......even more from the Disneyana Convention

......and new Disney Catalog Christmas Pins!!!

Here are some pictures of the Disney Catalog Advent Calendar Christmas Tree. The tree is a
four-sided tree with holes for 26 pins including two at the top of the tree. While you could put
any 26 pins on the tree that you want, Disney has 26 new pins to buy for you to put on the tree. There are 26 pins to countdown to Christmas. The pins come on cards with 4 pins each except for the 25th and 26th day of Christmas which is only 2 pins. The tree has the numbers 1-26 on it and each day you "hang" a new pin on the tree as you countdown to Christmas.
The pins provided are beautiful and all are based on original artwork from the Disney Archives.

Most of the pins are artwork from the Christmas cards that were sent out by Walt Disney
Enterprises each holiday season. The colors and art are perfectly represented. Check out the
Disneyland Castle for pin #20 is right from the Christmas card that Walt sent out. The tree is
expected to retail for about $18 and you could hang different pins each year.

Here's a peek at some pins for the Disney Auctions on Ebay coming up in September.

Below are pictures of Tink pins. The one on the bottom has "moving" wings, and each comes in an edition of only 100.


The picture shows the "Back to School" series of pins for Disney Ebay Auctions in September. Each is an edition of 100.
Dizpins would like to sincerely thank Daniel for all of this news and the scans. He reminds us that these are 'Sneak Peeks" of pins and pin set that may or may not be released in the future and as always, are subject to change.

......more from the Disneyana Convention

The entire book series from the Disney Store was on display as well as lanyards with changeable character faces. The Disney Store was also giving away lanyards with a large "Mickey trading" medallion at the bottom.

There was a very interesting Christmas tree of pins at the Disney Store booth. It looked like you buy the tree and "hang" your pins on it. It is actually an Advent Calendar shaped into a Christmas tree. As you count down to Christmas, you put a pin on the tree (you could actually put on any pin you want, but there is a set of 26 designed for the tree. The tree should retail for about $18 without pins. The pins were about $22 for each set of 4.

Plus, the entire next series of pins from the Store was displayed, too!!

Did someone say "series"???? Yes!!!

Sneak Peek at WDW 999 Happy Haunts Ball Pins

Here is a picture showing the logo pin for the 999 Happy Haunts Ball at WDW. It looks like the Haunted Mansion sign (logo) on a special backer card that says "Limited Edition" at the bottom of the card. The framed pin set shows Goofy being scared in the mansion in front of the 13 hour clock. The pins are in the four corners showing a bat, a candelabra, the clock, and Goofy. The 3rd pin in the picture is Dopey as an Artists Choice pin. I don't know for sure the event it is associated with, but it also looks like the lantern will "dangle" from the pick ax.

These are artist sketches.

At the Disneyana Mystery Event, if you purchased the Marie Osmond Adora Beau doll and you waited to have Marie Osmond personally sign the doll, Marie gave you a beautiful and very limited pin. The pin shows both Adora Bell and Adora Beau with Mickey Mouse. The back of the pin says: Official Disneyana Mystery 2002 - CONFIDENTIAL - Limited Edition of 300. The pins were not packaged with the doll. It was handed to you as the doll was signed.
The Search for Imagination Sneak Peeks!!
Another framed pin set for the September Pin Celebration featuring multiple Figments playing various musical instruments. The frame contains 6 different Figment Pins on a colored background. The edition is expected to be 50 but it might be as low as 25. This pin set it will be available by lottery for the September pin event.
A pin set that features 4 pins from the "Toot, Whistle, Plunk, Boom" cartoon. The frame contains the 4 cavemen as large pins. Again, the edition is expected to be 50 but other information suggested 25.
6 pairs of pins for the September pin event. The pairs show a character and their "alter egos" (i.e. Malificent and the Dragon). These might be rack pins since they are supposed to be part of one day's map hunt.
Artist sketch of the Halloween pin to be released at WDW. The pin is a slider with the witch and Donald's nephews riding the broom which slides on the pin.
Artist sketch of the pin to be released as the Veterans' Day pin for Disneyland.

Thanks to Marlene and Bob!!

From Snip's Mail Bag
Dear Snip,

I am not quite sure if I missed your message or you may not have had time to write but, I was wondering how long in advance you know about pin events at WDW. We are planning a vacation there in April and was wondering if one was in sight? We knew that last year there was a Princess Pin Event in Feb. and we were able to attend the Star Spangled Pin Event in June. Can you help me plan my vacation?



Well April huh ? Hmm seems to me .....now don't spread this around. But "sometime" that month there is going to be a few Easter Pins released. Oh and on April 1st they are releasing a Mystery Pin! The design is of Woody Woodpecker and Deputy Dog. Or was that the "other" park? Hmm I am a bit mixed up today but you can COUNT on Holiday pins from Disney that's for sure!

Generally, WDW announces pin event registration a few months in advance, but if it was like this year, they announced the entire year of pin events around the first of the year, so we can only hope that they do the same again for 2003, so we can ALL plan our vacations.

Speaking of pin events.....and making vacation plans...you might want to plan a vacation for December of this year for the Dizpins Family Reunion ...from what I have been told, it will be a spectacle to remember!!!

Happy Trading!


E-mail Snip with your questions!!!
