I recently introduced my 4 year old daughter to pin trading, and it has quickly become an obsession. Whether we are at the Disney parks or on a Disney Cruise, her priority is trading pins with cast members. She would be so excited about the new pin trading cart in Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom, just a few steps from Space Mountain.
This new cart has a huge selection of pins and souvenirs! Need a bubble wand and an ice cold water? They’ve got you covered!
Are you new to the world of pins and pin trading? Let me get you up to speed! There have been thousands of unique pins created over the years, including those for special events and Disney milestones. Some pins are part of larger collections that make seeking them out even more fun!
How does pin trading work?
First, you need to have some pins to trade! You can buy pins individually or in starter packs in shops throughout the parks and resorts.
Once you have pins you can start trading with cast members. Any cast member with a lanyard of pins will trade pins with you – one at a time, and up to 2 trades per day.
Cast members cannot have duplicates, so you cannot give them ones they already have.
You can also find boards at many of the shops that have pins on them, and you are allowed to trade those under the same rules I mentioned above.
We like to buy pins to commemorate special occasions like birthdays, our 5-year wedding anniversary, and our first Disney cruise. The majority of our pins are those that we have traded with cast members because they were our favorite character, or just looked unique.
