Are you ready to party? You might think I’m saying it because the summer season is right around the corner, but in fact, it’s time for all of us to start thinking about Disney Pin Celebration 2016, themed to … Pixar Party!
This “totally wicked” event is slated to take place August 26 (from 10 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.) and August 27, 2016 (from 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.) at World ShowPlace in Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort. Join us as we celebrate 30 colorful years of Pixar Animation Studios! This award-winning studio has produced a myriad of full length feature films, shorts, (Car) Toons, and television specials full of colorful characters that we love and cherish. The pins for the Pixar Party will feature characters from “Cars” to “Brave” to “infinity and beyond.” The event team shared as many details as they could with me, so here’s the scoop!
Admission to Pixar Party is $140 per guest and includes the following:
- Trading Board Games (four (4) vouchers per day)
- Pixar Party Scavenger Hunt
- Auction Opportunity (includes pre-production pins, artist proof pins and more)
- Meet Disney Pin Merchandisers
- Artist Signings with Disney Design Group Artists
- One (1) $30 Disney Gift Card
Other event offerings include:
- First opportunity to pre-purchase select themed Pixar Party merchandise via the Random Selection Process
- Limited Edition Commemorative Gifts
- Welcome Pin
- Pixar Party Scavenger Hunt Six (6) Pin Gift Set (previously found on trading boards)
- Goodbye Pin Set
Here’s a look at the Pixar Party event merchandise catalog. Some of these designs are absolutely “incredible!”
Hungry for more? There’s even a “Little Chef” Breakfast you can sign up for, which includes a breakfast buffet, trading time inside the Pixar Party venue (from 8:30 a.m. – 10 a.m.) and a limited-edition commemorative gift pin – available only to breakfast attendees. Keep in mind this package sells out fast.
Sign up for the Pixar Party beginning Thursday, April 28, 2016. Ticket Sales begin at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on DisneyParksMerchandise.com. Reminder: Event admission does not include theme park admission to Epcot but theme park admission is required to attend the event. Package limited to availability. No discounts will be offered in conjunction with this package.
So “just keep swimming” towards the Pixar Party date and in no time, you will be saying … “mine, mine, mine.”
We have tickets to the little chefs breakfast but my mother in law is coming to watch the kids but will not be in town until around 11. Would our kids be allowed in the breakfast with us?
Last year we had size restrictions on how many pins we could bring in. Do we have the same restrictions this year or have they been eased a bit. Last year’s size restriction made it difficult for some of us that flew in for the event.
So the welcome and goodbye pins are an extra cost on top of admission, or are they included?
Will any Party pins left over after the event be put up for general sale?
Possibly, but I wouldn’t take the chance. The event is close to selling out now and I think the pins are going to be quite popular.
I assume that ticket sales actually begin at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, rather than Eastern Standard Time as stated in the article.
You’re correct David. It was just a little oops on our part. I guess you could say we got ahead of ourselves.
