Almost NO Cast Members trading pins at DCA

What a bummer! Our first trip to DL (we normally go to WDW), we go into DCA, and my son has his pins already to trade. One little problem---only ONE Cast Member had pins to trade all day! Most of the stores had "pin boards," but in my opinion the pins they offered were pretty lame. At WDW, on the other hand, there seemed to be lots of Cast Members with pins.

We're going to DL itself tomorrow. Any recommendations on the best places to trade pins in DL and DCA?

Thanks in advance,
The Tucson Smiths

Pin trading just isn't as big at DL and DCA in comparison to at WDW.

It seems like there's usually only a few CMs that trade at DL as well.

Was the cast member at Oswald's? We have had good luck there.

We were in the parks a few weeks ago and my kiddos did notice that there weren't as many CM's trading as there were during their last trip. We had a couple of really fun trade experiences, though, at Oswald's and at Taste Pilots Grill.

As far as DL goes, pin traders meet by the dozens at Rancho del Zocalo in Frontierland, but they're hardcore collectors who aren't generally going to want to trade with kids. Other than that, I don't really remember where my kids traded in DL. Honestly, I think they traded more with other guests than they did with CM's.

I asked about this on the pin junkies page on facebook because I like trading as well. They said most shops have pin boards if not on the counter behind so if you ask for them you trade. If a Cm doesn't have a lanyard they may have a hip lanyard. Also World of Disney apparently have a plushie at every checkout with a lanyard on it.

Does anyone know if the haunted mansion hitchhiking ghost set of 3 are supposed to glow? They have that yellow on them that looks like it is supposed to glow, but mine don't.
