Attraction Posters…for You!
by Greg Maletic
I’ve been getting a lot of requests for printable versions of the Disney attraction posters I did a few years back. Request granted: you can download any of the images in PDF format by clicking on the links below. (PDFs are resolution-independent, meaning that you can print them out at any size you want and they’ll always look perfect.)
The license is simple. Beyond that, there’s only one other restriction: if you print this out and hang it somewhere, you have to e-mail me a photo of your poster (preferably with you standing next to it.) That’s all!
You’ll notice that there are two versions of each poster: a 4 x 6 inch version with no bleed (the color “stops” right at the border of the image), and a 36 x 54 inch version with a 0.5 inch bleed (the color leaks over the edge, so if it’s trimmed you won’t see any white edges.) Since either version can be scaled by your print driver to be any size you’d like, the version you pick has less to do with the size you want the poster to be than whether you want the bleed or not. To scale the image, on the Mac, just specify the appropriate percentage in the Page Setup… dialog. On Windows I’m not sure, but there’s got to be a similar way to do it.
(In case you’re wondering what the “actual” size of Disney attraction posters is…it’s all over the map. Some reproduction posters I purchased at the Disney Store several years back were 36 x 54 inches, and I always believed–but am unsure–that this was the size of the original posters. Since then, the posters have gotten smaller. Hong Kong Disneyland’s posters–and Disneyland Paris’ as well, I believe–are 30 x 45 inches. The ones at Walt Disney World today are much smaller than that…I didn’t measure them, but I recall them as being only about 18 inches across.)

Update: There’s a Space Mountain poster for you to download as well!
