You can now bring a piece of the most magical place on Earth to your own not-so-enchanted home – and we’re not talking about souvenir towels.
eBay user superdupertoylover is selling an original Walt Disney World monorail car, the perfect gift for that extreme Mouseketeer in your life. While you will be hard pressed to find a spare monorail track for the vehicle, the seller has some other ideas for the colossal collectible.
“Some people have train cars in their back yard, imagine your own monorail guest room, or man cave. Mount it on a bus chassis and drive it around!! Turn it into your kids’ ultimate clubhouse,” superdupertoylover writes in his post. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a very serious piece of Disney history. The original price on a WDW monorail was $6,000,000.”
The monorail car is currently being auctioned for $169,000.00 and has yet to receive any bids, but is being watched by over a thousand users.
If you don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars lying around to spend on whims like this, the seller is also open to trades. Whoever ends up with the Mark IV train car will have the vehicle dropped at their door for free, complete with a trailer so the monorail can be easily moved.
The Mark IV trains have been operating at Walt Disney World since the park opened in 1971. Superdupertoylover says in his post that this car is from the original fleet of Disney monorails, and that, even after 44 years, the train piece is easily restorable to its original glory.
So grab your mouse ears, your child leashes and your magic wands, and climb aboard this Disney getaway without even leaving your home.
