My DS started last trip to DL. He wants all the ride pins. He only has 8 currently. He loves to look at them all on his lanyard hanging in his room. Happy pinning!!!

Here are a few of my pin boards. . .

My favorite one (yes, I made it)


The first one we made. . .


The second design was obvious


CM Exclusive pins, well, the board I made. . .it is full now, just don't have a picture of it.


This is just the tip of the iceberg. My wife won't let me make any more boards.

This is not about pin trading in the parks, so I've moved this thread to the Disney Collectors board.

I'm going to politely disagree that Cheshire Cat is not a villan .

He came with an LE set. I know he's not technically a villain, however, he was been associated with them. Look at Villains & Vogue.

I love the idea of putting pins on corkboards; I'd never thought of doing that!

I plan on getting one pin for every attraction and one pin for every resort we stay at and one pin for every princess.

My primary focus has been on Haunted Mansion and I also look for Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella pins along with their villians.

I also like to get pins for any events like Food and Wine, Flower and Garden, MNSSHP, MVMCP events that I attend. And as long as I have an AP I try to get all of the AP pins from that year.

So I currently have 6 pin boards. They are made with 16x20 paint canvas that I stretched a brown velvet like material on and put my pins on that. It matches my bedroom where the pin boards are hung.

I also have one large size pin book that is half filled.

Here are pics of 2:

How do you display your pins when you're not at the parks?

Do you categorize them by movie? Character? Collection? Color? Size? The sky is the limit.

Mine are kind of collection, kind of character.
You have the two alphabet pins that I am missing! I need the E and the N. My collection is the round alphabet pins, the zodiac pins (minus one), the baby princesses, the flower princesses, lots of Jasmine and Donald Duck (my two fave characters) and just random faves. I will post a picture later as I am off to work soon

hmmm I'll have to look and see if I have any of the round alphabet series left, I know I traded some of them away (and I had some that were scrappers too and wouldn't want to give you those) but not sure if I traded them all away.

I collect Tink, I have a full corkboard of her and a lanyard as well. I also collect Maleficent, Megara, Jessica Rabbit (I have 2 framed LE sets that DBF gave me as a gift a few years ago) and honestly, if there's one I like I get it. lol Everyone in our family collects pins so we have a lot, my favorite is this one~




This is an old picture of my Tink board, it's full now.

Next to you guys I am a poor example of a pin collector as I donít have a lanyard, donít trade and I donít display my pins, however I have posted my small collection anyway

I started my collection due to wasting time in a shop waiting for a fastpass to kick in and noticing a Yzma pin which I thought was cute and as I hardly ever see ENG stuff I decided to buy it. Then I thought I might as well buy some pins from my favourite Disney film which is Aladdin and there started the problem. I found Jasmine, Genie and Jafar but no Aladdin. Since then each time I have visited a Disney park I have gone in pins shops looking in vain for an Aladdin pin and ended up buying other ones!

I am visiting WDW in a couple of weeks so I hope to have success there and my collection will be complete. If there is no Aladdin pin then I am sure I will come back with some other random ones and my collection will just keep growing till I find one. I even saw the wardrobe from Beauty and the Beast during my last Disney trip, a wardrobe gets a pin and no sign of Aladdin!

How do you know if they are scrappers?
