During a recent trip to Disney World, I became a little obsessed with pins. I didn’t buy a single one, but my eye was attracted to them … so I photographed them. And now you get to see them!
I love these Tower of Terror pins–the classic hotel key and a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign. Love them. They’re so clever and cute.
Have the need for speed? Well, too bad! You may not find it on Test Track, but I do dig this car-themed Mickey head pin. Another cool newer pin: Celebrate the 40th anniversary of Pirates! It’s a cool hinged pin–inside is a drawing of the prisoners and the dog with the keys to their freedom. Also: a very cool guitar pick pin for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and a Mickey pirate (another Pirates pin, but I just like Piratey things, okay?).
Two of my favorite Disney dragons from two of my favorite nighttime spectacles: Fantasmic! and Main Street Electrical Parade. Here, we’ve also got a really cool Sorcerer’s of the Magic Kingdom pin, which is a replica of the medal that Merlin gives in the final scene of the game. So cute!
How cute is this Haunted Mansion pin, featuring Chip and Dale? In classic C&D form, they’re see-sawing on a pair of haunted candle sticks. Dumbo, flying through the air! And I really love the way the red bubble on the Toy Story Midway Mania pin echos the game. Fun!
And finally, the most terrifying pin of all: the Yeti! But don’t worry–just like in real life, he doesn’t move! It only looks like he’s gonna grab you.
