    the one on splash.. when you float under it on the log... if you look up at it.. it is hallow and it has three little poles that hold it up, it is just like floating in front of the mountain made to look like it was built in

    I know the golden vehicles INSIDE the attractions are going to stay, the photo-op ones will be going away, as well as the 50s... But they will probably go into storage as Disney keeps EVERYTHING they ever use. I saw some really old stuff whilst traveling backstage one day...

    Re: Will Disney sell or auction golden 50's?

    Sooner or later some of it will show up on eBay. Disney does have an eBay account, I've seen then sell all kinds of park stuff there, like the old sign that use to be at the entrance before DCA was built. ( I would love to know who got that and where it is now! ) When they sold the keel boat on there I sooo wanted to hit the lottery and buy one just to put in my back yard!!!

    The actor John Stamos owns it. Id love to see pictures of it since its supposed to be in his backyard. The other sign after the original Disney still owns, The D is in the museum at Oakland CA.

    Im bored, lets go to Disneyland.

    I doubt they'll sell the HUGE stuff, but I can see them getting rid of all of the 50s on the street lights on Main Street and the smaller ones on buildings and attractions.

    I can't imagine Disney selling the crowns... they're HUGE.. but you never know. Afterall, they did auciton off Skyway buckets, PeopleMover vehicles, and old Space Mountain rockets, right?

    Well, I thought about that. Would Disney sell the big stuff. The alternative is storage or trash. I don't believe that they would trash the crowns if they could sell them. Remember they even sold the worn out vehicles that they replaced. I am sure that they will try to sell the crowns and get the money. I don't believe they would try to store them for 25 years for the 75th anniversary!

    I though Disney did away with ebay auctions in favor of thier own auctions? I will be watching to see if they do auction off stuff from the 50th. I know earlier this year I just got hold of some of the banners from the 100 years of magic.

    Can you remember the name of the store? I know I've seen used ride vehicles on it before....

    Edit: I found it, but the store I'm thinking of specializes in WDW surplus:
