- Are pins available to search and pay for online?

- Hi Catherine!
Pin Trading is a favorite activity for my family during our visits to Walt Disney World, the kids love to check out cast members lanyards searching for a favorite character. There are certainly ways to buy pins online before you leave on your vacation. Amazon and eBay are two great ways to get started with Pin Trading without breaking the bank. You can often find what are called "lots" for sale that will have multiple pins allowing you to get some wonderful pins at a fractions of the cost. If you happen to get pins that your not crazy about, find a cast member and trade away!
As with buying any products through Amazon or eBay, make sure to check a seller's rating and buyers feedback before purchasing. Unfortunately, there are sellers that will sell fake Disney Trading Pins or what is known as "scrappers" that you won't be able to trade in the parks. If you are concerned about potentially buying fakes, I would suggest purchasing them from the Disney Store online.
I hope this helps and please visit us again if you have anymore questions!
