Disney Collectables

Disney collectables are some of the most lucrative items the collecting world.

For Walt’s birthday this year, Funko released a Sleeping Beauty Castle Funko Pop with Walt Disney holding Mickey Mouse. Little was known about when and where this “parks exclusive” would be released due to the pandemic,

At midnight on December 5, 2020, the Funko was released. Many scrambled to get their hands on one but even with little notice word spread quickly and in just about an hour, the item was sold out. As of this post there is no info on whether more of these will be produced. Were you able to purchase on of these? Let us know in the comments section below.

By Candlelight

Due to the parks being unable to hold the Candlelight Processional this year, The Disney Company has posted last year’s ceremony of the semi-private event for us to enjoy featuring Neil Patrick Harris!

Returning the magic!

Sadly, the Disney Company laid off over 28,000 cast members (and counting) at Disneyland and Walt Disney World due to the pandemic. There have been many initiatives setup to help cast members and in this episode we talk about shifting our current Teamboat Willie fundraising efforts to help cast members in need.

We’ve setup our own food drive to try to help as many cast members as possible, One of the things we love about what Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County is doing is that for every dollar donated will provide the equivalent of 3 meals per person. That’s amazing! To help, you can click the image below to make a donation or help us out by sharing our donation page with your friends and family so that we can try to help as many cast members as possible.

Below are other resources you can use to help furloughed and recently laid off cast members.
