I love wandering around looking for friendly cast members with pins. Innoventions is a great place to go to check out pins and escape from the sun and heat. My funniest experience pin trading was in Innoventions when I walked up to Doyle and asked him if I could look at his pins. He cheerfully agreed and we chatted about pins for a while. I told him I'd like his "mystery pin," one that is placed backwards on the lanyard so you don't know what you're getting. I told him I had a mystery pin in my pocket for him too!
We each held out our pin for the other and opened our hands...and we were each holding the same exact pin! I had just traded for the same pin! We burst out laughing and made the trade! Doyle said in all his time pin trading, that had never occurred and the odds were incredible! He also said I didn't have to go through with the trade, but how could I not?
