I’ve put up a few unique Disney items for auction on eBay and have more lined up to list when I get some spare cycles. There’s one hand-crafted Mickey Mouse two page scrapbook layout designed by my talented wife and a collection of Year Of A Million Dreams merchandise including a unique 1st day collection from the opening of Toy Story Midway Mania! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

When you bid on these unique Disney Collectibles on eBay you get a real cool piece of Disney history and you help The Disney Blog at the same time. Thanks for bidding and good luck.

Buzz LightyearBuzz Lightyear’s dream of going “to infinity and beyond” will finally come true this weekend when Disney Parks and NASA send the 12-inch-tall action figure to space aboard Space Shuttle Discovery on mission STS-124 launching from Kennedy Space Center on May 31 at 5:02 p.m. ET (subject to schedule changes).

The launch coincides with the opening of Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s new “edu-tainment” program the “Space Ranger Education Series”. Disney, Pixar and NASA have teamed up to get school children excited about the sciences. The series, hosted at www.nasa.gov, will be available throughout 2008.

The folks at Disney are deservedly proud of this achievement. I’ve received this story from four separate sources at the Mouse House. It’s a pretty great program and hopefully will inspire many of today’s students to become tomorrow’s scientists.

A short video schools can use to highlight the program and the full press release is below the cut:
