  • Disneyland 54th Anniversary Pin... (logic?)

    So I must admit Im not a huge pin collector, but I do like to get pins for specific special occasions that I attend, like Disneyland's Birthday. I went to the park this Friday, expecting to be able to buy the 54th Anniversary pin, only to be told that it had been released on June 18, 2009. Can someone PLEASE explain to me the logic behind this? Why would a pin commemorating a specific event be released a full MONTH before the event!?! There was literally ZERO 54th anniversary ANYTHING to buy in the park on Friday. I was so disappointed...

    For reference, this is the pin Im referring to:

    I picked one of these up last month and thought I was just getting one of probably several pins, this one just being released a little early. I wonder why it happened this way?

      Seems to be the way that Disney releases its pins (and maybe merchandise, although I have not paid as much attention to this). For instance, Halloween pins are usually released in August and I do remember last year, a pin commemorating Walt Disney's birthday (early December) was released in November. I think it must be a marketing ploy ... people are more apt to purchase something prior to the actual date or event, rather than after.

        Seasonal pins, true. Although it seems that the pins with a specific date on them I didn't usually see prior to that date.

          That would have been like releasing the 50th Anniversary "I was there" pin a month early. Makes zero sense. Im almost 100% positive that I bought the 51st pin and the 52ns pins on the actual July 17th date...

          Pins with a date on them should be released on that date, right?

            I hate that. They do it for everything like that it seems, even dated pins. And they can be sold out before the actual dae, esp. pins like that (which is very cute!)
            Good morning, son
            In twenty years from now
            Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
            And I can tell you 'bout today
            And how I picked you up and everything changed
            It was pain
            Sunny days and rain
            I knew you'd feel the same things...
