Iconic Pieces of Disneyland Are Being Auctioned Off This Weekend
Plus original paintings, posters, furniture, and more from park insiders.
The collection contains 800 pieces, including several early original paintings used in the design of Sleeping Beauty Castle, an extremely rare Rainbow Caverns attraction poster, original signs from the Haunted Mansion attraction, and an original 1967 Autopia car body.
Other items are for buyers with more niche interests, like cast member I.D. badges or hotel room furniture. Parts of the collection are from Walt Disney World, EPCOT, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris. Many pieces are estimated at around a $3,000-$5,000 value, but some are expected to go for upwards of $60,000.
The collection is a peek into the wondrous history of Disneyland and Disney Studios, taking the the rarest and most prized historical Disney items from around the world.
"This is a very special collection because most of the items in it come from people that actually worked at the park, or had a hand in creating it," Mike Van Eaton, co-founder of Van Eaton Galleries, said.
If you’re a Disney lover who wants to own a piece of pop culture history, this could be your change to grab it before it’s going, going, gone.
