    Pin trading is all about fun! You need to get a starter kit or find another trader and exchange someone else your pins for their pins. When at any Disney resort you can trade with the cast members. Or you can just collect. I mainly collect and have quite a few good pins from just riding a ride on the right day.

    Trading can be fun! I enjoy it and my boys really got into it too! For this trip I've ordered a bunch of pins from eBay to trade!

    Re: Pins?????

    there are some rules
    1. you have to give a pin to get a pin
    2. only children can trade with cast members who have a green lanyard or hip plackard
    3. maxium 2 pins per trade.

    there are literally thousands of pins so there are sure to be some you like
    now that being said buying pins at 5,6, or $ 7 a pop can become costly, i buy a bulk pack off of ebay before we roll on down to mouse town

    Only kids can trade? I've seen adults trade all the time and some adults have more pins than the kids. I never knew that. I guess I never got into the trading thing. I just got a couple of pins for my daughter that meant something to her. Next time I'll be buying a bunch of pins on Ebay and then letting her trade when we go back.

    No - to clarify, thehowells said "only children can trade with cast members who have a green lanyard or hip plackard"

    Anyone can trade with CMs with other lanyards or plackards - only the green ones and for kids.

    Are there any other rules? I remember reading an online FAQ years ago with all the ins and outs of pin trading but I haven't been able to find it since.

    How exactly does pin trading work? Do you just walk up to a CM who is wearing pins and ask them to trade? My daughter wants to start this year but am not sure of it.

    Yep that is pretty much the extent of it you just ask them to trade if they have a lanyard they will trade!

    I have merged these two threads because they ask the same question.

    I am going to buy some pins off eBay, but I noticed it said CM can only trade pins that have a copyright on the back. Has anyone had any issues trading pins from eBay?
