Older man pin trading with cast member

    Hi! My wife and I are visiting in December. What are some tips for trading pins as an adult? Secondly, we will be celebrating our anniversary at Artist Point. Do they have anything special available for these celebrations? Thanks!

    Greetings, Robert! I started collecting Disney Trading Pins when I was about 6, many years before it was an official past time at Walt Disney World Resort. I still collect and trade each time I visit and am teaching my kids about the fun.

    You may know that may Cast Members wear lanyards or pin displays on their uniforms. Feel free to step up and ask to see their pins, as they will gladly trade with you. Some even have “hidden” pins they will show you if you can answer a trivia question - or perhaps they will blind trade with you! You may trade 2 pins at a time with a Cast Member or official pin board. When you are celebrating your anniversary at Artist Point, be sure to step to the back of the Wilderness Lodge Main Lobby. Not only is there a large pin trading wagon, but a HUGE board where you can scope out new offerings and trade with guests. I prefer to visit the Parks and Resorts pin boards (a board, book or totem is in each Resort lobby, and many stores and rides also have official boards) because when they are put out each morning, they have a fresh array of pins which are really nice! For fresh fodder of my own to trade, I typically shop MousePinsOnline.com for a grab bag to sort through and trade; it’s a great price for REAL trading pins that a couple collects. It's not exactly a pin, but make sure you get your anniversary buttons from your concierge or parks ticket window to don all trip long. It may glean you some pixie dust like a celebratory cupcake at dinner. You can always visit Disney Floral and Gifts to surprise your wife with an in-room celebration, flowers, or something extra like the Minnie tote my husband gifted me.

    If you have more questions about your upcoming trip, please let me know. I’ll be happy to trade you some answers and you can keep all your pins! ~ Lindsey P.
