20 Pieces of Vintage Disneyland Were Auctioned Off And Here’s What People Paid For Them

How much would you pay for an original piece of vintage Disneyland? How about a “Zorro” costume worn by Guy Williams for $28,750? Or an original prospectus for potential investors in Disneyland, which fetched $10,600? Those were some of the hundreds of memorabilia items sold at the “Remembering Disneyland” auction earlier this month in Sherman Oaks.

Hundreds of bidders from around the world went online, called in by phone or bid in person during the 7-hour Van Eaton Galleries auction on Dec. 16 of Disneyland items owned by former cast members and early designers.

“There was something for everyone in this auction. It was also very special because most of the items in it came from people that actually worked at the park, or had a hand in creating it,” said Mike Van Eaton, Co-Founder of Van Eaton Galleries. “Next year we will be hosting several more Disney-related auctions offering rare and unique items from the “Happiest Place on Earth.”

What sold for the most money? HERE are some of the results:

This original lobby prop key cabinet from the Tower of Terror attraction at Disney California Adventure sold at auction for $12,650. 

This original model for creation of the elephants on Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise sold for $12,075.

This 1969 hand-silk-screened poster advertising the Haunted Mansion and its “hitchhiking ghosts” sold for $6,500. 

Collection of 7 Disneyland ticket books and loose tickets issued between 1956 and 1980, including for A-E tickets to ride on Disneyland attractions, sold for $403. 

An early metal cast member’s ID badge, from around 1955 to 1962, sold for $2,875.

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms Trailer

Walt Disney Pictures has revealed the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, coming to theaters on November 2, 2018. You can watch The Nutcracker and the Four Realms trailer using the player below!

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.

Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new holiday feature film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

Most famously adapted as a ballet by Tchaikovsky in the late 19th century, the Nutcracker tale originated as a short story titled The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E.T.A. Hoffmann in 1816. In it, a young girl’s dolls come to life on Christmas Eve alongside a noble nutcracker, who protects her from a villainous army of mice.

Cyclops Print Works To Release Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs ‘The Hag’ 80th Anniversary Edition Print On December 14, 2017

Cyclops Print Works will please this Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs ‘The Hag’ 80th Anniversary Edition Print on December 14, 2017.

Released on December 21, 1937 at the Carthay Circle Theater. A feat in cinema history, the first full-length cell animated feature film. In 1989, the US Library of Congress deemed the film “Historcally significant” and selected it for preservation in the National Film Registry. It is ranked in AFI’s list of ‘100 Greatest American Films’ and named ‘The greatest American animated film of all time’.

Mondo released the ‘Evil Queen’ version on November 4th of this year at Mondocon. We thought it was so nice, we had to have the incomparable Tom Whalen do it twice. We didn’t just want a colorway variant, we wanted to introduce a completely new element to freeze this iconic film in time–and with the flick of Tom’s pen he transformed the Evil Queen into her ‘Wicked ol’ Hag” form.

Printed on a beautiful stock that gleams when the light hits it just right. Named “White Gold”, Cyclops Print Works knew they had to dub it “Snow White Gold”….
