Walt Disney World gave us a sneak peek of some of the artwork we will be seeing during Magic Kingdom’s 45th anniversary at Walt Disney World.

The artwork features a variety of logos from classic to current rides and attractions throughout Magic Kingdom, including some of the parks latest attractions, such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.

“We wanted the artwork to celebrate Magic Kingdom’s entire history since 1971 yet have an overall vintage feeling,” explained Cody Reynolds, Creative Manager with Disney Design Group. “Artist Jeff Grantio provided much of the artwork for this program. The attraction logos became a big focus for us as they each have such unique and iconic designs. We included opening year attractions like ‘it’s a small world,’ and other more recent additions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train.”

The merchandise will be displayed on a variety of items from shirts to cups and more.

The Magic Kingdom will be officially celebrating its 45th anniversary on October 1st, 2016.
