As part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts, and in celebration of 50 years of Walt Disney World, Disney Imagineers have showcased mesmerizing illustrations, each inspired by some of their most magical memories. The exhibit is titled “Drawing on Inspiration: Celebrating 50 Years of Magic,” and can be found on a set of construction walls in the center of the park.
This first piece is from Imagineer Mike Quinn, featuring many park-exclusive characters, such as Figment, Orange Bird and the Country Bears.
Imagineer Xiao Qing Chen imagined Cinderella Castle as a pop-up book.
Imagineers Allie Wong and Stephanie Jazmines worked together on this piece celebrating all four parks. If you look under Spaceship Earth, you can see the Peach Boys from Food Rocks, a show that once called The Land pavilion home.
Family celebrations are what a Disney vacation is all about, and Imagineer Brittany Smith acknowledges that with her piece.
And finally, we have Imagineer Jessica Hillis translating a day at the Most Magical Place on Earth into a comic strip.
More from the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts:
- Clearly the most anticipated debut today was the release of the coveted Figment popcorn bucket. Fans of the little purple dragon descended upon EPCOT in droves this morning to try and get their own popcorn bucket, with 6-7 hour lines quoted just to do so.
- We have some photos of “Chalk Full of Characters,” where guests are encouraged to find charming chalk drawings of Disney characters through the pavilions, some more obvious than others, as they explore World Showcase.
- Check out our full report on the merchandise available for the Festival of the Arts.
