How You Can Score RARE Items from the Opening Day of Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

Disney World often releases unique merchandise, but the stuff we’re talking about today scores very high on the unique scale.


These items are VERY special since they’ve got ties to the history of Disney World and a Disney legend himself!

Former Disney Imagineer Joe Rohde has shared that he will be doing a bit of spring cleaning as he auctions off special Disney memorabilia. Rohde held a virtual garage sale at the end of last year, and now, a friend of his will be auctioning off more items on eBay for fans to bid on!
