Have you ever wanted to own a unique and authentic Disney item? Maybe a stretching room portrait from the Haunted Mansion or an actual ride vehicle from Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. Here’s how you can get your hands on these pieces and more.
The Walt Disney Company has a rich history that roughly begins a century ago. The Archives have gone to great lengths to keep artifacts and stories alive through museums, traveling events, and more. Donna recently attended a special tour of The Walt Disney Archives when it opened in Memphis Tennessee. You can read all about her day and see photos of the beautiful costumes, items, and artifacts.
Wouldn’t it be so cool to own some of this history? A Potter & Potter Auction is giving you the opportunity to bid on close to 500 items from different parks and time periods.
The items are as small as Disneyland tickets from 1955 to as large as an actual ride vehicle from Mr. Toad’s Wile Ride at Disney World. Let’s take a look at some of the most unique and fun items that are part of the auction.
Disneyland Park Mailbox
This turn-of-the-century style mailbox was used throughout the Disneyland Resort, including Main Street, U.S.A.! It is estimated to be worth between $1500 and $2000, and current bidding is at $1100.
Splash Mountain Items
Do you love Splash Mountain? Are you trying to get your hands on all the items before its retheme? Look no further than this lot of early and rare Splash Mountain items.
These maps, bumper stickers, glasses, and more can be yours – bidding is currently at $250.
Framed Walt Disney Autograph
A certificate of authenticity is located on the back of this photo and autograph display of Walt Disney himself. This photo is iconic and I know many of you would love to own Walt’s signature!
Right now, the bidding is at $750 but will undoubtedly increase.
Disneyland Cast Member Pin
Get in on the earliest Disneyland Resort history with this 1950s Cast Member pin! Worn by an actual Cast Member in the 50s, this is definitely something worth considering for your personal collection.
Haunted Mansion Stretching Room Portrait
Finally, my favorite item in the entire auction: a stretching room portrait from the Haunted Mansion!
This wasn’t used in the actual Haunted Mansion attraction, but it did make its way around to several events and exhibitions. This is one of the highest priced items, with a minimum bid of $26,000.
How to bid on these items
It would be so neat to own a few of these pieces! Everything from Cast Member costumes and attraction posters to artwork and sculptures can be yours if you’re the highest bidder!
