do they do pin trading?

When I was last at UO a few of the cashiers had pin lanyards with a few pins on them. Do their workers do pin trading similar to Disney people? And if so, do they only trade Universal pins?

Keep in mind pin trading at Universal is not on the scale as WDW so you might be disappointed. I never got in to pin trading personally but I know lots of people who trade and enjoy it.

When you say not on the same scale do you just mean that less people are trading?

I know dd8 will want to pin trade, but 2 or 3 is enough for her.

I work in merchandise here and there and honestly most people I see do not have lanyards. So it will be harder to find people to trade with.

Maybe we should just focus on pressed pennies this trip.
