Wow Ed I love your display!!! When you post the pics of the individual pieces if it's not too much trouble can you also let us know what collection it comes from such as Dept 56, disney park exclusive, disneyshopping/catalog etc. that would really help to know for those of us who are looking for them on ebay etc.

Many thanks for all the kind words.

I will post individual pics but I will have better ones after I break it all down in Jan. The first ones I post will be the actual Disney Village collection. Some of them are from WDW and some are from DL. As you can see, I am not all that particular as far as keeping the integrity of a particular set. I am just trying to capture a look-and-feel of the parks in order to add the Disney magic to our holidays.

I even have some hand made pieces such as the TWA rocket which is an old Glencoe kit and Space Mountain which I built myself out of plastic sheet. Next up for homemade pieces will be Small World and Matterhorn (Probably get done in the next 25 years or so; been talking about them for years already and my girls don't believe me anymore). The Matterhorn will be a half piece like Space Mountain to go up against the post and a 3D flat version of the facade of Small World for another side of the post.

I saw a flat fireworks display several years ago with some set (Dept 56?) that I didn't get and am kicking myself now.

That is just wonderful. You have given me inspiration to do this. Where did you get the boats - they are just beautiful.

Finally! Here are some pics of the individual pieces. This first batch is from the Disney Village collection. Some are from WDW and some from DL.

First up, the train station from WDW:







These all have characters associated with them. The train station has Mickey standing in the back.

edhi ~ a guest was in our shop yesterday asking about the Haunted Mansion from the Disney Village set (which we are still out of) and I told him about your set up. Great work!

Here is the Emporium. The character on this piece is Minnie carrying a load of packages.

The river boat actually came from Lowes. It has fairly low quality standards but is a good stand-in for the Disney boats. It is actually named the River Belle.

The Captain Hook ship is a Disney piece but not in the Village collection.

Yep, I was told they wouldn't get any more in until January. I'll be at the World in April and hope I can get one then.
