So who’s the designer in this magical collaboration? That would be Ashley Taylor. She’s an artist for Disney, Her Universe, and more. Take a look at her enchanting illustrations and you’ll see influences of two legendary Disney illustrators: Mary Blair and Eyvind Earle.
She recently released an art collection inspired by The Main Street Electrical Parade finale float to coincide with the parade’s 50th anniversary. On her Instagram, Ashley describes her artistic interpretation of the it’s a small world-inspired float as her “love letter to Mary Blair.”
To celebrate the release (her biggest to date!), Disneyana on Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland Park is hosting a signing event on June 17 and 18.

With this Cinderella-themed Disney Wish merch, Ashley says she wanted to “capture the dreaminess of the song ‘A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.’” (That’s one of the songs that the ship’s horn can play. How apropos!)
We don’t know about you, but we happen to think she succeeded in bringing her vision to life. Taking inspiration from the golden Cinderella statue in the Disney Wish’s spectacular Grand Hall, Ashley illustrated Cinderella as if she’s “catching a wishing star and making a wish.”
Let’s take a closer at the concept art for the exclusive Disney Wish Cinderella merch collection …
Exclusive Art Print
Just as Ashley envisioned, Cinderella is tenderly reaching out to grasp a falling star. The Disney Wish ship is captured in all its splendor at the top of the print. Look closely and you’ll also notice Jaq and Gus peeking out from underneath Cinderella’s skirt.
Disney Wish Cinderella T-Shirt
Fit for a princess! Cinderella looks right at home standing in the ship’s Grand Hall. Instead of traditional t-shirt sleeves, the ruffles add a delicate touch.
Bring home a piece of that magic at sea. These coasters are a great (and practical!) keepsake.
Coming Soon: Disney Wish Cinderella Merch
