Even though the real-world statue has yet to debut at EPCOT, a new Walt the Dreamer ornament has appeared on shopDisney. The statue the ornament is based on is set to be installed at Dreamers Point sometime this year, though an exact date has not been announced.
This ornament is available right now on shopDisney, though we wouldn’t be surprised if it also made its way to Walt Disney World store shelves soon.
This ornament depicts the statue of Walt Disney planned for EPCOT, in which he sits and looks on at the guests enjoying his park. The actual statue, once placed, will serve as a reminder of Disney’s “creative vision for an optimistic future” that will inspire guests “to build on their dreams for generations to come.”
The ornament version is no different, and serves that same reminder, albeit in a smaller form factor.
This fully-sculpted figural Sketchbook Ornament features translucent and glitter elements, with Walt cast in a bronze finish as he sits upon a speckled base. The ornament can be hung with the satin ribbon that comes attached via lobster claw clasp, or it can be removed to make the ornament a freestanding desk display item.
This Walt the Dreamer Sketchbook Ornament is available to order and ship now on shopDisney. Stay tuned for if the ornament makes an appearance at the parks.
Walt the Dreamer Statue at EPCOT
The Walt the Dreamer statue will be on a set of steps right behind Spaceship Earth. Many Disney Parks around the world feature statues of Walt Disney, but this one will be unique because he’s not accompanied by Mickey Mouse.
The statue made its debut at D23 Expo last year, and was on display for guests to see prior to its installation. Despite the statue already complete, it is likely that its place at Dreamers Point won’t open until the rest of construction on EPCOT’s World Celebration is complete.
