Today, June 9, is the opening of the Wonderground Gallery at Downtown Disney California. It is an art gallery full of amazing paintings and various collectibles and will be the showcase for the new Vinylmation 95.

Noah and a few other artists will be the first to present their customs to the public for purchase, then a Create Your Own will go on sale on June 15 at D-Streets.

Late yesterday, our own Zoe took a peak inside the store.

You can see (besides Zoe’s reflection) Cast Members still setting up inside.

If you would like to get a custom Vinylmation 95 at the Wondergallery, Disney has posted the following information:
“Guests may line up for the Grand Opening of the WonderGround Gallery on June 9, 2012 behind the Rainforest Cafe.

I am so excited to hear more info from anyone who attends the gallery opening today. For anyone who goes, can you describe the art and what else they’re selling there, besides the vinyls of course? I won’t be able to see the gallery in person until August, but I can’t wait!!!


This looks so phenomenal! I can’t wait to possibly see it in person one day!
