    Opening Day merchandise

    After losing an eBay auction for some WDW opening day stuff, I was wondering if anyone knows (other than eBay), where I might be able to find any? Everything from invitations, to tickets, etc. to add to my collection

    Thanks!!

    I have an opening day passport to EuroDisney as it was called back then. It was special to CMs only and eventhough I knew I probably wouldn't go I bought it anyway. I am trying to remember where it is.

    Little do people realize that the name of the company is still EuroDisney, only the park changed it's name

    When I get back from WDW I will find it and get a picture of it for you. I have to get my Dad to do it because I don't have the technology.

    Lou,

    You might want to check out http://www.philsears.com He mainly deals with Disneyland items, but has some great WDW items on there, too. He is reputable, and you can be put on his mailing list so you know when he has new items for sale. I like to just browse through there sometimes to see the interesting things he finds.

    Be prepared to spend some serious $$, though!

    Thanks, Lisa. I actually visit Phil's site often, and have purchased some great (yes, sometimes expensive items) from him. Very very reputable and high quality merchandise.

    Check local shops, too... you'll find stuff no matter what state you're in. Couple years ago, a local shop that specializes in WDW stuff had a pack of items from opening year for about $15. It included a map, brochure, contemporary hotel match book, receipt from the sale of *something* and a couple other items.

    I spent way too much that day... they had a LOT of park merch, even though they don't specialize in it.
