Disneyland Resort updated its website with official guidelines for pin trading in theme parks and officially banned the use of benches to display pins.
In an update on its website, Disneyland outlined the new policy: “Benches or any other structures for the display of pins will not be permitted. Benches are for seating purposes only.”
As part of the new guidelines, trading (outside use of the lanyard) will only be permitted near Westward Ho Trading Company in Disneyland Park from park open to 3pm daily (subject to change).
There are also new limits on items you bring for trading.
Here are the relevant updates added to the website today:
- Guest Pin Trading: Guest Pin Trading, outside of the use of a lanyard, will only be permitted in Disneyland Park near Westward Ho Trading Company, as directed by a Cast Member or a sign with the exact location, from park opening to 3:00 PM daily (subject to change).
- Limit the Items You Bring: Only one trading bag, 14″L x 12″W x 6″H (36cm x 31cm x 16cm) or smaller, is permitted. Guests should only utilize a single trading bag for pin trading activities. No additional decorations or collateral (e.g., lights, signage, displays, etc.) will be permitted.
- No Use of Benches: Benches or any other structures for the display of pins will not be permitted. Benches are for seating purposes only.
- Attend to Your Items: Traders must stay with their items for the entire time they are displaying or trading.
I asked Disneyland Resort about the changes and they provided an update, stating the policies will enhance the guest experience for all guests.
