Looking to start a new collection and bring home some souvenirs?  Why not take a look at the world of Disney Pin Trading!  It’s a great hobby that the entire family can do together.



5th Anniversary

Pins can be traded at all 4 parks, Disney Springs, and in the gift shop at each resort.


If you are just beginning, you can purchase starting lanyards with pins at almost any gift kiosk/store on Disney property. We highly recommend the pin trading kiosk at Disney Springs as they have a great selection.


If you decide to purchase pins online, be very careful that the pins you purchase are authentic Disney pins. Cast members are not obligated to trade unauthorized pins.

Pin Trading Guide


When participating in Pin Trading activities remember these few steps: 

  • Meet a Disney Cast Member wearing a pin-trading lanyard or accessory or holding a pin board.
  • Find a Disney pin with your favorite Disney character, attraction, movie, or design.
  • Trade your Disney pin with the Cast Member. (it should be a pin the Cast Member does not already have.)
  • Pins must be Authorized Disney pins…all of which can be purchased onsite.
Pin Trading Etiquette


  • Only official Disney pins may be traded. One indicator of official pins (among other factors) is that they are metal and display “©Disney” on the back.  Cast Members may determine not to trade a pin in their discretion.
  • Pins should be in good, undamaged, tradable condition with the pin backing attached.
  • For a safe trading experience, please trade one pin at a time.
  • Guests may trade a maximum of 2 pins per Cast Member or trading board, per day.
  • Please refrain from touching the pin or lanyard of a Cast Member of Guest. If you need a closer look, just ask.
  • Okay to Trade
    • Pins from other business units of The Walt Disney Company (e.g., ABC, ESPN) may be traded, as determined by the Cast Member
    • Operating participant pins that show a Disney, Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort affiliation are generally accepted for trading.
  • Not Okay to Trade
    • Unauthorized pins, plastic pins, rubber pins or other nonmetal pins.
    • Personalized name pins.
    • Brooch-style or clasp pins.
    • Disney Service Award pins, Disney Legacy Award pins, Spirit of Disneyland Resort pins, Partners in Excellence pins or Cast Member costume pins (i.e., Host/Hostess Badges, Disney Trainer).
