1. Keep your eye out for exclusive pins.  

Did you know there are Disney pins that are exclusive for cast member trading for a limited time? It’s true! Eagle-eyed guests may find pins from new Hidden Disney pin sets while trading across Walt Disney World. Each set contains five standard and uniquely themed designs.  

Later this year, a retail mystery pouch will be available with the original five pins, plus a sixth pin in each set — known as a “chaser” pin. For those who love an even bigger challenge, within the retail mystery pouch there will be a NEW element this year with the introduction of a “super chaser” pin in one particular set — an even rarer find!

2. Don’t be afraid to ask!

When you spot a cast member with a pin trading board or wearing a special pin accessory, be sure to ask them how you can join in the fun with Disney Pin Trading.  Or if you’re already an avid trader, tell the cast member about your favorite pin and they’ll share a story about theirs, too!

3. There’s a pin for every special memory.  

Disney Pin Trading isn’t just about collecting pins; it’s about capturing the unforgettable moments of your Disney adventure. Whether you want to commemorate your first ride on Space Mountain, or remember your favorite Disney snack (turkey leg, anyone?) – there’s a pin for that!   

4. Embrace the chase. 

44-year cast member Wayne has been a Disney pin trader from the very beginning, and guests come from far and wide just to trade with him! Wayne takes pride in helping guests “chase” that elusive pin they may be missing. Searching for that one pin may be frustrating at times, but don’t give up – it may just turn up where you least expect it!
