What do you collect? As a Disney fan, I’ve collected a variety of Disneyana over my career. As a kid I started with visors and mini-license plates with my name on it (that turned out to be a small collection). As a teenager, I started to collect Coffee Mugs and watches. Then as an adult I’ve collected ephemera, books, and, of course, pins. I’ve just scratched the surface of what is collectible as a Disney fan and exploring everyone else’s obsessions is part of what makes being a Disney fan so enjoyable.
The story on where this plate came from has been debated, but I’ll
relate it as accurately as I can. Disney released this plate to
announce the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971, and as I understand
it they sold this plate at the WDW Preview Center. It subsequently had
to be pulled from the shelves because it apparently was a little too
close to the actual Florida 1970-71 license plate.
There’s lots more already and it looks like Ryan is building a great foundation for a wonderful new Disney Blog.
