“This collection is beyond extraordinary,” said Mike Van Eaton, Founder & President of Van Eaton Galleries. “The breadth of this vintage collection and the rarity of the memorabilia are a true testament to the genius of Walt Disney. It tells the story of Disneyland from the beginning like we have never seen before and I am sure we won’t ever see again.”

The collection literally has a little bit of everything from Disneyland including several first year cast member ID badges, in-house ride manuals and procedures, pre-opening employee packets as well as original shopping bags, popcorn boxes, menus, souvenirs and much more.
