We are getting lots of questions on the Windows of Evil pin collection from Disneyland. I figured I’d list the RUMORS here and let everyone chime in. Unfortunately we don’t have an exact answer on this series yet.
1. It’s becoming a surprise release moving forward
2. Disney is taking June off and will return in July
3. The series is done
Please let everyone know if you have any additional information! Thanks!June 14, 2018 at 4:49 PM #30768
According to the CM I spoke to today, they will not be releasing the pins until August. Idk if they will release 3 that month to get caught up or 2 a month for 2 months? Also, they will be putting a restriction in place so Disney can monitor how many pins each person buys. The CMs are going to have to make sure guests stick to the 2 per person rule; no more store hopping to buy miltiple sets.June 15, 2018 at 7:32 PM #30799
I also heard that the next pins wouldn’t be released until August, but I wasn’t told an explanation and it was stated as “We think”, so I don’t believe Cm’s are privy to what’s going on unless they’re in retail management. One rumor was that they were changing manufacturers of the pins (to crack down on scrappers and PPs).
Disneyland is actively looking into a system that is similar to what is done at DSSH. Initial rumors include flagging passes that have discounted the UPC code twice already, but I believe if Disney did something like this that they would try something more like stamping passholders hands or tickets with an ink that couldn’t be washed off for a couple days, or something similar to the voucher system in place for DSSH. Customers would also be required to show proof of admission (only paying customers, no babies) and possibly even their own forms of payment. This is meant to crack down on people taking their whole family to buy pins at multiple stores. It’s already a proposition where, hey, they’re paying ticket holders – every paying customer should have the right to buy, but the limit of 2 per person needs to be strictly enforced for these releases. There’s simply too much demand and the main thread I heard from all CM’s is that the last two releases have been mob scenes, and that this needs to be corrected before they’ll release the rest.June 22, 2018 at 11:40 AM #31079
At the pin release yesterday in Disneyland a CM told the people in line at Westward Ho something similar to these rumors. From what I did hear yes they will not be released in June or July. They will come back in August and he made it seem like multiple releases. I think i also heard something about getting more pins in stock in smaller numbers and them being distributed around the stores in Disneyland. Not entirely sure i heard everything there. I got the impression he meant previous pins but he probably meant the new pins coming out to make up for the missing months. Not sure about the surprise release or the series being done, though he was explaining a good deal so i may have missed part of it. I also may have misheard some parts but I hope this helps some.
