Pinbassador Inspirations - Fantasmic! Jumbo Pin
Limited Edition: 500) - Retail $40.00
(Limit ONE (1) per Guest)

This Jumbo Limited Edition pin was inspired by Timm Lundeen, Project Manager for Disney Pin Trading at the Disneyland® Resort. Timm's design resembles a roadside billboard and features Maleficent transforming into a ferocious fire breathing dragon. The billboard reads "Experience the wonder of Fantasmic!"

When asked about his Pinbassador Inspirations, Timm replied, "While thumbing through a book with vintage images of California, I was inspired by the artistic styles of billboards around the country. Fantasmic! lends itself to be interpreted as a billboard, as it epitomizes the word odyssey in the battle of good vs. evil."

Pinbassador Inspirations - Hitchhiker's Beware
Limited Edition: 1000 - Retail $10.95
(Limit TWO (2) per Guest)

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."

Pinbassador Inspirations - Aloha from Disneyland® Jumbo Pin
Limited Edition: 500 - Retail $40.00
(Limit ONE (1) per Guest)

This Jumbo Limited Edition pin was inspired by Steven Miller, Project Manager for Disney Pin Trading at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Steven's design resembles a postcard and features Mickey Mouse in a tropical outfit.

When asked about his Pinbassador Inspirations, Steven replied, "For every good odyssey, it is customary to send postcard greetings to friends and family. I enjoy collecting vintage Disney postcards and sharing the "Aloha" spirit with others. In this pin, I combined those two interests as Mickey Mouse sends greetings from the happiest place on earth, the Disneyland® Resort. Hang Loose!"

Pinbassador Inspirations - To Infinity and Beyond
Limited Edition: 1000 - Retail $10.95
(Limit TWO (2) per Guest)

This Jumbo Limited Edition pin was inspired by Steven Miller, Project Manager for Disney Pin Trading at the Walt Disney World® Resort. Steven's design features Astronaut Mickey Mouse on an odyssey in space.

Regarding the design, Steven says, "Space flight would be the ultimate odyssey for me. Having landed on Mars in last year's pin, Mickey Mouse now journeys to the biggest planet in our solar system, Jupiter. As I'm no closer to becoming an astronaut this year, I can at least enjoy an "out-of-this-world" experience on Space Mountain® in the Tomorrowland® Area."
