Please add me for my daughter, Rain. The reason I love Disneyland is
because it's the place we've always gone with family. Growing up, my dad
was always working. We didn't see him much and we never had a lot of
money. Every so often his brother (Buster) would come visit from Utah
and we'd all lose our minds. A visit from my uncle always included a
family trip to Disneyland. I loved seeing my uncle Buster, but because
he lived so far away it made sense that he wasn't around very much. My
dad and I lived in the same house, but because of the long hours he
worked he was always gone. That was difficult for me. I loved my
dad, so a trip to Disneyland meant I got to spend time with him. I always felt closest to him there. I
was always grateful for my uncle's visits. Although my dad and uncle
are now no longer with us, the feeling of family togetherness they gave
us will always stay with me. A family day at Disneyland is my favorite
thing. Luckily I found someone who feels the same as I do. My husband
and I have loved every Disney day with our daughters. The days are
just never long enough. Which is another reason I am so happy I stumbled
across MW. Mousewait feels like my extended ohana that is always at
Disneyland. Even when I can't be there, you bring me there with you.
No matter who we've lost, MW brings us all together. Thank you for taking us on your amazing trip and for this awesome rak! - OhanaPhoto 6607.7 #20 10-1-16 12:36PMLike(10)Reply

They have a couple boards. One in the DVC office. Many of the DVC sales people have lanyards. They do have some UNIQUE pins that are Aulani based. I would suggest bringing maybe 25-50 pins to trade with CMs. Didn't really see any guests trading. Being in swimsuits and wet much of the time, most people don't want to wear lanyards. I threw about 5-10 in my swim bag in case I ran into the DVC people. There are some DVC on the way to the pools you will go by often and they change pins out. - DLKenCA 3079.5 #51 8-4-16 9:43AMLike(2)Reply
We were there last year and did some trading. Like others have said, DVC office had a board. The smaller gift shop, where they sell Pandora and handbags, clothes, had book too. Many cast members have them too. Our kids traded daily. They did offer s guest pin trading meeting to in one of the rooms there. We didn't make that though...Too busy in the water! So it's worth bringing some for sure. They have s decent amount for sale but I was surprised to learn that Aulani doesn't get to order pins, WDW sends them boxes and they don't know what they are getting until they open them. The cast members are so friendly and willing to go the extra mile if you are looking for a particular pin. Also, check out the Disney store at the Ala Moana mall. They have some exclusives to Hawaii as well. Good luck and have fun! - Danierob 91.6 #3867 8-4-16 9:50AMLike(1)Reply

I'm ok with change too. I think it's important to continue to think outside the box and allow the new imagineers to blow our minds with new attractions and lands on the hallow grounds that Walt built his dream. For me, I hope the entrance never changes. Walking through those gates and walking under the train tracks, through the tunnel and coming up on Main Street is such a special moment every time we visit. I take a moment each time to glance over at the firestation and thank Walt for creating a place that millions of families have shared some of the greatest memories. - Danierob 91.6 #3867 8-2-16 10:50PMLike(2)Reply

#dizneedude, Totally agree with you. I did a little digging around tonight and read some really interesting articles on what's going on. I think there is a lot of "loss" in many different sectors. Obviously they are doing well in the Motion Picture business right now but it seems everything else is down. And a bunch of little to moderate "downs" can erase any and all profits. I read one article that quoted someone stating that their will still be Disney video games produced but it won't be by a "Disney" company, instead someone who pays a licensing fee. An example of this is what they did with Star Wars Battlefront. They let EA make the game and in return profits in Disney Interactive went from a loss of $300 million to a profit of $180 million, huge turn around to say the least in just three years. My guess is that at the end of the day, they did not see the "value" in having all of that content produced in-house, mainly the hardware end of that. Instead, let someone else bare the burden of all of those costs and allow them to buy the rights from you. I'll throw my .2 in as well and venture to guess that with some of the shake up's in the executive chain, including the COO Staggs stepping down is a sign of more of the same in the future. To me it's a sign that they will invest in what is going to yield them the greatest in return, and quickly move to make cuts in the areas that don't measure up. With reduced park hours, restaurants closed, and continued cost cutting within other vertical markets, it's safe to assume that they are gearing up to invest heavily in what brings home the bacon, Movies and Parks. - Danierob 91.6 #3867 5-10-16 11:34PMLikeReply

I am sorry that many will lose their jobs, but I can't say that I am surprised. My kids(even though they are not Disney fans), did not care for this game. It was also discouraging to have to buy a whole new system every time they released a new set of characters. It was a very expensive game to keep up with.
