Two new batches of Disney attraction poster based t-shirts have just been announced. The previous Space Mountain shirts, were very popular, so I’m glad to see they’ve decided to continue the series. Like Space Mountain shirts, these Poster Tee Series shirts are only available for a limited time online at the Disney Store. Also as before, the shirts are only produced and shipped after all the orders are in, so allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.
Up first are a pair of shirts that will set your retro-hearts afire. From April 15-20 – You can purchase a purple Fantasyland at Disneyland shirt, or a Sunshine Tree Terrace at Magic Kingdom green beauty. The original Fantasyland attraction poster referenced for the purple tee was created in 1955 by Bjorn Aronson.
Then from April 22-27, the next batch is released in honor of the 50th anniversary of two classic Disney attractions – “it’s a small world” and Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress. Both attractions debuted at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. The “it’s a small world” shirt features details from Paul Hartley 1966′s attraction poster art. The Carousel of Progress shirt was inspired by a 1967 design from Ken Chapman. I think that Carousel of Progress shirt has my name on it.
You can order the two shirts in the first batch right now at this link. The return on the 22nd, and order the next batch. Your purchase will help support The Disney Blog.
