DATE NIGHT Debuts At WonderGround Gallery

band

I always enjoy my visits to Disney’s WonderGround Gallery. But this time, they really outdid themselves. Not only was my signing station decorated with some great retro props, but I had a band at my side as well! More specifically, I had the awesome Ry Bradley and his band playing some fun ring-a-ding tunes to keep everyone entertained. If you frequent Downtown Disney in the evening, you have probably heard these talented guys before. They usually play the main stage down by ESPN Zone. What an honor to be at the gallery with them. I can’t thank them enough for their fantastic set.

My thanks to everyone at WonderGround Gallery for going above and beyond to make this a really special event! Your efforts to make these things go off without a hitch are so appreciated. Can’t wait to come back.

Special thanks to everyone who braved the heat and the crowds to make their way to Downtown Disney on a Friday evening. That’s no easy feat and I appreciate your efforts. It’s always so humbling to meet all of you and I am touched by your support and kind words.

Pins1The WonderGround Mickey and Minnie pins are now available at the gallery. I know they were sold out during the event but don’t worry – they will be re-stocked soon. The pins are also available at WORLD OF DISNEY and the PIN TRADERS kiosk in Downtown Disney. In the parks, I saw them at the EMPORIUM on Main Street in Disneyland and at the Shops on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure. These are limited release pins and are found behind the counter in display cases. You won’t find them on the spinning display racks. Just ask a cast member! The pins are also supposed to be available at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. I haven’t heard any reports about this yet.

I’ll be back at the gallery with a new image on Saturday October 11th. More details to come.

Just ask Mickey and Minnie – there’s nothing more romantic than Disneyland after dark. From the bright lights of Main Street to the pink glow of the castle, the park transforms to a different place. In my latest piece for WonderGround Gallery, I pay tribute to the Happiest Place On Earth after the sun has set. Mickey and Minnie are dressed in their finest for a DATE NIGHT at Disneyland.

I’ll be at WonderGround Gallery on Friday, September 12th from 5pm – 7pm. Come  say hello and check out the new art and merchandise available.

You can see photos of the other merchandise currently available at the gallery in the photos below. There’s now a new version of the Warm Up Mickey t-shirt available. The gallery has started selling some cool easel frames that perfectly fit a postcard and has the WonderGround Gallery logo on it.

I say this every time I visit the gallery and this appearance was no exception. The cast members who work at the gallery and the event staff are the best. My sincere thanks to them for always being so welcoming. They are always so very accommodating and friendly. I can’t thank them enough for all they do. Thanks also to Sachiko White one of the two current Disneyland Resort Ambassadors who was kind enough to attend the event. What a fantastic representative they have in Sachiko.
