“Oh, boy!” The genius mind that created the beloved character Mickey Mouse, Disneyland Park, dreamt of Walt Disney World Resort, and so much more can now adorn your Christmas tree this holiday season. That’s right, Walter Elias Disney is taking center stage in our ornament collection this year!
New Walt Statue
If you’ve missed the big news, a new Walt Disney statue is preparing to make its grand debut at Walt Disney World Resort’s EPCOT. Located near Spaceship Earth, the new “Dreamers Point” in EPCOT’s World Celebration will feature a “Walt the Dreamer” statue.
The Walt the Dreamer Disney Park statue was available for Guests to view at the 2022 D23 Expo last fall.
Much like the current “Partners” statue located in the center hub below Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park, we anticipate Walt’s newest statue at EPCOT will be a photo focal point for Guests of all ages year after year.
