    My family and I are super excited to be going on our first trip to Disneyland! I have a 3 year old who prides herself on doing things herself. In our package we got a lanyard and pin for each person. Is this something she will get to choose herself? Thanks

    Hi there Rebecca,

    First trips to The Happiest Place on Earth are the best. What a magical gift you are giving your family by bringing them to the Disneyland Resort. You are sure to make memories that will last a lifetime.

    Be sure to stop by Guest Services to get your free "First Visit" buttons for your family to wear during your trip. Cast Members that see your buttons will send you all warm wishes throughout the day.

    My family loves to trade Vinylmations and just started in the Pin Trading world - so much fun for all ages! The Disneyland Resort offers Pin Trading as well. Just find any Cast Member wearing a lanyard to make a Pin Trade. There are usually Guests at the Disneyland Resort carrying their prized Pin Trader cases around waiting to make a magical trade with collectors too.

    Your daughter also has the option to look for any Cast Member wearing a teal-colored Kids Only lanyard, these lanyards indicate that the pins are available for trading with the younger Mouseketeers. I just love that your daughter is "Brave" and eager like Merida; I wish her happy trading.

    Here's the link for pin trading at The Happiest Place on Earth. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any more questions, please visit me here and let me know how I can help you plan your magical vacation.

    Wishing you Faith, Trust, & Pixie dust!
