Treat Yourself with New Disney Pins

Just last month I had the opportunity to meet up with Pin Product Developers Jeanne Lewis and Julie Young. That’s not an easy feat, since they are both based at the Walt Disney World Resort. Luckily for us, I was able to get a few minutes of their time at the Sci-Fi Academy event where they took me through some of the pins you can expect to see this fall. Here are a few of my personal picks that I know you’re going to love.

Star Tours C-3PO Pin

Wondering when you can get your next Star Tours pin fix? Wait no more. On September 8, despite having “a bad feeling about this,” C-3PO will steer your course for adventure. Then you’ll only have one or two months to wait before Aly San San “Welcomes You” aboard with our next pin release on November 17. Don’t worry, that time will fly by.

Halloween Time 2011 Annual Passholder Pin

Now Annual Passholders, you might be asking… what about us? Well good news. There is a Silly Symphony Swings Annual Passholder pin “in store” for you on August 4 and right behind that release is a Halloween-inspired jumbo pin. Of course, you need to wait until pumpkins are in season at the Disneyland Resort for this one, so swing by the Disneyana Shop on September 17. Special Note: The artist will be on hand for the September 17 release as we will be celebrating the debut of our Halloween and Haunted Mansion Holiday inspired merchandise treats.

Gingerbread Mystery Pins

Before I go, there is one more set of pins you might want to get your taste buds ready for. The Haunted Mansion Holiday Gingerbread Mystery Collection debuts October 8. What a tantalizing “treat” for any Disney pin fan. The collection features replicas of the gingerbread displays that have been the focal point of the Haunted Mansion Holiday attraction for almost 10 years, created by our Entertainment Designers Brian Sandahl and Tim Wollweber. Brian and Tim will be on hand for a special signing of this collection as well, so mark your calendars now. Reminder: An online wristband opportunity will take place for this release so please watch DisneyPins.com for more information.

That’s all the pin news I have for now. But if I get any more scoop, I’ll post it right here on the Disney Parks Blog.


  • OMG! I can’t wait for these new pins!!! I’m so excited!!!!

  • Is Halloween Time a DLR exclusive or will it be at WDW?

    • The Halloween Time pin was created specifically for Disneyland Resort. It’s a really great pin. It’s amazing to see in person.

  • Will the Disney World Fastpass pin set return? What about the Limited Edition DCA Fastpasses to match the very popular Disneyland set or new pins for the Disneyland Resort Mickey hand Fastpass series?

    • Hey Tim,
      I haven’t forgotten you, I’m still trying to find out. Keep you posted.

  • What will the LE be for the pins? Any other Nightmare Befrore Ch5ristmas pins coming out? What are the prices? On September 17th are there pins also?
    Cannot Wait!!!!

    • Yvonne, for the Gingerbread Mystery Collection it is actually a limited release, which typically means it will only be available for a limited amount of time but there is no specific edition size associated with it. The price for this one is $24.95. Remember the Gingerbread Mystery collection is available October 8th and we will be doing an online wristband opportunity shortly. For the Jumbo Passholder HalloweenTime pin, it is an edition size of 750 and will be offered for $39.95 on September 17th. As for any other Nightmare Before Christmas themed pins being released, I can only say at this time, not to my knowledge, but I’ll keep you posted.

  • the gingerbread pins will it say the year on the pin like 2001 2002 ect.. and how many pins for the mystery will be there? i cant wait =-)

    • Hey Brett! I’m sorry for the delay, I was off for a few days. There are actually 10 pins in the collection, plus one mystery chaser pin. Unfortunately the years of each of the different designs are not listed.

  • WAY excited for NBC pins! Always look forward to see them
