    Wow, that is a tough one...

    Hmmm, how about "How early do you start designing a pin for special Disney events?"
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    Probably the same reason Lilo and Stitch trailers featured 4 other Disney films.

    how do you finalize a complete concept for such a small item, as in how do you get the idea across on such a small space?

    Were do you get your ideas or does some one present with a certain topic?

    Does it take long from drawing to creation of a pin?

    1. How many different stages does a pin go through from concept to creation?
    2. Is any of the concept art available to see or even purchase?

    I would probably ask...
    Did you realize that pins would become such a huge part of WDW, and did you expect so many people (like me), to become so interested?

    what was their favorite pin to design.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things... and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. - Walt Disney

    Why don't you make more pins with some of the rarely seen characters on them?

    Like Shere Khan for example!!!!

    What are your stratagies for keeping kids interested and not allowing adults to ruin the fun? A perfect example is Beanie Babies and baseball cards.
