A new exhibit opened in the Disney Gallery on Saturday, January 29: Magic on the Water: The Art of the Happiest Fleet on Earth.

Come aboard for a retrospective that’s sure to set sail a sea of memories – and prepare you for an ocean of new ones.”
Some of the artwork is available as “Art on Demand.”
