Mouse ears hat
I have just installed a nice, clean forum package which you can use to talk about Disney memorabilia collecting, buy/sell/trade, and even post photos of your own items if you have questions on valuation or something else.

You can find the link to the forums at the top of the site or you can enter the Disney Memorabilia forums here.

You'll need to create a free account to post messages, but after that, it's easy and smooth sailing! You need to enter an e-mail address to create the account (it's a requirement of the software) but rest assured that I will never sell or rent your information you provide. I may send a very rare e-mail to the forum list with important information, but I don't have any plans to at this time. If you really don't want to hear from me, you can select to not receive the forum e-mails in your Account profile.

Currently, there are just a few forums available which should hold most of the questions and other stuff that people will need for collecting Disney Memorabilia, but if you have ideas for addition categories or something like that, please be sure to let me know! You can use the forum called Site Suggestions or click the About link at the top of the page to e-mail me directly.

Enjoy the forums and lets get that community up and going! I need your help since the world of Disney collectibles is SO BIG! :D

Walt Disney Passport

April 13th, 2007 · No Comments

An original passport of Mr. Walt Disney is up for sale on eBay.  Here is an excerpt from the listing...

"This United States passport is dated August 19, 1965, and was issued to the legendary animator shortly after the giant success of Mary Poppins (1964) and 16 months before his death (December 15, 1966). Disney signed the passport twice in blue ink (as "Walter E. Disney"), including once along the edge of his smiling photo. It bears only one set of visa stamps, for a trip to and from London. Following Walt's death, Roy O. Disney, completing his brother's ambitious theme park in Orlando, insisted that the name become Walt Disney World -- a worthy tribute. Perhaps no other show business figure gave so much joy to so many people -- hence Disney's enormous popularity with autograph collectors -- and this passport, with two ultra-rare signatures, accompanying photo and visa stamps, provides one of the most desirable Walt Disney artifacts Heritage has ever offered. In Excellent condition with only very minor wear"

You can view the auction here.
