    Can I trade official Disney STORE pins (bought in the UK) with those in the parks? These being bought through the Disney store in person or through ShopDisney website? Thanks 😁

    Hello Alice!

    Pin Trading at Walt Disney World is so much fun! My son and I got into it on our past trips to Walt Disney World. Most Cast members wear a lanyard with pins on it, and you can trade the Disney pins with them (you give them one of your pins, and you get to pick one of their pins). It is a one-for-one trade, and you are permitted to trade up to two pins per Cast Member. Also, many of the Walt Disney World Property stores offer Pin Trading.

    I have purchased Disney Pins through third-party dealers, and I have not had any problems trading them in the Parks as long as they are official Disney Pins with "Disney" stamped on the back of the pin. Typically, Disney Pins have a Mickey Ear backer included with them, according to my experiences. You should be fine, especially if you purchased your Disney Pins from the United Kingdom Disney Store or the shopDisney website.

    I hope you have a magical time trading pins on your next Walt Disney World vacation!
