Frequently Asked Questions
Are the Maps Originals?
No. They are very good re-creations. The originals were printed on masonite and framed.
What formats do you offer?
We offer the maps in two formats. Either as a printed canvas that can be framed or in an already stretched format that is wrapped around a wood frame that is ready for hanging.
What happened to the originals?
After being removed from the guest rooms in the early 1980’s, many of them were sold as scrap masonite from the WDW Property control behind the Magic Kingdom. Some were given to guests who inquired about them at the right time and shipped to their homes directly from Disney. Occasionally, one will show up on on Ebay, but we offer these beautiful re-creations at a fraction of the price.
When did you first see these maps and how did you recreate them?
I grew up visiting Walt Disney World and was always infatuated with these great maps. Ever since the originals were removed I have been searching for an original and researching the maps. After all my research, I was finally able to recreate the map to a high enough quality that I am comfortable displaying it in my home. More importantly, I’ve learned that I am not alone in my love for these fantastic souvenirs of Walt Disney World. I am especially excited to be able to share my appreciation for these mementos with you.
Can I pay for a WDWMap by some other means other than Paypal?
Absolutely. I will accept checks, cash, Disney Dollars, you name it, I will try to accommodate. Just email me at Payment@wdwmap.com and ask. If paying with check, the check must clear before I will ship the map.
How much is shipping?
But I live outside the United States, what about me?
Contact me and we may be able to work something out. I have shipped maps to the UK and Australia.
What is the difference between the old and new (V2017) maps?
I have been fortunate enough to acquire an original and have re-created the map again at a much higher level of quality. The pre V2017 version had a slight blur, however that has been all but eliminated in the current V2017 maps.
What about me, I have one of the pre V2017 maps?
If you are interested in a new and improved V2017 map, contact me directly at info@WDWMap.com and I will provide you a significant discount on a new map.
