New Hidden Mickey Pins Arriving at Disneyland in Late July 2013 - These new pins follow the first part of the 2013 collection that was released in February. These new pins are distributed to cast members to use for trading with guests of all ages. Each pin measures approximately 1.25-inches and contain a small Mickey Mouse icon. This not-so-hidden icon is an easy way to identify Hidden Mickey pins on cast members lanyards.
