« back to Magic Kingdom
As a child I had a silhouette portrait done in Disneyland. I would love to have one done of my daughter when we visit Disney World this summer. Do they still do this and if so, where?

I had silhouettes of my girls made during my last WDW vacation. They immediately became one of my favorite Disney souvenirs ever!
There are several places at WDW where you can have silhouettes done. We had ours made by a very friendly artist named Jan right on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. (Hi Jan! Your beautiful work is now hanging in our upstairs hallway
.) She is stationed at a large cart about half way down Main Street on the right, just into a small alleyway. There is also a silhouette cart in Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom. If you're in Epcot, there are silhouette artists near the France pavilion at the World Showcase. And there is also a silhouette stand in the Downtown Disney Marketplace area.
In addition to being an amazing keepsake, I felt like the silhouettes were very reasonably priced. The actual silhouette itself was only about $8.00 per person (bear in mind that prices can change). There were also very moderately priced frames for sale there and suited the art perfectly.
Oh, I can just see your childhood silhouette framed next to your daughter's. How special!
