    Since Disney appears to be making this into a monthly series, I though it would be good to have a thread here to keep track of them, info on upcoming releases, ISO/trades, etc.

    You are amazing! I was super sad to have missed Donald and was searching on what was next and could find anything. Huge thank you for all the research and sharing with the group.

    General key question, for the Donald key, As an example they gave it to first folks to purchase at store, for the keys related to opening a store...how does that work? I ask this as a grown adult collector with no kids. From what I’ve seen, kids usually open the store, even if not first in line, they always open the store, as they should. I’d love one of those keys but not trying to be like...about it...lol...

    Most of the time they pick kids, but occasionally they will pick an adult. I got my key by going to a store in a quieter mall on a weekday when school was in session (I took the day off for my birthday) and was pretty much the only one around, so they let me do the ceremony and gave me the key.

    I love collecting these keys. Miss the D23 so far and all the rare ones from earlier. They are not easy to find :(

    I love collecting these keys! I have mickey, donald, Aladdin and toy story. Just bought a d23 one from ebay (in UK so not able to attend expo just now, hopefully in the future).

    I would love an opening ceremony key - hoping that when I book my next disney trip I'll be able to take my 2 children to open the store (Glasgow, scotland) and announce the trip on their big screen.

    Also, are those cards with pictures of the keys? Where are they from?

    Yep, they sure aren't! And when they are they're for more money than I'm willing to pay for them (would rather spend that on pins). So I'm focusing my collection on just the recent widely available ones.

    I believe they are cards. They show all the special keys released this past year (Toy Story 4, general store opening, Donald Duck, Aladdin, D23, and Mickey Mouse).

    There wasn't an official announcement, hence why I don't have a lot of information about the actual release outside of the fact that it was released at D23. An attendee posted about it in one of the many Disney groups I follow (don't remember which group).

    Hi Stitch, I have a extra D23 key, but I’m looking for a Aladdin or a Mickey key to trade it with. Any takers on here
