    Disney announced on Monday, during a special event at Club 33 inside Disneyland park, that Alice Davis will be honored with her own window on Main Street USA on the 10th May.

    Alice Davis is well known for her costume design work and has styled some of the most beloved characters at Disney Parks – including those found in the classic attractions, “it’s a small world” and Pirates of the Caribbean. She first designed costumes for the Walt Disney Studios during the production of “Sleeping Beauty.” It was common for animators to use live-action footage as reference – it helped them to see how the actors, fabrics, hair and other elements moved.

    She continued to design costumes for the Walt Disney Studios until 1963, when she undertook a costuming project that would go on to become one of the most famous theme park attractions in the world. Along with fellow Disney Legend Mary Blair, Alice supervised the creation of more than 150 costumes for “it’s a small world,” helping to bring to life the iconic dolls who would sing the unforgettable theme song.

    Alice Davis was inducted in 2004 as a Disney Legend, an award given by the company.

    The last window dedication was for the Sherman brothers, the songwriting duo who wrote about 150 songs for Disney.

    I know I've banged on about it before but Lisa and I spent a whole afternoon with her and her husband the now late Marc ( google him he truely was a legend ) between them they have been responsible for an awful lot of magic.

    A nicer lady you couldn't hope to meet. One of the most magical days we have had.
