So this may be a dumb question but remember I am brand new to Disney Land. When I was there I saw CM trading pins with people, and one of them looked like she didn't want to give up her pin. Do they have to give up their pins? Do they get pins every morning before the shift starts to help with the trading.
Nothing wrong with this question! :o) Anyone? - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz   1191.5 #183 7-8-11 12:22PM Like  Reply

I always feel bad asking but one day I was in the shop right across from the jungle cruse and a CM(cute little girl )asked me "do u trade pins or just keep them all" I said I trade some of them and she showed me all of hers and said "pick anyone u want" how great was she!! - lisaw   240.4 #1629 7-8-11 12:42PM Like  Reply
There is a CM that we usually see at Tiki room and she covers up her pins and turns away when she see's us coming...until we ask nice! She is just kidding and very nice and very knowledgeable because she also collects. - SueBayou   2019.2 #99 7-8-11 12:43PM Like  Reply
I think that if the lanyard is one issued ot them by Disneyland they hve to trade but if they have their personal one they can pick and choose. I might be wrong but I remember coming across a CM who did that a while ago. - LiloCyntax   170.0 #2588 7-8-11 12:44PM Like  Reply
@lisaw Aww that was so sweet of her :) I've met a few really nice people while pin trading. It's a friendly social hobby to me. - Kellykitty   7.8 #14750 7-8-11 12:46PM Like  Reply
I believe that the pins must be Disney related for trading as well. - proudcanuck   478.6 #527 7-8-11 12:46PM Like  Reply
I went into westward ho and my boyfriend asked her the riles of trading cause he didn't have any pins yet she told us they have to trade. They get the pins in the morning and they're not theirs. They normally have their own set but they dont show them while they're working they just have their cm set. So it doesn't really matter if you trade cause its not there's to begin with - niickayy   23.3 #7517 7-8-11 12:48PM Like  Reply

If you see me, I'll be delighted to explain pins to you! - BaseballMickey   9258.1 #14 7-8-11 12:55PM Like  Reply
A CM told me before that the pins they trade is not there's to keep it's Disney own so they have to trade.. Now you see some CM members that have 1 or 2 on there clothes that's there personal and they don't have to trade those.. & CM carry dif colors.. Like if you see there pins on a teal color thingy it's only for kids to trade.. I DONT TRADE PINS but a CM told me all about it.. Lol - HOTDOGsMOMMY   66.5 #4562 7-8-11 1:00PM Like  Reply
Ya every time we come into work we pick up lanyards and sometimes there is a bucket of new pins so we can put new ones on and they are not ours personally its Disneylands and if you ask to trade with us we will we have to trade with anyone who asks but its ok because they are not ours and even if we bring in our personal pins we still have to trade :-) hope that makes sense :-) I think the only reason someone might not trade is because it might not be their lanyard they could be watching it for someone but that rarely happens - Timechaser_cm   265.3 #1356 7-8-11 1:00PM Like  Reply
