This 9″ was also on display. It is on the old 9″ mold. Can you help identify it? Is it an Art of Animation? Although the design isn’t representative of any of the hotels being constructed.

  • Actually, these are kind of ugly when close up. The Contemporary isn’t as amazing as I hope it’d be, but I do appreciate the 3″ isn’t a Monorail Red/Orange but a Gold. And the Castle Cake… Oh my dog. I love the Castle Cake but I really dislike how it’s portrayed on the 9″. Doesn’t even resemble Cinderella Castle.

  • Disappointed with the choice of putting this on the new mold. All of these are ugly! Well, at least this will save me some $$!

  • To help you with your question, their was an exhibit in tomorrowland at disneyland in the 60’s that showed the process of animation and that 9 inch is that exhibit’s poster.

  • Is it just a coincidence but the ones that look the worst are the ones on the new mold. I went to WDW when the castle was decorated to look like a cake and that vinyl does not represent it at all, just awful looking.

    • I agree, there is no definition in it. And as much as I enjoy the Contemporary as an icon of the WDW landscape, I was hoping for a better look on that as well. – Nick

  • I agree the Animation one matches the Disneyland poster someone linked, but isn’t this series a WDW 40th anniversary series? Dd the exhibit come to Florida?

    • Only the first 2 are Park 8s. Not sure yet what series the Animation one goes with. The Animation one is also old more 9″, unlike the two above it.

  • Contemporary looks nice, Birthday Cake could’ve been great but lacks detail, and 3rd I’m not familiar with but looks ok. Excited to see the Yeti P8 9 inch. By the way, why 2 left hands?

  • Boy they are really trying to kill of the 9″, especially if its at that new bs MSRP of 74.99. these were all great ideas, just executed incorrectly. The contemporary and birthday cake castle could have been so much more =(
