  • Artwork from the sacred WDI archives...

    Well, you can buy the book if you want. Walt Disney Imagineering: A Behind the Dreams Look at Making the Magic Real - but I thought it would be great of me (hint cough rep points cough hint) to share some of this lovely artwork with those who haven't got this amazing book in their possession. The images were taken on my mobile phone, which although it has a 3 Mega Pixel camera, is still slightly grainy due to the lighting. I can always improve certain images on demand.

    The WDI party at Glendale to celebrate the completion of the construction of Epcot.


    A concept for the Fantasia Gardens mini-golf at the Walt Disney World Resort.


    The opening night celebrations at the Disney-MGM Studios.


    A serene Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom, around dusk.


    One of my all-time favourite images: Cinderella Castle snowed in, at Tokyo Disneyland.


    An early concept for the Tower of Terror at the Disney-MGM Studios.


    Another of my favourite images. Marty Sklar, Dick Irvine and Welton Beckett mark the center of the future site of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom.


    The topping off ceremony on that very site.


    Mentioned on MiceChat a few days ago, a Telsa coil being tested for the Maelstrom attraction at Epcot - it was never installed.


    Blueprints for the Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom.


    An early, beautiful concept for Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris.


    A more unusual concept for that very castle - basically Cinderella Castle with more flowers.


    Disney's America. Just a small image taken from a very nice double page.


    The Grim Grinning Ghosts in their first form.


    One of the images that would come to signify the essence of Disney's Blizzard Beach.


    I thought I would save this until last. Herb Ryman's interpretation of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom. There is also a stunning image of Tokyo Disneyland created by Ryman which did not come well up on my camera at all.


    There ya go! Now go buy the book!

        What a way to lose weight.

        Very cute. This is one of my favorite books in my collection. Great pictures.

          I love this book! And don't forget about the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean books by Jason Surrell. That offer some great insight into their respective attractions.

          And, if anyone can find it, Since the World Began is a great history of WDW, up until the 25th anniversary. I'm glad I snatched it when I had the chance...

            I have read the HM book front to back and back to front, and the PotC book was delivered two days ago.

                I really wish they would do a new one. They must have a WEALTH of artwork from TDS, DCA, DAK and WDS - even if DCA and WDS didn't turn out that good, doesn't mean the artwork won't be cool.

                  Very well done book, but flipping through it I didn't see much that made me scream that I needed to have it.

                  But I should have bought it instead of the Mickey gloves. Oh well.

                    But they probably don't want to get everyone angry at what could have been....

                        I have a feeling its only available in the parks... I got mine at WDW, I'm sure its at DL as well.

                          This very book is sold at DL yes, I saw it there about a year ago. But I bought mine off of the internet, it was cheaper. I also purchased "Designing Disney" by John Hench, and that was also very very good.

                          Also, a friend of mine checked it out from the local library.
