The Florida Project Takes Place at Epcot This Weekend

Epcot will be the place for many dedicated pin traders this weekend as it is set to host the Disney Trade Celebration. This year's event, called the Florida Project, starts today and focuses on giving pin and Vinylmation enthusiasts opportunities to swap pins, participate in silent auctions and meet Disney pin artist and developers.

Today and Saturday are focused on pin trading from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Guests can expect a wide variety of pins, some featuring a retro or nostalgic feel as WDW gears up to celebrate its 40th anniversary.

Sunday is the day for Vinylmation collectors and enthusiasts. The hours for that day are 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Guests can expect to pay $115 for admission to the Disney Trade Celebration on Friday and Saturday and $40 for Sunday. It should be noted these admission prices are in addition to general admission to Epcot.

The Celebration will also feature a "public day" from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

More information about this weekend's event can be found at the Disney Pins website.

I've been at Epcot before when this event is happening.
While most of us Disney fans have some "geekiness" is us, this event draws the nerdiest of the Disney nerds.
Looking at that line of people. Unreal. Total "Gooberfest"!!! God bless 'em!
