Epcot at Dusk

    Rochelle from UT Asked

    I miss being able to get a character drawing from Art Of Disney near Spaceship Earth. Is there any place else I could find an artist doing those? My son is missing one of TinkerBell's friends from his collection.

    Hi, Rochelle! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm honored that you've trusted us with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation plans so many times in the past, and so glad you decided to pop in for another visit!

    Art of Disney is amazing, isn't it? I'm absolutely awestruck at the incredible artwork on display there. I find myself just walking around admiring everything and wishing I could bring it all home with me!

    As part of the transformation of EPCOT, the Art of Disney store that was near Spaceship Earth has moved to a new location in World Showcase, adjacent to The American Adventure. You'll find it on the right side as you're facing the building with the America Gardens Theater behind you. It's still chock-full of the gorgeous artwork and collectibles that we so admired at the previous location.

    And that's not the only place to find the Art of Disney! There's another one at Disney Springs, between Disney's Days of Christmas and the Rainforest Cafe' in the Marketplace area. This location does host artists from time to time, so check the Disney Springs events calendar to see if anyone is scheduled to be there during your vacation.

    Rochelle, another way to meet artists in person at Walt Disney World is to visit during the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. It's a wonderful time to peruse artwork with a Disney theme, and there are always lots of artists there to talk about their craft and share some of their works with you. Disney hasn't announced dates for the next event just yet, but it usually takes place in January and February. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest. As soon as those dates are nailed down, you'll see it there!

    I hope this helps your son complete his collection of the pals from Pixie Hollow, Rochelle. I'm sure a Cast Member at one of the Art of Disney locations can point you in the right direction. I wish you lots of faith, trust, and pixie dust during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I hope you'll come see us again real soon!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
