    There are plenty on the forum that have been to these before and are more than happy to help. Just ask plenty of questions before you go and it won't be as overwhelming.

    Oh, and yeah, I'll be there as well. And for those not going, I will be offering up many of the RSP pins for at cost pick up. Probably will post that thread in the next week or two.

    Well lay on the knowledge! I do have some confusion about the RSP ( I think that’s what it’s called) and picking the pins)

    RSP = Random Selection Process It's basically a lottery for the pins in case more people want them than they have. In your email confirmation for the event registration there is a link to your RSP form. Basically, you just list all the pins you want to purchase in priority order. Including the mystery pins and, with those, how many you want. (You can try for more than one of the others as well, but they are specifically in second and third rounds.) There is no rush as you have until mid-July to submit it. Then, at that time, they basically take each pin and go "Okay, we have 200 (or whatever) or this pin and 180 people listed it as their #1 want, so they all get it. And we have 20 left for people who put it as their #2 want so we will do a random drawing of those folks and give to the top 20. Everyone else is out of luck on that one. On to the next pin." Or something like that. To be honest, I don't know the exact process they use, but it's likely something very similar. Bottom line is, list the pins in your preferred order and cross your fingers. In past years, most if not everyone got what they wanted so you should be in good shape. I did use a bit of strategy with my wife putting our stuff in opposite order to cover the bases. You will be able to cancel any you don't want after the RSP and before buying.
    Hope that helps!

    When you go to the RSP (Random Selection Process), they will have 3 RSP sections listed with 24 options (the entire catalog) under each. For as many pins as you want under First RSP, you list them in order of preference without duplicating your choices. If you want more of one particular pin, then you use Second RSP and Third RSP for those. You will receive multiples if there are any pins left after the first round of the First RSP is done for all attendees. If you want additional quantities of pins, they will have a store at the event where they will sell those left over or returned by attendees.

    Clear as mud?

    Ok. That helps a lot! I posted on the other thread too... but how does the event work? What part of it is at Epcot?

    There are two answers on your other thread as well. There is an early registration day (Thursday), as noted by Ajk, where you can register early, get your pins from the RSP and trade as well, if you'd like. The main event takes place in Epcot in the Event Center between Canada and the UK on Friday and Saturday. I would recommend doing the early registration if you can. That way it doesn't eat into your event time.
