    What is pin trading like at disneyland now? Are cast members wearing lanyards with pins to trade?

    Hiya Suzanne, and welcome to planDisney! We’re so glad you’re here!

    This question is near and dear to my heart, because my family also enjoys pin trading at the Disneyland Resort! We visited Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park just last week, and didn’t see any Cast Members wearing lanyards for one-on-one trading, unfortunately. However, I have some good news to share, Suzanne! You can still find pin boards for trading throughout Disneyland Park, Disney California Adventure Park, Downtown Disney District, and even the Disneyland Resort Hotels! During our recent visit, my boys found some awesome pins to trade for in front of Sarge’s Surplus Hut in Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park. I’ve also seen some Guests displaying their own collections of pins for trading near the entrance of Frontierland in Disneyland Park, in case you happen to see anyone there. 

    I love the tradition of pin trading, and can’t wait for you to find some good pins during your March adventures! Also, here’s the Entertainment Schedule for your day of arrival, so you can start mapping out your plans. Here, you’ll find park hours, a list of attractions scheduled for refurbishment, and entertainment offerings. 

    Last but not least, I have more good news for you, Suzanne! You’re arriving at the Disneyland Resort at the perfect time, since the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival runs from March 4 to April 26, 2022! I highly recommend checking out the Festival Marketplaces, filled with an assortment of delicious bites, wine, and beer. 

    If you have any other planning questions, please stop back at planDisney – we can’t wait to help make your magical dreams come true!

    See ya’ real soon!
