Disney has just announced a new way to trade pins at the Walt Disney World resort. Here’s the latest:
Beginning Oct. 15, we’re introducing pin trading mystery boxes and Mickey-themed boards – a new, interactive and fun way to trade official Disney Trading Pins.
As we commemorate the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration, these boxes and boards are designed for fun for the whole family. You can hunt for pins honoring your favorite characters, attractions and so much more on the Mickey-themed pinboards, or be delightfully surprised by choosing a numbered pin from one of our mystery boxes.
Here’s how they work:
Locate a cast member with a pin trading mystery box or Mickey-themed board and present an Official Disney Trading Pin to exchange. (up to two exchanges per location)
Mystery trading boxes: Select a drawer from the pin box numbered 1-24. The cast member will open the drawer and present you with your mystery pin in exchange for your Disney pin.
Mickey-themed boards: Search the trading board for the Disney pin you would like to trade. The cast member will remove your desired pin from the board and give it to you in exchange for your Disney pin.
It’s that simple!
New pin boxes and boards can be found in locations across Walt Disney World Resort. To make pin trading even more convenient, these locations are designated in guide maps and include all four theme parks, Disney Springs and select resort locations.
