Remember these?





Loved that attraction! I was there the day it opened and it was wonderful! So sad to see it wasting away...

Awesome

Your stuff is amazing and I love the way you've displayed it. Is the shelving custom? Did you do it yourself? I have those little hinged attraction miniatures too. I love them. Were you a CM at DL?

I also miss Cranium Command. It was one of my favorites as well.

Please keep it coming...

The pics are from 7 display cases that are all the same. They have glass doors and solid doors at the bottom for storage and that's all filled too. There are three other additional display cases in the same area. Nope, never been a CM.

Here are some things from the early days of the resort hotels, 1973-1975:


These folders were waiting in your room with stationary, a park newsletter, post cards, etc. Also shown are matches and a bar of resort branded soap. The resorts each had custom bags too!


The red folder was the earliest, the blue ones followed with resort pics on the inside. Here are matches, merchandise bags, soap and a newsletter. There was also a small note pad with logo, not shown.

You guys really have awesome collections. I am new to the forum and Disney collecting in general and I was wondering how you guys acquire your items. I have seen some really cool items on EBAY (Leaf from the tree of life )...but finds like these are REALLY rare unfortunately...... and I'd love some help in expanding my search

I collected a lot of stuff new, from the parks or other Disney sources. eBay is OK, but the prices can be stiff sometimes, other times an item won't get a bid. Don't know where you live, but if you could get to the National Fantasy Fan Club (NFFC) Show & Sale, it will blow your mind and all your money! Probably the best source of cool stuff I ever found. It's in July every year, coinciding around Disneylands birthday. It is AWESOME!

Duh, I forgot to mention Theme Park Connection. You'll find them on eBay, and if you are in the Orlando area, you can visit live in person. The shop is located in Winter Garden, not too far off Route 50 (West Colonial). Even if you don't buy anything, you will be amazed by what you find there!
