Is there anything more iconic than Mickey Mouse? Mickey is known around the world to both the young and young at heart. I challenge you to find me someone who has never heard of Mickey Mouse! He is a symbol of fun and family throughout the world. And you may have heard, he’s celebrating his 90th birthday this year.
The Disney Gift Card team came together to create a special card to commemorate this milestone anniversary. I think you’ll agree – this card is pretty special!
Because Mickey Mouse is super special, this commemorative Disney Gift Card had to shine as bright as he does!
According to the Disney Parks Blog, Justin Hamana, Graphic Designer with Walt Disney Imagineering, developed the concept of a crystal-encrusted Disney Gift Card to honor this milestone anniversary. Specialists from Swarovski took the task all the way to Austria and developed a brand-new way to adhere crystals to the entire face of the card, something that had never been done before.
There is no denying that this card looks absolutely stunning! But of course, there is a limited number of cards available – 5,000 to be exact. All 5,000 cards are made with a metal core, encased in a protective plastic, and encrusted with over 2,500 premium Swarovski crystals. This commemorative item also includes a custom box almost as stunning as the card itself. Ready for display, the magnetic-closure box is the first to carry the Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series insignia and includes a vellum certificate describing the grandeur of the card.
A select number of these cards were available at the Destination D event last weekend, but now you too can get your hands on one! Guests at the Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort can take home one of these limited-edition cards.
Each card is $300 and is nestled in a box ready for display and is loaded with $90 redeemable for practically all things Disney — from Theme Park tickets, resort stays, Disney vacations and dining, and all the Mickey merchandise you could imagine. The Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series will be available for purchase starting December 4, 2018, at the locations below (while supplies last.) You can find the commemorative item at the following locations:
Walt Disney World Resort
Magic Kingdom Park: Main Street Cinema
Epcot: The Art of Disney
Disney Springs: The Art of Disney, Ever After Jewelry Co. & Accessories
Disneyland Park: Disneyana
Disney California Adventure Park: Off the Page
Downtown Disney District: WonderGround Gallery
If you do get your hands on an inaugural card in our Disney Gift Card Collector’s Series, know that it can be redeemed for practically all things Disney by scanning the barcode on the back. There is no magnetic strip, so your card will never be swiped. However, if you don’t want to carry it around in your wallet, know that you can merge the $90 onto a standard Disney Gift Card at DisneyGiftCard.com.
