Rare Disney Parks items sold at auction

    A vehicle from Walt Disney World’s Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, a Skyway gondola and an Autopia car from Disneyland were just a few items of a collection of about 45,000 items that were available in a unique Disney auction.

    The auction was held at the Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills, California and the collection belongs to Scott Rummel, a voice actor from Orange County.

    The buggy from Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride sold for $87,000. The ride, which opened at Disney World in 1971, was one of the most popular attractions in the park.

    “To say this is a rare piece would be a massive understatement,” the website says. “With a limited number of these vehicles ever made to begin with – only a handful ever made it to market. This is one of those rare pieces from Walt Disney World.”

    The gondola sold for $162,000. According to the auction’s website, it is one of “the rarest Disney attraction vehicles to exist” and “everything on it is original.”

    The Skyway gondola arrived at Disneyland in 1965, where it carried visitors across the park for several decades. It was also likely used at Disney World for several years.

    “Making this piece even more special is the fact that the lights have been rewired to be functional!” the website says.
