(Updated with 2022’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 28 prints, with release dates when I could verify them. I believe they were all 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)
2021 (no picture available)
- Star Tours
- It’s a Small World
- Tomorrowland Speedway
- Tower of Terror
- Sunshine Tree Terrace / Orange Bird
- Spaceship Earth
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.
