Tom Corless' 11/7/09 World of Disney New York Report
As we countdown to the closure of the World of Disney New York store on 5th Avenue in New York City, I have been trying to get in as many visits as possible. On Saturday, I made a trip to the store to take part in the final Disney pin trading morning. Here are some photos I managed to take amid the insane crowds:
A Christmas Carol has filled the windows of the store
This sight will be gone soon
Halloween window displays were still up
The following Vinylmation pictures can also be seen on The Vinylmation Station website
Even though the Holiday Vinylmation is displayed, they are sold out
Urban Series #2 still available…
As is Clear Series #1 and Park Series #2
The first 3 series of Vinylmation Park pins were available as well
Some NYC christmas merchandise is available for the last time
Plenty of holiday plush
More holiday merchandise
This was a placemat, I’m hoping for more merchandise with this artwork
Some more elegant decorations
As I stated earlier, I was visiting the store for the final Disney Pin Trading Morning, and many other guests did the same. This line for a pin board was much longer than this picture shows.
The crowded pin trading area
When raffles were drawn, a huge crowd gathered
A special board was made for the event, it is supposed to be going to the next Trading Night at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
Most wrote a special message, I wrote my name….
Everyone who attended the event received a very special gift
We received the “Celebrate Everyday” Mickey & Minnie pin that was released in January, but with a special gold finish!!!
