    Hi Kara. We're going back to DW in Nov. of 09 and my wife and 6 year old really want to get into doing the pin trading. Getting the necklace and everything. Where is the best place in DW to get all the stuff to get started with that?

    We all love pin trading, and just last week while vacationing at WDW we probably traded somewhere around 75 pins between the 5 of us!!  

    Throughout all of WDW, there are kiosks and places within the parks/resorts that have stations set up that can help you get started.  There are lanyard sets available for both kids and adults at all of these locations, but the biggest pin area is Disney's Pin Traders at Downtown Disney.  A brochure is available at these locations, too, that provides details about pin trading that I'd grab to look over.  

    We also purchase pins before we visit WDW through e-bay and most recently a website called where I purchased a large grab bag of pins for trading.  We each trade for fun rather than for collecting certain kinds for value and rarity (too many haunting memories of collecting beanie babies!).  My sons each have a large bulletin board that I lined with cork for them to display their pins on since they won't all fit on their lanyard anymore.  

    Have fun trading and a magical trip, too!
