Souvenir Friday-Disneyland Department Patches

An unusual set of cast member patches from the costumes. I believe these are for the various technical departments at the park. However, I have not seen any photographs of these being worn, or even other examples. The first is for the vehicle maintenance department, the second is for engineering department and the final patch is for the Disney University. I believe these were worn on green work shirts. The castle graphic reminds me of the 1985 30th Anniversary logo. Any information on these patches would be appreciated.

Odd! I'll keep an eye out for these appearing in any Line photos.

..Very...Very.. interesting. I agree about the graphics being Mid-80's.. that layered look was popular for logos at the time.

Maybe they are just proposals that never went through.

They kind of look like the merit badges that Boy and Girl Scouts wear!

Have never run across anything like these. Fascinating.


Do they look as though they were used? That is, do they show any wear? Thanks for the look.

The patches do not appear to have been sewn on to anything. They do have some age toning.
