The Liberty Square area is one of my absolute favorite areas in Walt Disney World. So I’m super excited to see the parasol painting back. I have always wanted to do the silhouettes, but haven’t had time.

Funny story about the caricatures though, my husband was offered a job doing them at the parks before. For those that don’t know my husband Thom, aka Kneon, is a comic book artist/caricaturist and a few years back he was offered a job if we wanted to move to Orlando. I just can’t see him wearing the colonial costume for this location.
If you are visiting the Magic Kingdom soon make sure you stop by the are on Main Street U.S.A. or in Liberty Square to check out the various artists that offer these special, personalized, pieces. I’m always for supporting artists!
