  • Taking something from the parks.

    When you have the urge to swipe a prop of item from the park, what do you take? Give us what you have done.

    Personally, I have swiped a piece of moss of tarzan's treehouse once!

    I don't know about everyone else, but personally I am a napkin fiend. I always take a few (handful) more and use them at home.

      Interestingly enough, a good guideline for Disney's merchandise buyers and designers would be to stock the shops with what could be props.

      People want to take home with them little pieces of Disneyland.

          Disneyland used to sell things that looked like they came from Frontierland or Adventureland or Tomorrowland. But, now, every shop has the same souvenirs, and none of them support the show anymore.

            Personally, I could never bring myself to steal something from the park. Not a big fan of stealing in the first place. Secondly, why would you want to essentially destroy something you claim to love so much by damaging it?

            I was always tempted to grab a vinyl leaf from the Swiss Family Treehouse, but never did. I also wanted to grab a piece of ballast (the crushed granite gravel surrounding the train tracks), but couldn't even bring myself to steal so much as a single tiny stone.

            That said, I do have pieces from the DRR in my collection that no doubt made their way out of the park under suspicious circumstances--costume pieces, for example, and even decorative items from the trains themselves. Often, items like these can be found on Ebay.

            Of course, the people I've gotten these items from may very well have been allowed to take them legitimately--I have no way of knowing, and I guess that gives me some sense of it being OK that I have them.

              It's really sad that the shops don't fit the story anymore.

              Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                I picked up a piece of the thatched roof from the swiss family tree house. It had fallen to the ground. I wouldn't destroy anything. I was only 8 or 9 so I probably didn't really view it as stealing. I just picked it up and put it in my little brothers stroller. There are things that I would like to own but I wouldn't steal them.

                      Yesterday I got an extra paper plate under my slice of pizza at Pizza Port - and I took it!

                      What a rebel...

                      It says "The Happiest Place on Earth" - how could I not?

                        I don't think the original poster was talking about taking items that Disney expects you to take, or actually gives you--like napkins or sugar packets or plates or cups...I think he meant something a little more sinister, since he mentions taking "props," meaning actual pieces of the park itself.

                          Ask those two kids that tried to take a "prop" from the Haunted Mansion a couple of months back if it is worth trying to grab a souvenier without getting it from a gift shop...

                            I don't advocate stealing. Ciminality doesn't do a lot to show your love for the park.

                                Technically, taking extra napkins or condiments and using them at home is steeling as you are going beyond the expected use at the park, but I suspect it would be bad publicity if Disney pressed charges. Plus, it might be hard to determine what is considered extra. Disney might, instead, decide it was too expensive to stock napkins and then everyone would have to walk around with food on their faces.

                                  I could never take something from the park, it feels to much like home.

                                        I don't make a habit of stocking up on cheap rough napkins, (I never have taken them home, but I take a bunch when I'm there. Sometimes the food gets messy...LOL) but taking a napkin over a prop is minor. I have never taken sweet and low or other condiments either. It's so cheap just to buy it.
