Did you know that Walt Disney had a private apartment above the firehouse in Disneyland? As a prize at an Annual Passholder Event in 1995, we won dinner in that apartment which has been preserved since Walt's passing in 1966.

In the 1980's, there was a Disneyana club called "The Mouse Club" that was started by some fans in the SF Bay area. It was similar to The National Fantasy Fan Club and they had conventions near Disneyland twice a year. I don't think I ever heard the whole story about how the logo was created, but the upshot was that Disney wouldn't let them use an image of Mickey for the club logo. But the couple that ran the club were friends with Disney animator Ward Kimball, who created this Unknown Mouse mascot for their logo. I believe it was patterned after a cheezy stand-up comedian called The Unknown Comic who used to appear on "The Gong Show" in the 1970's. It's a nice cloisonne' pendant on a chain necklace. From our personal collection, its a truly rare piece of Disneyana history.
