    We are about to head south to Disney World. Are the cast members back to pin trading yet? Need to know if we should pack our pins this trip. Thanks

    Hiya Gene!

    I’m glad you stopped by planDisney with your question for us today.

    It’s fantastic that you’re preparing to spend some time in the magic! After returning from my trip celebrating Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary, I am ecstatic for you! And don’t worry about missing out on any of the fun when it comes to The World’s Most Magical Celebration. The Most Magical Place on Earth knows how to party as this celebration will last 18-months, giving Guests plenty of opportunities to celebrate the magic!

    I was browsing Everything Pop Shopping and Dining at Disney’s Pop Century Resort just yesterday when my fellow panelist and dear friend, Allyn B., gasped as she stopped me in my tracks. It was because she had seen a pin she was looking for on a board behind a Cast Member at the register and was able to trade one of hers for it! She was smiling EAR to EAR when we left the shop!

    Pin trading is indeed back, and we are all delighted! However, things work just a bit differently, as now, rather than a Cast Member wearing the pins on a lanyard, you will see a board displaying the pins with directions on how to drop the pin(s) you would like to trade in a box and then let the Cast Member know which pin(s) you’d like in exchange. -And remember, please do be sure to keep the backs of your pins. The Cast Member will be happy to help complete your trade! Yippie!

    We can’t wait for you to return to the magic, Gene! Have an enchanting time.
