Disneyana is a collector's term. The term was originally informal, until the publication of the book Disneyana: Walt Disney Collectibles made it popular. Walt Disney and his company introduced many comic characters to the world. Mickey Mouse first appeared in the short film "Steamboat Willie" in 1928. Collectors search for examples of the work of the Disney Studios and the many commercial products modeled after his characters, including Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck, and well-known films, like Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, the Toy Story series, and Frozen.
