New Buttons Spotted at Disney Parks
There is nothing more iconic to the Disney parks than the complimentary buttons, whether it be, “I’m Celebrating,” “First Visit,” or “Happily Ever After.” Everyone knows them, and everyone loves them. And now you can grow your collection with Disney’s new line of parks-inspired buttons!
You can now find a two pack of buttons at most stores throughout the parks. I first saw them at the Emporium during my trip three weeks ago. They’re styled after the complimentary buttons’ aesthetic, but feature movie and park references. They’ll also run you $9.99 a pack, plus tax.
Parks themed merchandise is my FAVORITE type of souvenir to get at Disney, because they remind me of “home,” the most. I am living for the “Meet Me at the People Mover,” button, and I absolutely adore the “I’m Here for the RIDES,” one! I think these are so cute, and the perfect way to accessorize any bag or jacket. I’m surprised Disney didn’t think of this earlier.
In all honesty though, Etsy sellers have been making these types of buttons for years. Just search “Disney buttons,” and you’ll find hundreds of these. I actually own a couple of buttons from Etsy shops, before Disney came out with their own line. However, the Etsy ones use Disney’s intellectual property, which obviously Disney already owns, so I wouldn’t be surprised if Disney starts cracking down on the Etsy sellers. Only time will tell though…
What do you think of the new buttons? Which ones are your favorites? Are you going to buy a pair? And what do you think of the “bootleg,” Etsy buttons? Was Disney wrong for copying a prolific group of sellers, or do they have every right for lifting the Etsy buttons ideas? Let me know in the comments down below!
