And for those looking for the perfect, but easy, gift for themselves or someone special, there’s nothing like the classic and collectible Disney pin! Disney has a line of special limited-release Christmas pins following a new theme and design pattern since their launch back in 2011.

For example, the 2022 designs follow a snow globe theme! How cute is that? The set of four pins includes characters like Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear and the Pizza Planet aliens, Stitch and Angel, and Jack Skellington and Sally for the Haunted Mansion Holiday lovers, all decked out in holly jolly attire. What’s more, the best part is… they’re free!

That is, free with an eligible purchase of a qualifying Disney Gift Card while within the Parks! You can find these cards at Disney retail locations across the Walt Disney World Resort, and collect all four designs with the purchase of four gift cards. Plus, the cards have their own unique art matching their respective pins and have become a bit of a collector’s item themselves.

In fact, avid Disney pin collector @pincesshannon on Instagram shared this reel with more information about the holiday pins:

Each pin comes with the purchase and activation of one Disney Gift Card at $100 valuation. You can buy one and gift both the pin and the card to your favorite Disney fan, or split them up to keep the pin (or the card) for your own collection!

What’s more, as Shannon notes in the caption of her reel, while it may appear a hefty price tag for a Disney pin, you can put the money spent right back into your Disney vacation budget. The cards are applicable at most admission, food, and retail locations in the Parks, as well as select Disney Store locations or online via

Additionally, if they aren’t spent at the Disneyland or Walt Disney World Resort, Guests can use a Disney Gift Card at Disney Springs, Downtown Disney, Disney’s Beach Resorts, Aulani, or even on the Disney Cruise Line! On top of that, you can also apply their value towards Adventures by Disney or Disney on Broadway purchases.

Will you be taking advantage of this Disney holiday offer and scoring yourself some free pins? For more information, please visit the Disney Gift Card website.
