One Family Pin Event
On August 12th, the 2022 One Family Pin Event started at EPCOT in Florida. At this event, Mickey’s of Glendale had an exhibition booth showcasing the upcoming pins that would be releasing a few months later at D23 Expo 2022, among them being the Maleficent pin.
D23 Day One
The Disney Dragons Profiles set of pins was put up for sale at a special Mickey’s of Glendale pin store within the event. There was a virtual queue system put in place via mobile app, in which attendees would need to scan a QR code to join the “line” at the store’s entrance.
The entire set of pins were the first to sell out on day one, being completely gone within an hour and a half of the event starting.

In the months following D23, this fan-favorite pin was selling at a massive premium, becoming something of a grail piece within the pin collecting community.
