Popular Disney artists Kevin Kidney and Jody Daily bring their brilliant designs to Walt Disney World’s 40th anniversary party!
After receiving an invite to create nostalgic concepts for WDW’s souvenir collectibles, the artists set to work. Inspired by vintage Walt Disney World — yes, including 70’s orange and lime green — their submissions included attraction replicas, scale models, and retro Tiki mugs.
For the final designs, Kevin and Jody collaborated with Disney artist Linda Flynn from Disney’s Design Group and merchandise team. We’re excited to announce that some food-related designs made the cut!
