    About 6 years ago I went to Disneyland and found a shop where you could have an artist sketch a scene from a movie right in the shop, and purchase it. Is there a shop like that at Disney World? We'd love to have another amazing souvenir.

    Hi, Lauren, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with this artfully designed question. I love incorporating Disney decor into my home, so I understand your quest. I believe I know the shop you're referring to at Disneyland Resort because I visited a few months ago and was in awe of Disneyana. This shop was a layered tapestry of beauty! And although Walt Disney World Resort offers many artistic options, there isn't a gallery or shop there exactly like Disneyana. But let's see if we can brush up and find some colorful alternatives.

    One spot you can try is Crystal Arts of Main Street, USA, at Magic Kingdom Park. You can sometimes watch artisans like glass blowers in action there and take home a piece you watched come to life. Also, on Main Street, USA, you can stop by the Liberty Square Portrait Gallery for an iconic silhouette cut while you wait. These keepsakes are a family tradition for many guests.

    If you're at Disney Springs, you can browse the gallery at The Art of Disney. Artists will often stop by to sign pieces and chat with guests, so you could check with a Cast Member to see if anyone is scheduled to appear during your visit.

    Lauren, I've also seen street artists capturing guests' personalities in caricatures around the resort. These original and unique works of art make fun souvenirs, as well. I've seen caricature carts at many Disney Resort Hotels, inside the Theme Parks, and at Disney Springs. Since locations and times can vary, ask any Cast Member for more details about these artists. 

    I hope I've helped you PICcasso some art options that won't cost too much MONET on your next visit, Lauren. Please stop by planDisney anytime because I'll go to great PAINts to help you.

    Magic awaits,
