    Where to trade at DLR?

    Making my first trip in March. Wanting to get a heads up about where are the better places to trade and how to navigate the parks. Going to be on a tight schedule but want to get some trading in.

    Re: Where to trade at DLR?

    Here are some of my hotspots I love to hit while I am there.

    1. All DVC stand workers (ie. tomorrowland, Central Hub, 2 in DTD, Paradise Pier, and Hollywood Boulevard). Usually unnoticed.

    2. The front Indiana Jones workers (in the morning). Always stocked with new Cast lanyard pins.

    3. If you are in line and you see a CM with it, they usually have better pins. Hop out of line and ask.

    4. Top Floor of innoventions. Great trades there (I have even scored a 100 Mickey's Pin up there)

    5. The information kiosk workers at both DCA and DL. I find great LE and CL pins there frequently.

    6. World of Disney. Walk around for 10 minutes in there and you will ususally see between 4-8 CM's with lanyards,

    7. Smaller pin carts (i.e Lhoad Bangs and the Main street cart). Sometimes you can get lucky, but usually not too much.

    8. HOTEL GIFT SHOPS!!!! I have the best luck in those stores. just walking around the hotels you can spot CM's, and they usually have good stuff to trade.

    9. Fantasyland Workers (outside attractions and shops). Cross your fingers, as you can get some good pins here, but only in the morning.

    10. Greetings from California and Engine-Ears Toys. Both DCA shops are overlooked because they aren't as big as the Emporium or WoD. Cm's usually are pretty stocked.

    That's the best locations I know. The biggest suggestion I have is do it in the morning. The Cm's restock their pins and throw out the bad ones everyfew days, and If you are lucky, you can score some complete sets of CM pins (In december last year I got the entire CL snowflake set in a matter of 15 minutes.)

    Hope this helps, and Have fun!

    In addition to all the places, zeppelindude just mentioned, beginning at 1 pm I believe (maybe 1:30 pm), 3 CM's will set up trading tables outside of the Westward Ho pin shop in Frontierland. The lines fill up pretty quickly so get there as soon as you can.

    Re: Where to trade at DLR?

    Thanks, I was wondering if they still did the pin trading tables.
    Do they still do the DCA one too?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    If you're talking about the ones outside of PT Flea's, I haven't seen any trading going on there since the summer. Even then, it was only for the Pin Odyssey event.

    However, there is always trading outside of the DTD pin store (tradeatyerownrisktradeatyerownrisk!)

    I like this area except at the right end (facing the traders) are the professional traders who are SO shady to me! They are at the end.

    Yeah... before that event they would be out there sometimes too.

    I never trade w/the pros. I'm sure I don't ave anything they want, and they're really scary and intimidating!!
