I picked up a Dave Avanzino shadow box at the Disney Character Warehouse outlet store on International Drive yesterday for half price. Good deal. It’s a Jungle Cruise piece and I hung it on my office wall today, above two other of his shadow boxes for New Orleans Square and the Enchanted Tiki Room. We also have a Haunted Mansion one upstairs. They’re not his originals, but still fun to own and display.Tweet
