    Splash Mountain Poster (WDW Version)

    So, I've stated on here multiple times that my favorite WDW attraction is Splash Mountain. While I was in WDW over the summer, I was on a hunt for the Splash Mountain poster. I went to the Art of Disney stores at Downtown Disney, on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom and the one next to Spaceship Earth in Epcot. Each of these stores had the Splash Mountain poster that said Critter Country and Disneyland on it. However, to no avail did I find the one that said Frontierland and Walt Disney World on it.

    This would be the image of what I'm looking for: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...ain-Poster.jpg

    For comparison, this is the Disneyland one:

    Now, while each Art of Disney store had the Critter Country/Disneyland one, not even on the computer kiosks did they have the Fronteirland/Walt Disney World version (both posters are exactly the same, except for the land and park on the bottom). But I really want the one that says Frontierland/Walt Disney World. As a matter of fact, the Art of Disney Store at Downtown had the Frontierland/Walt Disney World one hung in a frame on the wall above the showroom floor, but none for purchase.

    Here are my questions: does anyone know of anywhere, anyone that still has it? Is it even still made? Any knowledge on why they don't have the Frontierland/Walt Disney World version anymore?

    Neither Amazon or ebay had any, and nothing through Disney. I did find a few Critter Country/Disneyland ones, but no Frontierland/Walt Disney World ones. My cousin has the Frontierland/Walt Disney World in his house, which he said he got 2 years ago at the Art of Disney store on Main Street. I asked multiple employees about it down there, and each time got the same response: we don't have any. And when I asked if more were going to be produced, I got nothing out of them.

    I sifted other forums, mostly the DisBoards to see what they had to say, and nothing. Wanted to see if anyone on here had any input.

    Any input, advice, or even any knowledge of this and if I can find it would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Splash Mountain Poster (WDW Version)

    Hmmm....I wonder if those posters were back in the day posters. I don't know if you have seen pictures from back then but the Train station was where Splash is now. The station isn't what it was and Splash took sometime to build and it was difficult to navigate when the RR was open while they were building Splash.

    Wonder if these were created back then to advertise the new coming attraction not for sale?

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Outside of the words at the bottom, am I missing something or are those two posters identical?
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    He wants the one from Frontierland/WDW not the one from Disneyland.

    I just couldn't find a major difference outside of the wording. I know that many of the shops do sell replica Disney ride posters. but it sounds like you already tried that. I wonder if the website or toll free number can help out?

    To respond to the earlier above, yes they are the exact same poster. But, some say Critter Country and Disneyland on the bottom, others say Frontierland and Disney World. In all of the Art of Disney stores in Disney World, including the computer kiosiks, the one saying Disneyland was available; there was nothing even to identify that they sold one saying that one with Disney World on the bottom was made. They just don't anymore, and the employees there had no answer as to why they didn't have the one that says Disney World other than that they don't have it or sell it.

    I probably should, but I probably won't get anywhere since in the stores I was told that they don't make or sell it, even though they have it hanging on the walls of their store. Nothing on ebay, amazon, etc...only the one that says Disneyland is available. Of course, I only want the Disney World one.
