    • Have Fun! Disney Pin Trading can be a great way to interact with and meet Cast Members and other Guests.
    • The main criteria to judge whether a pin is tradable or not is that it must be a metal pin that represents a Disney Event, Location, Character or Icon. Some pins from our Operating Participants are also tradable, but must represent the Operating Participant in a way that has a specific Disneyland® Resort or Walt Disney World® Resort affiliation.
    • Pins should in good, undamaged condition.
    • Trade one pin at a time, hand to hand, with the backs attached.
    • Guests may trade a maximum of two pins with each Cast Member.
    • Guests may trade only one pin of the same style with a Cast Member.
    • When trading with Cast Members, Guests should offer a pin that is not already displayed on the Cast Member's lanyard.
    • Please refrain from touching another person's pins or lanyard. If you need a closer look, ask the person wearing the lanyard if they can bring it into clearer view for you.
    • Disney name pins may not be traded with Cast Members.
    • Gifts or money may not be exchanged or used in trade for a pin.
    • In addition to the 12 pins on Cast lanyards, some Cast Members may wear a "Showcase" pin. These "Showcase" pins are for demonstrations to our Guests and are not available for trade.

Join in a Cherished Disney Tradition

Get bitten by the pin-trading bug: Buy, trade with Cast Members and fellow collectors, and watch your collection grow!

Whether you’re an avid Disney pin trader or just getting started, this pin-trading location has everything you need, from starter kits to lanyards to carrying cases. If you wish to buy a single pin to remember your trip to the Disneyland Resort, you can do that too; but with an ever-changing selection of more than 60,000 pin designs, you may be hard-pressed to pick just one!

Wanna Trade?
Here’s how it works:

  1. Meet a Disney Cast Member wearing a pin-trading lanyard.
  2. Find a Disney pin with your favorite Disney character, attraction, movie or design.
  3. Trade your Disney pin with the Cast Member. (It should be a pin the Cast Member does not already have.)

New to pin trading? Get going with a starter set featuring a uniquely themed pin-trading lanyard and 4 Disney pins. Keep some, trade some and interact with Cast Members and Guests from around the world!

Did You Know?
Since the beginning, The Walt Disney Company has offered collectible Disney pins at every one of its parks and resorts around the world. The tradition of Disney pin trading as we know it today was introduced in October 1999, with the launch of the Millennium Celebration.

Pin Trading Just for Kids!

Though Disney pin trading is fun for all ages, kids ages 3 to 12 get an extra-special perk. At any Disney pin-trading location, look for Cast Members wearing teal-colored Kids Only lanyards, indicating that pins on that lanyard are only available for trading with our younger Guests. Kids can also trade with Cast Members wearing standard blue lanyards.
