|Origin:||Walt Disney World|
|Limited Edition:||Yes, but edition size unknown|
|Original Price:|| |
|This pin was awarded to Cast Members who worked at Disney's Reservation Center during the peak season of 1997 for what I assume must have been some record setting volume of calls or rooms booked.|
The black Mickey head icon has three parts: The center portion (Mickey's head) looks like the end of a telephone mouthpiece. On the ear at left is Earforce One in gold with the abbreviation "WDIC" below it. On the ear at right is "CRO" in gold beneath the icons of Cinderella Castle (Magic Kingdom), Spaceship Earth (Epcot) and the Earful Tower (Disney-MGM Studios), all in gold. At the bottom is a gold banner with "DRC PEAK SEASON 1997" written in black.
Reportedly only 300 were made.
This pin came pinned to the corner of a business card-sized piece of card stock. The card had a funky 80's-like design on it and read, "Thank you for making Peak Season a success, Bob Gail, Vice President, Disney Reservation Center."
(CRO = Central Reservations Operations; WDTC = Walt Disney Travel Company)
*CRO & WDTC were later merged into what is now the Disney Reservation Center.*
