Theme Park Connection specializes in buying or selling authentic Walt Disney memorabilia, from costumes from the Haunted Mansion to signs from the Splash Mountain ride.

The store is not affiliated with Disney, but it offers Disney employees the chance to turn in their costumes and collectibles for cash.

Mark Pianko, the store owner, told Local 6, "No one else is doing it. We're the only place I know that's offering people cash to bring in Disney of theme park items."

People have referred to the Winter Garden's store as "the world's largest Disney pawn shop." 

Theme Park Connection also offers the chance for any Disney fan to buy these one of kind collectibles.
