In 2005, the Piece of Disney History Pin Collection will debut at the Walt Disney World® Resort. This pin collection will celebrate Disney Attractions and let Guests take a piece of Disney history home with them.
Working with the Engineering Services teams around the Walt Disney World® Resort, the Disney Pin Team was able to obtain actual pieces of Disney Attractions, some of which have been retired. In turn, the Pin Team partnered with the manufacturer to add pieces of those Disney Attractions to the pins.
"Attractions are an important part of a Disney vacation," said Julie Young, Product Developer for Disney Pin Trading. "With the Happiest Celebration on Earth just around the corner, I thought this would be a great way for our Guests to remember their favorite attractions."
A variety of Attractions will be featured in this collection from all four Theme Parks, including Maelstrom at Norway Pavilion in Epcot®, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at the Disney-MGM Studios, Swiss Family Treehouse at the Magic Kingdom® Park, and many more.
"I was really inspired by the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea porthole," continued Julie. "After seeing [the porthole], I wanted to find a way to get a piece of that classic attraction into the hands of many Guests. This pin collection was the result."
A new pin will be released each month throughout 2005 and each pin will have an edition size of 2500. Check back soon for a confirmed release date of the first pin (most likely, the latter part of January).
I can't wait for these to come out!!!!!
