Carol - Pin trading is basically, trading one of your Disney pins, for one of someone else's Disney pins. Disney releases pins in their parks, resorts, Disney Vacation club (and cruise line) all across the globe. Those who generally travel to Disneyland might not get a chance to see EuroDisneyland pins ... or WDW pins.

You can purchase news pins direct from Disney (at resorts, etc) ... but I would not suggest buying new pins to use as traders. If you have an account on eBay, and IF you are familiar AND comfortable with using eBay ... you might consider buying a set of 20, 30, 40+ pins. You can usually buy them for under $1 per pin, verses $6 - $12 per pin (when new). If you DO buy online ... I would suggest you ONLY buy from someone who sells other Disney pins, or Disney merchandise. I would also suggest you DO NOT buy from someone outside of US / Canada. There are many sellers from Asian countries who sell what are called SCRAPPERS ... basically, the pins are rejects.

Many cast members in customer service or retail (including ship officers) wear a lanyard with Disney pins. If you see anyone with a lanyard (around their neck (some wear them on a hip pad), you can ask to trade with them. You may pick 1 or two of their pins, so long as you give them the same number of Disney pins in trade. One more rule is that they cannot accept a duplicate pin ... you cannot give them two of the same pins, or, you cannot give them pin "x" if they already have it on their lanyard (they will help you if you have questions).
