|silver and black, and says "Contact 96 Walt Disney World" on it with a Mickey head surrounded by a circle and stars. This was created for a Sci-fi convention that Walt Disney World was planning on holding in Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom back in 1996.|
The convention was undersubscribed, so Disney cancelled the full scale convention planned, refunded the attendees' money, and held a smaller one day event.
The nice thing was that along with the refund, the attendees received the merchandise, which included this pin and a watch and other items I'm not sure about. The pin and the watch were available for purchase by the public.
Retired: SOLD OUT
