Disney Doodle: Mushu & Mulan Visit Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground

In this week’s Disney Doodle, a series in which we showcase a piece of art designed to show what a Disney character (or characters) may do if they had the opportunity to visit a park on their own. This week, designer Ashley Taylor has chosen Mulan and her sidekick Mushu.

“I love how theatrical Mushu’s introduction is when he first meets Mulan,” Ashley said. “So I thought he would be the perfect character to give an entertaining campfire story at Fort Wilderness.”

In the film, Mushu first reveals himself to Mulan after she says with despair that it will “take a miracle” for her to successfully pass herself off as a male soldier in army. She turns around to an enormous shadow of a dragon that appears flanked by raging flames.

When she asks who he is, he responds: “I am the guardian of lost souls. I am the powerful, the pleasurable, the indestructible Mushu!” – before he reveals that he’s really a much tinier dragon.

Comments

  • Not to quibble, but how could Mushu cast his big Legendary Dragon shadow if he’s standing -in front- of the fire? 😉

  • I always enjoy the Disney Doodles. Reading the post was just like watching the movie! Where could I learn more about campfires at Fort Wilderness? That sounds like a really cool experience!

  • The Disney Doodles are a Disney Parks Blog highlight for me. Ashley Taylor brings such life to so many beloved characters. I did, however, want to draw attention to the first sentence. It doesn’t seem to be a complete thought. You might want to string the first two sentences together to make it clearer to the reader: “In this week’s Disney Doodle, a series in which we showcase a piece of art designed to show what a Disney character (or characters) may do if they had the opportunity to visit a park on their own, designer Ashley Taylor has chosen Mulan and her sidekick Mushu.” With so many outdoor activities, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground would most certainly be the vacation destination of choice for Mulan and Mushu! Looking forward to another Doodle soon!
