Pin Trading March 2012 releases

Thursday, 1st March 2012 at 12:30

It’s 20s across the board for this month’s Pin Trading releases. The new pins include no less than five special Open Edition pins for the 20th Anniversary, three of which feature Mickey, Minnie and Chip ‘n’ Dale in their sorcerer-themed birthday costumes for Disney Magic on Parade! and Disney’s 20th Anniversary Celebration Train. A fourth pin featuring Tinker Bell completes the set which, priced at €8.99 each, will likely feature the characters in a pin-on-pin effect. At a more affordable €6.99, you could just pick up the Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary logo pin, which is already in the hands of a few lucky collectors having been given away to shareholders at the Annual General Meeting last month.

Especially nice is the “postage stamp” set of six pins and a lanyard to celebrate the anniversary, while the “20” is even carried over to this year’s traditional season pins, beginning here with the €12.99 Cheshire Cat pin for spring 2012. Tinker Bell, that ubiquitous pin favourite, completes the releases with a €14.99 pin which opens up to reveal her sitting on a pot of gold — for St. Patrick’s Day, of course!

The next Pin Trading Night will be held in La Cantina at Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe from 6.00pm on Friday, 30th March. These are free events, usually with special Limited Pins on sale, where you can meet and trade with fellow collectors. Reservations are now also open for a Walt Disney Studios Pin Event on Saturday, 28th April. Limited to 300 people, the €35 entry fee includes buffet dinner within Restaurant En Coulisse. You’ll need to call 33 1 60 30 60 53 to book.

  • It’s been a long time since DLRP released so many nice pins at once.

    Wow! These look awesome! Definite improvement on last months releases! :P x

    when I come there in may will all of these pins are sold out??

  • These are some really lovely pins!

  • I’m going in May too. I very highly doubt they’ll be completely sold out. And I intend to buy every single one :)

    one more thing, I wanted to put this somewhere; I just put my video of the little mermaid (the very one given to me when I was little) on for my son, and at the start it went ‘stay tuned after for a sneak peak at the new euro disney resort near paris’. Believe me when I say I couldn’t help but giggle

  • Excuse my lack of knowledge but as these are March releases, does that mean that only a cartain amount will be on sale and once they’ve sold out, that’s it?

    Or will they be available for as long as the 20th anniversary lasts?

    Wow – they’re fantastic! Do you know if they can be bought online anywhere?

  • Is the Deluxe Starter Open Edition or Limited? I’ll be there in late April, so I want to know if I can pick it up in the parks then or have to do mailorder..

  • As they’re 20th anniversary editions, and the celebration is year long, they’ll be available all year.

  • I called someone to find out :)

  • Actually, looking at them, I’ve got a bit of a nag, why is there no Donald or Daisy? Even on the lanyard, no Donald or Daisy :(

  • Thanks for calling, Rae! :-)

  • Oh and about Donald and Daisy…I think they’ll release more of these parade pins as above, so there might be Donald in the mix! Just guessing, though.
