Epcot's 30th Anniversary Mystery Pins

On October 1, 2012, Epcot celebrated its 30th Anniversary. Disney released lots of great merchandise, but the items that most interested my wife and me were these mystery pins. For one, they all feature our favorite purple dragon, Figment. Plus, they feature classic Epcot symbols AND some popular characters, such as Mickey Mouse, and the much missed Dreamfinder.

I bought this pack at the pin cart in the United Kingdom Pavilion. Retro coloring on the box, gives it an appropriate 80's vibe.

A look at the pins in the collection.

There are some I like more than others, but since they all feature Figment, I'm happy! 2 pins for $13.95 isn't bad!

The wonderful Cast Member at the booth, Chloe, couldn't have been friendlier, and was happy we'd found these, the last box at her station.

I opened the box, and each pin was wrapped in a black bag, adding to the suspense! What can it be?

Chloe even had a pair of scissors to help me open the bag.

First pin out of the bag was none other than the pin I wanted most! Figment and Dreamfinder!

And the next pin was my second choice, Mickey and Figment! Mickey is even in his silver jumper with a rainbow on it!

This was one of the most memorable experiences on my trip, thanks to Chloe. A great Cast Member experience can be the most magical moment on a vacation. Thanks Chloe!


  1. I love buying mystery packs!
    Getting 2 terrific pins, awesome.

  2. I think we belly bumped we were so happy!

  3. Hey guys!
    I can't believe this was nearly a year ago! Hope you are both well and still enjoying the Disney Parks, I'm back home now in the UK, my program ended in July and it isn't as magical back here in chilly old England. But I had a fantastic year working in Epcot's UK pavilion! I hope to return next year for a little vacation!
    All the best,
    Chloe (the cast member)

    1. Great to hear from you Chloe! There is an article scheduled for October 21st called "Being Remembered: Great Disney Cast Members" featuring you again, so please stop back!

    2. Yay! That sounds brilliant, thank you! Looking forward to it!!

  4. Chloe! I can't believe you're back home! EPCOT won't be the same without you, it was always a treat to get to see you there. Maybe we'll see you on your vacation. You never know!

    1. I will let you know when I pop over the pond next year! I'm thinking for food & wine maybe, yum yum!
