LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. —A new Disney pin trading scavenger hunt is now happening at Magic Kingdom Park, according to Disney Parks Blog.

Disney PinQuest features ‘Steampunk-inspired’ artwork. Disney Parks Blog spoke with Jeanne Lewis, merchandiser for Disney pins, to learn why the new PinQuest was created.

“We’re excited to introduce a pin trading-themed scavenger hunt this summer,” Lewis told Disney Parks Blog. “For years, guests have told us how much they enjoyed pin pursuits once offered at Disney Parks. We applied their feedback and lessons we learned from other recent scavenger hunts to create this new activity. Ultimately, we wanted something that the whole family could enjoy during a summertime visit to Magic Kingdom Park.”
