Alice Davis Window Dedication Ceremony

Disney Legend and Imagineer Alice Davis has now her own window on Main Street, U.S.A at Disneyland ! Alice Davis, wife of legendary Disney animator and imagineer Marc Davis, was a costume designer at Walt Disney Imagineering, and collaborated with Mary Blair on “it’s a small world” for the 1964 New York World’s Fair, and then designed the clothing and patterns for Pirates of the Caribbean in 1965, inspired by Marc Davis drawings.

You'll find below the video of the window dedication ceremony where Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Tom Staggs and Disneyland Resort President George A. Kalogridis presented the window to Alice Davis, window which is located alongside the window of Marc Davis. Mickey was there of course but what you must not miss is the funny group of pirates appearance at around 5min , then followed by the arrival of mickey and the thanks speech of Alice Davis? Watch it full screen!

AWwww. That was lovely.

Really enjoyed the Quartet and that rather beautiful rendition of When You Wish Upon A Star.

Thanks for posting.
