More Fun at Disney Resorts: Disney Pin Trading 101

A few years ago our family started Disney pin trading, and it has been one of our favorite things to do at the Parks ever since. We are not kidding you guys… we are complete Disney pin freaks! The crazy thing is, we are just as into it (if not more) than our kids. It’s THAT fun!

What is Disney Pin Trading?

If you are just starting your collection or for those who may have heard about it but don’t know, Disney Pin Trading is another way to enjoy a new Disney experience. Collecting pins and trading them with Cast Members and other Disney Park visitors is a great way to interact with other Disney fans. It can be a great conversation starter and way to meet people from all around the world. Equally awesome, is that it’s also a magical way to get the whole family involved in an activity together! Score!

Be sure to read about proper pin etiquette.
