Miniature Dioramas Are a Little Bundle of Cute

Share This!

Looking for an inexpensive souvenir that is easy to pack in your suitcase but brings a little Disney magic home with you? These cardboard diorama kits may be the perfect fit.

Unlike the Metal Earth series, which although impressive looking seems to require a PhD in engineering to put together, these dioramas are very simple to assemble. Each layer simply slips into place in the provided frame. The result is a 3-D scene from a favorite Disney attraction, like Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, or Splash Mountain. At $17, it is a fun way to bring the magic of vacation home with you with a simple project to do with a child.

    I bought The Haunted Mansion one at the gift shop at POP Century, but it seems like I was seeing them everywhere.

    I bought the Tiki Room diorama at the Adventureland Bazaar in Disneyland back in May but couldn’t find any others around the resort. I was delighted to see them again at the Celebrity 5 & 10 at Hollywood Studios a couple of weeks ago. These are really fun and a great collectible souvenir (especially for kids who already have so many stuffed toys).

    I bought the Splash Mountain mini-di and then realized the scale was the same as the photo pass Splash Mountain photos. I’m not very crafty but with some sharp scissors I was able to cut out a new diorama layer and slot my sons into the frame along with Brer Rabbit. Were they surprised!
