Next Saturday, Feb. 28, Disneyland will be celebrating the re-opening of It's a Small World, which has been renovated to include characters and music from other Disney films like "Aladdin," "Mulan," and "The Little Mermaid." I am sooo not okay with the latest additions. The ride was fine the way it was, but I digress.
Artist Dave Avanzino and Small World costume designer Alice Davis will be at the Disneyena shop on Main Street USA inside of Disneyland from 10 a.m. - 12 noon for a special signing of the new product releases that coincide with the re-opening.
Here's a peek at some of the items . . .
Mixed media paper structure by Dave Avanzino, edition of 10 ($800)
India costume based on sketches by Alice Davis ($4,800)
painting by Jimmy Pickering, edition of 50 ($475) or deluxe print ($35)
And of course there's also pins.

Each one is an edition of 1000 and features how the latest additions will be featured in the ride.
They're cute, but it's just not the same!!! ::sigh::
