    It's the first official post on the "What's HapPINing - in Disney Pins?" weblog. We've been thinking about adding this page to DisneyPins.com for awhile. We hope it offers a unique glimpse into the "behind-the-scenes" world of Disney Pins. Did you know that Disney's Pin Celebration 2007 is less than a month away? Wow! There are so many exciting things planned for this three-day event at Epcot® - dreams will "hapPIN!" We recently posted images of the silent and live auction lots. There will be 15 silent lots and 20 live auction lots. The silent auction will conclude on Saturday, September 8 at 3:30 p.m. with the live auction taking place starting at 4:30 p.m. in World ShowPlace. We recently uncovered a box of some unique items in the Disney Pin Vault which are included in this year's auctions. The live auction is one thing not to miss at Disney's Pin Celebration 2007.

    I would urge you to check the blog weekly for updates. So far here are some goodies that have been posted - for instance ... the ultimate Tinkerbell pin!

    August 15, 2007

    Dreams are certainly a theme of the upcoming September event. We are excited to share a new dreamy item that will be a part of the fourth Random Selection Process at Disney's Pin Celebration 2007.


    This stellar pin will have an edition size of three (3) and will retail for $995.00 (plus tax). The pin will measure approximately 3" tall and will contain a locking pin back. Why? The pin will be 14k gold with an enamel fill. It will also contain aquamarine and peridot stones as well as one diamond! Yes, a real diamond! The image above is concept artwork. As soon as we have a final image of the pin, we will add the information to the Disney's Pin Celebration 2007 event page.

    Speaking of mysteries, here is a sneak peek at an upcoming limited edition, mystery tin.



    This tin features Disney Characters riding magical carousel horses and will be released in early 2008 at the Walt Disney World® Resort. The unique thing about this mystery tin is that the pins will all have the same edition size - 1600. The overall tins will have an edition size of 4000. Well, it's time for us to gallop off to a fun weekend. Happy Trading!

    We are beyond thrilled to finally announce that the upcoming Disney's Pin Cruise 2007 - Pirates of Castaway Cay will be having a special celebrity guest in attendance - Lee Arenberg. You may recall Lee from Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean motion pictures where he played the pirate "Pintel." Lee recently attended the Adventures of the Seven Seas Lagoon merchandise event in May 2007 at the Walt Disney World® Resort. He had such a wonderful time that we asked him to sail with our own band of pirates on the Disney Wonder® Ship in November 2007. If you haven't registered for this Pin Cruise, now is the time! You can discover more information HERE. The image below will take you to a page about Lee's acting career. Arrrggh, Disney Pin Traders! Have a great weekend!

    Happy Second Anniversary to Hong Kong Disneyland! We recently received several questions regarding the new Hidden Mickey pin designs for the Walt Disney World® Resort. We debuted 12 new designs at Disney's Pin Celebration 2007. We're excited that so many Guests are looking forward to collecting these pins. We plan to post a one-sheet checklist and additional "first month of release" information within the week. The new Hidden Mickey pin designs will start being distributed in October 2007 to Cast Members. Don't stress as these pins will be used for trading throughout this next fiscal year (which runs from October 2007 to October 2008). Remember, Hidden Mickey pins are only one style of pin to collect or trade. We offer an amazing variety of pins so Guests can showcase what matters most to them.

    It's the final day for Disney's Pin Celebration 2007. Saturday was an incredible day with new announcements, exciting auctions (the live auction was quite a site to see) and many pin dreams coming true!
    We announced two new events coming to the Walt Disney World® Resort in 2008 - Expedition: PINS and Disney's Pin Celebration 2008 - PTU: School of Trading
    There were additional announcements during the "In The Pin Studio" seminar yesterday. Timm from Disneyland® Resort announced Disney's Summer Pin Festival 2008 - Mickey's Pin Odyssey. Florette from Disneyland® Resort Paris announced they will be holding a special pin release around the opening of the new Twilight ZoneTM Tower of Terror attraction. Zoe from Hong Kong Disneyland revealed a beautiful framed pin set created to celebrate the second anniversary of the park on September 12, 2007.
    With so many new events and pins already in the works, Disney Pin Trading will be great in 2008!
    We would also like to extend a thank you to the many Guests who attended Disney's Pin Celebration 2007. Your enthusiasm and passion for Disney pins really shined at this event. It is because of you that we continue this Disney tradition. You made the experience fun for us and we hope dreams "hapPined" for you. We look forward to seeing you at future events.

    Wow! What an exciting first day at Disney's Pin Celebration 2007. We are thrilled that Guests are having a great time trading pins and sharing magic! It was great to see many familiar faces and to meet new friends. Speaking of familiar faces, Scoop Sanderson, Main Street U.S.A.® Reporter on special assignment for the Main Street Gazette, stopped by Disney's Pin Celebration. In the picture below, he sends his greetings along with another familiar face, Mickey Mouse.

    Don't forget that public day will be held on Sunday, Sept. 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Guests visiting Epcot® on that day are invited to attend.

    A machine has invaded MouseGear at Epcot®! Finally, the full story on Mickey's Mystery Pin Machines. We have been working on this project for over a year. There were many departments at Disney involved with creating these first five machines from Global Retail Design to Walt Disney Imagineering to Revenue and Currency Control. We've all played the machine and it is fun. The nice part is that whether you get the ball up the mountain or not, you still receive a randomly selected pin. If you do get the ball to the top, you get bragging rights to your fellow Disney pin collectors.
    Don't forget that early registration for Disney's Pin Celebration 2007 begins today at 12:00 noon at Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resort - Convention Center. A special trading room will be open from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m. for registered event Guests. From 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., non-event Guests will be invited to enter the room at the Convention Center.
    Finally, we received the silent auction framed set celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Epcot®! CLICK HERE to see the set. It's an incredible to see in person, especially with the number of Epcot® Themed pins included in the set.
