One of the world's most avid collections of Disneyland memorabilia is ready to let go of all its treasured relics.

Richard Kraft, a Hollywood agent and producer, is auctioning off his extensive collection of Disneyland's past memorabilia.

His collection of 750 posters, concept drawings, toys, art and pieces of ancient attractions, has called his home in Southern California, Kraftland, and even "The happiest place in Encino."

Now the collection is showing like that's from Disneyland! & # 39; at Sherman Oaks California, before they are auctioned off for the best bidders to participate in the house of & # 39; The Happiest Place on Earth & # 39;

Kraft started his collection in 1993, after the death of his older brother David, who had Chrohn's disease.

His parents always took the brothers, who grew up a few hours north of Disneyland, to the park when David was healthy.

After his death, 25 years ago, Kraft returned to the theme park of his childhood, which only brought back great memories of his late brother.

"These were the same sidewalks that I walked as a child with my brother," Kraft told CNN.

"I'm not satisfied with a scrapbook or a little pennant: I really had to have pieces from the park," says Kraft, who admits, "I'm a bit obsessive."

When he found out about an exhibition of the Disneyland travel posters, he made his first offer on a Tomorrowland Autopia poster and won.

Since then, he has been hooked.

For 25 years, his collection grew to include six animated dolls & # 39; It & # 39; s A Small World & # 39; of the famous rise and hand-painted Haunted Mansion stretch portraits.

It has a 40-foot marine snake from the Submarine Voyage, a 38-foot Davy Crockett Explorer Canoe and a 16-foot tall neon sign from the top of the Disneyland Hotel.

The most expensive piece of the collection is the carriage ride & # 39; Dumbo & # 39; that once rose above his living room.

That was bought by a boat for $ 35,000 at an auction.

Kraft is now selling his collection in part to Daisy, his four-year-old daughter.

She was born with Coffin-Siris Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that causes developmental delays and physical abnormalities.

Kraft says part of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Coffin-Siris Foundation and the CHIME Institute, which works with schools that specialize in bringing together children with special needs.

However, he agreed to sell his beloved collection on the condition that it be shown for the first time during a month for the public to see it.

Van Eaton Galleries co-owner Mike Van Eaton says this is "one of the most incredible private collections I've ever seen" and, by far, the largest auction of Disney collectibles he has ever received.

"You do not see a lot of people with, say, a Space Mountain car in your backyard, or a 40-foot-long marine snake, for that matter, next to your pool." It's the kind of collection you'll see once in life, "said Van Eaton.

Kraft has also purchased items at past Van Eaton auctions, and especially looked for Mike when he made the decision to sell.
