Walt Disney World has slowly been replacing food containers and cups at the parks with new Mary Blair-inspired items. First, we saw new popcorn containers, then new paper cups. Now a matching foam cup for hot beverages has arrived.
These new cups were designed by Disney artist Jeff Granito, whose work is recognizable for its bold blocks of bright colors. Mary Blair is perhaps most known for her design work on “it’s a small world” and you can see how Granito was inspired by her colorful work.
While the old cups featured the main four Walt Disney World park icons, these new cups have several more Disney icons, including the Monorail, a Disney Cruise Line ship, and a Mickey balloon.
The old cups were also a dark red to match the Coca-Cola branding, so it’s nice to see some fun pastel colors.
We found these at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, but we expect to be seeing them appearing all around Walt Disney World Resort. What do you think of the new design?
