We’ve been walking all over Disney Springs today trying to hit as many of the newly reopened spots as possible!
So far, we’ve checked out Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories, Goofy’s Candy Company, as well as Dockside Margaritas (we even got a little thirsty on our journey and treated ourselves to a Watermelon Marg!)! But now we’re turning our attention to Pin Traders which has also just reopened in Disney Springs today!
Pin Traders is THE place for Disney pin collectors to see and be seen! We were interested to see that the shop had flung open its doors since closing last March!
Like most locations, you’ll find a new hand sanitizer station located near the entrance.
The multi-sided building Pin Traders is housed in normally has many ways in and out, but as of today, there’s only one entrance and exit. The rest are closed off to guests for the time being. A Cast Member also told us Pin Traders can activate a virtual queue system if needed for busier days as we’ve seen at the other Disney shops and World of Disney, but there was no wait to get in today!
And while the place with chock-full of its normal vast array of hats, Minnie ears, Pop vinyls, and of course, PINS, we were able to confirm that pin trading is NOT happening at Pin Traders at this time. Hmm… this makes the shop’s name a bit of a misnomer — for now!
This is interesting because according to Disney, “We will continue to offer Guests the opportunity to pin trade with Cast Members through the use of pin boards in select locations. Cast pin trading with lanyards will not be available at this time to maintain physical distancing.” So, we will make sure to keep checking back and we will inform you if and when Pin Traders starts trading again.
We’ll be back with our reporting of which other Disney Springs locations have reopened today, so stay tuned!
