    I can’t wait for the BVS and Cars Land Christmas celebrations! Hopefully new decorations are added throughout the park. I loved the smaller ones they added to Grizzly Peak and Paradise Pier but some more to those and Hollywood Land would be great. BVS is going to be fantastic! I heard from a friend a few years back about a special Christmas light show one of their close friends was working on for BVS so let’s see what happens!

    I really love the look of the Princess shirts. It’s stylized, yes, but not something I would call “hip it edgy” or as something that pushed wrong message… As previously mentioned, the shirts are done in a fashion illustration style…it’s not meant to be a realistic representation…fashion illustration is an art in and of itself (my art education professor used to be a fashion illustrator so I’ve garnered a new appreciation for the art) and definitely has a mid-century Vogue look to them. Not much different the 50′s/60′s fashion inspired line of dolls and merchandise that was shown at last years D23 Expo. I personally love it. And honestly one could argue the original princesses (especially Aurora and Cinderella from the mid-century) were in and of themselves inspired by fashion models and illustration (just look at their thin frames, high cheek bones, etc…) but I don’t hear any comments on “message” they have been sending…

    Personally, I think the social networking shirts are clever and tasteful. I love the Belle one. Good job on this one, Disney!
