Disney Vacation Club on eBay - or going Crazy!
|DisneyDad November 2012|
The original logo for the Disney Vacation Club resort was an oval with 3 snow-capped mountains, ocean waves and palm trees with a Mickey Icon sun rising behind the mountains. Once Disney's Vero Beach Resort became a DVC resort, the Disney Vacation Club Resort was renamed Disney's Old Key West Resort and the logo dropped one mountain. (Never did know where that mountain went!) The two mountain logo remained until Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas, Ko Olina, Hawai`i joined the DVC family of resorts and the logo became a world globe with Mouse Ears.

Of course it didn't stop there.
I also found a 3" white oval button similar to all the give-away buttons you see in the parks. This one has the original 3-mountain logo also. Got to have it.... Bid..... Bid.... Bid. And for only $11.02 plus $2.50 shipping I own a button - that DVC gave away for free. Of course they don't give this one away any more. I put this one on the wall of my cubical at work. It's next to my Growing Up Disney button (Talk to Amy if you want one of those. Don't know if she still has any.) and my "Audrey" button with the pink stork (We were given these to tell us Tink's name was when she was born. Amy would not tell us ahead of time.)

Of course it didn't stop there...
If you stay on eBay long enough you will find something you really want. Bid...Bid... higher... Higher... HIGHER.... BID!!! and you win the prize. This time I found a Disney Vacation Club sign - the 2 mountain sign. It was a prototype of the signs used at Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort. It's a large, heavy, solid wooden sign just over 2 feet across. Of course I paid WAY too much. I won't say how much (Mom might read this) but it cost $18.00 just to ship it to me. Cost was not important. I have THE sign.

Where would you hang a sign? I'm not sure where it will end up, but I like it a lot. Just got to stay off of eBay. Of course I bought some other Disney items and still bidding on some. But those are for another post.
