    Dear Moms~ Is there a pin board at Gran Destino Tower that my kids would be able to trade their pins at? Or do we have to walk over to El Centro and is there a pin board over there? Thank you!

    Hi, Kristin! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I tried calling the general Guest Service number for Walt Disney World Resort, but unfortunately I couldn’t get a concrete answer for you. The person I spoke to said your best bet will be to ask a Cast Member when you get there about your options for Pin Trading at Gran Destino Tower. 

    In my experience, you’ll find either Pin Trading boards or Cast Members with Pin Trading lanyards at each of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels and shops (as well as the shops in the Theme Parks). I do know that Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is the go-to place for Disney Pin Trading Fan events, so I have to think you’ll find a good number of people willing to trade when you’re there. While these events aren’t officially hosted or sponsored by Disney, a quick Google search should tell you whether or not such an event might line up with your stay.

    Make sure your kids keep their Pins with them when you travel to the Theme Parks, Kristin! I’d recommend trading at Epcot’s Pin Central, Magic Kingdom Park’s Frontier Trading Post, Crossroads of the World at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Pin Traders at Disney Springs. One of my favorite Walt Disney World Resort hotel Pin Trading boards is at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge--just a hop, skip and a jump away from Magic Kingdom Park.

    Hopefully these locations (combined with what you’re sure to find at the Gran Destino Tower at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort) will have your kids trading more than they can handle! Please let us know if you have any other questions; you know we’re always happy to help.
