Yes, it is/was a parks exclusive if the park got it in. My friends are at DLR today and he asked for me and the CM told him only WDW got their shipment and DLR did not. They sent me pics of the shopping list DLR has and there's a lot missing today.
DLR is supposed to have an event for legacy passholders before releasing the 4th merch to the public.

That's interesting because they are Legacy Passholders and are at the reservations for the shopping event. Not sure if the CM was telling the truth or not.

I think people were looking for the jumbo pin which I’m not seeing here unless I’m missing it.
Ah, I guess they are different, they looked like the same motif to me so I didn't notice the differences. Maybe they did indeed not get one of the pins then. Just surprised Laughing Place didn't report on them not getting an item.

The Twitter account for the DLR Legacy Passholders account just sent a tweet that the pin featured on the reservation sign up page, Disney Parks Blog, and shopdisney virtual waiting room is not available at DLR. Boooo.

Grrrr my Jasmine Castle pin came horribly crooked with a bad hinge. If anyone has an extra in good condition, please keep me in mind :)

So annoyed, I ordered at midnight of its release and it looks like I got the scraps!
Just received my Jasmine castle pin. This castle is huge. Mine is not square either, but I have definitely received much worse ones from Frozen, Tangled and Sleeping Beauty. Before receiving the super bad ones, I would have sent Jasmine back, but now I just look at it and think, wow looks good. (Its all relative... hahaha)

Lol thank you for the chuckle. Disney not trying to raise our standards but instead making us count our blessings!

Wanted to update on this! I purchased two additional castles (found them for a decentish price on eBay). In both listings the pictures showed them perfectly squared/even. When I received them the top portion was a bit off. I was able to adjust them but it definitely seems like a design issue with the pin being so big! I had pins slightly off centered from the other castles but across the board this Jasmine release has the worst hinges so far.

Anyone else notice theirs has a loose hinge?

I ordered 2 and both came barely off; easily fixed. Mine arrived in a box.

MIL ordered 2 and one was a bit off; now fixed - the other was completely broken at the hinge.
Hers arrived in a bubble mailer. Disney is refunding her for the one.

Do I understand that the main motivation for giants like Disney, Target, etc. to put out rainbow merch is to cash in on Pride? Yes.
Do I still attend Gay Days at Disney and spend money on rainbow food and merchandise and the like? Yes.

I look at it several ways:

- The more they do it, the more it normalizes it. Regardless of the reason behind it, it still puts Pride into the world in a positive (or at very least neutral) connotation.
- Giant corporations are motivated by what would make them the most money. If they did not think a majority would support it, they would not do it. The fact that they are putting out stuff means society as a whole has shifted enough where they feel like the investment is worth it.

Yup no different than the cultural appropriation for stories and content. I see you Disney with CoCo and pandering to the Hispanic community with the cute Concha ears and so much Hispanic merch and food...so long as it’s done in taste, I’m all for it...shares positive reflections of cultures and ways of life different than their own to individuals who may not be exposed to it in positive ways in their part of the world...

I’ll tell you what though, I’m waiting for Gay Days to have their parades where the princesses are in drag...that would be AMAZING! But their rainbow merch is on point and and their updating their CM policies are a step in the right direction for LGBTQ+ love it!
