The Art of SHAG comes to Walt Disney World

31 Jan

When I read on the Disney Parks Blog that Josh Agle, better known as SHAG, would be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time to sign deluxe prints of the 40th Anniversary Map I knew that I had to be there!

I got to Uptown Jewelers at around 10:00 am and found myself sixth in line to purchase the print to be signed by SHAG.  It was really exciting!

I wanted to take this bad boy home with me!!!

The confectionery was sending over samples of goodies, and some of the citizens of Main Street USA came by to offer a visit. The wait was made to be enjoyable thanks to the humor of Fire Chief Smokey Miller…

At 11:00 am we were able to buy our items to be signed. There were prints, Haunted Mansion decanters and glasses, and Haunted Mansion aluminum water bottles available.

Then it was time…but just as SHAG was about to begin signing the good Fire Chief had a surprise! He joined the Dapper Dans in a serenade of “Grim Grinning Ghosts” for SHAG!

The Print itself features the icons and resorts that were present as Walt Disney World opened 40 years ago. From the Polynesian to water skiing to the sky buckets…it’s all there!!!! And to top it off, he was a super cool guy who graciously signed and spent time with each of us.

It was definitely an experience that I won’t soon forget!!!

It’s all about the Details…

23 Nov

While taking in all of the details is often overwhelming, I was taken back by the simple decorations of Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom!

I love how these decorations stay authentic to the period of Liberty Square through the use of materials, and how even the smallest details add so much to the overall look and feel of the area!!!

These garlands hang from the light posts throughout Liberty Square.

If you look closely at the garland, you'll find these little guys!

I love how they use fruit in the decorations around the Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square!

Don't forget to take your picture at the sleigh just outside of the the Christmas Shoppe!!!
