    Hi, I am returning to WDW for my 35+ time and was wondering if pin trading with cast members is still popular? This trip we will be going with our eldest daughter, son in law and 3 granddaughters. I thought that this might be a fun activity for them. Thx

    Hi, Mary! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    With more than 35 trips to the Walt Disney World Resort on your memory, I am sure that we have many things to learn from you! 

    You are correct to assume that pin trading with Cast Members is still highly popular at the Walt Disney World Resort, and let me tell you that it is not just for kids. My husband and I enjoy this activity a lot and we have met so many sweet Cast Members along the way that those memories are even more valuable than the pins themselves. 

    I am sure that your party will enjoy it as much as we do and that the Disney's Pin Traders at Disney Springs will be a must every night. The Cast Members there often play games and surprise guests with tricks to make the pin trading activities even more enjoyable! 

    The new Mickey Mouse Light-Up Lanyards - Disney Parks 2019 might also be fun additions to your pin trading traditions, as they are gorgeous keepsakes to keep your granddaughters' pins organized when they are enjoying the Theme Parks and heading home. 

    I hope your trip is much more than amazing for you, your daughter, son in law and granddaughters! If you want any more advice or updated tips, remember that the Disney Parks Moms Panel is always here for you. 

    May the magic be with you and your family,
