Department 56 Disney Parks Village


A Bit of History - This collection was started by Department 56 in 1994. The original pieces were Mickey's Christmas Carol (2), The Fire Station, The Antique Shops (I and II), The Olde World Gate, Mickey and Minnie, and the Park Family. The Silver Smith's Shop and Tinker Bell's Treasures were introduced in 1996, just as the entire set was retired; thus leading to thier relative scarcity. Department 56 no longer has any marketing arrangements with Disney.

Pieces sold at the Disney theme parks have a special Disney stamp on the bottom. These specially stamped pieces have been known to command higher prices than unstamped pieces.
