    Hi! Where can I get a color pencil portrait (not a caricature) done? We visited WDW in 1979 when I was 5 and my parents had one done of me there and we are going in a few weeks and my daughter is 5 and I’d love to have one done of her. Thank you!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tammy! My son and I stayed at Disney’s Beach Club Resort in 2016 where I first saw the portrait artist in the lobby. Her incredibly realistic work and gorgeous palettes have stayed with me long after that visit ended!

    You can visit Disney’s Beach Club Resort to find the portrait artist, Marina Kalashnikova, and her easels in the back of the lobby. You can also see some of her portfolio and pricing on her facebook page under the url facebook.com/marinaakalashnikova to help you decide if this type of portrait is right for your family. I really don’t think you will be disappointed! While you submit your photo for the artwork to be completed, you may also want to consider the silhouette artists found around Walt Disney World Resort. These tiny black and white side portraits are incredibly affordable with a matching oval frame and are the perfect addition to your walls while your kids are small. I simply adore my two frames hanging in my foyer. It's a touch of magic each day when I see them.

    Should you miss Ms. Kalashnikova while you are there, be sure to take note of her phone number posted on the easel. You may be able to submit a photo and requests for her to create something special for you. If I can help you find any more artistic vacation touches for your family, please let me know. You’ve got a friend in me! ~ Lindsey P.
