Recently, we previewed the October pins of the month for Walt Disney World and and Disneyland. Now it appears that most of the pins that seemed to be exclusive to Disneyland are also coming to Walt Disney World!

Walt Disney World 2019 October Pins

While most of the offerings are identical, there are a few differences. Since Walt Disney World doesn’t participate in the annual Haunted Mansion Holiday overlay, The Haunted Mansion Holiday 10 piece Mystery set is being replaced by a Mickey’s Christmas Carol 12 piece Mystery Puzzle set. Also, the Defend The Galaxy: Tie Fighter Jumbo Pin is replaced by the At-At Jumbo Pin. Noticeably missing from the Walt Disney World set is the “Fine and Dandy Fall 2019” pin, featuring Mickey and Pluto.

30th Anniversary The Little Mermaid Pin Trading Night

On Thursday Nov. 7th, Disney’s Coronado Springs resort will be hosting a Pin Trading Night featuring pins commemorating the 30th Anniversary of The Little Mermaid.

This lithograph sized pin is priced at $125 with only 500 units available. Don’t worry if that sounds too steep for your budget, most of the pins are priced at $17.99 (including the Annual Passholder Exclusive Ariel With Prince Eric Statue Pin). There will also be two pins exclusive to this event, one featuring Beauty and The Beast and the other featuring The Great Mouse Detective.
