    We are bringing our 3.5 year old to Disney and want to do pin trading. We have a number of pins already but I'm having trouble finding lanyards for our pins. Where is the best place to buy the lanyards?

    Hello, Amber!

    Thank you for bringing your great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Pin trading is indeed a fantastic activity for all Guests! My husband was super excited the last time we did it, and my mom was also fascinated by some of the pins she found on our trip. 

    Some of my pins always bring special memories from magical moments I shared with friends and family. I'm sure that your collection will also be sprinkled with beautiful reminders!

    Many stores at the Walt Disney World Resort carry cool lanyards and starter kits that include them, so you will have no problem finding a nice one for your little pin trader. The best store to start, in my opinion, would probably be Disney's Pin Traders, at Disney Springs.

    They have an excellent lanyard selection and many, many fantastic pin options to inspire you and your son on the quest. Cast Members often offer cool trading dynamics there, so it's definitely an exciting place to begin a pin trading journey!

    The Emporium also has many lanyard options, so you can stop by as soon as you enter Magic Kingdom Park. How does that sound?

    I hope you and your son have a great time and find many cool pins to bring home, Amber. If more questions pop up before your adventure, please, don't hesitate to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    May the magic be with you,
