    After several trips, my DS9 and DS5 have decided to try pin trading next week. I know they can ask politely to see a CM's lanyard and trade, but aren't there other places to trade as well? I'm thinking I read once about a pin board or something in Downtown Disney? Maybe a hidden stroller or something at MK? If I'm making this up, please ignore me, I'm deep into packing at this point!:rotfl:

    ask at the resorts.....they have pin boards....however sometimes they only come out at certain times (5-5:30 at all all stars)
    also at the all stars they have pin boards out during the movies at night....
    ask for pin boards at stores in the parks...and all guest relations in all the parks have books....
    at Epcot there is a Duffy stroller with pins....you have to ask....he is at the stroller rental....also at Epcot on the store where you pick up your packages outside the turnstiles they have a spinny cube of pins...
    in dhs they have a pin board in the store next to the stroller rentals....

    we're here now and have had luck at all these places....just ask everywhere you go....if they don't have a board they will direct you to one...

    good luck! have fun!

    As the PP said, there are pin boards/things at various locations throughout WDW. Some are always visible, some only come out at specific times, and some are behind counters.

    These are the places where I've seen boards/items (or at least the ones I can remember):
    Poly resort upstairs gift shop (board)
    OKW gift shop (round life preserver)
    Sartoga Springs check-in desk (board)
    WL pin kiosk (book, always out)
    WL check-in desk (book, behind counter)

    AK on pathway to Camp Mickey-Minnie (board, out occasionally)
    Epcot at Mousegear (board, out occasionally)
    Epcot at pin shop (board, out occasionally)
    DHS at times board (board, out occasionally)
    MK Frontierland pin shop (vest, out most of the time)
    DTD at pin shop (wall, open at specific times)
