You can buy an authentic Disney roller coaster, but there’s a tiny catch

Are you the kind of person who loves Disney so much you can’t bear to be away? If so, now is your chance to bring home an authentic Disney roller coaster.

The ride is available on Ebay for the very low price of $1,660. The listing describes it as a "Vintage Wooden Motorized Roller Coaster, Former Disney World Display Working."

But before you click over and start bidding, here’s the catch: it’s actually a miniature roller coaster, designed for stuffed animals. Still, both the Ebay listing and the Orlando Sentinel report that it is authentic and was used during the "Walt Disney World Teddy Bear Convention" in the 1990s.

So, yes, for some people out there this might be kind of lame. But for true fans, this may actually be the last missing piece of that weird Disney shrine you’ve been building in the basement. Enjoy.
