  • Disneyland Attraction Posters. How to tell if Original or Reproduction?

    Hello All,

    I was wondering if anyone knows how to tell if an attraction poster from Disneyland is an Original or Reproduction? Are there any imprints or watermarks?

    I have a Pirates of the Caribbean poster (rather large) with no border. It looks somewhat old, but it's hard to tell. Any forensics help would be great.

    As always, thank you.

    My thought on this is to look at the paper. The Pirates original attraction poster is very rare and was silk screened. The (very good) reproductions sold at the Disney Gallery mall stores in the 90s were printed with process inks. If you know the matte feel of silkscreen vs the more slick feel of a modern sheet, you'll be able to tell.
