What a lovely exhibition and thanks for sharing it. Makes my 8 piece Disney art collection look poor!!

John B:

Thanks for posting this! I'm dying to make it out there to see it in person! Any idea how long it will run for? I'll be back in DL in early Jan.

-- Glad you enjoyed the pictures. I followed-up with Disneyland, they said it is currently slated to run through early next year but no date has been released and this is subject to change. --- Jason
