Refurbishment is going slowly. So far, only one side of the world-famous clowns’ car has been painted, but it looks fantastic.

It’s great to see the vibrant colors. They won’t last long in the Florida sun, but the refresh will keep Storybook Circus looking bright.

The signage and the wheels were refreshed as well.

While the painting is sometimes airbrushed, there are visible brushstrokes that indicate this paint was done by hand.

We suspect the painting will continue daily until the entire area is looking fresh for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration”.

The center character on that wagon looks somewhat like the great Disney animator Ward Kimball. I wonder if that was intended, perhaps as a tribute to him.
