  • Fri, 12:13: Line stretches way back toward Intnatl Gate. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 12:53: First trip through line was maybe 10 min, as we were at front. K back in line at 8:35. She picked 2 of 2014 Christmas resort pins.
  • Fri, 13:04: First picks good! Minnie is LE 500--last years breakfast pin. Figment is LE 100, PP (pre-production). #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 13:17: Halfway through line for turn #2...we lost position when the board easel fell before Ks turn. Now 20 people behind guy who was beside us.
  • Fri, 13:38: Looks like most will get 2 board turns during breakfast. Don't think anyone will get 3. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 13:59: Back in line at a couple of minutes before 10, so close to 1.5 hours in the line for a turn. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 14:03: Second picks. Goofy feels fake--is 2007 and says LE 1500, not AP/PP. will research. Zero is Limited Release, AP.
  • Fri, 14:06: Changed the procedure--cast member moved to end of line at 10, everyone in front doesn't have to use a tab for that turn.
  • Fri, 14:30: CM at board started to require tags, but Doug who is marking the end of the 'free trade' group straightened her out. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 14:35: So with change in procedure we'll get 3 rounds on the breakfast no-tab period, waiting in lines for traditional boards. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 14:37: Others did shorter trading box line with smaller pin selection, cycled more times during breakfast. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 14:56: Rumor is that a line at the back has 2 boards, rest have 1. If true, question is, is that line less than 2x as long? We may give it a try.
  • Fri, 15:51: Took break to watch end of slideshow in upcoming pins, announcement of next years event, "Pixar Party". Switched to double board line 11:48
  • Fri, 16:18: Think the Monsters U was someone else's trader, the Pluto is from last years event and is AP. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 16:19: K pulled the same Pluto pin but not AP. LE size is 1100.
  • Fri, 17:07: Back in line at 1:00, hour+ at the double-board line. Will be tight to use remaining 3 tabs if lines slow down. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 17:15: Pirates pin is LE 2000. Squid is 20000 Leagues Under the Sea, completer #2 fr something, LE 100 and AP. Good trader! #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 17:15:
  • Fri, 18:26: Line took ~ 75 min. Figment is nothing special but I don't think I have it. Lumiere is LE 900 and AP. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 19:15: "Davy Crockett" part of soundtrack playing @ #GenEARationD --in my '60s childhood we about wore out that record. Suspect Mother hated it...
  • Fri, 19:37: Back in line at 3:30. Figment is older Hidden Mickey I wanted. Mickeys Caramels is LE 1000 AP. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 20:42: Back in line at 4:35. I've used all my tabs, Paula gave Krissi an extra. Lines will be cut off at 5 for last traders to enter. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 20:45: Pretty good run--Coronado Springs Xmas 2007 is LE 750. Mickey dog tag is LE 1000 AP. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 20:47: Also managed to trade in line w someone who had the last Paint The Night pin (Belle) I needed for my set from Disneyland. #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 21:10: Gave place and tab to Paula who will be allowed to use her 3 remaining tabs in one go with 30 sec more time (90 sec total) #GenEARationD
  • Fri, 21:39: Hiked to Beach Club debating morning strategy--try to be in first few for best selection once at least? Don't stress and hope for a refresh?
  • Sat, 03:51: Evening spent getting K to see a doctor then to drug store. Woke with swelling on one side of jaw, might be recurrence of infection in Aug.
  • Sat, 03:53: Beach Club Concierge provided brochure for nearby Urgent Care, Google led us to closest CVS. Then stopped by Art of Animation food court.
  • Sat, 03:55: Tandoori chicken, roasted cauliflower w tomato, spinach and paneer, multigrain pilaf, naan - Art of Animation
  • Sat, 03:57: AoA food is pretty good, but ordering and cashiers were a madhouse at 9 PM. Not sure the food is worth the stress.
  • Sat, 04:01: Back to room and some labeling and organizing of pins. K found that a couple more of hers are Artists Proofs. #GenEARationD
  • Sat, 04:02: Tomorrow the event doesn't start until 9:30 so we don't need to rush, may get breakfast at bakery in France first. #GenEARationD
  • Sat, 04:04: Got a connection to a private pin-trading gathering Sunday 12-6 pm of NJ pin traders, and will attend. $10 each for room rental, not bad.
  • Sat, 04:05: Hope the private event will be better for 1-on-1 trading, can spread out pin binders on tables and see what pins you like.
  • Sat, 04:24: Fitbit report, 8016 steps, 3.37 miles. You don't travel far in pin-trading lines.
