Nick LoCicero is at the Florida Project over the next few days and you will be able to follow his adventures through our blog. Check back regularly for updates.
This place is amazing! After months of anticipation and hours waiting outside EPCOT, guest are finally let into the Florida Project. In case you didnt know, this years WDW pin and vinylmation trade event is themed after the preview center that introduced guests to the vacation kingdom of the world. The cast members are all in character, pretending it is december 9, 1971. Right now they are airing Walt Disney’s press conference where he announced the plans for his new theme park. The themeing is amazing. Im about to trade some pins, ill be back soon with another update.
The Trading Areas

On my first ever trade board i got a refreshed board! I got 2 of the event LE pins. Amazing. The hanted mansion trade area isnt a board. There are 5 small coffins. You spin then on a table and get to look inside one for your pins. A quick correction, its september 9, 1971, not december. Silly of me. They also have a lot of previews of upcoming pins and vinylmation. Go to www.destinationvinylmation.com for a look. Ill post some pin previews here later. Back to trading!
Day One is over. So much trading! There was a large trade floor for guests as well as the themed trading areas. Here is a closer look around.
