A new Disney pin exclusively for Annual Passholders is available at Walt Disney World. The limited edition pin depicts Mickey and Goofy riding on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover in Tomorrowland.
Annual Passholder-Exclusive Limited Edition PeopleMover Pin – $19.99
Mickey and Goofy are in a PeopleMover car in the foreground of the enamel pin. The real-life cars are blue and gray, but the new pin uses white instead of gray. The doors are in the process of closing as Mickey and Goofy set off on their trip through Tomorrowland.
The green leaves of a tree and another section of the PeopleMover track are in the background, with a blue sky behind them. Another train of PeopleMover cars is visible on the distant track.
The pin has a limited edition size of 3,000. Though this is a Magic Kingdom-inspired pin, we found it available for purchase at EPCOT in Pin Traders.

Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover
The Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover opened at Magic Kingdom on July 1, 1975, as the WEDway PeopleMover. The original name was a reference to WED Enterprises, known today as Walt Disney Imagineering (“WED” stood for Walter Elias Disney). Designed as a mass transit system of the future, the PeopleMover ride carries guests around and through Tomorrowland. On the tour, guests get to see inside Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. It’s also the only spot to see part of Progress City, the model of the original EPCOT plan.
The ride takes approximately 10 minutes and does not have a minimum height requirement. It goes in a full loop, so you’re dropped off where you got on — in the center of Tomorrowland beneath the Astro Orbiter.
Last year, the PeopleMover received a couple of updates. The retro 1994 Tomorrowland signage was removed and replaced by signs advertising the Enterprise sponsorship. A new narration featuring the return of ORAC, “The Commuter Computer,” also debuted. For more details and a full video, click here.
Disneyland was formerly home to a PeopleMover as well, but its ride vehicles had a different design.
