    What is on your lanyard? And what do you have hanging on the end of it?

    I was just having a quick look at them as i think it will be nice for dd who will be 4 when we go to have something like this!

    I don't have a lanyard but I've seen folk with clear plastic credit card sized holders on them and they had fastpasses in them.
    Also seen the larger pins hanging from the ends of lanyards.

    This is one of the ones I have for my pins, as you can see you could put anything you would like in the plastic holder, the only thing I will say is don't put to many pins on it as she will find it a little heavy to wear,

    A good thing to put in the plastic holder would be a piece of paper with her details on, this is something friends of mine have done.

    they dont just need to see a disney character to leg it - something they are very good at is disappearing and giving you a heart attack!

    Had a look in the disney shop today but they only had 1 lanyard, thought i might have a look on ebay again and get her a princess one or something, they had lots on there!

    Ebay is definitely your best deal, Kate . You can get anything from a starter lanyard that has up to 4 - 8 pins for trading . Or type in lot of Disney pins and you can buy a lot of 10 pins for under $20.00 for her to trade . Much cheaper than Disney . :yes:

    I wear a lanyard every day at work so I rarely wear one at WDW. My work one is a USC Trojans Lanyard in Cardinal and Gold. It has a badge holder attached to the end of it that allows me to pull on the string and put my badge up to the badge reader.

    I have three lanyards (I'm greedy). I have one that looks like an olympic gold medal that has lots of the 2004 olympic pins on it, a blue generic one that I put a giant pin on and then just some traders, and a black one with dragons on that has a dragon themed mickey head weight thing that you can buy in the shops - thats where my cast lanyard pins or LE sets go when I'm showing off.

    I miss going to DW. Three years is too long...

    I only have one lanyard. It's my Tower of Terror one I got a number of years ago. Like John, mine holds my work id and entry card rather than any Disney pins.

    I'm so lame! :sigh:

    Tom :)macwave:... I just don't need yet another collection!)

    We have the plastic card holders on the end of ours and we carry our room key and park passes in there.

    As far as pins I have two plutos, Wall-E, a Disney conservation pin and my Adventures Club Member pin.

    I have 2 lanyards. My older one has Mickey Mouse ears and heads on it, which I collect. On the end of that one, I have a Disneyland Castle.

    I also collect Haunted Mansion and Halloween pins, so my second lanyard has Haunted Mansion pins. On the end of that one is a gargoyle with the black light pen to make some of the pins light up.

    Pin Trading is one of our favorite things to do when at the parks.
