Pieces include the Cinderella Coach and Clock Tower, Smee in the row boat, as well as the final snail and centipede from the Alice in Wonderland section.

These look great! I really hope he makes the whole park! I'm almost done with the Main Street Collection, then I'll start on Fantasyland. Looking forward to the Matterhorn, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Indiana Jones pieces especially!

These are fantastic pieces — here's hoping many more from Disneyland will follow — the Matterhorn maybe?

The article doesn't say but I would believe you will have to be present at the event to get a signed piece.
