Fellow Vinylmation collectors are sharing their Disney Store Experiences below. Join in the conversation… send us some pictures of trading at your area Disney Store!

Disney Stores accross the country are now getting into the spirit of trading Vinylmation. Over the past few weeks, the trading boxes were shipped all accross the country and today marks the first official day of trading at Disney Stores. As of right now, just clear box trading at the stores, no big mystery boxes. Trading, weather it be Vinylmation or Pins, is an essential part of the guest interaction that makes Disney so special. It is great to see trading in the stores. In fact, The Playwright in New York, NY sent us these pics from the Times Square Disney Store:

Big Baby! Good to see things are consistent both at the Parks and Stores.
The Playwrite traded his Cutesters Too Tiger Kid for the Fairy Godmother.

Christopher from Indiana 
Here in northwest Indiana, the Merrilville store had three figures in an open box. I was the first one in the store and the first to trade. I traded a rain coat girl from cutesters 2 for a queen bee from Urban 6. It was open box of 3. There were no special or exclusive figures and the cast members said they had not been sent anything special from Disney for the trading boxes. Hopefully if trading goes well, Disney will expand the in store trading.
Tyler from Colorado – 
I brought my Big Baby to trade of course…. and the cast member said one of her co-workers was wanting that one! I guess out here in the middle of the country Big Baby is wanted!

JT from NJ –
Freehold NJ store had a Woody (in the clear box!)

Tyler C from Colorado
I stopped by the Disney store today with Big Baby and Dodger in hand to trade. I traded the two for Lotso and Radcliffe. They did have the card with Lotso, so guessing he may have been one of the Vinyls they put in the case originally. I asked the Cast Member if they had many people trading, she said not many, more people were asking her what they were.
