    HAD a DWT pin!

    So, I went to the cast pin replenishment area a few weeks ago. For those who don't know, this is where we get our pins traded for some good ones (cast exclusive hidden mickey's) ....we can get the HM's in a group of 6, OR we can just trade individually.

    Anyway- I was replenishing my lanyard, and at the time was just looking thru individual pins........and came across the DWT pin! Of course I snatched it up! My thinking was, even if no one wanted to trade for it (b/c they didn't know what it was) it was a shameless plug for Lou and for DWT! I put it in the bottom of my lanyard, kinda holding the two sides together, and every time someone wanted to look at my pins, and asked about it, I went on and on about what a great book it is, how there's a website, yada yada. As I said, shameless plug

    Well, as it turns out, a couple weeks ago a boy wanted to trade for that pin! I asked him if he'd read the book or knew anything about it. He said No, but that now that he had the pin he'd probably look for the book. I told him all about it, the website, how it's a really fun book, etc, so hopefully he decided to look for the book!

    The only thing is, *technically* the person who traded for that pin (meaning, the CM who accepted that pin) shouldn't have traded for it, b/c it's not an official Disney pin (meaning it doesn't have a copyright on the back), so I may never see one again Lou??? Can you get it copyritten (however you spell that) ?

    I don't know if he can get it copywrited b/c the site and book is not owned by Disney.

    I don't know which DWT pin it was , but I'm sure Lou would be happy to sell you one....click on shop at the top of the page. remember a percentage of all sales goes to help the Dreamteam send a sick kid to WDW thru Make a wish

    Since you were kind enough to give it to a young child that asked for it (I have a soft spot for kids), email me your address and I'm sure i can find one of the few remaining pins I have left and sent it to you
