And that includes buying Disney merchandise that comes directly from historic pieces of the park itself.

When trees had to be removed around the famous Pirates of the Caribbean boat ride in Disneyland, California, Disney decided to turn the bark into special edition collector’s items that fans were able to purchase at Disney’s annual fan club convention, D23.

A timeline of the classic ride was created from one log, with the tree rings representing different years and milestones the ride has accrued over its useful life. Of these, a total of 45 were made.

The second memento is a classic looking plague using the wood of the trees with signage and thematic elements of the ride. Four of these were made.

The items were sold on Sunday, September 11 through the Disneyland Resort galleries at the D23 expo, a convention that draws thousands of fans to California every year.

Disney will also donate $25,000 to TreePeople, a charitable initiative that helps plant and care for trees throughout Southern California.

Pirates of the Caribbean originally opened in the park in 1967. It was the inspiration and starting point for the beloved film series of the same name starring Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.
