    THAT VARIES. IT CAN GO RIGHT DOWN THE STAIRS TO THE ENTRANCE, AND AT 90 SEC INTERVALS THAT COULD BE OVER 30 MIN WAIT. WE DONT DO IT THEN. ANYWHERE FROM THAT TO WALKING RIGHT UP INTO THE STACK AND MAYBE ONLY 10 PEOPLE INFRONT OF YOU. IF YOU DONT SEE THE LINE OUT THE STACK UP JUST BELOW THE LOOP THAT GOES OFF THE SHIP THEN YOU HAVE A SHORT WAIT ONLY. TAKE YOUR WATERPROOF CAMERA:rotfl2:

    SOMETIMES IVE BEEN IN THAT SPOT. WHAT I DO IS LEAVE THEM IN THE CORNER OF THE DOOR ON THE FLOOR. IVE DONE A BALANCING ACT IN THE POCKETS ALSO. ONE TIME WE HAD 60 CABINS AND A THERE WERE TIMES WHEN THERE WERE MANY FE GIFTS IN THE POCKETS AT ONE TIME. WHEN WE HAD A BIG GROUP LIKE THAT I WAS GOING UP AND DOWN THE DECKS AROUND MIDNIGHT FEELING LIKE SANTA CLAUS FILLING THE STOCKINGS:rotfl2: OCCASIONALLY I WOULD RUN INTO OTHERS DOING SAME THING. I HAD THEM ALL NUMBERED BY CABIN AND DID A DECK OR 2 AT A TIME. I REMEMBER STANDING IN THE ELEVATOR WITH AN ARM LOAD OF FEs. OTHER CRUISERS WERE LOOKING AT ME LAUGHING:rotfl2: NOT SURE WHAT I WAS DOING. NOT EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT FEs.

    Hello everyone. Just booked for the cruise and was wondering if there was a FE exchange...and if there was time to be added on? We did our first FE exchange on the Hawaii cruise last month and it was great!

    IM A PIN FANATIC.:rotfl2: I SCAN CM FOR CERTAIN PINS. I SPEND ENOUGH MONEY TO PURCHASE THE LANYARDS WITH 8 PINS ON THEM FOR $18 AND USE THEM AS TRADERS. I COLLECT THE SPECIAL CHRISTMAS AND HALLOWEEN SETS. I COLLECT THE ANNUAL PASS ONES AND DVC MEMBER PINS.

    I USUALLY KEEP MY TRADERS IN MY POCKETS. ONETIME I FORGOT I HAD THEM IN MY POCKETS, AND WE HAD TO GO THRU SECURITY AT THE PORT. WHEN I GOT TO THE BINS I HAD TO EMPTY 6 POCKETS. I HAD ABOUT 15 PINS PILED IN THE BIN WITH MY OTHER STUFF.:rotfl2: I MAKE BIG FRAMES WITH SELECTED PIN SETS. I HAVE 4 FRAMED COLLAGES I PHOTOGRAPHED, 1 FOR EACH PARK OF ALL THE ATTRACTIONS. AROUND THE MATTED FRAME I COLLECT THE PINS FOR THAT RIDE OR PARADE OR FESTIVAL. IVE GOT A BIG BOX OF SPECIAL EDITION DVC PINS I HAVENT EVEN TAKEN OUT OF THE CARDBOARD HOLDERS:rotfl2: ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO WE TOOK CARA, HAILEY, AND SKYE WITH US FOR THEIR FIRST VISIT TO WDW.
    I TRAINED HAILEY ON THE SKILLS OF COLLECTING PINS FROM CMs:rotfl2: SHE LEARNED VERY WELL. IT WAS FUN TO WATCH HER GO UP TO EVERY CM TO LOOK AT THEIR PINS, AT THE TIME I THINK SHE WAS 6. IVE GOT A LANYARD FILLED WITH TRADING PINS TO GIVE HER FOR WDW AFTER THE CRUISE. PIN COLLECTING IS LIKE AN ATTRACTION AT DISNEY!!!!:rotfl2:

    I have given my collections to my granddaughter and she too is now collecting them. NOthing specific other than we have the whole pirates of the carribean collection with the tinkerbell (was told very rare). It is still in its sleave. I have started the other family that we are bringing on collecting so it will be my DGD and her sister that will be doing the collecting now. I hope she can get some really good ones. I think she just goes by what she likes and not the rarity of it...SHe is 8 and her siter who has never been to DIsney is 7 and so she knows nothing about collecting pins...yet....

    Wow...I didn't know there was another cruise line besides Disney!!! LOL!!! It was actually on the Wonder...great trip...but WAY too short on the islands....but the sea days were great. Have also been on the Wonder to Alaska...that one was absolutely FANTASTIC! Would definately do that one again...perhaps next year...and my hubby doesn't like temps under 90! Hey, I will go anywhere Disney will take me!

    Thanks...looking forward to it ! This will be our 10th Disney Cruise (never on any others)..but bringing my brother/sister-in-law (their 1st time on Disney..and her first cruise) and mom/friend (friends first cruise too) so look forward to alot of magic !

    We do pin trading as well. If anyone is looking for anything particular let us know. I don't usually bring the collection bag on shorter cruises... I mainly look for cruise line for our son...my husband on the other hand collects anything that says disney and is made of metal !!

    Im glad a lot of people like Disney Pins... Kaitlin and I have been collecting for many many years and have around 500. We go to Disney and DTD mainly to trade pins. We will be bringing our entire collection :cool1:

    Question... Do you get a pin for sailing... like one specific to the cruise you are on? If so do they do it for all cruises or just special cruises.

    I also went and just bought pirate outfits for Kaitlin and I. They are really cool looking.

    Also finished the FE today... Will post the picture later after I get it uploaded.
