LOS ANGELES, CA.- Van Eaton Galleries, one of the world’s premier animation artwork and collectible galleries held the highly-anticipated “The Story of Disneyland” auction this weekend in Sherman Oaks, California. Bidders gathered each day under a tent, constructed specifically to hold the hundreds of anxious bidders who showed up for the two sessions, in hopes that they would take home a piece of Disneyland magic. Bidders from around the globe bid online and by phone in a fast and furious pace all day.

The collection which represented close to 1,000 pieces is said to be the largest and most historical collection ever to be offered. Many of the items up for bid exceeded pre-sale estimates including a Disneyland Enchanted Tiki Room Animatronic® Tiki Bird which sold for $153,400. Opening in 1963, the Enchanted Tiki Room was the first attraction to use Audio-Animatronic® characters in the park. The Pirates of the Caribbean remained a hit throughout the auction event with the Original Skeleton prop selling for $129,800 and the Pirates of the Caribbean E-Ticket Sign selling for $47,200.
