Walt Disney's Daughter Called Phil Sears' Museum Contribution
"One of the Most Valuable Things Our Museum Can Offer to Our Visitors."

The late Diane Disney Miller left a lasting legacy with-- among other achievements-- The Walt Disney Family Museum.  Phil Sears is honored that a Walt Disney letter from his collection is a star exhibit at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  Diane Disney Miller said:

"This is such an important letter, and to be able to display the original, in my dad's hand, is, to me, one of the most valuable things our museum can offer to our visitors.  When I first discovered this letter I was so touched by it .. the very young Walt, practically penniless, living with his uncle and working out of his uncle's garage, but presenting himself as an established producer offering an opportunity to Mrs. Davis' little daughter.  I'm certain that the absurdity of his situation never occurred to him, just the possibilities that it presented.  He had confidence in his own ability, and had just persuaded his brother Roy to join with him.  This was the beginning of something wonderful."

You can see the letter in person at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco, or click HERE for a virtual view.

   Actual Piece of Haunted Mansion "Madame Leota" Film
Above:  Click for a closer view Above:  Typical film section shown enlarged

     "Goblins and ghoulies from last Halloween, awaken the spirits with your tamborine..."
For over fifty years that haunting incarnation has been an iconic part of Disney's Haunted Mansion attraction.  She may be only a head in a crystal ball, but Madame Leota is an image we never forget.  She's now a 21st century all-digital ghost, but there was a time when Leota's face was projected using 16mm film.  Here I'm happy to offer three frames of the actual film created for use in WDW's Haunted Mansion.  Each film section varies slightly (mainly her mouth movement and eyelids) and is attached to my 8.5" x 11" Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity Certificate.  Each section measures approximately 16mm x 23mm.   Worldwide shipping only $2.99 on this item no matter how many you buy!  Item # 7710, $29.95

Foolish Mortals we are!  We previously identified the image as Little Leota (same performer- Imagineer Leota Toombs- shot in the same setup) but we have since corrected our certificate to Madame Leota.  If you purchased this with the Little Leota certificate just email us for a corrected replacement certificate at no charge.

Disney Imagineering has masterfully employed the use of models to bring their attractions to life even before construction begins. These meticulously crafted models serve as a crucial tool in the design process, allowing Imagineers to visualize and refine every aspect of an attraction's layout, theming, and storytelling. From small-scale mock-ups to intricate, large-scale models, Imagineers use their keen eye for detail to create a tangible representation of their vision. Offered here is a piece of the Disney Imagineering model of Madame Leota's seance room, built during the creation of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion.  It is a miniature of the railing which surrounds the seance area, only feet from the "Doom Buggy" ride vehicles as they circle the room.  Created by a model maker at Walt Disney Imagineering (known as WED Enterprises back in the day), this rare remnant of the Haunted Mansion's creative process has been in the collection of Disney Legend Tony Baxter for decades.  Offered here is one section of the model railing measuring approximately 5.5" long.  Former Senior Vice President of Imagineering Tony Baxter has personally autographed the bottom of the model.  Also includes a Certificate of Authenticity personally signed by Tony Baxter, and a photograph of Tony with the piece.  Item # 8344D, $799

1960's Electric Disneyland Monorail Train by Schuco
Tested and Guaranteed to Run!
(clickable for a larger view)
The finest Disneyland toy ever produced! Beginning in 1961 the Schuco company manufactured this precision-made electric monorail train to the highest German standards.  Almost 15" long, these ELEVATED trains were produced for only a few short years and then production  closed forever. The finely crafted train was expensive by 1960s standards and few could afford them.  Not the cheap battery-operated "kids" monorails produced by Disney recently, but 18 volt DC powered electric train sets with variable speed in forward and reverse, with metal trim (just the way Imagineer Bob Gurr designed the full size originals)!  A transformer was not included with these sets (!) but the trains will run from any standard American 12 to 20 volt electric train transformer (I highly recommend the LGB 50081 transformer available on eBay for about $80).  

 This train has been tested and is guaranteed to run!
This monorail has been tuned up and runs really well. Add a transformer and this train is ready to go!  All the accessories are present (the red and black wires are modern replacements) and I have included a photocopy of the instructions and my own tip sheet for setting up your Schuco Monorail and making it run like a charm.  Box shows some wear and repair but with bright Matterhorn Mountain graphics.  An amazing Disneyland model train set, still ready to ride the rails after 60 years!
