Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on July 26th, 2013 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


Robert Olszewski fans and collectors of the Walt Disney World Resort Main Street, U.S.A., collection take note, because the last piece to complete your series is debuting this August.

“

Some of you may have seen Jennifer Fickley-Baker’s recent post about fan-favorite Casey, who stands proudly in front of Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A., at Magic Kingdom Park. This beloved restaurant pays homage to the National Pastime of Baseball and serves up American cuisine like hot dogs, fries, corn dog nuggets, chili and more. Many of you may have even noticed that during your stay you can also enjoy the accompaniment of classic tunes by some of our extremely talented pianists.

It’s no wonder Miniaturist Robert Olszewski saved such a treasured location for his last building in the Main Street, U.S.A., series. Casey’s Corner will be available for $395, plus tax. Please note a limited number of sculptures will be available for the release.

“

So how can you make this piece your own? It’s easy! Robert Olszewski will be on hand for a special appearance and signing for the debut of this new piece August 23 from 4 – 6 p.m. at Uptown Jewelers in Magic Kingdom Park and on August 24 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 – 6 p.m. at Art of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace.

Not able to make it? The Casey’s Corner sculpture will be available to pre-purchase via Disney Event Services at 407-827-7600, Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m, beginning July 29. All orders must be placed with Disney Event Services no later than Thursday, August 22 at 12 p.m. Tip: Pre-purchased pieces will be signed by the artist.

This piece is really amazing, but I’m wondering is the price stated correct? I just went to disneystore and most Main Street pieces don’t appear to be that much usually. The Mr. Toad/Alice Ride is comparable with the price stated for Casey’s, but atleast Mr. Toad/Alice come with interchangable scenes.

Hey Jason! I doubled checked with the team and that indeed is the correct price. I will tell you a quick fun fact about the piece that I found out. There is a piece where you can actually take a portion of the roof off and to your suprise you will find a sculpted Mickey and Minnie inside.

I have a question, can we have other pieces signed the day of the event? I collect the light boxes and would love to have him sign one.

Jason – yes, that is correct – The pieces used to be a bit cheaper, around $275-$300 for the larger pieces, $245 for the smaller but the last two pieces jumped a lot to the current price – I have every one of them so I have seen the prices jump over the years. So, I am excited to finally be done and once the platform (if it ever gets done, been delayed for over a year) gets released, I can finally display my Main Street like it should be displayed.
