    Walt Castle Photo

    I've seen this photograph many times in print, and then recently on the press photo tours here on miceage:


    I absolutely love this picture. In fact, I was wondering if anyone knew of a place where I could purchase a large print of it. I would really like to have it framed and hanging in my room. It reminds me of what can be accomplished when you follow your dreams.

    I believe you can buy posters of it in the Disneyana shop. Can someone verify this for me?

    I would love to have a smaller (11x14 or so) version of it. I'm not one for large prints but would like to have that for my living room

    I have also been searching for that print since I first came across it in an Imagineering book. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate it for sale. I once asked a very helpful cast member working in the Disney Gallery and she informed me that while it was a very popular portrait, it was not available in a poster sized reproduction.

    I've got a poster printer, I just want a high-res version of it that can be blown up to the right size without pixellation.

    What's the right size you're looking for? Maybe someone can get it if they know how big you want it.

    And it is an old photograph afterall...Any time you see a large version of it, they had to do some enlargement techniques of their own. There are ways.

    Re: Walt Castle Photo

    Does FedEx really do poster printouts?:P or is that not a typo and someone really named their place FexEx

    (And yeah....that's a nice big one good find)

    P.S. I still am amazed at the forced perspective. I know that there's not much in between them back then and that there was a sort of different setup to get to the platform but the train station looks unbelievably close to the castle. Now that i zoomed in on that I say that even moreso. Who wants to start a conspiracy about this photo like the moon landing?

    I have one of Julie Andrews walking through the castle like Walt here. They did it for publicity photos for the start/announcement of the 50th celebration and were taken May of 2004 (before the castle has its makeover and added bling bling). So it is closeup (or the version I have is cropped) and has the 50th signage on the castle. You also can't see the background of Disneyland as they had a tarp hanging down, which you can see more in the second photo. And those three make an interesting bunch, don't they? Well, that's just my opinion.

    Charles Boyer did a painting of the photo several years ago. A good friend gave me a litho of the painting for my birthday way back when and it hangs in my bedroom to this day.

    Re: Walt Castle Photo

    Has anyone mentioned that this is the same photograph that Michael Eisner presented to Diane Disney Miller all matted and framed on July 17th? He presented Gov. Arnold with a gold motorcycle just for showing up and giving a crappy little political speech about how much Disneyland has done for California's economy, and a framed picture that we can replicate at Michaels for a hundred bucks to the daughter of the man who created the very place they were standing in.
