New ways to trade collectible pins have been added to locations around the resort, plus a new live virtual event is coming in December.

Beginning tomorrow, October 15, 2021, Walt Disney World is introducing a new way to trade pins at the theme parks and Disney Springs.

Pin trading mystery boxes and new Mickey-themed boards will be arriving to all pin trading locations to commemorate the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary celebration.


The mystery boxes allow you to 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.

And the Mickey-shaped board will allow you to select from any of the pins on display.

You can only trade up to two pins per location, and you can find these designated trading locations in guide maps for all four theme parks, Disney Springs and select resort locations.


Disney will be hosting a special online event for the serious pin collection, called Disney Heroes vs. Villains Digital Pin Experience.

Occurring on December 4, 2021, this will allow you to discover exclusive pins created just for this event, featuring our favorite heroes and villains from Disney, PIXAR, Star Wars, and Marvel.
