New Pressed Coins Debut for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


dlr1215pm

Last month, my fellow Disney Parks Blog author and friend, Shannon Swanson, got a “Penny For Your Thoughts” as she took you inside the Electromechanical Shop and behind-the-scenes of the making of coin presses at the Disneyland Resort. Shannon mentioned that I would have exciting news to share, and I do — as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, we are introducing sixty (60) new pressed coins themed to favorite attractions, icons and characters!

How can you tell which designs are being introduced for the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration? Here are a few tips to help you out!

  • Look for the special 60-D symbol which appears on the art for each new die.
  • Each coin will bear a special back-stamp that says Est. July 17 1955 – Disneyland Resort 60-D!

One of my favorite things is the new Pressed Coin Location Guide that features all of the presses throughout the Disneyland Resort. All of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration pressed coins can be found by simply locating the diamond icon next to the coin image. Where can you find the pressed coin location guides? Great question — the new guides are available here on the Disney Parks Blog! Take a look at the images below or download the PDF here. You can also find printed brochures at City Hall in Disneyland park, Chamber of Commerce at Disney California Adventure park and select merchandise locations throughout the Disneyland Resort.

Tip: There is a specially designed Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration collector’s book to help you keep track of your collection.

Finally, there’s one last thing before I go: keep an eye out for special ‘Decades’ presses in the Downtown Disney District that will only be available for limited period of time.

It’s Lunchtime at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


It’s lunchtime and I have a hankerin’ for a turkey leg. Don’t mind if I do! I even traveled to Frontierland just so I could snap a shot with my turkey leg while wearing a coonskin cap. It seemed so apropos.

When they asked me to spend the day snacking my way around Magic Kingdom Park to kick off the Coolest Summer Ever at Walt Disney World Resort, I was honored.
