A collection of Limited Edition pins inspired by Disney Pinbassadors has been created for Mickey's Pin Odyssey. A Disney Pinbassador provides strategic direction for the Disney Pin Experience and finds new ways for Guests and Cast Members to "Continue the Disney Pin Trading Tradition" at Disney Parks and Resorts.
This Limited Edition pin was inspired by Timm Lundeen, Project Manager for Disney Pin Trading at the Disneyland® Resort. Timm's design features in the Hitchhiking Ghosts from The Haunted Mansion® Attraction.
Regarding the design, Timm says, "Continuing with my inspiration of making our Guests part of the magic, I thought it would be fun to put a twist on the finale scene of the Haunted Mansion, where the Ghosts are the unsuspected riders and it is your image that they see in the mirror."
Triple-layer pin: the ornate front frame with the gargoyle and Haunted Mansion logo is black-metal; the middle layer with the metallic-blue ghosts is silver-finished; and the back layer with the shiny mirror is also silver-finished.
SIZE: approx. 1 7/8" H x 2" W.
Back of pin: sand-textured, 2 pin posts;
Official Pin Trading 2008 logo
Mickey's Pin Odyssey logo
