This great little pin was an item I found on eBay oh-so many years ago. I was delighted to find it in its original presentation box. But details about the pin itself have been hard to find.
Disney Resort Cast Member DREAM Silver Award Costume Pin
DREAM stood for Disney Resort Experiences Are Magical if my research is correct! Only Resort Cast Members who worked in a resort during this program earned the ears which were worn on the name tag.
There are two versions of the silver pin, one with white writing (shown above) and one with black writing. There is also a similar gold pin with DREAM in black. Both pins are hard to find, with the silver one being more common, but I have come across gold ones in the past but without the display case. The pins measure 1/2″ (1.3 cm) tall by 5/8″ (1.6 cm) wide.
I have kept it in the original presentation box and have never worn it. But I think I might start wearing it as a tie pin.
Not being a Cast Member, I don’t know the details behind this pin. If you are a Cast Member, and remember this pin, please comment below with any information you may have so that I can update this post. Most importantly, I obviously would like to know if the details I have shared already are correct, but also when this appreciation program was in effect and what one had to do to receive the award.
Thank you in advance!
