The folks over at Disney Style have shared some of the newest Disney pins that are set to hit Disney Parks in September and I’m completely obsessed with ALL OF THEM!
When I first started visiting Disney, I collected some pins and traded some, but I had rules about buying them. I don’t really care for the pins with too many bells and whistles; like hinges, moving parts, and that kind of thing. I like simple; just a little touch of Disney here and there like a simple Mickey Mouse Ear Hat or a Disney coffee mug or even a Mickey Ice Cream Bar.
Now that I’ve given you a little background on my taste in pins, you’ll totally understand why I’m over-the-moon obsessed with these brand new ones – they consist of icons from beloved Disney movies and they’re SO CUTE! Check out the video below for a complete preview of the whole collection:

If you haven’t ever participated in Disney pin trading, here are a few tips:
- The main criteria to judge whether a pin is tradable or not is that it must be a metal pin bearing a “©Disney” mark on the back that represents a Disney Event, Place or Location, Character or Icon.
- Pins should be in good, undamaged, tradable condition.
- For a safe trading experience, please trade one pin at a time, hand to hand with pin backs attached.
- Guests may trade a maximum of two (2) pins per Cast Member, per day.
- Refrain from touching a Cast Member’s or guest’s pins or lanyard. If you need a closer look, kindly ask the Cast Member or guest wearing the lanyard if she or he can bring it into clearer view for you.
- Monies, gifts or receipts may not be exchanged or used in trade for a pin.
- When trading with a Cast Member, guests should offer a pin that is not currently displayed on the Cast Member’s lanyard.
- Pins from other business units of The Walt Disney Company (i.e.ABC, ESPN) are accepted for trade.
- Operating participant pins that show a Disney, Disneyland Resort, or Walt Disney World Resort affiliation are accepted for trading.
- Plastic pins, rubber pins or other non-metal pins are not accepted for trading.
- “Personalized Name” pins are not accepted for trade.
- “Broche style” or “clasp pins” are not accepted for trade.
- Disney Service Award pins, Spirit of Disneyland Resort pins, Partners in Excellence pins or Cast Member costume pins (i.e. Host/Hostess Badges, Disney Trainer) are not tradable.
Disney Pin Trading is magical fun for the whole family! The most important etiquette to remember is to have fun collecting and/or trading!
