Extended Hours for November 2 WDW Trade Night

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Update: 11/01/12 Since we first brought you this news about extended hours, the Vinylmation Events page has re affirmed the 4-9pm trading hours and the apparent use of all the Ballrooms (plural). Again we ask why? A good thing for sure, but is it just for extra room or some kind of entertainment, artist signing or release? I’m also thinking maybe a larger mobile store with on sale Vinyls to sell off extra D-Street inventory?

We have been waiting since Mickey’s Circus four the Walt Disney World’s next trading night on November 2nd, and according to Disney’s pin blog, the hours have been extended to give guests two extra hours of trading! The event will now take place from 4-9pm at the Contemporary Resort. As always, these bi-monthly trading nights are FREE to all guests and select Vinylmation and Pins should be on sale. This is the first time I’ve seen the hours extended like this. I wish the extension went an hour or two later as opposed to earlier. Due to work, the extension doesn’t help me, but will you be getting there earlier to trade? Will you try to make it the entire five hours? Come early, take a break and go back for the end? Just so you know this was not a misprint, they specifically called out the time extension:

“In order to provide more hours of fun, we are starting the November 2nd pin trading night event at 4:00pm!”

Also of note, and this one may be a misprint, they say the event will take place at: “Disney’s Contemporary Resort – Fantasia A-G Ballroom.” A-G? Are they extending the trading space for us?

I haven’t been to one of these trading nights before, but I have been to the annual Pin event in September. Will there be Disney pin trading boards/games, like at the pin events, or is it mostly just pin/vinyl trading amongst fans?

And if I don’t get there early/when it opens, will all the good pins basically be gone, or do they rotate the pin trading boards out every once in a while? Thanks.

I heard Disney was toying with the idea of changing the name of the bi-monthly events to “WDW Trade Afternoons.” The longer name will allow them to sell a larger PTA pin for a higher price. LOL

Well, now that the evening is over….. I liked the extra time, BUT I agree I think it should have gone later instead of starting at 4. Even if they split it by starting at 5 and going to 10, that would have been great! All in all, a great trade night without the rush of only 3 hours to get through all the tables in the room! lol AWESOME to see everyone there! :)
