    Hi There! I just purchased a "lot" of 25 pins on the site you guys recommended but then later I read that Disney Cast Members will no longer trade the Pro-Pins made in Germany from the lot I bought. Is this true?

    You should have no problems trading Disney Trading Pins made by Pro Pins. I (and my kids) have traded them many times with Cast Members without ever having any problems. 

    If you want to trade with other guests (non Cast Member), it is possible that they might not want to trade these pins (or many other kinds of pins), but then again they might. 

    I personally find that it is easiest and less stressful to simply stick with trading pins with Disney World Cast Members.  I am confident that Cast Members will be happy to trade these pins with you and/or your kids.

    According to Disney, the only requirements are that Disney Trading Pins should:
    - Be in good, undamaged condition
    - Be made of metal
    - Represents a Disney Event, Location, Character or Icon (often verified by looking for a Disney copyright mark on the back of the pin)

    Hope that helps.
