John Stamos owns pieces of Disney history

This actor is passionate about music, performing alongside the Beach Boys and during the sitcom, Full House. He also has a love for all things Disney, including some of the theme park props. 

According to Virtual Globe-Trotting, “in 2000, actor John Stamos was the winning eBay bidder for the pictured Disneyland sign which stood at the entrance of the theme park from 1989-99.” 

This wouldn’t be the only time he showed off some memorabilia. According to Inside the Magic, he is also the owner of an audio-animatronic head from the iconic ride, Pirates of the Caribbean. For several projects, this actor also appeared in Disney’s theme parks. 

John Stamos appeared in the ‘House Meets the Mouse’ episodes for ‘Full House’

This actor traveled to Orlando for two episodes of this sitcom, along with the other Full House cast members. For the “House Meets the Mouse” episodes, his character, Uncle Jesse performed in front of Cinderella’s Castle in Magic Kingdom. 

Along with Joey, this character also appeared in an underwater radio broadcast. However, this wouldn’t be the only time Stamos traveled to Walt Disney World. In mentoring American Idol contestants, this actor had the opportunity to travel to the amusement park. 

“I grew up near Disneyland in California, just to go through those gates and put the rest of the world out and just be in the middle of all this, there’s nothing like it,” Stamos said during an interview with Parade.
