Disneyland 50th Anniversary Exclusive Dessert Plates and Pins


Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today I am making a departure from my usual faire, and format. Necessity dictates that I push the limits of my creativity, and what I am willing to part with… in order to escape. Escape from a place… well you have seen the videos and you have heard my tales. Its called ‘Sweetening the Pot’, that which I am about to do.

.

Indiegogo calls it ‘Perks’ also known as incentives. Whatever you call it, I am digging deeper than ever before.

.

The year was 2005. The date was May 4th. Disney and Disneyland were kicking off a six-month Celebration. This was my friend Allen’s fifth year working for Disneyland at the Blue Bayou restaurant. For the next six months all employees were asked to postpone vacations, curtail sick days and come to work every day scheduled and not miss a beat.

.

If an employee did this, at the end of that six month period they would receive; a two week paid vacation, favored status for next promotion and a collection of Commemorative pins and plates. Allen made it to the end of the six months, and worked there another five years. He was quite proud of himself fpr the accomplishment he had undertaken. They bestowed the gifts, just as promised, with a commemorative plaque. He received Six Disneyland DESSERT PLATE Sleeping Beauty Castle 50th Anniversary Disney crownsand five of the pins (One – Disney 50th Anniversary Main Street Popcorn Cart Walt & Mickey Jumbo Easel Pin)

.

For the past eight years he has treasured these items like no other. They have been kept safely in their boxes, padded with their pads, and (most) never used at all. The plates have never been out of the boxes for more than a min. and never used to eat!

.

With the first week of Daniel’s Relocation & General Relief rapidly approaching the end of one week, he came to me with “an offer you can’t refuse…”. For the use of this campaign, and in hopes of a better life for me, I have the distinct honor and pleasure of brining these items, as a perk, to my campaign.

.

I am in the process of setting these items up as ‘Perks’ @ Daniel’s Relocation and General Relief  campaign @ Indiegogo. However, I am going to include a review of all the items being offered right in this article. I am struggling with the ‘pricing’ of these items. The value, on the market place range from $20.00 to unavailable.

.

I am leaning toward setting the whole sets for higher price because of the rare items. With all the items and ‘sets’ what is posted is the ‘Suggested Contribution’ to get the corresponding perk. As a donor you always have the option of donating larger amounts and taking the desired perk.

.

This was a difficult decision for both of us and more so for Allen because he went six months without; being late once, calling in sick, over staying a lunch and accepting all offered open shifts. He really put his nose to the grindstone and is/was extremely proud when he was awarded these 50th Anniversary Annual Passholder Exclusive Commemorative items. I am hesitant to offer them for this purpose. However, this first week has given me grave concerns and I realize something has to change. I am hoping that this might be part of that change.

.

The first shot is of all six Disneyland 50th Anniversary Annual Passholders Exclusive Dessert Plates:

Next I will show each of the six dessert plates with notes on the special or rare plates. First will be the most sought of the six, Disneyland Sleeping Beauty’s Castle:

Next will be Number Five Tinkerbelle’s plate;

Next is one of the ‘Crowns’ dessert plates. I do not know of their rarity or special designations, like Blue Fairy or Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. This is plate number four;

Next is my personal favorite, number three plate the ‘Blue Fairy’ plate;\

Finally, plate number one the last of the ‘Crowns’ plates.

That finishes up the amazing dessert plates that I will have posted as perks. They each come with the Certificate of Authenticity pictured below;

That completely wraps up the dessert plates that are going to be offered @ Daniel’s Relocation and General Relief Indiegogo Campaign. They are all in pristine condition. Never out of the box for more than the time it took to take these pictures. Never used for eating, no chips or defects.

.

Really tired and a lot of pain. Last I am going to display the pins that are going to be available. They are all 50th Anniversary Annual Passholders Exclusive Frequent Diners Reward Pins. The first image is of the whole set, all four types of pins I have available.

  1. These will be available as ‘Perk’s at my Indiegogo campaign. (http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/daniel-s-relocation-general-relief/x/753895)
    I am just doing my best to figure out their ‘worth’ in today’s market… and assign a reasonable ‘Donation’ for them prior to posting. I have found out that some of the items are “very difficult, if not impossible, to find…”
    I am discouraged by the lack-luster response to my campaign… depressed is more like it, and I am hoping these items might bring some interest.
