Pin Trading at the Disney Animal Kingdom Resort

The Jambo House Disney Animal Kingdom Resort is a GREAT resort for trading Disney pins!
Trevon and Carolyn, an Animal Kingdom Cast Member
who we love to trade pins with
They have a Disney Pin Trading Book at the Bell Hop desk in the lobby and another Disney Pins Book at the Front Check in desk.

They also have a DVC (Disney Vacation Club) person who wears a lanyard located at the end of the lobby which is often a great place to find some Disney Collectable Trading Pins.

Front Desk Check In
Ask to see their pin book!
The Zawadi Marketplace, the resort gift shop,  has numerous cast members who wear Disney Pin Trading Lanyards.  You can trade up to 2 pins per person per cast member per day.

My favorite activity that only the Animal Kingdom Resort offers, and what makes it such a Great Disney Pin Resort, is Pin Trading with "King Pin", a special character who is at the Zawadi Marketplace Animal Kingdom Lodge, everyday from 3:00 to 3:30 pm.
(Appearance time may vary, please check upon arrival at the resort)
King Pin Animal Kingdom Lodge
He has a Disney Pin Satchel, a Pin Trading Lanyard or two, and also a Disney Pin Grab Bag.

You can give him one of your Disney Trading Pins and then reach into the Disney Pin Trading bag (without looking, that is why it is a mystery pouch) and feel around for the pin you want to trade for.  I found a great hard to find Disney Pin, a Chip and Dale Disney pin in the bag once!

King Pin is dressed in a Traditional African outfit and even has a red royal rug for you to stand on while you are pin trading with him.  This is a great opportunity for a Disney picture and I highly recommend bringing your camera to capture the special and fun Disney magic!

We're really big Disney Pin Collectors and are always out looking for new Hidden Mickey pins for our Disney Hidden Mickey Pin Collections.  We constantly buy pins at local yard sale, estate sales, and at the Disney World Outlet Stores in Kissimmee and Lake Buena Vista.
