Danger...DANGER! New Disney Collectors Warehouse!

Oh my. I think I need to add another day to our April visit just for this! From the Orlando Sentinel:

Marc Pianko is up to his eyeballs in mouse ears.

After more than a decade of gathering Disney-related memorabilia, souvenirs, clothing and theme-park props, the Windermere man's expansive collection spilled from his house and filled five storage sheds.

"The craziest stuff was in there, but no one could see it," Pianko said.

The former Walt Disney World employee has changed that, expanding his online-auction business called Theme Park Connection to include a new 4,000-square-foot store in Winter Garden, about 15 miles north of Disney World. It contains an estimated 250,000 items for sale.

Full article here

Here's a link to his website as well, which announces the grand opening this weekend:

Any locals have the inside scoop on this place? I'm dying to see it.

Jeff, I have a plan. You tell me what you want. Then when we are there in January I will get it for you and mail it to you. After all, Joe can not be upset if something just "happens" to arrive in the mail for you. And I am sure if I tell MrHub we are going for you he will not mind going. Then of course if I "just happen" to see something I want it would be silly not to buy it. Looks like a win win situation to me!

Lol OH NO! I have to join the bandwagon here and I think this place might be too dangerous for you. I like Scrappys way of thinking. It is like a super stealth secret mission.
