    Can you tell me more about "pin trading?" I don't understand what it is all about.

    Great question Sue! The best way to start pin trading is to purchase a starter kit. These are available in almost all Disney gift shops, including Disney Pin Traders at the Downtown Disney Marketplace which offers the largest selection of pins in Walt Disney World. The kit includes several pins and a lanyard. When you see a cast member with pins, simply ask them to see them. If there's one you like, and you have an official Disney pin, you can trade it. The official pin trading "rules" allow you to trade up to two pins at a time. Depending how many pins you have, the lanyard can get quite heavy, so my daughter often just takes a few and pins them on her hat for a day in the parks.

    Hope this helps Sue! Write back if you have any other questions!
