WoD is no longer trading?! When did this go into effect? I can sort of understand why, it’s such a small thing compared to everything else going on in the store.

So just got back from DisneyWorld and was very disappointed with the state of vinylmation trading…especially at Downtown Disney: The Pin Traders location had a black DIY in the visible trading case and I mystery traded in Once Upon a Toy and received a marked up, terrible looking cutester that was definitely not trade worthy. I said something to the lady but she looked to be nearly 70 and wasn’t worth arguing with. I also found a black DIY at a trading station in the Magic Kingdom. What’s going on??? I would have been ultra-pissed if I had gotten a… Read more »

Sounds like Vinylmation trading is going by the way of pin trading…..CMs will take anything. The CYO (clear, colored Create Your Owns) are not supposed to be taken in trade, by definition, because they do not have the Vinylmation stamping info on the bottom. That’s a pretty simple test right there. The people trading in the CYOs are not kids and visitors to the parks, but the regulars that try to “work the system” for their own benefit or to profit. I used to love trading pins with CMs until there were more scrappers on a lanyard than real pins.… Read more »

Went to Downtown Disney yesterday. Confirm that trading locations are at D-Street and Pin Traders. At D-Street you need to give up your vinylmation before choosing 2 number from the mystery box – one by one. If you don’t like what you get from the first number you choose, you can choose the 2nd number but you can’t go back to choose the first figure you get from the 1st try, and that requires you to keep the 2nd one (you can’t get your traded vinylmation back).

Very disappointed that we have invested thousands of dollars in vinylmations and now Disney does not support it like they did when we gave them all our money. My kids adore doing this and we are highly limited now. I feel cheated and will purchase no more.
