If you always dreamed of having a pirate-themed pin set featuring Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear, you need to look no further! Unfortunately, this pin set is exclusive to D23 members, so if you are not a member you will not be able to purchase the set. Too bad Miss. Piggy isn’t there, too.

The pins are being sold to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Muppets Treasure Island and there will only be 1,500 released. Each pin is being sold separately at a cost of $12.99.

As the pins will be exclusive to D23 gold members only, those who are able to purchase can head to shopDisney at 7 a.m. PT on February 15, 2021.

A Muppetational Legacy with D23

With so many milestones to celebrate this year, from the 25th anniversary of Muppet Treasure Island and the 30th anniversary of Dinosaurs, to The Muppet Show arriving on Disney+, it takes a whole week of Muppet mayhem to express our excitement! Host Leigh Slaughter (Vice President, Muppets Studio) is joined by the legendary Bill Barretta (puppeteer, Pepe, Rowlf, Swedish Chef), Dave Goelz (puppeteer, Gonzo, Bunsen Honeydew, Waldorf), Kevin Bishop (actor, Jim Hawkins) and Brian Henson (puppeteer, director, producer, Chairman of The Jim Henson Company) for a fun, wide-ranging conversation that looks back at Disney Legend Jim Henson and the long and successful collaboration between The Muppets and Disney.

As a reminder, all of the seasons of The Muppet Show will be coming to Disney+ as of February 19, which will definitely continue the current festivities.

For now, pin trading at Disney World is a little more complicated due to COVID-19. Although many stores still have pins to trade, pin trading boards around Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and even Disney Springs are not as available as they once were. That being said, all pins are fully sanitized during the trading process.

Now, we just need a Muppet Christmas Carol set with Kermit as Santa!

Are you a pin collector or trader? Do you want this Muppet pin collection?
