Probably too soon to think about, but even right before the parks shut down, the coronavirus was affecting park pin trading (at least at DLR). People were wearing masks in the pin trading picnic area. I was carrying hand sanitizer the last couple of visits and using it between trades and would go wash my hands after spending time in the picnic area. But to that point, the Cast Members were still wearing lanyards and trading with guests. But in a post-coronavirus world - even if just in the short term - it's interesting to think about how pin trading in the parks may be affected. I have no insight, but I'd guess that for the time being Cast Members would stop wearing lanyards to trade pins with guests. Boards might become more common as then the Cast wouldn't be directly exposed to whatever guests were trading and could wipe down the boards each night before putting them away. Guest to guest trading (i.e. in Frontierland where people set up across all benches with their boards and books or in the picnic area) might be allowed at guests' own risk, or might be discouraged or even banned for a time. Not sure how hard a line the parks will decide on this. Probably will also depend on how quickly an effective treatment can be made available and ultimately, a vaccine. But I've really been wondering how park trading specifically will be conducted in the early days of parks re-opening. It would truly make me sad if it were stopped, but I would understand putting a temporary pause, or even just a pause between Cast and guests. Although it is part of the truly magical interactions that happen daily in the parks and help socialize both shy kids and adults through this interaction. Plus the hunt for pins is always fun. I think there are ways to do trading as safely as possible - and part of that would be being a responsible guest and perhaps wiping down pins with cleaning wipes before and after trades, and of course not trading with anyone if you're sick. What do you think the immediate future of pin trading will be in the parks? What about the long term? Pin trading is literally one of the most hands-on activities one can have between people in the parks. I hope we can all find a safe way to continue doing what we love! Though most of all, I hope for a cure/treatment and a vaccine ASAP! People before pins, always.
