This past Friday, Disney’s Hollywood Studios celebrated their 20th anniversary. Although it was not a huge blowout celebration there were some great events and some celebratory merchandise. Disney pin collecting is a huge draw, so naturally there were quite a few pins for sale.

While I was there I saw 5 limited edition pins and a few special items. One of the castmembers said there was going to be more pins released later in the day, but I did not see them. There was also a signing event with Disney artist Jason Zucker signing his pins for anyone who purchased one during the day.
The edition sizes range from 1000 to 1500 in number, while there was also a first relase for the Disney’s Hollywood Studios 20th Anniversary pin.
Wrapping it up
Disney excels at the design of their merchandise and their pins are no exception. Over the years I have collected hundreds of these little guys with my most treasured ones being from events that I have been part of producing. These new pins are quite a nice addition to any collection.
