Behind the Scenes: SHAG’s 40th Anniversary Art at Walt Disney World Resort

There’s no denying that SHAG is a talented artist – just ask the lines of guests who came out to meet him at Walt Disney World Resort for his 40th Anniversary product release. The question that we heard fans ask SHAG the most was “What inspiration did you use to create your 40th Anniversary artwork?”

While I could tell you his response, I thought it would be more fun for you to hear about SHAG’s inspirations from the artist himself…enjoy!

If you’re visiting Walt Disney World Resort and looking to take a closer look at SHAG’s latest collection, you can check it out at The Art of Disney in Downtown Disney Marketplace or at Uptown Jewelers in Magic Kingdom Park.


  • Being a guest artist with Disney has given me the opportunity to be friends with Josh. He is such an inspiration to me and is so down-to-earth! A true artist. Thanks Josh for sharing your amazing talent!!!

  • you can call into the store in the magic kingdom and order items directly from them.

  • Are Shag’s original works paintings? And if so, what medium does he use?

  • Jennifer Fickley-Baker: Only at Magic Kingdom or at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World.

    Will they be selling these products for awhile? I’m going in early October and I desperately want to get some of this stuff! I’m obsessed with all things 50’s themed.

  • Where can you find an updates and information about events like this artist signing? I follow the parks blogs on Facebook but I never even knew about this event 🙁

  • Hi, I was wondering where I could find the pillow ? Can we buy it online? My first time to Disney was in 1974 and remember the artwork he is talking about…also wish I could get the skyway poster :).

  • I went to the signing at Downtown Disney and it was worth the 12 hour drive to meet Shag. He was so great and his artwork is awesome! I hope they release the postcard set as larger prints in the future…looooove the Polynesian Resort card.

  • We’ll be there July 6
    Will Shag still be appearing at Uptown Jewelers in Magic Kingdom for a few days?
    Would love to get that print and get it signed!

  • This is groovy & far out!(I remember this type of cartoon growing up) Did he do the HoJo’s logo in Anaheim, CA next to Disneyland?
    I have to get a momento next time. 🙂

  • Where can we purchase these items? Will they be made available at Disneystore?

    • Only at Magic Kingdom or at Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World.
