Friday Find: Mickey Mouse Pins c. 2000

I found this fun Cast Exclusive Mickey Mouse pin that says it all....

This particular pin was a Cast Exclusive as noted in the back. I have a feeling that it may have been something that was available at the time around the opening of Disney California Adventure since one of the images is of the bear icon of Grizzly River Run. 

I think the next pin was probably something that I also bought around the same time. I love that the pin is of the famous phrase that you see before going under the train tunnels as you enter Main Street U.S.A. It is a mini replica of the plaque. It also has a hanging piece with the dates 1995 to 2000. It could be to celebrate the millennium and/orDisneyland's 45 year anniversary.

These next two pins are interesting. I know the one with Walt Disney and Mickey is from my Disney employee credit union which is called, "PARTNERS." The other is just a fun classic image of Mickey Mouse. These two pins do not have a traditional pin back like you are used to seeing these days. 

I am going through my Disney pins and sorting them out. I figured that these all kind of go together. 

Happy Friday!

Friday Find: Disneyland 35th Anniversary Pin Set

I found this Disneyland 35th Anniversary Pin Set in one of my boxes that I was cleaning out. It was a Cast Member exclusive. I love that it celebrates the lands of Disneyland. The designs show off a recognizable image or icon as it relates to the themed land. The pins are very flat on the front surface. Remember, this is 1990 and it's just before Disney figured out their "pin" brand.

Here is an image of the back of one of the pins. It reads "Company D at Disneyland" which the name of the Cast Member store.

Disneyland's 35th anniversary was my first big celebration and event that I was able to experience as a Cast Member. I have a lot of great Disneyland memories associated with 1990. 

Happy Friday!

Friday Find: Disneyland Name Tag Cloisonne Pins

I found a small box in one of my drawers and opened it to find these two fun Disneyland cloisonne pins. I do remember purchasing these at Company D (Cast Member store).

The one with "MICKEY" commemorates Disneyland 45th Anniversary (2000) and the theme being "45 Years of Magic." The larger one, "MINNIE" is in the likeness of the new 2001 nametags that celebrated the opening of Disney California Adventure.

I have a Cast Member nametag from these periods so here they are placed side by side with the cloisonne pins so you can get an idea of how small (and cute) they are.
