Disney Pin Trading –Guidelines For Guests:

Disney Pin Trading is magical fun for the whole family! The most important guideline to remember is to have fun collecting or trading the Disney pins you like.

•The main criteria to judge whether a pin is trade-able or not is that it must be a metal pin bearing a “©Disney”mark on the back that represents a Disney Event, Place or Location, Character or Icon.
•Pins should be in good, undamaged, trade-able condition.
•For a safe trading experience, please trade one pin at a time, hand to hand with pin backs attached.
•Guests may trade a maximum of two (2) pins per Cast Member, per day.
•Please refrain from touching a Cast Member’s or Guest’s pins or lanyard. If you need a closer look, kindly ask the Cast Member or Guest wearing the lanyard if she or he can bring it into clearer view for you.
•Monies, gifts or receipts may not be exchanged or used in trade for a pin.
•When trading with a Cast Member, Guests should offer a pin that is not currently displayed on the Cast Member’s lanyard.
•Pins from other business units of The Walt Disney Company (i.e. ABC, ESPN) are accepted for trade.
•Operating participant pins that show a Disney, Disneyland® Resort, or Walt Disney World® Resort affiliation are accepted for trading.
•Plastic pins, rubber pins or other non-metal pins are not accepted for trading.
•“Personalized Name”pins are not accepted for trade.
•“Broche style”or “clasp pins”are not accepted for trade.
•Disney Service Award pins, Spirit of Disneyland® Resort pins, Partners in Excellence pins or Cast Member costume pins (i.e. Host/Hostess Badges, Disney Trainer) are not trade-able.

Disney Pin Trading Location Etiquette Guidelines:
•Limit of one table for each Pin Trader.
•Limit of one bag/binder on the Pin Trading Table.
•Limit of one bag/binder in the Pin Trading location.
•Tables may not be moved, and please . . .
•Be courteous and always remember to follow Disney Pin Trading etiquette as outlined above. Thank you!

The location etiquette guidelines are for specific trading locations at Disney Parks. These guidelines are designed to ensure the safety and courtesy of participants, maintain the show quality of the pin trading areas, and provide an enjoyable experience for all of our Guests.

In California, these location etiquette guidelines currently apply to the designated pin trading areas at Disney’s Pin Traders at Downtown Disney® District, and Little Green Men Store Command and Westward Ho Trading Co. in Disneyland® Park.

In Florida, these location etiquette guidelines currently apply to the designated pin trading areas at Disney’s Pin Traders at the Downtown Disney® Marketplace and Pin Central at Epcot®.

Guidelines are subject to change without notice. Guests suspected of abusing the guidelines or the pin trading process may be subject to, among other things, removal from the resort premises.
