    Since EPCOT is being refurbished, they have closed off a large area where guests could trade with other guests. Where can we go now? Is there another area in EPCOT set aside for this? My children and I loved going every weekend to see what we could find.

    Hi Joann!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for stopping by with your Walt Disney World question. We love to help!

    Disney Pin Trading is a ton of fun! Our whole family still loves trading for new-to-us pins during each Disney vacation, even though my "kids" are all adults now! Our favorite spot to trade pins is in the lobby of each Walt Disney World Resort. Some locations, like Disney's Wilderness Lodge, even host a whole binder that you can browse through. We've come across some of the cutest pins there!

    While your favorite area in EPCOT is being impacted by the refurbishment, there is a new area at Pin Traders - Camera Center in Future World. While the interior of the shop will host Disney-sponsored trading, you may find that guests who wish to trade often visit this area in search of the perfect pin trading treasure!

    Another great location for all things pins is in Disney Springs at Disney's Pin Traders. You'll find all sorts of trading (and purchasing!) opportunities here.

    Did you know that EPCOT is also hosting this year's All Things Pins event? Each year the event features a new theme and 2020's theme will be Celebrating 20 years of Disney Pins. It is currently scheduled for later in August. You'll want to check the Merchandise Events page for more information on logistics and registration. Events do fill up quickly, so you'll want to be register as soon as you can, if you are interested in attending this year's event.

    Good luck with your pin trading adventures! I hope you find a few pins that you'll treasure forever!
