    Artist Bios:
    Timm Lundeen (Disneyland® Resort)
    Originally from Deadwood, South Dakota, Timm began his career Thanksgiving Day 1986 in Food Operations. Since that time, he has held various roles with the Resort Hotels, Store Operations and Merchandise where he currently holds the title Project Manager, Disney Pin Trading.
    When asked about his Pinbassador Inspirations, Timm replied, "I wanted to create an interactive pin, where just by looking in a mirror, you could become a part of the magic in the place where dreams come true and who better to make that happen, than Tinker Bell."
    Regarding the second design, Timm continues, "The Haunted Mansion is one of our most beloved attractions and just like collecting pins, there's always room for one more."

    Steven Miller - (Walt Disney World® Resort)
    Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Steven started his Disney career in Summer 1997 on the Walt Disney World® College Program. Since that time, he has held various roles with the Casting Center, Merchandise Training and Development; Heritage and Traditions and Epcot® Operations. Steven served as a Walt Disney World® Ambassador in 2001/2002. He has been with the Disney Theme Park Merchandise team in Florida since November 2003.

    When asked about his Pinbassador Inspirations, Steven replied, "Knowing the theme of this year's Summer pin festival was dreams, I thought of two things I dream of - tikis and Mars. Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room is one of the first places I visit during a trip to the Disneyland® Resort. I collect tikis so enjoying a Dole® Whip while being surrounded by tikis, singing birds and crooning flowers would be a dream come true for me.
    Regarding the second design, Steven continued. "For years, I have dreamed of being the first human on Mars. For the second pin design, I liked the idea of the Disney characters using the Moonliner for a trip to the red planet. It reminded me of the original Tomorrowland® attraction, Rocket to the Moon, which was later replaced by Mission to Mars. Since I'm not any closer to becoming an astronaut, I'm glad I can now experience the Mission: Space® Attraction at Epcot® in Florida."

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    OMG< I just might have to do this one too.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I am so excited. I randomly pick a weekend to drive all the way to Disneyland and I finally am going to get a cool LE pin on the day it is released. I won't have to go to ebay and pay a ridiculous mark up for it.
    Check out my new Disney Blog here. What it lacks in quality it makes up with... Well, nothing I guess.

    I love that tiki pin, but alas I will probably never get it. Living on the other side of the country sucks sometimes. The markup on ebay will be ridiculous and I don't think I'll be willing to pay that much for a pin.
