    I understand the caricatures artist in new Orleans can do dogs, can they do other animals (cats) too?

    Yo Ho, Stacey!

    So... ye come seekin' adventure and salty old pirates, eh? Well, not really. What you seek is actually directly across from the exit of my all-time favorite attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean! Welcome to planDisney and I'd be happy to help with your request. I was actually on-site last night and I approached the Cast Member to ask your question.

    I'm very pleased to let you know that the artists will indeed create a caricature of other animals besides dogs. They commonly receive requests to create pictures of cats and will happily oblige! The Cast Member recommended that you bring two pictures of your cat from slightly different angles (smartphone photos are fine). They will use one to draw the ears and the other for your cat's face. Keep in mind that it does take some time for the picture to be created and commissions might begin to stack up, so I would recommend approaching them earlier rather than later.

    In fact, I have a drawing of my own Golden Retriever, Lilo, that one of my friends gifted to me as a surprise! You can purchase just the drawing itself but they will also frame it for you for an additional charge. And thankfully, I was able to just keep my frame there until the end of the evening so I wouldn't have to carry it around all day. It's one of my favorite souvenirs!

    Stacey, I hope that I was able to help answer your question! Whether you're more a fan of Lady and the Tramp or if you tend towards The Aristocats because "a cat's the only cat who knows where it's at," I'm sure the artist will be able to accommodate your request. Have a fantastic visit to the Disneyland Resort and please feel free to write again if you need anything else from us. You're always welcome here at planDisney! 

    Have a Magical Day!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
