Crystal Arts by Arribas Brothers

Tomas and Alfonso Arribas, 2 brothers from Spain, met Walt Disney at the 1964 Worlds Fair. Walt was so impressed with their artwork that, in 1967, the Arribas Brothers began creating magic in a tiny shop inside the Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland. Now their masterpieces can be found in 19 park locations around the world!

If your heart’s desire is to have a personalized, etched champagne glass, or a handmade piece of jewelry, old world tools are used to create your one-of-a-kind piece. If a silhouette or technologically-advanced face painting is what you want, you can get it here. The hand-woven damassé fabric designs are stunning. (Check your location for availability)
