New Pins Coming for Disney's Animal Kingdom's 15th Anniversary

Over the last few days, Disney has announced some of the new pins that will be available at the park to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of Disney's Animal Kingdom.  So I thought you might enjoy a look at all of the ones we know about so far.  Each of these will be released on April 22.

The first one is a spinner pin featuring Mickey and Minnie in full safari garb.  It is a limited edition of 2000 pieces...

The next is a gorgeous hinged pin that features the park's icon, the Tree of Life, and is also a limited edition of 2000...
In true Disney fashion, we also have a set of "mystery pins".  (The entire concept of which bugs me to no end...)  Disney calls this a "limited release", as opposed to a "limited edition", which means its a timed release rather than a specified amount of pins.  My personal favorite is the Carnotaurus chasing Mickey
Next is a great little pin for the Safari Mickey fans out there, of which I am one.  It is also the only open edition available...

This is all I have been able to find so far, but I would not imagine there will be more to come.  Most likely it is too late to announce anything else.  Let's just hope some other merchandise besides just pins will be available.  Disney has indicated there will be more souvenirs for the Earth Day/Anniversary celebration.

My only reaction is that thankfully they have NOT included any images of dragons on these, which will help to keep Safari Mike's blood pressure at reasonable levels


  1. I love the one that opens! I'm an avid pin collector, but I'm definitely lacking in DAK representation in my collection...

  2. Oh, my family could use a few of these for our collections! Thanks for featuring them.
