There’s been a lot happening over at Epcot‘s American Adventure lately. Preparations are on-going for the Regal Eagle Smokehouse, and the Candlelight Processional has been wowing audiences for weeks now as Epcot’s International Festival of the Holidays continues.
And now a new addition to the American Adventure pavilion offers something of a different persuasion: Art of Disney.
As you may have guessed, the beautiful store celebrates the art of Disney, showcasing drawings, figurines, and limited edition prints that are available for purchase.
Sketches feature Wendy from Peter Pan, but if you look at the labels, you’ll spot some other familiar Disney names.
One wall is covered with some beautiful and unique Disney art pieces. We love the retro-themed Journey Into Imagination piece on the far right.
There are also some unique figurines, including this Mickey fan as he takes in some iconic Disney sights and activities (we spot him riding Disneyland’s Matterhorn on the right and holding an infamous Disney churro on the left).
There’s also some pieces in the “Gallery of Light” which feature dioramas of some classic scenes from Disney films.
There’s a great diversity in the offerings — including pieces closer to fine art that still have the Disney touch.
And this one definitely invokes Mary Poppins in the United Kingdom pavilion! The kites, carousel horse, and weather vane are all iconic images from the classic film. (Can we get some details about the Mary Poppins attraction coming to the U.K. pavilion next, please?!)
The store also provides guests with a bit of history on Disney artists, including what the process looked like in the very beginning.
Even if you’re not planning to buy anything, it’s worth stopping in to check out these pieces of history and getting a better insight into the life and work of Walt Disney!
On this board, you can even take a peek at some vintage posters for classic Disney films like Dumbo and Bambi!
