Vinylmation Help!!

I need help. I've ordered some vinylmations on the Disneystore site so my kids can trade them when we go in December. I just ordered 10 of the same ones so the kids can basically have the fun of trading them like they do their pins. Could anyone please tell me or give me the site that shows the all areas at Disneyworld where they trade these? Also, does anyone have any favorite spots where they traded or are they all pretty much the same? Thank you so much!!

Not sure where the maps are, but Vinylnation.net is a good place to start to look.

From experience, the Art of Disney on Main Street has a blind box. The shop that acts as the dump store for Stitch's Great Escape and is next to the ice cream shop has a blind box. The store in Frontierland that sells pins also has a blind box. That's all I can think of off the top of my head. As of Memorial Day the shop at the end of Space Mountain had their blind box removed.

Thank you very much!! One more question if you don't mind...for the stores that trade-do some just have a blind box, glass case, or both?

Yes.

Some stores just have the open (clear boxes). Some have just the blind box. Some have both.

We had a dozen traders in February. We took three a day in our park bag and traded as we went. That way, if we went to eat at a resort, and there was a trader box, we could trade then too. If it was one we already had or didn't care for, it was just fodder for further trading.

It seems as though different cast members have different 'rules' and vary on how strict they are.

Thanks again. A good number would be to take 3 a piece then for the kids? I'm planning to maybe go to one park in the morning and a different one at night. The'll also be pin trading I'm sure.

New stuff coming...

Yesterday my wife wanted to go to the public day of a D23 event at WDW. She and her friend wanted to get the new "Empress Lilly" 9". While we were there, I took some pics...



The next Christmas 3 inch...


The new 2011 Food & Wine vinyl... (yawn)...


Thought the new "shapes" and additions were neat. Figment has a clear plastic space helmet!


To the left of the mustard at the bottom is a tribute to "Kitchen Kabaret"


Interesting new collection of "Alice in Wonderland"


The art from "Alice"


New 9 inchers!

OMG love the Christmas Goofy!!!!

The new F&W one does look a little boring....

I did see some of the previews for new Animation and Park 7 during D23 Expo ans definitely going to collect those.

Not too sure about the Alice in Wonderland. and I have refused to get 9inchers, just because! LOL! Tho, I did pick up the NYC ones.

Thanks for posting!

So DBF and I first became interested in Vinylmations back in 2009. On our trip to WDW, we bought a bunch and brought them back as souvenirs for friends and family. But we didn't get any for ourselves. Since then, we love looking at the different designs whenever we go to WDW or our local Disney Store. But we never got into collecting them... until now!

That's right... I've given in and started collecting Vinylmations! And I'm completely addicted!

And while DBF isn't interested in collecting them for himself, he is at least interested in my new addiction! Whenever I buy new ones, he's always curious to see what I get!

I love the Alice ones.

Here are the ones we got recently (two weeks ago) while at WDW


Viking 9"


Kermit 9"


Good Luck Bad Luck Key Chains


Magick Kingdom and the black one has rides from all of the parks on it


Muppets - we decided to try to complete the muppet series collection. Although I just wanted Janice and we never got her yet


More Muppets - at least we got Miss Piggy from Pigs in Space


Epcot


German and France flags

This is only about half of what we bought/acquired through trading. I didnt take pictures of all them.

We are going to turn our closet/dressing room into a Disney themed room so we need to get shelves for all of the Vinyls, etc to sit on. So then I'll take pics of the whole collection.

Great pictures from the event! I love that Philharmagic one. Awesome.

Tinkerboy, you got some nice pick-ups. I like the one with the park icons all over it. I'm tempted to get that one when I go in October (along with a bunch of other ones...).

Hi All!

If any of you are interested....

Help

My favorite Disney movie is Pete's Dragon. I saw one of these on line, and did not buy it. Thought I would get it when I was in the world in May of last year. Could not find it. Does anyone know where I could pick this one up. Thanks

I know they still had 9" Elliot Vinyls when I was there over Memorial Day. And I am pretty sure I saw some in California over Labor Day. They aren't on the DisneyStore.com any longer?
