to read all about the day on Castaway Cay.....and see pictures of the event staff and the awesome gift given to all Pin Trading Cruisers!!!

We at Dizpins join Ted and Stephanie when they give a HUGE THANKS to the event team. They are: Darlene Dumas (event manager), Mary Martin, Amy Edwards, Gary LaTouche, Rodney Hill, Mark King, Kim Payne, Kristin McElveen, Mia Barbaro, Beverly Martin, Ralph Kent, and Cody Reynolds........

These people did a WONDERFUL job! This event was flawless! There was absolutely NO confusion. Except for the Castaway Cay pin, everything was RSP. This allowed them to have absolute control and to ensure that the pins where distributed as evenly and fairly as possible. The seminars were great! The pins were GREAT, not to mention, plentiful!!! We all owe the event team and the crew of the Disney Wonder a standing ovation! If the Spectacle of Pins event is run this well, everyone is in for a great treat! We'd also like to thank a few Cast Members: Sara in the Internet Cafe. Without you, these detailed report wouldn't have been possible!!! Thanks to Gail at Treasure Ketch. DCL had a TON of lanyard pins. She helped assure that everyone got a stab at them. In other words, no one person walked out of here with everything!

Thanks again to the event team and to the crew of the Disney Wonder. You planned a great party and were WONDERful hosts! Our hat's off to you all!

...and to Ted and Stephanie...a BIG thanks from all of us for taking us along
on the cruise...you brough a BIG part of the magic home to all of us.
