    Wand Piece of History Pin

    Last year Disney released a pin series called Piece of History and built into the pin was a tiny piece of the attractions they paid tribute to.

    While most people have grown to hate the wand, would you want a pin of SpaceShip Earth with the wand with a tiny piece of the wand built into it?

    Even though I thought the wand took away from the grandeur of the simple globe, I think I would go for that pin.

    I'd buy one of these in a heartbeat. What other attractions have they done this for already?

    Re: Wand Piece of History Pin

    As much as I hate the wand I wouldn't mind a pin that had it on SSE as long as I had a SSE pin without it. (I don't collect pins so it doesn't much matter anyhow). I don't necessarily plan to scrub the memory of the wand out of my mind. I just look at it now in my mind as a temporary overlay, and as a temporary overlay it wasn't horrible. But I'm glad its gone. Its just too bad the temporary overlay lasted 6 years too long.

    LOL! To answer your question I went to find out what had already been done, and the SSE Wand pin with a piece of star was already done back in 2005. Typical. I thought it was only extinct attractions and shows but apparently not.

    I only have the Mr Toads Wild Ride pin.

    info can be found here:

    I guess this is a pointless thread now, although cjcolvin now knows to buy one in the heartbeat.

    Re: Wand Piece of History Pin

    Well, currently, you could sneak into the EPCOT Center parking lot and help yourself to any piece of the wand, which are being removed and placed next to the very last parking section in the east side of the lot.. The star is visibly sitting there. Hehehe...

    While I don't collect the 'Piece of History' pins... (Too gimmicky and I question their validity and authenticity), I would not mind seeing a wand pin in the "Remember When.." series, which has featured such wonderful past gems as the 25th anniversary Birthday castle and other noteworthy attractions like "Plaza Swan Boat" and "Walt Disney Story"... you know.. things that were worth doing at WDW before the DisneyInquisitors of the World took over with thier Eisnian opinions...?

    If you put a bag over one of the tips, do you think you could convince a cast memeber you bought it and would like it delivered to your room? carrying it around sounds like heavy work

    Re: Wand Piece of History Pin

    When I first read the subject of this thread, I thought there was going to be a pin that commemorated the removal of the wand (and that depicted the wand in the process of being dismantled).

    That, I would buy.
