Which event are you looking forward to?


  • Will Disney be releasing on July 23rd the new Dooney & Bourke Beauty and the Beast purse?

  • Just a quick update, David E. Doss, will not be appearing July 6 – 9, 2016 due to unforeseen circumstances.

  • Is there a way to order a print online or over the phone? I would love to have the Fort Wilderness print. Thanks.

    • Hi Annabel! I would inquire with the Merchandise Guest Services team to see if they can assist you with ordering one.

  • This is an absolute must for us, I need information as to where I can purchase the Mickey and Minnie camping print. We will not be at the Kingdom until August and I know how fast certain items can be gone. Thank you for any assistance.

    • David Doss, who did the Fort Wilderness piece is at Art of Disney the next couple of days, July 6 – 9. Hopefully our Disney Merchandise Guest Services can assist with your request. Sometimes these prints will continue to live in locations, so I’m pretty sure you can find one.

  • The “Learn More” link by Greg McCullough brings up Sydney Hanson instead of Greg.

    • Thanks for the feedback William. I’ll see if they can switch that out.
