    My 10 yr old son is interested in the pin trading any advice?? How do we get started etc... He is also interested in finding hidden Mickeys any help?

    We got started by purchasing a few pins online from a reputable auction site.  We were able to get several pins to start rather inexpensively.  We purchased a lanyard at one of the many shops in Walt Disney World.  My kids would primarily trade with cast members.  We had the most fun in Epcot 's World Showcase.  I challenged my older ones to learn one new word from each of the countries.  They collected the pins along the way.  If you see a green felt hanging from a cast member it means they will only trade with the younger kids.  There are some pins with hidden Mickey's as well.  My son asks the cast member if he/she has a hidden Mickey pin.  We have gathered quite a few.  Hope you have a fantastic trip!!!  Heather M.
