Wow. There is way more Dreamfinder this year than in the past. I'm hoping to stop by tomorrow to grab my Golden Book and check out some of the art.

Be sure to catch a showing of what was a nice surprise for me tonight….
One of the Spaceship Earth ‘Beacon of Light’ shows is themed to the Arts Festival, and features a nicely done tribute to the Original ‘Journey Into Imagination’.
View it from the new gardens to enjoy the additional effects of the lights matching the colors!
It was very cool…and hearing that original Attractjon audio blasting through the sound systems was fantastic.

It’s somewhat fascinating for me to see all the attention the original ‘Journey’ has been getting.
The Arts Festival is another example.

Some more photos from the Festival today…

Had to take a shot of Joel’s nice painting.
I met him waiting in the single rider line for Disneyland’s ‘Splash Mountain’ some years ago.
We started talking about Tony of all people….and then artwork.
Quite a guy.

A work in progress, sadly this also was washed completely away in the rain today.
Looked great in person…the colors were so bright and eye catching!

I made a quick trip to Disney just for the Arts Festival. Saw the last night of Gavin & Heidi and the first night of Ashley and L. Steven. Went to all 3 concerts each night and WOW - better than ever. Ashley Brown is performing Feed the Birds this year!

Also got to watch Trevor Carlton paint Minnie, Donald, and Winnie the Pooh.

Looked at lots of incredible art and really had a lovely time.

It's a shame they never used the audio from Splashtacular it would have been a great use since it's the characters singing about the colors in the show....And a great nod to a defunct show seeing it in the original spot with the lights would be impressive.
