    Love the Panel - y'all are so helpful! My question is about Pin Trading - from my experience, it seems to focused as a kid activity, do adults participate to? Do you have experience trading pins? Thanks!

    Hi Lisa,

    Thanks so much, we are so glad to be able to help make Disney vacations even more magical.

    Pin trading is definitely not an activity just for children. While my three boys certainly join the masses of other children that enjoy this hobby, you will find an equal number of adults that are trading away. Actually the adult guests often have displays, at a number of the main pin locations at each of the parks and Downtown Disney, that are designed for trading and purchasing pins. I personally have traded pins many times and continue to on every trip. In my opinion the main difference between the adult and child trader is the child is often just trading for the fun of the trade or the interaction and adventure it brings. Most adult guests are trading to look for a certain pin or to add to a specific collection, therefore I think the adult trades are fewer since they are typically more selective.

    Don't forget at Disney World, everyone is a kid-so trade away. I love the feeling of success when I add a new pin to my collection from a simple trade. Enjoy!
