New “Pin Thursday” Weekly Pin Trading Event Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

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

If you’re heading to Disney’s Animal Kingdom next Thursday, November 7th or any other upcoming Thursday, there’s a whole new activity coming to the park, albeit rooted in the decades-old tradition of Disney Pin Trading.

As many Disney Pin Trading aficionados know, weekly pin releases take place every Thursday of the month throughout Walt Disney World (and at Disneyland, too), so part of the event will also be exploring all of the latest new pins to hit the shelves. Every Thursday, limited edition or limited release pins will also be available at select merchandise locations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom like the Discovery Trading Company and the Africa hub cart.

Starting November 7th, Cast Members will also be outfitted with exclusive new pins to trade with Guests, to be refreshed park-wide each week.

This is the first Disney Pin Trading event to be announced for Walt Disney World since the return of daily pin trading to the Magic Kingdom this past January.

Today the manager at AK said he had no idea what this article is referring to. So, maybe you need to publish your source. Sent people on a wild goose chase.

It was posted to cast members with no date and our post said no date. They were clueless as well until they got the answer that it starts 11/7. We are not responsible for their inability to communicate as a company.
