Hello! I haven't actually started pin trading yet; I don't go to Disney Land until April (and I've never been there before!). I didn't even know it was a thing until, funny enough, I was researching LegoLand and they kept mentioning figure trading and how it was akin to pin trading at Disney. After looking into it I want pins! I've just ordered some slightly less expensive ones (disney store sale and sealed mystery packs from ebay) to get ready. Though, after reading more I'm worried that every pin I see in the park will be fake. So I'm trying to tell myself if I see pins I really like it doesn't really matter. But I still have an air of unease going into things. We shall see. Even still, it's fun to look up the kitty and princess pins that I'd like and all the Sleeping Beauty ones my daughter would.
