    So I haven't bought any pins before but think might go for it this year as I like the look of some of them and love collecting things! Could someone explain how pin trading works as I keep hearing people mentioning it? What do I need to get me started? Thanks! :thumbsup2

    My son got a lanyard and a few pins on it in WDW last year and had a great time trading them in paris - a lot of the cast members wear pins and everywhere we went they asked him if he wanted to trade he got rid of some he traded last year and got some really cool ones

    You can get pins and the lanyards in most shops they have different collections ie starwars toy story and also limited edition ones as well as every character you could possibly think of

    Even i wore his lanyard and got into the spirit of things

    Go for it i loved it !!

    We usually buy a pins on ebay before we go to Disneyland in California. There are a lot of sellers that sell "lots" or pick your amounts. The pins are super cheap that way and all can be traded in the parks. At least the parks in US. Just make sure the listing says "all pins trade able" and that they are not knock offs.
