    Would like people's opinions of what they think the two fully restored signs for the restaurant are worth? I know the post cards have sold for $500 and up but never had a sense for the signs.

    thanks for any input,

    WOW! These are not only one-of-a-kind pieces of Disneyland's onstage history, but of a very special period in that history: Disneyland's first decade. In addition, they are from the only celebrity-named and owned restaurant in Disneyland's history. They have, quite literally, no equivalent anywhere in Disney theme park history. My guess is the pair of them, restored, easily would be in the five figures.

    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."
