3. Purchase trading pins on eBay.
If you’re a fan of Disney official pin trading, this one will save you a lot of money. Pins purchased inside the parks will cost you anywhere from $7 to $20 each, depending on the type of pin. That’s pricey enough to make you not want to trade at all! Instead of spending so much on each pin, go to eBay.com before your trip and purchase Disney trading pins in lots of 25, 50 or more for around $0.40 to $0.50 apiece. You’re likely to get pins in the lots that you’ve been wanting for your collection, and the rest can be used for trading with Cast Members in the parks. You might even get lucky and trade your forty-cent pin for a much more expensive pin on a Cast Member’s lanyard. You will save money and score some really cool pins at the same time.
