How about a look at a few old(er) pinback buttons from Disneyland and beyond? I can do without most of the pins featuring portraits of Mickey and pals, but these are a lot more interesting.
Lucky kids in the audience of the Golden Horseshoe Revue received buttons like this one. Pepsi Cola probably footed the bill, I'll wager. Follow the link to this photo, where you can see some blurry boys in the lower left proudly wearing their buttons.
This one is a newer version; I'm guessing the first one is from the early 60's (or even the 50's... this same Pepsi logo can be seen on the attraction poster), while this one is from the mid-to-late 60's; maybe even into the 70's. Does anybody know if there were other variations?
Many of you already know that Walt Disney World was not supposed to get a version of "Pirates of the Caribbean". Instead they would get something called the "Western River Expedition" - it would have been similarly lavish, only with cowboys and indians. However, the public demanded a version of POC for Florida, which finally opened in December of 1973. I love this pin! Imagine the excitement, especially if you were a kid.
