Art Notes

In the Passport to Adventure series by Thomas Kinkade Studios, Disney’s Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, along with some of their closest friends, explore famous travel destinations around the world. This time Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, and their friends are visiting the Florida coast.

In Disney Mickey and Minnie in Florida by Thomas Kinkade Studios, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse enjoy a warm afternoon on a sandy Key West beach with family and friends. With Daisy Duck’s encouragement, Donald Duck runs out to the ocean, eager to have fun. Goofy tries to keep his balance, standing in his kayak to take a photo of a friendly manatee while Pluto dog paddles back to shore. Morty blows a note through a conch shell as Ferdie, Huey, Dewey, and Louie create architectural masterpieces in the sand, and the curious duo of Chip and Dale ponder the arrival of the sandpiper.
