Whatever happened to the Disneyland sign that stood at the Resort’s entrance between 1989-1999? Find out at this week’s Tiggerific Tuesday Disney Trivia!
The original Disneyland sign stood from 1959 to 1989, at which time it was replaced with the updated marquee above. When the Resort expanded, and construction began for its second park, Disney California Adventure, this plot of land was needed for development, and the sign was dismantled. Instead of storing or disposing the sign, however, Disneyland auctioned it off on eBay. Actor and Disneyland fan John Stamos won the bid and erected the giant D in the backyard of his home in the Santa Monica Mountains. According to Yesterland, the other side was purchased by superagent Richard Kraft, who eventually decided to take the giant D from the former Disneyland Hotel sign.
