    Yeah, but it would be easy to remove the GE logo. There are many old silkscreened designs that never made it into Print-On-Demand status, and conversely, there were some posters (Big Thunder Mountain, Peoplemover-Superspeed Tunnel, Mad Tea Party, Pinocchios Daring Journey, etc.) that did make it to Print-On-Demand.

    That's a good question, especially about Mr. Toad. That attraction has been around since "Day One".

    There are 56 mainstream posters. Limited shown posters such as Wonders of China, Star Tours, The Walt Disney Story, Captain EO, Indiana Jones Adventure, Fantasmic!, Carousel of Progress and that makes 63. Not sure about HISTA and Magic Journeys. I think Magic Journeys has a poster, Ive only seen the WDW one though.

    Re: Why did the Attraction Posters stop after 1989?

    Last year at the WDI booth at Cast Blast '05 there were posters for Space Mountain '05 & Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters. The Buzz one was pretty cool!

    For awhile in the entry tunnel there was an Autopia 2000 poster featuring those kids from the queue video. It disappeared rather quickly.

    It must be a WDI tradition to have an attraction poster for every new ride or show...whether or not they are available to the public.

    But then there are all us who will buy those reproductions so they can just create new ones knowing they will sell them. They like Merch!

    They still make posters, you just dont see them as much. MGM has one for teh Great Movie Ride up on the theater, and when DCA opened they had like 3 or 4 made for DCA that you could buy full size prints of...
    Just not as commom. Still there though.

    I agree on the comment about the colors though.

    Re: Why did the Attraction Posters stop after 1989?

    I just realized what about all the Disneyland Paris posters, they were after 1989, and they were created very well, and I wish I could buy the "De La Terre a La Lune" or "Visionarium" posters. I have an "Orbitron" fold out from a WDI book, that I plan to frame.

    What were the posters for DCA? I've seen the one that was used for a short time for the cover of the DCA guide maps this past summer. It's the Soarin' one with a plane flying over the golden gate bridge. What were the others?

The 20,000 Leagues poster had the most at 12 colors used. The newer posters have so many colors, they don't inspire my imagination the way the earlier stylized posters did.
    Wow someone that feels the same way I do about the older attraction posters. You are so right the older ones did indeed make you imagination run wild as to what the attraction was going to really be like. As a kid the ones I liked best were for The Haunted Mansion, Autotopia, 20,000 Leagues and Pirates Of The Caribbean. Funny thing is they still are. They are the ones I bought reproductions of and had framed for my house.

    That Indy poster was sold at the Disney Gallery around thetime when the ride opened. I have one framed. The artist is the same guy that did all the Star Wars Speciel Edition Posters and all the Prequel Star Wars posters.
