New Mickey Mural sneak peek from Epcot’s Creations Shop. Zach Riddley, an Imagineer at Walt Disney World, has been giving updates on some of the goings-on during Epcot’s construction and refurbishments. Recently, Zach gave us some info on what goes into picking rug colors for the new Space 220 restaurant, and also the new Club Cool designs. Now in his most recent post, he gives us an update on some of the new artwork, including this New Mickey Mural.

EPCOT has a wealth of original art and artifacts installed through the park that tells OUR story – of history and wonder and curiosity. Since the beginning, murals like the ones we see at Spaceship Earth, Living with the Land, and all throughout World Showcase have been an important piece of EPCOT. Continuing this legacy of original art pieces, our team leading this transformation has found ways to represent both the creativity of the artists and the inspiration they bring to all who come to this place.

This was a driving idea behind Creations Shop – a place dedicated to creative inspiration and commemoration that comes from the wonderful souvenirs we collect to mark our experiences. Today, I am excited to reveal – for the first time – one of these original art pieces installed in Creations Shop, featuring our muse for creativity, Mickey Mouse.

Like all original pieces of art – this one has a title: Mouse in Motion!

This mural is hand-painted, and as you move closer, you can see the brushstrokes and movement directly from the artist’s hands. And this mural is large – spanning over 35 feet. It is placed on the south end of our shop, in a position that you can admire from all corners of this new space.

The composition features Mickey Mouse in dynamic poses through a prism of colors. From left to right, Mickey is in a moment of movement and energy, recalling graphic inspiration drawn from print, media, and even street art. We were inspired by our legacy – leveraging hand-drawn linework and the look of Mickey Mouse from the time when Walt Disney World and EPCOT were first being dreamed up by Walt Disney and his early Imagineers. In the left portion of the composition, Mickey is proudly carrying a pennant emblazed with the EPCOT logo, one of many nods to our past captured through our design.

This bold statement inspires us, now and into the future. It’s present tense. Like Mickey, we keep moving optimistically towards a future of our making.

Stay tuned for even more details on the re-imagining of EPCOT.
