    We bought a bunch of pins to trade at the parks. I was planning to put them in our carry on but my husband is worried they will be confiscated by TSA. Does anyone have any experience or had them taken away?

    Thanks. That’s what I thought but I know that TSA can be unpredictable when it comes to sharp things...

    Tsa allows metal knitting needles.

    You’ll be fine.

    And scissors up to 4". It would be difficult to attack with Disney pins.

    Unless your pin bag was extra heavy and could knock someone out with a swing . . .:duck:

    I brought about 600 pins with me last year to trade in my carry-on (some older worthless-to-me pins) and I got pulled aside by TSA going there and coming back. Took maybe an extra 10 minutes (and coming back, they were also looking at my Entenmann's chocolate chip cookies [they used to sell these in CA but stopped at least 20+ years ago and the only place I find them is at WDW!])
