This past October 1st, $20,000 worth of attraction pieces went missing from a storage location behind Test Track in Epcot.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, a Disney Cast Member was doing inventory counts when he realized something was gone. When he went to look more into it he realized a set of sails used in Peter Pan’s Flight, a shell and three seats from Space Mountain were missing.
The materials attendant contacted the planning manager who notified the Orange County Sheriff’s Office the following day.
“None of the items taken have unique markings or serial items” said the report.
How the burglary occurred is still a mystery since the items were locked in a storage and there was fencing surrounded the shed.
Disney has declined to make any comments about it, calling it a law enforcement issue.
We are aware the black market for rare Disney props is a lucrative one, just earlier this year a similar case was investigated when a former cast member and his cousin stole items from the Haunted Mansion.
