The Silhouette Studio is located on Main Street, U.S.A. It is one of favorite stores at Disneyland. I think that one of the best, most unique, most personal and least expensive Disneyland souvenirs you can purchase is a silhouette. Here's why:

  1. It's personalized. It's your image.
  2. It's handcrafted by talented artists. They work super fast and attention to detail is amazing.
  3. The price is right. It's under $9.99 and an additional $16.95 for the frame.(Discounts only apply to frame. Don't discount on the artist & their work). 
  4. You actually receive two (2) images of your silhouette. 
  5. A treasured keepsake of your trip or to mark a special occasion.
  6. It's Disney art that you will proudly display in your home. 

The first time I had a silhouette done was for my wedding program almost 22 years ago. Since you get two images, I saved one to frame and the other I used for my wedding program. Now I have this extra image in my scrapbook.

I brought each of my kids to have their silhouette cut for their 1st, 5th, 10th and 15th birthdays. When my oldest graduated high school last year, I had her silhouette done and put them on her graduation party invitations and favors. You can get the silhouettes cut out individually or together. You can even have a select Disney character silhouette alongside yours.

From their silhouettes, I could see little details of my kids growing up. As a mom, I treasure how I can see their profiles when they were a baby, toddler and young adult through these images. Documenting their childhood through these artist silhouettes is priceless!

The artist themselves are amazing and dedicated. There are only a handful of them who work at the Silhouette Studio. Spend time talking to them as they are also a wealth of Disney information. A couple of them have been there many years. 

Spend the extra to protect, preserve and show off you Disneyland silhouette. The frame has hidden Mickey's in the pattern. It completes the package and experience. 

Plastic frame with hidden Mickey's is additional purchase but worth it.

It's probably one of the most overlooked stores on Main Street, U.S.A. It is a tiny treasure that you should really check out. For me, having a Disneyland artist cut your silhouette is a great Disneyland experience and one of the best and most valuable souvenirs you can take home and put on your wall to enjoy. Every time you look at it, lots of memories will warm your heart, too. 

Wishing you some Disney today!
