  • Devoted to Disneyland- the Disney Insider- 5/10/05

    Actor, Musician, and Star John Stamos makes home the Happiest Place on Earth

    He's an actor. He's a drummer. He's a heartthrob. And John Stamos has one more distinction to his credit - he's also the proud owner of the original Disneyland marquee sign, as well as a treasure trove of other Disneyland memorabilia.
    Does this piss anyone else off???? I was hoping this sign would return to Disneyland for the 50th. I read somewhere else that he gave it to Rebecca Romaijn and that she has it in storage somewhere. Maybe I am just jealous......

      Did DLR ask/did he offer? :confused:

      I'm not angry, but I do think if John's collection of DL memoribilia ever gets too big, the 75th history exhibit should be at his house instead of the park...

          No one but Disney co should own this sign!! This is a travesty!! just plain wrong!!
          As young Indy would say "this belongs in a Museum." And rightly so for all to see.

            I believe he doesn't own the ORIGINAL Disneyland sign letters, but the 80's version.

            No matter, I'd love to take a ride on Adventure Thru Inner Space with Stamos!

              And what did we all learn from young Indy?

                I remember when he bought this some years ago. Look at it this way: if you could afford it and saw it on ebay or disneyauctions, wouldn't YOU buy it?? Look at the other ride vehicles that have been auctioned off lately, and that many have drooled over.

                And at least it went to someone who truly loves and cares for it. I don't have the room for it (or the money!), but I'm glad he got it.

                Most of my work over the last some years has been in the museum field, so I certainly have an extreme appreciation for the conservation, preservation and interpretation of historically important artifacts. I would hope that John Stamos is giving his prized possessions the loving care they deserve.

                ... If not, give me a call, John!

                  I thought it was funny he showed up last week at th 50th just fresh off the news his series was cancelled by ABC aka Dinsey. I was working at Warner Bros 2 years ago when his show "Thieves" was cannned, the crew were laughing all day cause he cried during all his scenes. Uncle Jessie isn't as hardcore as we once thought! Thats ok John we are fans of softies around here!

                    Disney will sell anything now, so if they really saw value in it they would have kept it. Shame on them for dumping their own heritage. i doubt they'd have paid to re erect it for the 50th anyhow. I'm not mad, but pleased to see that someone who loves it, has it, and is maintaining it, which until recently, is more than I could say for the parks. He probably takes dates under the sign to look up at the "D".

                      Apparently Uncle Jesse is also a fan of Catal.... ( :hint/tip: )
                      She said all she heard was wind, which was insulting, as my phone was in my back pocket...

                        I doubt Disney asked - I don't think it's in a Disney geek nature not to help out the Mouse when summoned to do so. I mean, come on, it would have been a big exhibit piece that said "On loan from the private collection of John Stamos" on a little placard - IN DISNEYLAND - who can resist that??

                          My understanding was that Anaheim passed a law banning signs larger than a certain size, presumably to limit some of the garish hotel signs. The Disneyland sign was too large so they had to play by this rule too (not bad, considering that overall this is a good law).

                          I'm okay with Stamos owning it. The guy is a former cast member and a good guy too, so better him than someone worse. You'd think that Disney would have held onto it though.

                            I just don't think it belongs in a warehouse, I wish it was on display- it is such a huge part of Disneyland history and I hated to see it go!

                              I think it's fine. He's a fan. And John Stamos. He did the keyboard kick!
