    When is Disney bringing back the pin trading with cast members on the cruise ships.

    Hi there, Debora! Welcome back to planDisney. Thanks for dropping anchor with us again!

    I know that pin trading is a favorite activity for many guests sailing with Captains Minnie and Mickey. While I'm not sure when pin trading with Crew Members onboard will resume, I do know there are still some fun opportunities for pin trading during your Disney Cruise. 

    One of my favorite ways to trade pins on our last sailing was with a pin-trading board scavenger hunt! We realized that several guests provided pin-trading boards outside of their staterooms. We had a great time exploring the ship and searching for unique pins to trade. My daughter traded for the most adorable Stitch pin. If it sounds fun, you could create your own board and encourage your fellow cruisers to pin-trade with each other.

    You might also consider searching on a popular social media site for a specific group for your cruise. Here you will find a community of people that will be sailing on the ship with you. You can usually find these groups by using your sailing dates and ship in the keyword search. I've seen cruise groups organize pin-trading meet-ups on the ship, which could be a great opportunity for you to do what you love. 

    The activity offerings onboard Disney Cruise Line are always changing and evolving to offer as much magic as possible for those onboard, so it's possible that a pin trading activity could resume for your sailing. Once you are onboard, check the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to look at the Daily Activity Schedule, or drop by the Guest Services Desk to ask if there are any additional opportunities for pin trading. 

    I hope you have a magical time onboard your Disney Cruise! Please sail to us again any time you have more questions. It's a pleasure to help!
