posted on October 29th, 2012 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


The holidays are quickly approaching and everyone’s schedule is starting to get a little bit busier, so here is quick snapshot at some of the events, product releases and debuts taking place over the next month.

Disneyland Resort's Matterhorn Bobsleds Artwork by Jeff Granito

On November 10, I invite you to immerse yourself in the magic of Fantasyland with new artwork from Disney Parks created by Imagineers Brian Crosby, Jim Crouch and Jeremy Fulton, along with Disney-inspired artists Steve Adams, Jody Daily, Jeff Granito and George Scribner.

Tip: Artists will be appearing at The Disney Gallery in Disneyland park, November 10 from 9-11 a.m.

Katie Kelly to Debut 'Sleepy Hollow' Artwork at Disneyland Resort

On November 18, local artist Katie Kelly will debut her latest piece titled, “Sleepy Hollow,” among other enchanting releases from her collection.

Tip: Katie will appear at the Disneyana Shop in Disneyland park, November 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Peter Pan Sculpture by Jim Shore, Making an Appearance at Disneyland Resort in the Coming Months

This next release will make your heart soar, as you join Peter Pan and Tinker Bell aboard a fanciful pirate galleon destined for Never Land. Stylized with Jim Shore’s distinctive patterning and with the appearance of carved wood, this piece will evoke pixie dust memories of your flight on the famed Fantasyland attraction. Jim will be making special appearances at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts in the coming months, as we celebrate the debut of the Disney Theme Park Exclusive piece, “Peter Pan’s Flight,” as well as other pieces from his holiday collection. Unable to attend the event? A limited number of pieces are currently available to purchase through Walt Disney Event Services and via ArtofDisneyParks.com.

Tip: Jim will be appearing at the Walt Disney World Resort, November 23–25 and at the Disneyland Resort, December 1–2.

Haunted Mansion Artwork by Larry Dotson

From November 27–29, renowned artist Larry Dotson will return once again as part of a special artist showcase taking place in The Disney Gallery at Disneyland park.

Tip: Look for Larry beginning at noon each day.

Holiday Dolls from Precious Moments Doll Maker Linda Rick

Last but certainly not least is one of our favorite Precious Moments Doll Makers, Linda Rick, whose new holiday collection of dolls can be described in one word: dazzling.

Tip: Linda will appear November 30 – December 2, from noon to 10 p.m. each day at World of Disney Store in the Downtown Disney District, and again December 14-16 from noon to 10 p.m. each day at the Disneyana Shop in Disneyland park.

I don’t know about you, but I’m exhausted thinking about all of these. So don’t forget to mark your calendars, so you don’t miss out. Details on each of these are available now on www.ArtofDisneyParks.com.

Holy Moly! I want that Matterhorn Bobsleds print! That is amazing and would look great next to my original poster. I saw that it will be available but when? Thanks so much.

for the precious moments dolls who is it in the back row second from the right? I can’t figure that one out. I have back row from the left Mulan, Jasmin, Rapunzel, Aurora, Tiana, mystery doll, and Cinderella. And front row from the left Pocahontas, Snow White, Tinkerbell, Belle, and Ariel. is it a prince maybe?

 

Michelle Harker on October 30th, 2012 at 2:00 pm

Jaime, it is in fact a prince, you are correct. I believe that the Prince and Cinderella will be sold as a set.

We love Larry Dotson! We had the pleasure of meeting him at Disney’s Hollywood Studios last year. He was such a nice gentleman and was kind enough to help us decide on which of his many beautiful pieces to buy. His piece of Cinderella Castle during Wishes is by far my favorite.

I forgot to call Disney DelivEARS on November 10th, but I just finished my call with them. They still have a few of the Matterhorn Bobsleds 11″x17″ lithos left by Jeff Granito, so I ordered one. It should arrive in about 10 days due to Thanksgiving. I know what I’m thankful for even before it arrives!
