    I keep seeing where friends have recently gone to WDW or are going in Dec have received a pin. We are going in Nov but haven't gotten a pin or received anything about one. Can someone shed some magic on this? I would like my daughter to pin trade.

    Hi, Amy!

    I’m so glad you asked about Disney Pin Trading, because it’s one of my favorite ways to make visits to Disney Parks even more fun and engaging! You can purchase pins at the resort shops or in advance on the Disney Store website. This is a great way to ensure you get that must-have pin that features your favorite character, attraction, event, film or design. 

    It’s possible that your friends received a complimentary trading pin from the travel company they used to book their vacations as part of a promotional offer. However, if you don’t end up receiving one prior to your vacation, you can still buy a few inexpensive pins or a multi-pack so your daughter can pin trade with Cast Members during your vacation. It’s an easy way to enhance your park experiences. Simply find a Cast Member wearing a pin trading lanyard, ask if your daughter can see his or her pins, find a pin she’d like to trade for, and trade her pin for the Cast Member’s. 

    Disney Pin Trading is like a scavenger hunt that can lead to fun interaction and adventure. Plus, pins make great souvenirs, so I hope you’ll give it a try with your daughter during your Walt Disney World Resort visit! Please write back with any other questions you may have as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted vacation.

    Wishing you magic,
