Disney World Trash Can Listed on eBay for Nearly $22,000

It might seem odd to the casual visitor to Walt Disney World, but for many theme park fans, Disney’s trash cans are iconic. Are they memorable enough though, that you would pay nearly $22,000 to have one in your home? If you happen to be interested, we just came across a listing on eBay offering a trash can from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort for $21,850!

The eBay listing by darthmaul814, which includes free standard shipping, notes that the trash can does contain some wear and dents as it was used at the resort. The listing mentions that the trash can was used at Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto, which is entirely possible, however, this is the same design used all over Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.

Each Walt Disney World land within a theme park and resorts have their own unique trash can designs that help to immerse Guests into the theme of whatever area they are currently in, and this can from the Polynesian is no different. The tiki sculpture design and “Mahalo” saying on the can are certainly recognizable from Guests who regularly stay at the resort and those who just stop by for dinner or DOLE Whips.

This is not the first exclusive item from Walt Disney World spotted for sale online. Fans are always coming across interesting pieces of collectibles or memorabilia from Disney theme parks. Last year, we reported on an entire cabin from Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground that actually made it’s way onto Craigslist!

You never know what you might find whether you are browsing eBay, Craigslist, or thrift shops, especially if you are looking around close to the Orlando area. If you happen to be a Disney Cast Member, you can also check out Property Control, a section of Cast Connections, a Cast Member exclusive store that sells used items from Disney parks and resorts for very low prices, with everything from home decor items to dining sets, and more.

(I actually have a framed print I picked up there during my Disney College Program of the Disney Wonder. I’m not sure where it was displayed on the ship, but the back is labeled, “Disney Cruise Line” and it now hangs in my apartment, so you really never know what you might find!)
