    Anna Asked

    We will be traveling to DW next year. I have a DS age 15 that likes to pin trade but we have not allowed him to trade with the public. What is the policy with employees trading with his age youth and what can I expect from other traders in the parks?

    Pin trading has long been a favorite Disney activity for my now teenage daughters too, Anna.  They started trading pins when they were nine and six.  In our experience with pin trading over the years, we've found that other guests seldom ask to trade with our daughters.  It has happened on rare occasion, but typically the trading is done with Cast Members.  If you aren't comfortable allowing your son to trade pins with other guests, just politely decline if and when they approach you, but I wouldn't be overly concerned about it happening.  As for trading with Cast Members, guests can trade up to two pins per Cast Member per day.  The only caveat is that your son should offer to trade a pin that is not already displayed on the Cast Members lanyard.  The getting started section of the Official Disney Pin Trading website is a great resource for information!

    In addition to trading with Cast Members in the parks, be sure to stop by Downtown Disney's Pin Traders for additional trading opportunities!  Have fun and happy trading.
