ORDERING DISNEY STUDIO STORE HOLLYWOOD PINS ONLINE
Click here to watch a YouTube video on my experience online pin ordering from DSSH.
Ordering from the Disney Studio Store Hollywood (DSSH) is easier than you may think, as long as you are prepared to wait in the queue.
DSSH pins are among the most desirable and collectible Disney pins. Only available at the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain shop next to the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, there are both open edition (OE), and the more popular and collectible limited edition (LE) pins.
To order the pins directly from , you will need to attend an online event hosted by the store and join a virtual queue. These queues are long and there is a very real possibility the limited edition pins will be gone if you are well back in the queue. However, if you're interested in open edition pins as well, it's worth the wait
Once you get in the queue, if you have pre-registered, you will be asked to sign in, otherwise, you can skip the event sign-in page altogether.
For limited edition pins, you may only be able to purchase 1 per style and will see a button to check if you want it. For others with a limit (such as open edition pins), you will be able to select how many of each style you want using a dropdown.
Important to remember is there is no back button, so you will need to make sure you have the pins you want to purchase in your list before going to the next page.
On the last page, you will be prompted to enter you payment card information and submit your order. The cost of shipping internationally (at least to Canada) was $19.99 USD. On the check-out page, you will see the shipping costs for your pins as the first item on the list.
In total, you will have 15 minutes to make your purchase so there is a bit of a time limit to get everything entered in and submitted, but if you're ready to go when you get into the online shop, it's a straightorward process.
