New Limited Edition Pins No Longer Being Sold at Downtown Disney, Guests Must Enter Parks to Purchase New Releases at Disneyland Resort

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Guests looking to buy new limited edition pins at the Disneyland Resort will need to enter Disneyland or Disney California Adventure park to do so effective immediately.

For many years, guests without park tickets have been able to get new release limited edition pins at the Disney’s Pin Traders shop in Downtown Disney Anaheim. As of today, that is no longer the case.

Cast members at the kiosk have been informed that they will no longer be getting the new limited edition releases. This will force guests who want a shot at buying the pins before they sell-out to obtain park admission if they don’t already have it.

It is certainly possible that if pins don’t sell out quickly that they will be moved to Disney’s Pin Traders as well, but that remains unclear to cast at this time. The only surefire way to get that limited edition or limited release pin you are after is to head into one of the two parks after it goes on sale.

Disney’s Pin Traders does still have some older limited edition pins for sale at this time, but those were already at the location before this new policy went into effect.

It will have no effect on resellers. They already have passes. They already go to the parks all the time. Maybe it will allow them to charge more on e bay because the pins will be harder for non APs or lower APs to get. Maybe less LE will sell out–which has been happening anyway. I can think of NO reason why Disney is doing this that makes any sense, except maybe they want to slow pin selling down or end it. Sending more people into the parks is crazy. The summer has been slow, but it will pick up… Read more »

Just look for them on eBay. They will be showing up like any other limited edition ITEM.
No need to pay for park ticket.
