I did look and I have an "S" and a "K" from that series.

PM me

I think I have a double of the round alphabet "N". It's the one with Nana from Peter Pan, right? We had a quest to collect the series on a short trip a few years ago and we actually did it - with some major help from a sweet CM at Coronado Springs. We traded our extras except I believe my DD held on to an N because she called her grandma "NaNa". PM me if you're interested and I'll check tonight to make sure we still have it.

My favorite pin story ...

Our whole family loves to pin trade -- we just do it with CMs though as we aren't real pin savvy and don't want to spend a ton of money.

We were on the Disney Wonder celebrating my DD's 3rd birthday (this summer she celebrated her 10th -- so this was a while ago). I fell in love with a Belle pin that said something like "Happy Birthday, Princess!" that a CM in the gift shop had on her lanyard. Unfortunately, we had just stopped in after dinner -- so I didn't have my lanyard on. I asked the CM if she would save it for me if I ran up to my room to get a pin to trade with her. I explained that we were on the cruise for my daughter's birthday and that she was trading for all Princess pins.

The CM took the pin off and told me I could have it as a birthday gift for my daughter. She even put it in a beautiful little pink satin "envelope".

My daughter was SO EXCITED when she saw it! That CM made my day -- and hers too!

My wife had something solitary happen to her at world of disney at DTD DL. We were shopping and we found a CM With a pin my wife had to get. The only pin she had that she could trade was a pin of buzz(her fav) and she was torn with trading. The CM told her to keep her pin and gave her the other pin, explaining to her that she couldn't trade away one of her favorite pins. My wife refused but after a few mins I talked her into taking it before someone else came and we never say it again. It made our day. Some CM understand, some don't.

Yea my wife saw a pin that she needed to complete a set she was and the only thing we had to tade was a pin I was thinkibg of keeping. The cast member was really nice placed both pins in her hand and the handed them both back to me in a closed fist. Not sure if she saw our anniversery buttons and decided to be extra nice or if they all do that but it made my wifes day.

The CM are really nice about giving you a pin that you need. I had it happen to me twice when I was collecting the baby princesses. I had all of the pins by the end of the trip except Ariel. I could not find her any where. We were going back in Feb 12 so I was not to worried (this was Oct 11.) We were there for OMDD for the 24 hrs and we were slowly going out of the park so all the buses would be empty and I finally found her on a custodian who was sweeping up the park.

I just got back from WDW and I bought lots of new pins but once again no Aladdin in sight I spoke to a few of the CMs at the pin shops and they all said they couldn't even remember seeing an Aladdin pin apart from the baby one.

I have never traded before, but I am starting to think I may need to buy a random pin just so I can trade it for an Aladdin pin next year. Or maybe I should check out Ebay.

Anyway I got some nice new pins on my trip, so my little collection is still growing and overall I am happy.

This is my son's collection that we work on as a family. Hoping to add to it at the end of January. It's a work in progress.
Great site, thanks for looking, Scott

There are Aladdin pins, I have some. Check eBay but be aware of the scrapper sellers and use caution when buying, you may be able to find some good Aladdin pins there and not have to worry about trading.

Scrappers is pretty much the reason I haven't traded or used ebay before. Also I was sure an Aladdin pin would have been released by now. It's weird how some characters are so rare and others are there every year I go. I guess Aladdin just ain't that popular.

I will have a look at ebay as I don't plan to visit another disney park until next summer. I promised myself once I found an Aladdin pin I would stop collecting, but I think that ship has sailed

Juggling and magic are hobbies, so I collect Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickeys. I also have the juggling Goofy and a juggling Mickey.

DW collects the villains, especially Maleficent, also Tinks.

DD has the odd stuff: Plutos, baby Princesses, and from the cast members she has the colored lanyard pins and 3/4 "Fast Pass" pins. These aren't very pretty, but she likes them. She's also trying to collect the Princess pins in the form of a flower.

This thread is just what I needed after the day I had at work!

My collection started finding golf themed pins on eBay. During my last trip to the World two years ago, my family and I got serious with it. We each bought some of the sets of seven or eight and set goals to trade in themes.

On that trip I managed to get all of the Muppet characters wearing ear hats except Beeker, and a collection of various Minnies. The goal for my trip next week is to find the elusive Beeker and trade all for ride related pins!
