Here is what Disney Parks Blog interviewed Sr. Merchandising Manager Kevin-Micheal Lezotte, who spoke about his inspiration for the collection:

For me, the inspiration was our most fervent fans and collectors. I’m a huge fan and collector myself, and I know what it feels like to get something you love and didn’t think you’d ever find. These replica items will take some of our guests back to a time long ago when they were little and experienced the parks for the first time with their friends and family. Fun fact: A group of our team members went to the Walt Disney Archives to photograph many of the incredible souvenirs, and used those photos to help create some of the Vault Collection pieces you will see starting Oct. 1!

We cannot wait to see these items and more that follow when the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World kicks off on October 1.
