    Well, I believe that they keep them. They always keep most of their attractions, and other parts. They are sometimes sold i believe. My friend owns a part from the Mr.Toad ride. You may be able to search some things on Ebay. I don't think Disney personally sells it to Ebay, because they would do better off by selling it on their own. Hope that helps! And welcome to the DWT family!

    I think they keep most of them. They did sell one of the pieces of the old monorail on Ebay. Wouldn't that be awesome to own?

    While Disney does actually keep the AAs, they are sometimes in relatively poor shape on the outside, but have usable parts inside, and may be dismantled, refurbed, etc.
