Hawaiian Vacation: The Art of Disney Exclusive Laser Cel Limited Edition Print

A huge thanks to my Brita who surprised me with this fantastic Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation 3D print for a 4th of July Present!

This post is following the write ups I did for three other prints from this collection, the Finding Nemo one and The Incredibles one and the Cars one. If you've read those, then you've pretty much read all the info you need to know about this Hawaiian Vacation one as well. As a side note, I'm surprised this print is based on a screenshot from a Toy Story Toon and not from one of the actual films. Oh well! It's still a great screenshot of the trio.

When we were there at the Art of Disney Store (at Downtown Disney) during our Disney World trip back in May, Brita noticed how much I loved this particular collection prints there and secretly bought them all. There are six Pixar themed prints that were released total. The other prints besides this one include images from  Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars and Up. I'm not sure how many pieces these "limited" prints are limited to, but few enough that I can see these going up in price very soon and becoming hard to find. At the Art of Animation store, they retail for $39.99 and are 8" X 10" in size.

It's hard to tell on here from the picture below, but Woody is "raised" (with the background behind them about 1 cm) for the really cool 3D effect.

These are quality made prints with vibrant colors. I've yet to take the clear shrink wrap off to I can keep them protected until I have room to display them one day, but it's obvious to tell how nice the material is that this print is matted on. Also included is an official Disney Parks certificate of authenticity.

This print is just so awesome in person. The pictures doesn't really do it justice. I just love the clear, glossy "window" looking into such a colorful, iconic, 3D Pixar image. It really pops!

Some of these have shown up on eBay, so you can check out the link below if you're interested in buying. However, they sell for about double (or more than double) the store's price.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to keep coming back here daily to see more items from my Pixar collection.
