Limited Edition Merchandise Releases Cancelled for Foreseeable Future, Disney Pin Trading Will Continue at Walt Disney World

Walt Disney World has announced a number of new merchandise policies ahead of their reopening in a few weeks time:

Merchandise Locations

In merchandise locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort, Guests will continue to discover favorite Disney items, with some modifications to the shopping experience that will help us manage capacity and foster physical distancing.

New Product Launches: New collection product launches and limited-edition merchandise will not be available for in-person purchases at Walt Disney World Resort until further notice. As always, Guests can find these items on shopDisney, subject to availability.

Pin Trading: We will continue to offer Guests the opportunity to pin trade with Cast Members through the use of pin boards in select locations. Cast pin trading with lanyards will not be available at this time to maintain physical distancing.

Delivery Option: Package delivery to the front of our theme parks or to Disney Resort hotels will be suspended. However, shipping merchandise to Guests’ homes continues to be available.

Dressing Rooms: For the time being, dressing rooms will not be available.

Returns: In-person returns will be available upon the reopening of our merchandise locations.

Surely things will be different in all aspects of the Walt Disney World experience when parks reopen starting July 11th, 2020. What do you think of these modifications to the shopping experience?
