Look up at the windows when walking down Main Street in MK.
Explore little nooks and crannies and most of all take time to interact with the cast members. We have all enjoyed random conversations with so many cm's and years later our girls still remember these. Pin trading is especially good to strike up conversations.

I find that when we slow down the pace and really explore rather than rushing from ride to ride is when the magic happens and our best memories are made.
When we were in DLP last year we loved walking down Main Street! It was relaxing even when it was crowded!

Ive always wanted to ask about pin trading, how exactly does it work, who do you trade with and is it certain locations?

Loads of CMs either wear pins or have them on a board. If they have one you want you swap one of yours (must be official Disney pin). Pins aren't cheap (most single ones start from $8.99). We found our kids didn't want to trade the ones they'd bought! I keep meaning to look on eBay to see if we can get a deal on a job lot.

We bought pin trading starter kits with pins the girls weren't that bothered about to trade. They loved trading with the CM's.

They sell them in most shops onsite. We got a star wars one with a lanyard. Apparently there are loads of official Disney pins for sale on eBay for a couple of quid each.

And many of them are fake.

You can often pick up cheap pins for trading in the Disney Outlets.
