Does WDW still have these for sale? If they do, where can you buy them?

Thanks. I was thinking they might not be there. Disneyland doesn't have many if any, anymore. Sad, I like the badges.

I really enjoyed buying are wearing these but unfortunately Disney does not sell them anymore. A few years ago I got some off ebay from someone in CA that got them for me at Disneyland.

We were married in November 2008 in Disney and I made my own Guest of Honor badges for all our guests. I purchased some rectangle make your own badges off a website - like ones they use for meetings and conventions and then made a powerpoint docment. I made a box the size of the badge - colored it in with red and then added Disney clipart that I got for free off a clipart website. I then added on the top Walt Disney World and on the bottom Guest of Honor and then put the persons name in the center. They came out great and I could customize the clipart to the different persons personalities (for one of my girlfriends I put a pictures of Snow White on her badge and for her husband I put a picture of Grumpy). Everone loved them and some even wore them to the wedding. This was great so everyone knew everones name.

Here is a photo from our wedding with one of our guests wearing the badge. The girl in the front left wearing the fireman hat.

I would definately suggest making your own. You can even use the make you own buttons. I see them in CVS and Walgreens all the time near the photo department - sometimes they are round buttons but you coul definately customize them.

Wow - another Disney bride. When was your wedding - we were down in May 2008 for our planning session.

We made Welcome Bags for all our guests and included the badges in the bag - we also made folders with all the info the needed for the week - a Disney pen and pad set - small suntan lotion, Avon Disney chapstick - Disney nightlights - and other Disney things I can't even remember. We really enjoyed making the badges though and our guests loved them.

Definately try to make your own.

Our wedding was May 19 at the WP with reception at LS. Our guest gifts were given out early because so many people were staying so many different place and off property and through in the factor that they all arrived at different times, made giving them out at WDW a mess. lol We did Disney lanyards that I got off eBay and for the ID I used Vera Bradley Zip ID cases. Figuring most of the women would be the ones waring them. The few that we knew the men would ware the lanyard we did clear Disney holders.

I so like your idea of the name badges and its so cute that you made them yourself. I would have never thought of that. lol Its something personal for the guest. I like that. :)
