    Trading with CM's

    Last time we were visiting (2008) I noticed some of the CM's had blue or green rectangles with pins on them and the rest had lanyards.. we asked if we could trade with one of CM's with a blue rectangle and they said it was only for under 11's or something anyone know what the difference with the blue and green rectangles is as opposed to the lanyards?

    Same thing. The blue lanyard/pin pouch thing are for all traders, the green is for children.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    that's what it is couldn't remember what it was. I knew one of the colours was for under 11's only cos we tried to trade with someone that had one last time and couldn't!

    A male CM got a bit huffy with me last time we were there cos he had a baby tigger one I wanted and I gave him a girly tinkerbell one instead.. I'm still not sure if he was messing or not about the girly badge but he traded anyway!

    Sounds cool I think the restorts have exclusive pins to each eresort as well don't they? That's downside to staying off site Oh well we only use the room to sleep in anyway

    The CM lanyards technically do not belong to the CMs (they are given out by the work locations). So the pins do not belong to the CMs. Henceforth, I would not feel bad about pin trading with CMs.

    Yeah that was my thinking as well.. Which is why I wasn't sure if the CM was messing over the girly tinkerbell badge or not!
