    Are there opportunities for Disney pin trading in Downtown Disney or outside the ticketed areas in Disneyland?

    Hello Shirley, and welcome to planDisney, we're so glad you're here!  

    I have good news, there is an opportunity for pin trading at the Downtown Disney District at Disney's Pin Traders.  It's located right near the Downtown Disney Monorail station, and you do not need a theme park ticket to visit Disney's Pin Traders or any of the other great shopping and dining locations at the Downtown Disney District.  

    They have a great variety of pins to purchase, including starter kits if you're new to pin trading, as well as lanyards to proudly display your collection.  You can find a Disney Cast Member wearing a pin-trading lanyard, and start trading for pins that speak to you!  If it was me Shirley, I'd be trading for some of my favorite Marvel Super Hero pins!  

    I'd also keep my eye out for other shops that offer pin trading located throughout the Disneyland Resort.  If there are pins to trade, you'll usually find them on a Disney-themed trading board with the pins on display, and you can ask a Cast Member if you're able to make a trade if you see one that catches your eye!  We've actually taken all of our pins that we've collected from our trips and put them on display on a large cork board so we can see all of the memories from our Disney vacations over the years.  

    I hope this information was helpful for your planning Shirley, and please do not hesitate to come back to planDisney with any other questions!

    Have a magical day!
