How I Started Disney Pin Trading

by Jill:

It all started with this Tigger pin, a gift from my friends Nick and Barbie.

I was instantly hooked on pin trading. I decided to stick with the theme of Hundred Acre Wood characters, to keep the crazy to a minimum, and I then began my hunt.

Cast members with a green lanyard are only allowed to trade with kids. But pin trading is meant for everyone and most of the characters were easy to find by trading with other cast members.

After you leave Walt Disney World, Ebay and your local flea market are great places to search for more pins.

I'm a socially awkward introvert, but even I find this to be not only a fun thing to do, but also an easy way to break out of my shell and talk to people.

My husband even joined in the fun looking at lanyards and pin booths for our favorite characters.

There is a ton to do and see at Disney World. Pin trading was a great addition to our trip. I highly suggest getting into it.

Thank you Nick & Barbie for introducing me to Disney Pins! 


  1. So that is the problem! I have too many themes! =)

  2. I love this post, it would be awesome if you would write up a post on how you so lovingly display them. I'm drooling over your collection!
