Mickey’s Mystery Pin Machine makes its debut on Thursday, Sept. 6 at MouseGear located at Epcot®. More than a year in the making, this new pin machine will feature three, open edition pin collections – Puzzle, Pirate and Disney-Pixar. Each mini-collection will contain five pins each. Play is $5.00 per game which includes tax. Guests are encouraged to relax when playing the game as every player receives one randomly selected pin from the specially designed collections. There will be three tries per game with a maximum of one pin distributed per game. “Mickey’s Mystery Pin Machine is something we have never done before,” said Steven Miller, Project Manager for Disney Pin Trading. “We’ve learned that Guests enjoy having fun with pins and enjoy the thrill of a good mystery. This machine combines the best of both worlds ultimately giving Guests an excellent, valued priced Disney pin to collect or trade.” Additional machines will be introduced at the following locations in the coming weeks: Disney’s Pin Traders at Downtown Disney® Marketplace; Tomorrowland® Arcade in Magic Kingdom® Park; Sorcerer’s Hat Shop at the Disney-MGM Studios and Everything Pop! at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. Pins from Mickey’s Mystery Pin Machine may not be exchanged or returned. Mickey’s Mystery Pin Machine will require exact cash as no change will be given. Visa® and other credit cards will be accepted including the Disney Key To The World card.“I’m excited about this new and innovative concept for Disney Pin Trading,” said Julie Young, product developer for Mickey’s Mystery Pin Machines. “We partnered with many departments in The Walt Disney Company to introduce this new technology to the Disney Theme Park Merchandise division.” When asked about future mystery pins, Julie responded, “We always have a few surprises up our sleeves. You never know what may happen in the place where dreams come true.”
