If you're staying at the Polynesian, Becky, you might consider taking the monorail over to the Contemporary on Friday evening.  There is weekly pin-trading there, on the Grand Concourse, every Friday evening (starting about 7pm, I think).  They have a special trading area reserved for kids, so your 12-year-old might have some fun.

Also, the pin cart in the rear of the lobby at the Poly's Great Ceremonial House is one of my favorite places to buy pins.   The CMs there always seem to be extra friendly and the selection is always good.

Rose, thank you so much for this information!  It helps with planning.  I know I will probably be free Friday evening as I will have the 4 year old while the big kids go over to MK to make it in for E-Ride Night.  Might enjoy checking out the trading.  Love you insiders!  You have all the great tips!  And the more I hear about the Poly, the more excited I get about staying there!  Thanks again! :bowdown:

In answering the original question. I do think that less CM's are wearing lanyards. We were just at WDW a few weeks ago and it didn't seem like nearly as many were wearing them as in Dec. when we were there. :(  Hopefully this will change and they will get back to wearing them. :minnie:

Becky,

On our trip in May I got my 4 year old a Buzz Lightyear lanyard.  He loved it, but didn't want to really wear it too much, it was uncomfortable for him.

However, when I showed him what to do (ask a CM to look at their pins) and I let him know that he could pick WHATEVER one he wanted, he was thrilled.  From then on, he didn't really want to take it off - and if he did, it had to be within easy reach.

By the time we left, we couldn't get passed a CM that was wearing a lanyard without him wanting to trade.  There were a couple of times that we left the lanyard back in the room and he was VERY upset!!

Just a thought, your 4 yr old might like this too.

I don't remember, are you staying concierge?  If so, you can have them pick up the lanyard for you and have it in your room for your arrival (you will need to privide them with a CC#).  This is what we did and my son thought that Mickey himself gave him the lanyard :)

Hey, Beth, great tips on pin trading for the younger set!  I need to get ahold of concierge this week before we leave, maybe I'll add that to my requests!  I have a lanyard of my own. It's not Disney--it's Mary Englebreit--says, "It's good to be queen" on it!  That's what DH calls me.  And today, my youngest delivered a diet Coke to me and said, "here you go, your majesty."  When I said, "thank you," he said, "you're welcome, my Queen!" just like Daddy does!   :nod:

I am a little shy about the pin tradeing thing. I tryed it once at ASMo with a CM but the CM wasn't very helpful to a newbie. :unhappy:  I am the Once bitten twice shy kinda preson.  no matter how many time I read no how to pin trade I just don't get it. :crazy:  Do you have any advice for someone like Me?

can you tell me how to tell a lanyard series pin is that one only for lanyards not for regular sale- also I think when the ds stopped carrying pins everyone got them at a great sale price - I did .62  and then they flooded the lanyards in the parks that is why you see all ds pins now so they may be cutting back or the fad may be slowing just a thought we sure did bring a lot of pins with us and traded like mad- will miss that this trip!

The lanyard series pins you can only get from a cm they can't be bought. You can get a pin book the one I have is disneyana and it has pictures of all of the different pins.HTH :minnie:

:unhappy:

....and in my humble opinion, WDW has sorta overdone it with pins.  I have probably 1500+ in a box under my bed from my CM days....it used to be that, while you had to be fanantical about it, you could theoretically have every pin out.  Now, there are just way too many, IMHO.
