  • What's your best Disneyland/Disney collectable?

    pretty simple, is there one prized possession you bought on a trip or something with sentelmental value? I have two that I can think of. One is I bought on Thanksgiving 4 years ago is the HM attraction poster as big as it comes and its now my vocal point of my living room. And two, the Hat Box Ghost statue, he's now a member of the family and we named him Charles haha.

      I'm bringing home the actual park one napkin at a time.

      Given my current average is one trip every 7 years (as I will have been thrice in 21 years by May next year), it may take a while...

        My most valued keepsake from the Park is a porcelain Castle from back in 1967. I also have a porcelain 7 Dwarfs pencil sharpener in the shape of a barrel with the little guys around it.

        I got them both during my first trip to the Park.

          Baby Yeti! Okay, I got it in Florida. But it's so cute!

          As far as Disneyland stuff, I'd have to say it's a tie between my black and red crystal Evil Queen tiara and the swag I got at the PotC: DMC premiere.

            My favorite is a park guest guide/map book from 1967. The most valuable is probably one of my signed art pieces in a drawer or behind a desk. My wife's favorite is a hand sketched Gurgi signed by the artist. The one I show off the most is a large 30+ year old Mickey button I wear at the bottom of my pin lanyard when I wear a lanyard. Oh, or my complete set of Donruss Disneyland cards from 1965ish.

                I have an opening day cast member coin from Tokyo Disney Sea. I don't even remember how I got it. I looked in a bag one day and there it was though.

                    Cool! I LOVE Disneyland collectibles. My home is filled with lots of them. My current favorite(s) are the set of bronze Partners Statues (Pinocchio, White Rabbit, Chip N Dale, Dumbo, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Pluto). These are currently sold in the Disneyana shop, among other places. Years earlier I got the larger version of the bronze Partners Statue (Walt and Mickey). All together they look great. They bring me back to the park every time I look at them.

                    (I also had to buy the bronze hub statue of Brer Rabbit from Walt Disney World, which they substituted for the White Rabbit.)

                    In general, I especially enjoy Disneyland collectibles that are reproductions of things ACTUALLY present in the park - such as the bronze statues from the hub, the attraction posters that hang in the tunnels, or reproductions of things like the old Barker Bird from WDETR, or the big figure of the Pirate Auctioneer. I also like old maps of the park.

                    I just started a thread related to collectibles. I asked about the correlation between one's proximity to the park and and their tendancy to buy these things.

                        My best friend's #43 blue Skyway bucket that hangs from his 14ft ceilings(which of course isn't technically mine, but I'm callin' in 'best friend privledges'!) ....or, y'know, maybe my 1975/76 America Sings park guide, everytime I look thru it I get a dejavu sensation. It's a toss up....

                          That's the Barker Bird, Jose's cousin. He used to sit outside the Tiki Room, but he caused a major bottleneck because everyone stopped to stare at him. Jose is red, green, and yellow.

                              Mine could be my Shag Tiki Room 40th anniversary signed mug.

                              I have a lot of attraction posters that are framed, but, that Shag mug is precious because it's signed.
