Merry Christmas from The Walt Disney Company

What makes the ultimate gift?

This year, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club asked artists from around The Walt Disney Company what their favorite characters would most want for the holiday season. Each artist portrayed Disney characters in a scene illustrating that answer from December 3-25 on


Disney Interactive’s Disney Infinity artist showed Tangled’s Rapunzel with a shiny new frying pan.


And Disney•Pixar’s Monsters University character designer Jason Deamer thought Mike Wazowski wrapped up in a red holiday bow would be the perfect gift.


Casey Jones, senior character artist from the Disney Design Group at Walt Disney World, portrayed the Magic Kingdom park Orange Bird character with a Dole Whip.


While Disney artists featured many characters and hilarious situations in their art, one common theme seemed consistent in all of their illustrations: family. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Brittney Lee summed it up best in her illustration of Anna and Elsa for the holidays.

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
