Snow White's Adventures Art

In Disneyland Park, the Bank has been converted into a gallery.  The store portion is in the front and the back two rooms feature displays of concept art and photographs from the young park.  The middle room adjoins to the waiting area for Mr. Lincoln.  The displays in the waiting area and the two back rooms are fabulous for history and Disney buffs alike. Along the wall in the far back room is a concept piece from Snow White's Adventure.

World of Color

I had the opportunity to go see World of Color in its first few weeks.  The show was amazing.  The fast pass system is a little confusing: you want to get there as soon as you can.  We did the picnic dinner option - it was easy to pick up the food and you got a great bag with each.  Booking online meant that we could come into the park much later and not worry about crowds.  Outside of California Adventure are banners promoting the show and Snow White is featured:
The same art is on a banner within the park; in front of  It's Tough to be a Bug.
Snow White does appear in the World of Color show, very briefly, near the end of the performance.
