    What's the going rate for a bog standard pin at WDW these days please?

    Someone on these boards has very kindly supplied Steven with a lanyard and a few pins but no doubt he'll get more.:thumbsup:

    I'm thinking that they start somewhere around $6.50 for the simpler ones on up, of course. :yes:

    Just wondering, is it only disney that sells pins or do the other parks do them too? Sorry for hijacking your thread Dawn!

    The pins are now color coded. Each little kiosk will have a pricing sheet on it showing what color corresponds with what price. They do start out around $6.95 and then go up from there.

    Ahh that makes sense Johnie. Adrian made the silly mistake about explaining pin trading to Steven. :nono:

    Please no one mention pressed pennies. :mental:

    Pressed pennies are the best, we have a very large collection of them from our 3 visits and will more than likely get some this year.

    Buy a lot of pins for trading from ebay Dawn before you go . I get a lot of 20 for around $15.00 . Much cheaper than buying them in the park and then trading it .

    I brought loads of pins off Ebay last year for the kids to trade when we got there.

    The trouble was they liked most of them and didn't want to trade
