    Who wouldn't want your very own Rock 'N Roller coaster in the backyard? Or an elevator in your house that drops 13 stories, oh wait...scratch that...

    Well, if you've ever dreamed of owning a little piece of Disney World roller coaster fun, here's your chance. Just remember...the key word is "little" as this particular coaster measures only 97x19x19...inches. This may however explain the modest $1,660 price tag on eBay.

    According to the seller, the wooden coaster was used during the second annual Walt Disney World Teddy Bear Convention back in the 1990s. (Ok, raise your hands if you knew a Teddy Bear Convention even existed at WDW, much less an annual one!)

    You can view the listing on ebay here, complete with photos and even a YouTube video that shows the coaster in action. It's pretty tame...we might even get Keith, Wendy and Tink on this one!

    Yep. My DW is a doll and teddy bear collector and she thought about going down to it many a time. Never did it and now they are no more. Too bad.

    I don't know what you mean









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
