Walt Disney World Resort Salutes U.S. Olympic Team With a Commemorative Pin Event at Downtown Disney Marketplace.
Pin trading is a both an Olympic and Disney tradition, and with the 2004 Olympic Games right around the corner, Walt Disney World Resort is celebrating with special commemorative Olympic pins and an all-new Olympic themed pin event at Downtown Disney Marketplace.

In conjunction with the United States Olympic Committee's (USOC) exclusive pin licensee, Aminco International, a collection of pins and pin accessories featuring the world-famous Disney characters supporting the U.S. Olympic Team will be released during a 8-week long event beginning July 3, 2004. In total, more then 50 Olympic-inspired pins -- many of them limited edition pins -- will be released throughout the celebration. Disney's Pin Traders at Downtown Disney Marketplace will be the central location for all Olympic-inspired pin activity. Guests purchasing these special pins will help support the U.S. athletes as they prepare and travel to Athens for this year's Olympic Games.

On select days throughout the event, current and former U.S. Olympians will be at Downtown Disney Marketplace to meet with guests, sign autographs and pose for pictures. Guests can also catch a glimpse of a real Olympic medal, as Olympians will bring their medals with them to Disney's Pin Traders. Athletes are scheduled to appear between 1-4 p.m. on the following dates:

  • Bob Beamon (July 3) - Won gold medal and set long-jump world record at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. His jump of 29 feet, 2 ½ inches was a world-record until 1991.

  • Sheila Taormina (July 10) - Current member of the U.S. Olympic team competing in the Triathlon. Taormina won a gold medal in the 1996 Atlanta Games and recently won the 2004 International Triathlon Union World Championship in Portugal.

  • Dennis Mitchell (July 17) - Won the gold medal in the 4x100m relay and bronze medal in the 100m at the 1992 Olympic Games. Won a silver medal in the 4x100m in the 1996 Games.

  • Dot Richardson (July 31) - Won a gold medal in the 1996 Atlanta Games as a member of the U.S.A. Softball Team. Richardson will be commentating for Softball during the 2004 Olympic Games on NBC.
