The next wave of Hidden Mickey pins for 2015 will soon be arriving at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. You might recall reading about the first part of this collection released earlier this year. Here’s a closer look at what you may find when trading pins with Disney cast members in the coming months.
For Disneyland Resort, guests will find two collections celebrating the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. These diamond shaped pins feature classic attractions and Disney characters.
One of the most unique collections contains the daughters of King Triton from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid.” They are characters rarely included on merchandise at Disney Parks.
At Walt Disney World Resort, the Mickey Mouse-inspired macaroon pins are fantastic! I was also happy to see Figment and Elliot included in the Disney Dragon collection. The best pins, however, feature the Genie from Disney’s “Aladdin.”
If you are looking for Hidden Mickey pins, remember they typically measure approximately 1.25-inches and contain small Mickey Mouse icons in the artwork. The back stamps contain the words “Hidden Mickey pin,” and the pins are usually silver in color.
Finally, the Disney pin team is adjusting the release schedule for new Hidden Mickey pins in 2016. The first part of the collection will be released in spring and the second part will be released in fall. This is similar to how these pins were released in 2015.
Which pins will you add to your collection?
