Saturday, March 18th, 2017 marks a very important milestone in Disney Parks history: Pirates of the Caribbean at the Disneyland Resort turns 50 years old! In honor of this very special milestone, Disney will release some great new merchandise.
Guests will find several individual limited edition pins, each with an edition size of 2,500. The individual limited edition pins will also be offered in a boxed set containing one completer pin (500 edition size). In addition there are 2 commemorative ‘I Was There Shirts!’. For passholders there will be an exclusive shirt, and those who like collecting pins may also find a passholder limited edition pin (3,000 edition size). Passholders need to present a valid Annual Pass in order to purchase the exclusive shirt and pin.
The limited edition pins, Annual Passholder pin, and boxed pin set will be released on March 16th in the following Disneyland Park locations: Westward Ho located in Frontierland; 20th Century Music Co. on Main Street, U.S.A.; and Little Green Store Command in Tomorrowland.
