Ahead of the installation of the “Walt the Dreamer” statue at EPCOT, a new collection featuring the sculpture has made its debut at Creations Shop in World Celebration.
Walt the Dreamer Statue – $95
This is the miniature version of the larger 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 sculpted miniature statue has Walt sitting on a step, hands clasped as he gazes outward. The Walt figure is painted bronze and the base is speckled gray in color.
There is a purchase limit on the items in this collection of two per guest.
Walt the Dreamer Statue Sketchbook Ornament – $26.99
Previously released on shopDisney, this Sketchbook Ornament features the same look as that of the miniature statue, but in an even smaller form factor.
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.
Walt the Dreamer Pin – $14.99
The last item in this collection is a pin version of the “Walt the Dreamer” statue, which is a sculpted take on Walt in a brushed metal finish. The bottom of the base he sits on includes the EPCOT logo.
What do you think of this new “Walt the Dreamer” merchandise collection? Will you be racing out to EPCOT to pick any of these items up? Let us know in the comments.
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 being complete, Dreamers Point won’t be available to guests until the rest of World Celebration opens this December.
