Welcome to a busy day here at Disney Springs. Our first stop of the morning was at Disney Pin Traders, where we spotted the new Walt Disney World 2019 Hidden Mickey pins on display. These cannot be purchased, and can only be found by trading with cast members.

WDW Hidden Mickey pins for 2019

The ribbons are pretty unique and represent Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Elliot from Pete’s Dragon, Cheshire Cat, Flower, and Ursula. The 8 bit pixel pins are really fun, too. Figment has been getting a lot of love lately and has his own set of pins here. The princesses and sensational six round of the rest of the new Hidden Mickey collections. Hopefully we can find some of these while we’re trading in the parks!

There’s finally some activity visible when walking on the West Side of Disney Springs. As you approach, you’ll notice the brightly lit screens above the entrance of the NBA Experience. It looks nice with the screens finally lit up, and there are people going in and out of the new store. The store side of the NBA Experience is finally open, so it’s nice to see more activity down here. Be sure to check out our tour of the inside of the store, and all the exclusive merchandise!

The rest of the NBA Experience opens August 12th.

The screens are displaying the NBA Experience logo scrolling around the building. It won’t be much longer until the entire building is open. We’re told it’s going to be a lot of fun, so we’ll have to wait and see when it opens next month.

That’s about it for today. It’s time to get out of here before it rains. Thanks for following us around Disney Springs, and stay tuned for more updates!
