    I will be attending this years pin event titled Disney Pin University . You can pin trade at the DTD Marketplace ... but beware some are real sticklers ( pin sharks) and take the fun out of it .
    MouseGears store at Epcot has a pin trading board at 5 PM everyday . You give two pins and pick two pins . Also the World Of Disney 2 PM and 6 PM has meets and trading boards . Contemporary holds pin meets & trading monthly, unsure which week .

    Great info thanks Tinker!

    Are these swaps "newbie friendly" :lol: or would I get taken for a ride unless I know pins really well?

    The only swaps "newbie friendly" are the pin events . Or any meet that is announced officially through Disney . Cast Members love answering newbie questions and interacting with guests .
