I have a few childhood relics that are from DL (mind you, they won't be that old to you guys, but they're old to me.) I have this huge jumbo Minnie Mouse (who has a burn in one ear), a minnie mouse fanny pack, a minnie mouse tote bag (is anyone else seeing a pattern here ), and a dusty Fozzie bear that I actually got from WDW, not DL.
Oldest and best curio? Try one of Walt's toenail clippings. As a child i was roaming the old Main Street Firehouse, I had scaled front seat of the horse drawn Fire Wagon, looked up and the window to Walt's Apartment was open. and there was a bare set of toes peering over the sill. They had pulled the wagon out into the daylight and I was directly below Walt's window. I heard a loud "click" and looked up to have this sharp brownish shard fall into my left eye. I screamed and the toes retreated from the sill, leaving the white lace drapes blowing in the summer breeze. A face peered over the ledge as I extracted the fiber from my eye. It was blurry, but the man was noneother than Walt. All he said was "Why the hell do those damn kids have to scream?" and slid the window shut..I framed the toenail and it hangs over my mantle. May 14, 1963. What a magic day.
My 1st trip to DL was in 1988 when I was 7 years old. My mom bought me a little plastic Snow White and Doc toy to keep me quiet during the MSEP. I also have a big purple Minnie button and a park map from the year.
