Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos of the exhibit in the Disney Gallery, which opened June 30.
The Disney Gallery on Main Street is hosting an exhibit entitled Crowning Achievements - Creating Castles from Magical Kingdoms.
A quick look through the gift store area. These are in the vault.
The first gallery features original artwork for the exhibit that is for sale, both originals and recreations.
Moving on to the second/larger room of the gallery.
Front and center is a model of the castle in Paris.
A closer look:
Now a trip around the gallery. Starting on the first wall on the left when you enter. It features what is inside the castles.
First up a look at Sleeping Beauty Castle Walk-Through at Disneyland. This piece was done by Eyvind Earle.
Each picture has a description. To include more pictures I am not going to post all the descriptions. If you want to read one just let me know and I can post or send it to you.
