Disneyland Selling Nostalgic Pirates of the Caribbean Piece
Collectors, brace yourselves because an elaborate part of Disney history is now for sale, though it comes at a steep price. Disneyland is selling a nostalgic Pirates of the Caribbean piece at the Disneyana Art Store on Main Street, U.S.A.
A vast majority of Disney fans are collectors of some sort. Popular collectibles range from more mildly priced items such as Funko Pops or Loungefly bags to more expensive merchandise like art pieces or historical items.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. While some may think that certain collectibles are far too expensive, others may find the cost inconsequential due to the joy of owning the item and seeing it displayed.
Pirates of the Caribbean
A unique piece of Disney history is waiting for the right person to snap it up! Pirates of the Caribbean is one of Disneyland’s most iconic rides. The attraction opened in New Orleans Square in 1967 and has been a hit ever since.
The storytelling, coupled with the immersive nature of the experience, makes it one of the most sought-after attractions in the Park. The ride became even more famous after the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies in 2003, starring Johnny Depp as the beloved Jack Sparrow.
Nostalgic Piece of Art
Hidden within a vault in the Disneyana store, which houses some incredible artwork, is an item called the “Pirates of the Caribbean Heritage Timeline.” The piece comes from a tree that was recently cut down in a renovation to the ride.
The tree was iconic, adding character to the queue, and many were sad to see it go. Those who want to bring home the magic can purchase the collectible, a cross-section of the tree that highlights memorable moments in Pirates’ history.
Surrounded by ornate carvings of treasure, the trunk was preserved by the Disneyland Urban Forestry Program. With visible rings, earth-tone colors, and gold highlights, it truly is a stunning item, but it comes at a price.
SFGATE shares that this magnificent piece of art is selling for a whopping $6500! There’s no doubt that somebody will find this Pirates’ treasure worth the cost, and when they do, they will own a piece of Disneyland history unlike any other!
