Q:woahhhh all the asks my eyes hurt *_*
I used to get nervous that this blog had to many of them on here, but I have come to learn that it’s one of the things that people really enjoy about this blog. The discussions are almost always on some sort of Disney related topic and I feel like I get to interact with you guys better! So sorry if you don’t like the asks, but as I have said before if you want to avoid them simply go to the main site and type DYKD to look for all the facts!
Q:why do cm have fake ones?
Because Cm’s have to accept whatever you trade them, and since a lot of people do get pins from unofficial sources more often than not they tend to be fake.
Q:I started collecting pins when I started working at WDW, and now I have over 400 and a serious problem.
Sounds like a solution.
Q:I feel stupid for asking, because I know I've seen the answer to this, I just can't find it though. Anyways, how are the crowds in late September? I've always heard they were kind of slow because everyone is back in school, but I know that's when WDW starts it's Halloween stuff, so I'm not sure what to think.
Super manageable! September is in such a nice spot for the parks, the summer tourists are gone and the weather is far more managable.
Q:With pin trading, I want to start and will be doing it entirely from online. There's a HUGE pin trading network on Instagram!
OH I haven’t heard of that before? See that is cool!!
Q:Cast members' lanyards are often FILLED with fakes. I would suggest going to thedisneypincollector because she has a lot of info on how to spot fakes. She says to always ask a CM to touch their pin before trading.
Yeah I recently just read all of the ways to tell if there are fakes, the waffle print on the back is usually the best bet.
Q:Another tip for pin collecting, is look to see what the cast members have on them. They HAVE to trade you if you request it. At least they do in the California parks :]
I think the rule is the same over in the florida parks! Trading is encouraged.
Q:Hi! So Pin lots can be cool, but if it's a really good price chances are the pins are fake. Now, Disney employees will never turn down a trade, but I wouldn't recommend spreading fake pins around to regular guests. So, just be careful :)
OH yeah I heard about that, so I am making sure they are legit!
Q:Pin collecting and trading is so much fun! I have 3 pin suitcases that I bought at Disney World filled with all kinds of pins. Once you start it's never ending, especially when you want to trade. One worker at Disney World didn't want to trade me pins and it took me forever to finally convince him even though I thought they weren't allowed to deny you a trade :/ have fun!
He must have been giving you a hard time on purpose, because I am pretty sure they are supposed to take whatever you want to trade with them. I am almost positive they are even given pins just to have on incase a guest wants to trade and that they have to return those pins, at least that’s how my friend who worked there described it.
Q:To the anon about the confessions blog: The confessions box opens only when the blog says it does, if you try to send it in through the ask box it'll be deleted. Keep a close watch on the blog itself, I hope that helped!!
Q:you have to wait until they open their asks. Although I wouldn't bother since they seem to cherry pick
Ah well there you go anon!
Q:Quick tip: If you're just starting off your collection, start with a cheap pin lot from eBay for traders.
I was going to do that! Then i enter the park and scavenge and trade!
Q:Do you know how to send in a confession in to the Walt Disney Confessions blog?
? Not my blog or jurisdiction. So I can’t really help ya there.
Q:Do you have any other mediums?
Instagram which I need to update, but I am considering a youtube channel.
Think I am going to start collecting and trading pins.
