What are the most valuable Disney vinyl records? Are they worth anything?
Let’s find out, shall we?
1. Hansel & Gretel
This vinyl record is an original soundtrack to the successful and timeless animated feature film Hansel & Gretel which was originally released on TV in the early 80s. Certain copies of this record go for considerable sums of money, as seen above.
2. Snow White & the Seven Dwarves
This is another one of those highly sought-after Disney records, though make sure you’ve got an original and not one of the 85th-anniversary reissues (pictured below) which, though ravishing in its sumptuous red hues, is not nearly as rare.
This is among the most prized pieces of music memorabilia in the biz – today, this film still has the power to shock and awe and will forever be remembered for its awesome visuals and immense soundtrack, featuring some of the prized Western composers of the last 500 years. Thus, it’s one of the best vinyl records for kids, ever!
4. Alice in Wonderland
This record and film should need no introduction, but you should know that the first pressings of this soundtrack are worth a considerable sum. Get checking that catalog number and make sure it’s in pristine condition.
5. The Silly Symphony Collection
More than the adventurous jungle cruise, this is a whole box set of Disney works whose great size and status can scarcely be ignored. These things retail at $400 brand new and have scarcely lost value over the years.
6. Music and Sound Effects for Pirates of the Caribbean
Who’d have known that the music and sound effects for the hit franchise Pirates of the Caribbean would garner such a following? This was released in very rare batches, hence why this has gone on to cost a pretty penny when put up for sale.
7. It’s a Small World
Disney’s ode to the small and microscopic is also worth a whole bunch, especially if you have the illustrated color booklet that was originally included with the LP upon its original release.
8. The Haunted Mansion
Who knew Disney could be so spooky? Just in time for Halloween, you can cop your own copy of Disney’s Haunted Mansion. Or, perhaps you already have a copy and fancy selling it so you can buy a costume for the festivities. Who’s to say?
9. Now You See Him, Now You Don’t
This absolute pittance of a film has a soundtrack and this soundtrack is worth a surprising amount for such an apocryphal and poorly-assembled patchwork of a piece of media, So, if you’ve got a copy, now’s the time to sell, sell, sell.
10. Frozen (Deluxe Edition)
Certain deluxe copies of this record have also been known to sell for incredible amounts considering the contents and the form of this piece of media.
So, there you have it! Hopefully, you have found what you were searching for here!
