1980s Disneyland Buttons

Today offers a sampling of the myriad of buttons (and a Pirates Arcade stamped "Pieces o' eight") that could be found at Disneyland throughout the 1980s.

It is true, I was there when the Park turned 25 and again when it turned 30, but the Grad Nite button is not my own.

The "I'm A Winner" button came from the "Gift Giver Extraordinaire" and was accompanied by a large Mickey Mouse plush toy. One of my family members won it during a visit to the park in 1985. You may have a few buttons of your own floating around the house.

As for me, I have a small number of Disney pins but am NOT a pin trader.
Those folks drink a special kind of Kool Aid.
Talk about an addiction.
(Editor's Note: The above comments come from a grown man with a blog devoted to a slice of time over 20 years ago at Disneyland, who has a known affinity for coffee and Martinis---not exactly the type who should be casting "addiction" aspersions).

Have a Happy and Safe Labor Day Weekend all!
