    Amazing new MARK TWAIN replica now available at DisneyShopping.com!

    Strangely, DisneyShopping just recently released another item to commemorate Disneyland's 50th Anniversary. Nearly two years after the 50th, it looks like this item is a straggler - but an amazing straggler, indeed.



    Mark Twain Riverboat Replica - $399.00
    To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Disneyland®, Park Walt Disney Collectibles presents this superb replica of the paddle wheeler Mark Twain. A feature attraction at the park since it first opened, the Mark Twain -- named after the pseudonym of author of Samuel Langhorne Clemens, a favorite of Walt Disney -- was reputedly the first paddle wheeler constructed in half a century when built in 1955. This near perfect model of the original sternwheeler, before its later addtions, is intricately detailed in resin and metal and arrives in a commemorative box with original poster art and stained-wood base with metal custom plaque. With its free moving wheel and fine attention to detail, our reproduction of the Mark Twain is a fitting tribute to the enduring appeal of this Frontierland centerpiece, which still plies the waters of the Rivers of America today and remains a continuing reminder of one man's dream come true. Riverboat 7 1/2'' H x 4 1/2'' W x 16'' L. Base 1'' H x 7'' W x 18 3/4'' L. Resin and metal. Wood base. Imported. Certificate of Authenticity. Limited Edition of 750

    Click that link and check out the interactive zoom feature. The detail on this item is ridiculously amazing!

    Too bad I don't have $400 to blow!

    Pretty awsome looking, and indeed, they did model the boat as it looked in 1955--the most obvious detail being the rear companionways (or "staircases") which are much closer to the center of the boat than they are today.

    An outstanding piece. But it doesn't look like is currently available.

    Strange! When I posted this, the item was in-stock and available to purchase. I wonder what happened!

    Now, if they made Disneyland Railroad engine replicas this accurately...

    It looks very nice, but I still find it amusing that rather than promot YOAMD they still linger on the 50th for the promotion.

    What a stunner! . . . . with a stunning price tag to boot.

    I love it, but it's not in the budget.

    That looks beautiful!

    For now, I'm just saving up for my Olszewski Sleeping Beauty Castle...lol



    I wish they had more Disneyland stuff on that website...when the 50th started, it was wonderful! I so wanted this jewelry box that had my avatar on it...it was so pretty. It sold out very fast, and I've never been able to locate it since

    Sold out already?

    Man... my daughter would love this!! She piloted the Twain when she worked at Disneyland a few years ago, and to this day calls that "her boat." To bad her father bought her a used car for her wedding present instead.

    Very nice, but I am sure this will be one of those available in the outlet for a lower price some time in the future.

    If they would have had it in stock, I might have picked this one up for sure. I'm so looking forward to its return to the ROA.

    Say, what happened to the Mark Twain replica!? It's no longer on Disneyshopping.com. Was it insanely popular, clogging the server with orders? Was it an accidental item listing that needed to be removed? Hmmm . . .

    Did you guys know that "Mark Twain" means "Safe Water" and that the water is 2 Fathoms (12 Feet Deep)? Samuel Clemens was a Steamboat pilot early in his life and eventually made "Mark Twain" his Pen Name.

    I heard this last night and wanted to share it with you all since we are on the topic of the Mark Twain Steamboat.
