Vintage Disneyland concept map sells at auction for $708000

Hand-Drawn Disney Map Sets Auction Record

Mickey Mouse and his friends celebrate the 60th anniversary of Disneyland Park during a ceremony at Sleeping Beauty Castle in Anaheim, California.

That's why its no surprise that someone spent $708,000 on a hand-drawn map of Disneyland in California, conceived by none other than the MickeyMaster himself, Walt Disney. However, it is still thought to be the most expensive Disney map ever sold.

The original colour map of Disneyland has been sold at auction for over €600,000.

The weekend before Walt and Co. pitched the park to all the major television networks (ABC, of course, wound up biting), he and friend/artist Herb Ryman holed up for the weekend as Ryman translated Disney's ideas into a physical map of the park.

On Sunday, the bidding for the map started at $500,000 with an expected winning price of $700,000 to $900,000. "I kept it for history's sake, I kept it for Walt's artistic stake, [sic] I kept it because it was the first thing to show and display...what a theme park would look like", said Curran, according to the BBC. Curran was present at the opening of Disneyland and would go on to work there, driving visitors around the park in Autopia vehicles.

Utah resident and Disney collector Ron Clark owned the map for more than 40 years and dreamed of it being returned to Disneyland.
