    Disneyland Pin Traders

    Just a question - maybe a few of you are experts and can help me. I would like to know the name of an ebay seller or website, where I can get really cheap disney pins to trade. My kids just love to trade at the park, I spend a small fortune every time we go (mostly from ebay bought pins) - I go on ebay all the time - and have found a few sellers that sell pins for around $2.00 -$3.00 a pin (like I said, they're just for trading, they don't need to be speical) But, they charge ridiculous shipping amounts.

    Anyone know of a good seller, with good prices and decent shipping charges?

    I never thought about doing that. That's a good idea.

    Collectablememories.net sells grab bags for about $3.00 per pin, you can buy them in bags of 15 or 25 and that includes free shipping and handling.

    Re: Disneyland Pin Traders

    Check on Dizpins.com, there is a Disneyana show & sale about every 2 months over at one of the local (to DL) hotels. A number of dealers sell grab bags of traders that are $1 - $2/pin. One dealer in particular, Karl, is a very good source for traders.

    Re: Disneyland Pin Traders

    You can also try the Disney outlet stores. There is one open in Fullerton year round (someone correct me if I'm wrong about this) and here in Arizona, there is one that is open occasionally at the mall in Chandler. There's also one that's been open for quite a while in Las Vegas at the outlet center. Sometimes they'll have pins for anywhere from $1 each to $4 + each. My daughter stocks up when she sees cheap pins and uses them for trading with CMs. Perhaps someone will have a link to the store so you can check if there are any outlets that open periodically in your area, or you can always hit the Fullerton store when you go to Disneyland to see if they have pins at that time.

    Re: Disneyland Pin Traders

    We stopped by the Fullerton Outlet a couple of months ago - they only had $5.00 pins.

    OMG are you SERIOUS?! The one that just opened here by my house in the Ontario Mills does not sell pins. It is fairly new though. Maybe I should give it time. But which one is in Fullerton. I didn't know about that.

    The outlets I've been to do not always have pins in stock. You have to check back frequently. My daughter once bought six (should have picked up more!) Canada pins (probably originally sold in Epcot) for $1 each at the outlet in Chandler, AZ. Other times there have been no pins.
    Recently we were in Las Vegas and they had pins for, I think, $3.95 each, still a deal considering she just wanted them for trading.
    The store in Fullerton is in a strip-type mall. I'm sorry I don't know the exact name of it, but it was Orange something or had Orange in the name. Probably one of the locals would know.
    Happy hunting!

    Re: Disneyland Pin Traders

    I believe the one in Fullerton is called the 'Disney Character Outlet Store', it is on Orangethorpe, 1 block east of Harbor Blvd.

    Try your local Disney Store. They tend to carry pins from time to time, although the costs have increased as the pin styles have become more elaborate for TDS pins, but they also go on sale too!
