Most venues provide VIP (very important person) identifiers, be them a badge, a special bracelet, or a crown (!). Rue had an excellent relationship with The Walt Disney Company – her Estate still does – and so she would make frequent appearances at their request at various Disney events and locations. When Rue visited the Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, California they affixed this little gold set of Mickey Mouse ears to her lapel to designate her as a VIP. Rue really never needed such marks of distinction though because wherever she went her fans lined up to see her, to get an autograph, to pose for a photo, and to touch and talk with their beloved “Blanche.” It was obvious to ALL that Rue was a very important person, pin or not. Rue’s little gold Disneyland Hotel pin measures about an inch across and it comes with a print of the portrait of Rue with Mickey Mouse, and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
