    I am planning a WDW trip and I never get the chance to get over that way and trade with King pin. However, I planning out my day at Animal Kingdom and thinking about doing one of the hotel restraunts for a meal. I would like to time it well to meet with King Pin, so questions:

    Is he around every day ?
    If so, what time ?
    And in which gift shop ?

    Thanks !

    Just left the Jambo house trading today
    Pin trading is daily at 2 pm
    Trading area is just right of the gift shop in the jambo house
    King pin is usually trading Monday - Friday
    Village merchants do the trading on the weekends

    You can trade off the board or try your luck with the mystery bag. Got two new Hidden Mickeys so not bad, but today‚Äôs cup cakes were great.[​IMG]

    King Pin is a pin trading personality located at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. He has his own pin. (See 2018 pin tag #12 for me).

    He has a royal red carpet where people can trade with him. He is wonderful in the royal role so the trading experience has a little extra special feel. The kids feel special and love trading with him. He had a mystery bag from which you could pull a pin and pins on several lanyards when trading with him. The same rules apply with him as any other cast member.
