The annual Disney Trading event returns to Epcot from the 7th to the 9th September, called “Mickey’s Circus.” The event will feature three days of trading, for both pins and Vinylmation.
Jeanne Lewis, product developer for pins said “We wanted to give a nod to the new development taking place in Fantasyland. Knowing that Storybook Circus was opening there, we thought we could re-create a “circus” in World ShowPlace at Epcot. With the bright colors and many circus acts, there seemed to be lots of great content for merchandise.”
There are approximately 26 pin items designed specifically for this event, including boxed sets, individual pins and even some Passholder-exclusive items.
For Vinylmation, we are releasing some 9-inch and 3-inch figures designed by Disney Design Group artists Ron Cohee, Caley Hicks, Eric Caszatt and Monty Maldovan. I love Ron’s design for Ringmaster Mickey, which has a removable top hat.
This year, the event will feature two days dedicated to pin trading. On Sunday, the entire day will be dedicated to Vinylmation.
