Artist Jim Shore to Appear at Walt Disney World and Disneyland

The award-winning artist Jim Shore will be making appearances at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. A large part of Shore's widespread recognition comes from his 2005 partnership with Disney. Disney Traditions by Jim Shore is one of the most successful co-branded lines in the specialty retail market. "I'm extremely proud of my association with Disney," Jim says of the relationship. "I can't think of a more important name in American popular culture, it's a privilege for me to be linked with that kind of tradition." Disney Traditions by Jim Shore has sold more than $50 million at retail and can be found at Disney parks and at fine retailers throughout North America, Europe, Australia and Asia.

Walt Disney World Appearances: Friday-Sunday, December 3-5.  Disneyland Appearances: Saturday & Sunday,  November 20-21.
