From Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort and posted on the Disney Parks Blog.
It’s the summer of sparkle as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration! So what else do I have to dazzle you with? How about pins? Each month through September new limited edition pins from the Diamond Decades series honoring favorite attractions, characters and icons from past and present will debut. I asked Merchandiser Erin Catalano how the series of twenty-three Diamond Decades pins came about, here’s what she had to say.
“Our Disney Parks see constant change and evolution; we referred to a quote from Walt Disney stating, ‘Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world’ — that single quote sparked the idea for the entire collection.”
Available July 9 will be pins themed to Jungle Cruise, “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln,” Sleeping Beauty Castle and Storybook Land Canal Boats. Note: Edition sizes on the Diamond Decades pins vary.
Releasing the same day will be the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration themed pin of the month featuring Snow White as well as the bi-monthly Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder pin themed to “Alice in Wonderland.” Check it out!
On July 16, the Diamond Decades collection continues to grow with limited edition pins themed to King Arthur Carrousel, Main Street, U.S.A., and the Mad Tea Party.
Also being offered on July 16 is the final pin in the Countdown series – a limited release birthday collection logo pin, and a jumbo pin (edition size 1000).*
Pins will be available to purchase on their release dates at the following locations:
- Disneyland park – Little Green Men Store Command
- Disney California Adventure park – Julius Katz & Sons
- Downtown Disney District – Disney’s Pin Traders
*Tip: The Jumbo Pin will only be available to purchase at Little Green Men Store Command and Disney’s Pin Traders. The limited release birthday collection logo pin will also be available to purchase at additional locations other than those listed above, including Emporium and The Star Trader in Disneyland Park; Elias & Co. in Disney California Adventure park and World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District.
