This last one has something for every Guest, from casual souvenirs for friends and family to more collectible items for Disney fans. Perhaps the most known collectible items at the Parks are Disney pins and the pin trading tradition with them.

Introduced in 1999 with the launch of the Millennium Celebration, Pin Trading is a beloved activity Guests can try when they visit Disney Parks around the world.

Recently, a Cast Member revealed a thrilling detail about Disney pins, especially for Marvel fans. The Twitter account Overheard at Disney (@OverhrdDisney) posted a conversation between a Guest and a Cast Member, who mentioned Guests don’t need to remove their pin lanyards before going through metal detectors because Disney pins are made from vibranium, therefore don’t set off the detectors.

Guest 1: “Do I have to take off my pin lanyard before going through the metal detector?”
CM: “No. Disney pins are made out of Vibranium. They do not set off the detectors.”

Overheard by Anonymous, Disneyland Security.

This detail was probably shared with a younger Guest, who was surely blown away after being let in on this secret. This proves how Cast Members continue finding ways to create Disney magic for every Guest on their visit to the happiest place on earth.

At Disney California Adventure, Guests can show off their vibranium pins as they meet their favorite superheroes at Avengers Campus, where Spider-Man, Loki, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Doctor Strange, and so many more characters are always ready to spring into action. And of course, you have to ride WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and Guardians of the Galaxy: MISSION BREAKOUT. Guests can also enjoy Buena Vista Street as they walk the roads Walt had in Hollywood, enjoy a hand-dipped corn dog at Award Wieners, and Head to Cars Land to enjoy the neon signage and Radiator Springs Racers, rock on the Silly Symphony Swings as well, and catch Jack-Jack on Incredicoaster! The list of rides and attractions never ends!

Plus, at Disneyland, there is so much for Guests to enjoy! Now that the Main Street Electrical Parade and other nighttime spectaculars have made their way back into the Parks, Guests have so much more to look forward to on their next visit. Walking up to Sleeping Beauty Castle is always a dream, especially when you get to go inside and relive the story of Aurora and Maleficent. Riding classics like “it’s a small world,” Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, The Haunted Mansion, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain, and more will have you feeling the magic and craving a churro! Toontown is currently gearing up for a massive change which will be revealed in 2023 with the reopening of the land and the debut of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway. Plus, now at Disneyland, Guests can enjoy Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge for some blue milk or green milk and ride Rise of the Resistance and Smuggler’s Run.
