Collecting Spotlight: Disneyana
Disneyana refers to a wide variety of Walt Disney Company produced and licensed memorabilia, including Disney toys and games, dolls and figurines, collectible animation cels and artwork, Walt Disney World and Disneyland theme park souvenirs, jewelry, apparel and decor. The Disneyana fanbase is also one of the most dedicated and passionate groups of collectors in the world. Used informally by Disney memorabilia collectors in the 1960s, the term “Disneyana” became the official term in 1974, when Cecil Munsey published his book Disneyana: Walt Disney Collectibles. Today, Disneyana collectors gather from across the globe to attend events and conventions, such as the Official Disneyana Convention and the D23 Expo, which is organized by the official Walt Disney Fan Club.
Disneyana enthusiasts collect Disney memorabilia from across the company’s long history, from classic films like Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, Bambi and Sleeping Beauty to modern Disney and Pixar films like Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Frozen. One thing that never changes is their love for the classic Disney characters: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Pluto and Goofy. With the acquisition of a number of new studios and production companies in the 2000s, such as the Muppets, Marvel Studios and the Star Wars franchise, it looks like Disney’s collector base will only continue to grow.
