There are plenty of beloved decorations and items that Disney Park Guests fantasize about owning when they visit both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.

Buckets filled with water from Pirates of the Caribbean, a tombstone from Haunted Mansion, or even a couch cushion as comfortable as those on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, are always dream items that Disney fans would love to own one day.

Recently, one Disney fan made their dreams come true at the Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills on Saturday. The fan bought an entire ride vehicle from Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride for a whopping $87,000. The buggy from the beloved attraction dates back to 1993 and was “professionally restored and repainted with added features like spinning wheels and working headlights,” according to the auction’s website.

“To say this is a rare piece would be a massive understatement,” the website says. “With a limited number of these vehicles ever made to begin with – only a handful ever made it to market. This is one of those rare pieces from Walt Disney World.”

Disneyland’s official description of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride reads:

Toad Rage

Enter the lavish English manor house known as Toad Hall and hop into a 2-person, open-air buggy. 

Skid past teetering stacks of books in the library and barrel through a fireplace—before hurtling into a formal dining room. Careen through a wall-sized window and race past a riverbank, narrowly missing a flock of sheep. 

While avoiding a platoon of policemen, crash through scaffolding, splatter a stack of pies, smash crates and ignite a fiery explosion—but look out for that train! 

Will you escape trial for your trail of destruction? Or is something even more devilish in store?
