Late last year Disney fans were horrified to learn that the Buzzy animatronic from the long-closed Cranium Command attraction had been stolen by a nefarious individual, who reportedly was a former Disney employee and used their former access to make off with the piece of Disney history.
And though Buzzy's story hasn't quite come to a satisfying conclusion just yet, a reported suspect in the Buzzy investigation was actually found to have stolen several items from the Haunted Mansion attraction, and had been selling them illegally to fans online, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
And unfortunately, though this individual was arrested, it looks like a dangerous trend may have started, as even more items have been reported stolen from Walt Disney World as recently as this month, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
Pieces of Space Mountain and Peter Pan's Flight have been reported missing
According to the report from the Orlando Sentinel above, last week a Disney employee noticed a set of sails from Peter Pan’s Flight had been taken from a storage shed behind Epcot’s Test Track ride. The same employee then noticed, upon closer inspection, that the sails were not the only items missing, as a “shell” and three seats from Space Mountain were also missing from the storage area.
Walt Disney World has officially listed these items as missing, and is valuing the total worth of all the pieces at $20,000, according to the report.
