It has since been embraced by Lucasfilm and parent company Disney as an annual celebration of Star Wars.

Ornament Spotlight: Disney Fantasia

Disney Fantasia
80th Anniversary

Still Magical After 80 Years
Lifelong Disney fan and Keepsake Artist Ken Crow adds magic of his own to a Mickey classic.


Combining his love for Disney with the timeless wonder of “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” Ken set out to make an ornament as magical as the classic Fantasia vignette from 1940, creating a living scene from the movie that has just as much personality as the animated characters in it.

“If an ornament looks predictable and acts like a machine, then that’s what people will think it is.  And that’s not all that magical,” he explains.  “But the ornament’s brooms all have this jiggle that makes them look like they’re lifting the buckets as they hop up the stairs.  And Mickey really does look like he’ reaching to direct everything.  I’m really, really happy with how everything turned out.”

With a press of a button, watch the enchanted brooms go about their work, carrying buckets of water up the steps to music from the animated short, while a coordinated light show immerses you in the ornament’s fantastical scene.
