Let’s be honest… While filling your house with Disney from top to bottom may seem appealing, as an adult, we also want to a “mature” and classic living space. For me, this means a few subtle touches of Disney here and there, with “subtle” being the key term. With my desire for Disney usually putting up a good fight against maturity, I was thrilled to find the Blueprint Place on Etsy. The Blueprint Place offers a wider variety of Disney World and Disneyland blueprints. What’s best is that these are real mid-century technology blueprints. Blueprint Places uses a mid-century machine and special ammonia activated paper to create a real blueprint. It’s not just a photocopy of an original blueprint.
I got in touch with Robert, owner of Blueprint Place, and asked him about his prints. Here’s what he had to say:
I’ve always been interested in blueprints and began collecting them about 30 years ago. When my wife and I had children we visited WDW often (we lived in South Florida at the time) and from that grew my interest in WDW and Disney blueprints in general. Over the decades via purchase, trading and luck I’ve acquired a nice selection of Disney and other blueprints. However, after 9/11 it has become nearly impossible to acquire Disney blueprints of the older and/or iconic rides and attractions.
I was immediately drawn to these blueprints. As a Disney fanatic, I love the history that comes with each blueprint. To me, they also fill that desire to showcase my love for Disney at an adult level. They truly look like works of art. I chose a Cinderella Castle and EPCOT blueprint. It’s fun to see on the EPCOT blueprints that not all of the countries had been decided yet for World Showcase.
They look wonderful framed!
