vouchers only good for food. So the GC was supposed to cover the cost of two lunches (of course, everyone just uses it on pins, lol.) And it's not like lunch at Epcot has dropped in price.

    That makes sense. I wondered how that got started.

    Once Disney started the Event Gift Card, it was always $30. The overall Event Price, however, has been steadily increasing over the years.

    Disney must be thinking that $150 is probably the max they can charge (without enhancing the Event) so, they have decreased the Gift card by $5 to net more $$$ from us! :(

    What are the items for the silent auction? Also, are they bidding money (not pins, I assume)? If it’s money, is it cash or they take credit card?

    Won’t be making it after all. Will be looking to sponsor someone though. Maybe next year...we are focusing funds for a solid trip at DLR for Star Wars land.

    From what I remember reading of past events, it's things like framed sets, AP pin sets, older pins, and I think other merchandise. It's a money auction, and I would assume they accept credit cards since I don't think they would expect people to be carrying around hundreds or thousands in cash in the hopes that they win an auction.

    The gift card value going down and therefore the ultimate event cost going up sure makes more sense than the other way! :D

    The auctions are large sets of framed pins, usually around a theme. For example, last year one of them was Haunted Mansion and there were I think three frames with about 50 pins or so. The pins tend to be mostly lower LE and are almost all AP/PP. They do take credit cards but the bidding gets pretty high. Think $thousands. But just seeing the sets is a lot of fun. And it doesn't cost anything to put in a low price bid at the beginning just for the fun of it.

    I can't wait to see the catalog. My niece and sister who trades are super excited for the scavenger hunt. Even my sister who doesn't trade likes this year's theme.
