    is the pin trading still something they do at Walt Disney world. we are going next week and I wanted to tell my 7 year old about it if they were.

    Hi there Kanita,

    Pin trading is definitely still a popular experience at Walt Disney World. Pins are sold in nearly every shop at Walt Disney World. You'll find that most cast members wear lanyards around their necks with several pins on them. You're welcome to ask any of them to trade. You may also want to keep a look out for cast members wearing special green lanyards. These folks will only trade with guests under the age of 12. They're great at being extra patient with kids just learning the ropes of pin trading.

    In addition to the lanyards, there are also pin books or displays in many of the resort gift shops which you can trade from. There may be specific hours that the displays are available, so be sure to check at the register of your hotel shop. You'll also find larger trading opportunities at the Frontierland Trading Post at the Magic Kingdom, at the Pin Station in central Epcot (near the fountain), and at the large pin store at Downtown Disney.

    And of course, you're also welcome to trade with other guests. It's a great way to meet people from all over the country and the world.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
