Disney pin trading rises to a new level for the resort’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, with the introduction of Mystery Boxes, Mickey-themed boards, and virtual trading events.
In honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, trading Disney pins is even easier and more exciting than ever before. Whether you’re new to interactive pin trading or have a vast collection, there is something for everyone.
The steps are simple:
1) Seek out cast members with mystery boxes or Mickey-themed boards, and ask to make a trade (with Official Disney Trading Pins only). Each guest can make up to 2 exchanges per location.
2) To trade for a Mystery trading box, select any drawer from the pin box numbered from 1-24, and the cast member will exchange the pin in that drawer for the official Disney trading pin of your choice from your own collection.
3) To trade for a pin on a Mickey-themed board, choose a pin on the board that you’d like to trade for, and exchange it for the official Disney trading pin of your choice from your own collection.
It couldn’t be easier!
All guests can participate by seeking out the trading sites located all across the Walt Disney World Resort. Search for the pins that represent your favorite character or attraction on the pin boards, or let chance decide for you with a mystery box.
To ensure guests don’t miss any of the pin trading locations, each guide map for the 4 theme parks, Disney Springs, and select resorts will have pin-trading location designations.
In honor of Walt Disney World Resort’s anniversary, new pins celebrating the past, present, and future of The Most Magical Place on Earth will be released over the course of the next 18-months. Select anniversary pins will also be available on shopDisney.com.
