(Disneyland, 1965) This one-of-a-kind, hand-painted microphone shield was first used at the Carnation Plaza Gardens by visiting band leaders. However, it was brought over to the Disneyland Hotel on July 17th, 1965 to be used on the microphone stand for the Tencennial cast banquet. As seen in the picture that comes as part of the display, Walt spoke at the banquet, relaying his past stories and future hope for his beloved theme park. The photo shows Walt's hand actually on this shield. The custom display includes a duplicate microphone on a facsimile stand. The microphone switch activates a player in the stand that plays a cd recording of Walt's comments actually made at the Banquet. The shield measures 5.5"x4.5" on the 65" tall stand. In very good condition, this is an unbelievably rare item, actually handled by Walt, and presented perfectly for display.
