Disney Pin Trading is a popular activity that Disney fans enjoy while at the Disney World parks and there are plenty of opportunities for trading throughout Magic Kingdom. One hidden pin location at the park that not everyone knows about is in Storybook Circus.

Secret Pin Trading Location at Big Top Souvenirs (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)

You’ll find the secret pin trading location inside Big Top Souvenirs. This is the large souvenir store in the Storybook Circus section of Fantasyland.

While they do have plenty of Disney pins for sale, there is also a secret pin trading board but the only way you will find out about it is if you ask.

Just ask one of the Cast Members if they know where the popcorn is.

At that point they should bring out a huge tray of what looks like popcorn but in fact, pin cushions that look like popcorn!

This popcorn pin bucket works just like any other Disney pin board location, you can trade up to two pins.
