Collecting and Trading Pins
at Disney World
One Disney memento that can
be not too expensive—or very big—are
Disney pins. There are different
types of pins, e.g. park pins, Mickey Mouse
pins, female character pins, etc.
Some people collect and display them—and
others engage in the fun of trading them. There
are thousands of Disney pins
for purchase. Many can be found on the large online auction sites. This is a great place
to start a collection before visiting Disney
Pins sell for as little as $3 (more expensive
ones up to $40 for sets).
Both children and adults do pin collecting and
trading, and you will see guests trading pins
with Disney cast members in the parks. Some cast members even wear special green lanyards and their pins can only be traded with children.
Trading Disney pins
with cast members is a wonder way to interact.
There are brochures that can be obtained with
all the Disney pin trading etiquette, but the
rules are quite simple. Many Disney cast members
wear pin trading lanyards or pin trading boards.
If a cast member has a pin that you would like,
you simple remove a pin from your lanyard and
tell them which pin you wish to trade for. It
is all up to you what pin you select to give
and receive. It is that simple!
Once you receive a pin that you want to keep,
I recommend putting a locking pin back onto
it. Disney pins often come loose from lanyards
and are lost. Locking pin backs can be purchased
at all pin selling locations.
