Times are tough in Toontown…
Opening tomorrow (12/3) in Winter Garden (near Orlando) Florida is the Theme Park Connection, a pawn shop specializing in buying or selling authentic Walt Disney memorabilia, from costumes from the Haunted Mansion to signs from the Splash Mountain ride. According to Click Orlando:
The store is not affiliated with Disney, but it offers Disney employees the chance to turn in their costumes and collectibles for cash. Mark Pianko, the store owner, told our sister station Local 6, “No one else is doing it. We’re the only place I know that’s offering people cash to bring in Disney theme park items.” People have referred to the Winter Garden store as “the world’s largest Disney pawn shop.”
