Pin Trading

Do you collect pins at DL or WDW? If so, what are you favorite pins? How about some pictures? If not, why?

I do collect. I'll post pics of a few of mine when I get back to a computer including my favorite Pluto Pop one from my first WDW visit!

I love trading pins at WDW. I have around 300 pins and I can tell a story for almost all of them. One of my favorite pins is a chip and sale yoyo that actually works (but it is off balance. Another is a lion king pin that sings "Can you feel the love tonight". I have also received pins from random people by talking with them.

That's sweet! I have like 50, but nothing like that! I buy mine online and then trade at the parks then I buy a pin or two at the parks to commemorate the trip. That's my favorite way anyways..

What do you mean by random people and why would they just give you their pins? I can't believe you have 300!

One time I was on a boat and the people in front of me had the tinkerbell get one give one pins and they gave it to me. When I was really young I was talking with an older man and he gave me a LE pin and told more to take good care of it. I Have been to WDW 11 times and the last couple times I went I traded around 50 pins both times.

Well I buy pins on eBay and then trade them. I have probably bought around 30 pins at Disney.

Ahh ok. Yeah that's what I do. You said you've been 11 times.. You live in the Orlando area? How old are you? I'm hoping to buy about 20 more on eBay before my next trip. This will be my fourth trip pin collecting, I think my 10th all together, not sure.

I don't live in Florida and I am 14. My mom is on the Disney Moms panel and she loves Disney. We try to go every year. We are so into Disney the week we got back from WDW we already started planning for next year.

Your mom's on the mom panel that's awesome! How long did it take her to get onto that?! I'd imagine it's pretty hard.

Well I'm 17 and I'm going on my 17th time going to Disney in October, and my 18th time going in February. With myself living in NH, it's pretty hard to get into things that you can only do for about 7 days out of the year you're actually there. So, I have about 200 pins. My favorites have to be the years pins and also the special edition Oswald the Rabbit pin.

I love collecting but I've never traded any of my pins. I'm thinking of buying a set from Amazon or eBay and using some of those to trade on my next trip. I only have about 17 pins that I have bought from Disney over the years.

Someone gave my sister and I the Tinkerbell one when we went, and the next time we got a Lilo one and I got a Stitch one, and the most recent one is when we were leaving Downtown Disney, we both got a bus one! It almost looks like a AK bus? It's so cool when someone gets those! Makes the trip more "magical" Hahahaha

I don't collect pins but the one tear at wdw my mom and gma found lots o pins on the ground. I wanted 2 get a pin this trip but they were so expensive and I had used up all my money on a cute iPod case. I had wanted 2 get a LGM pin but couldn't find any. The closest I came was a small LGM and a Buzz.

I started back in July when the Lion King Piece of Disney Movies pins came out. I originally just wanted them because Lion King's my favorite movie, but then my friend introduced me to pin trading. I only collect Lion King ones, so it's harder as they are definitely not around as much. I only do cast member lanyard trading and look at boards, so it's definitely a challenge at times. I've bought two off eBay, some in parks, and some I've traded for. I probably have about 20-25 pins right now, most of them Lion King, except for a few traders.
