    I have some Pooh & Friends pins that I bought on our first visit and some are off Ebay. I no longer want them so I was going to take them back to WDW in December and try and trade them for Mickey/Steamboat Willie pins which I collect.
    If a CM is wearing a lanyard covered in pins.....does this mean they are traders?
    I also have a few duplicates of Mickey pins (can you believe I forgot I bought them at the beginning of our last trip and bought them again at the end of the trip!) so I can trade those too.
    Also, a couple of the Pooh pins are minis....will these trade too?

    I do believe that if a CM is wearing their pins they have to trade with whom ever is asking...

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    Unless they're wearing those green lanyards..those are for KIDS to trade only.
    Don't be shy! just go up and say "I WANT THAT PIN!"
    Any pin as long as it's a Disney pin, is up for trade. It's a "pin for pin" trade.
    People who say money doesn't buy happiness...don't know where to shop!

    No apologies here!! We love "newbies"!!!

    CM stands for "Cast Members" (otherwise known as "people who work in the parks") they can be anyone from shopkeepers to janitors and anything in between!

    Just to make your life a bit easier, you can always refer back to this in the future! It's a page full of helpful acronyms and abbreviations!

    Again, WELCOME!

    I got my favourite SW pin by trading with a CM in one of the resort shops.
