Mount Rushmore updated

I have to say most of the time I’m all for progress, updating items and moving forward, but at the Disney Store, Disney Village I have an issue.

After yesterdays post I realised that something wasn’t quite right and here is the issue. When the stone work was installed behind the original sign the concept wasn’t in your face Disney characters, but a more subtle Mount Rushmore effect. Look at Donald’s pupils, they are far too dilated. Sometimes the original was the best version, why fix it if it isn’t broke?

I found this photo below by Photosmagiques.com showing it’s original state as it was being painted in 2007.

Thanks to Rich Oswald and Photosmagiques for the photographs.

  1. I really don’t like this sign! Donald looks all wrong 🙁 I had no idea it wasn’t painted before! I must have not noticed it before when it was subtle – I wish they had left it the way it was – it looks sooo much better.

    The original was much better, and more authentic (the painted version doesn’t remind me of Mt Rushmore)
