basically its as easy as it sounds. You have disney pins and you can trade them with other pin traders or cast members on the cruise. they usually wear them on their lanyards but at the pin trading sessions some people have books to trade out of. I usually buy them off ebay for my kids to trade with on the ship. I like to use bizzybee on ebay for my pins. She has authentic trader pins

One tip that a CM told me when the kids were starting to trade is to NOT let them trade with anyone other than a CM. Kids trade for what they like. They don't know about fake pins or values. Some adult pin traders may spot a valuable pin on a kid's lanyard and try to take advantage of them by making a trade for it. My kids decide on a theme each cruise, then hunt for pins that are that theme. They have gone for Princesses, Mickey, pirates, and WDW in the past.
