    Going on our 1st WDW vacation 9/28 - 10/6. I haven't heard your panel discuss pin trading. What is it ? Will my daughters -9 & 12 - enjoy it?

    Molly,

    Pin trading at Walt Disney World is a very popular hobby for many regular guests, as well as a lot of first-time visitors too.

    Guests will collect pins showing a wide array of Disney characters, attractions, parks, and other events and locales. Often you will see these guests walking around the parks with lanyards literally covered with colorful pins.

    You can, of course, buy pins in just about every Walt Disney World store. But the real magic in the pin trading experience is letting your kids interact with the Disney Cast Members (employees). They will trade any pin that they have on their lanyards for one that your kids may have. The interaction can be a really special moment, especially in the Epcot World Showcase, where cast members are often from the countries represented by the pavilions there.

    I think that for older pre-teens like your daughters it can be a great added element to a vacation at Walt Disney World. It also gives them a great vacation keepsake to take home with them, to remind them of the great time they had!

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
