Disney's Pin Celebration 2008 - Pin Trading University
September 5-7, 2008
Epcot® - World Showplace




Graduate with highest trading honors at Disney's Pin Celebration 2008 - Pin Trading University. This three-day, Disney Pin event will be held September 5-7, 2008 at Epcot® - World Showplace

Recall your school days with a "superlative" collection of Disney pins created especially for this event. Students will also enjoy games and activities, plenty of pin trading opportunities and "A Live Auction" presented by the drama club.

Don't forget to bring your No. 2 pins as Trading Class 101 begins at 9:30 sharp!

~ "Class Registration" will begin on Wednesday May 7, 2008 ~

Update February 25, 2008
Here is another sneak peek at a few pins to be released at Pin Trading University. These images feature four different pins from four different pin collections from this event.


From What's HapPINing at Disneypins.com:

On a related note, the theme for this year's Pin Celebration was inspired by "school." It was felt that "school" was something that everyone knows in some fashion, such as high school or college. The pins created for this event were inspired by elements from those types of schools (in other words, some high school mixed with a little college).

The name "Pin Trading University" was liked more than "Pin Trading High School." The name "high school" could have been associated with other "high schools" Disney has created (i.e. Sky High or High School Musical, which are not themes that will be presented in this event - though they are both great movies!). They also thought of "Disney University," which provides extensive training and educational learning opportunities for thousands of Disney Cast Members around the world. Disney University is not an actual university that anyone can attend; it doesn't have a principal or a football team. But, one can immediately understand that it is a place of learning just by including the word "university."

As additional artwork is revealed in the coming months, you will begin to see those "high school" elements and those elements that could be applicable to "college." Ultimately, this event will be the interpretation of what "Pin Trading University" would be like if the world famous Disney Characters could actually attend such a school.
