    Kids very excited to dip toes into pin trading. Dd's are 20&8, ds is 3. Will cast members be patient with ds who is not quite sure about handing things to strangers,ect?Also, will they allow oldest daughter or I to assist in trade for green lanyard?

    Hi Tabitha!

    There are absolutely guidelines to follow when pin trading, and I've never experienced an issue with a Cast Member especially where a little one is concerned.  If your son is wanting to initiate the trade, this is a great opportunity to teach him a kind of script to follow and you can even practice at home with him. 

    This age can also be tricky, so make sure that he understands what trading really means.  I think it's a great opportunity to to enhance social skills, make new friends and new memories.

    I think you'll also find that the Cast Members are very patient and understanding with the whole process, especially where the little ones are concerned.

    I hope you have a wonderful time trading!

    Have a magical vacation!
