Tiki Bird Attraction Poster Concepts

   Like most of you, I'm pretty darn obsessed with Disney park attraction posters, and the history behind them.  No adjective can describe the joy I felt upon receiving the new Poster Art of the Disney Parks book!  I've been sitting, silently enchanted, and totally mesmerized by this book for the last few days.
   Yup. I'm a dork.  Here are a few wonderful concept pieces that eventually led to the super iconic posters for the Enchanted Tiki Room and Tropical Serenade.

  1. I think I would hang one one of the last two in my apartment.

    It's horrible I still haven't looked at my copy of this book, right? I need a week off just to read.

    Glad you guys are back! :)

  2. It's so much fun to see the concept art for posters that became a huge part of my childhood!

    My favorite...Alice in Wonderland. Followed closely by Tiki Room and Matterhorn Bobsleds.

  3. I have small versions of the Jungle Cruise and Tomorrowland posters and a big monorail poster (http://www.posters57.com/images/walt-disney(1).jpg) on my walls. Love them. I've gotta get a copy of that book!
