|Dave Smith, director of the Walt Disney Company Archives and long-time Disney Historian, has selected the top 20 moments in Disney Theme Park History. This pin celebrates the first Disney Theme Park in Florida - the Magic Kingdom® Park. |
This Limited Edition pin features Mickey Mouse sitting on a bench in the Magic Kingdom® Park. The yellow balloon next to Mickey is "free-d" - Fastened Rubber Element on a pin for Extra Dimension. The "Dave Smith Medallion" is a pin-on-pin. Martha Widener from Disney Design Group created the artwork for this pin. It is #7 out of 20 in the Dave Smith collection.
A blue Cinderella castle is in the background. There are also smaller colored Mickey head ballons that are not free-D. Tinker Bell is on the golden Mickey head medallion in the lower left corner. Red flags fly from the castle towers.
Dave says, "The Magic Kingdom® Park at Walt Disney World® Resort opened in Florida on October 1, 1971."
