Since the start of the Disney pin trading in 1999, the release of new pins have often coincided with major openings at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
With the highly anticipated grand opening of the Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland on December 6 (previews on November 19th), including the Be Our Guest Restaurant and Gaston’s Tavern (hooray!!), Disney’s pin team has created new pins to collect!
A variety of pins will be available, including open and limited edition pins, boxed sets, multi-pin sets, and some pins designed especially for Annual Passholders. On opening day, several pins will be released to commemorate the special occasion, and we’re most excited for these ones…
Gaston’s Tavern Pin
Gaston charms with his big ol’ smile and the allure of a great new brew at Gaston’s Tavern!
The lovely Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth are on this grand opening pin for Be Our Guest Restaurant. And Lumiere is ready to welcome guests!
Mystery sets will also be offered for New Fantasyland. A limited release set will showcase pins inspired by “Beauty and the Beast” experiences.
Look for a limited release “reveal / conceal” set with 10 known pins featuring images from New Fantasyland. In addition, this set will surprise us with 10 mystery pins. In each box, there will be one pin that you can see, and the other will be a mystery.
Check out the Gaston’s Tavern and Be Our Guest Restaurant pins in the first set. I love the Mrs. Potts and Chip pin that seems to be a nod to the former “Mrs. Potts'” that is now Storybook Treats!
We can’t wait to see more merchandise for the New Fantasyland!
Do you pin collect? Which pins do you hope to add to your collection?
