    Hi! We are taking a first trip to Disney in May. I was just on the Chat and they told me about "First Visit Buttons" On the Mom's Panel I learn some about "Pin Trading" but where can I go to find ALL first time visit tips? Thank You

    Hi Michelle!

    The complimentary "My 1st Visit" buttons can be picked up at any Guest Relations or at your resort front desk.  These are different from pin trading.  My favorite location for purchasing pin trading merchandise is at Disney's Pin Traders in the Marketplace of Downtown Disney.  You will find everything you need to start trading as well as other guests and Cast Members to trade with.  They have some first visit buttons as well as special occasion buttons, holiday, character, park and limited edition selections.  

    You can find pins at every theme park as well as resort specific pins at each of the fabulous Walt Disney World resorts.

    First pick up a starter pack of pins and a lanyard.  If you plan on trading, purchase the least expensive pins since you'll be trading them away anyway.  Every Cast Member will be wearing a lanyard or a belt with pins to trade.  Check them all out and start trading!  We like to purchase special ones that have a meaning of our trip and keep them on a special lanyard at home.

    Happy trading!
