    How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    I was just curious. My kids will trade pins until their fingers bleed! I just got 50 traders for a 5 day trip to WDW and I'm beginning to think that it won't be enough!

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Hardly any I always feel bad making the group stop so I can look at pins.
    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...

    I end up going every weekend, so I trade about 5 to 6 times a day.

    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    On our last 10 day trip to WDW, we burned through 100, then ordered 100 more from our favorite vendor and had them delivered to our room. And burned through those. The kids traded like fiends and made quite a few friends with CMs who made the trip extra special.

    I have gone through 30 pins in one day at DL just last month. usually I trade 3-5 each trip(every week) depending on what I am looking for.

    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    I usually try to trade through my bag, which is now twice as big so I'm less stealth now. My little pin bag -used- to fit in my purse!

    I need to stock up on more traders before WDW in September!

    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    I will usually trade between 5 and 7 pins per day. I need to get names of some of these 'favorite vendors' though because I need to get a better way to stock up now other than buying VMK pirate pins to use as my traders.

    i wouldn't go to WDW with less than 200 traders in pocket, I know that sounds like a lot but once you get trading you can't stop and plus they'll come in handy when you go to DL.

    Re: How many pins do you trade in a day or trip?

    On a usual trip, pre scrappers I would trade upwards of 90-100 pins in 3-4 days (that is basically hunting lanyards, not riding many rides tho)

    This last trip, I only traded 20 in 2 1/2 days - but that was between rides, casually walking between stores, not making a huge effort... plus I am deathly afraid of scrappers... so that was plenty for me!
