(Updated with 2020’s set)
Believe it or not, some info is still difficult to find online. Whenever I get to the end of a thorny research question, no matter how trivial, I like to share what I’ve found back with the rest of the web.
Dave Perillo is one of my favorite artists right now. I collect prints/posters/whatever I’m supposed to call them. Dave did a series of posters based on Disney attractions and rides that I think capture a ton of the magic of those experiences. He’s got a semi-vintage style that I’m into, and I like that most of them include somebody on the ride itself. They encapsulate the experience of riding in a slightly abstract way, and aren’t just a well-posed picture of the attraction itself.
There’s too many of them for me to justify owning, but then I discovered 5″x7″ postcard versions! Now that’s achievable. But it was frustratingly hard to find a complete list of which posters exist. After extensive googling and browsing ExpressoBeans, here’s what I think is a complete list of all 20 prints, with release dates when I could verify them. I believe they were released in sets of 4:
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Pirates of the Caribbean
- Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride
- Splash Mountain
- Snow White’s Scary Adventures
- Enchanted Tiki Room
- Mad Tea Party (teacups)
- 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (2019)
- Carousel of Progress (2019)
- Peoplemover (2019)
- Journey into Imagination (2019)
- Big Thunder Mountain (2020)
- Country Bear Jamboree (2020)
- Swiss Family Treehouse (2020)
- Kitchen Kabaret (2020)
Here’s my collection as of 2019! The bottom four are even signed.
I’m disappointed that Disney chose to change the borders on the cards so many times, but I still love having a complete set. Now to consider framing options.
