Disney Legend Alice Davis Will Get Window on Main Street in Disneyland


Disney Legend Alice Davis will finally be getting her own special window on Main Street in Disneyland.

At a special Club 33 event on March 19th, Imagineer Kim Irvine officially announced the news! You can just see Alice's delight in the photo!

Alice Davis began work in the Walt Disney Studios, but is best known for her costume design of some of the most beloved characters at Disney Parks – including those found in the classic attractions, “it’s a small world” and Pirates of the Caribbean.


She continued to design costumes for the Walt Disney Studios until 1963, when she undertook a costuming project that would go on to become one of the most famous theme park attractions in the world. Along with fellow Disney Legend Mary Blair, Alice supervised the creation of more than 150 costumes for “it’s a small world,” helping to bring to life the iconic dolls who would sing the unforgettable theme song.

Two years later, she translated her husband’s, Imagineer Marc Davis, drawings for the Pirates of the Caribbean into designs and patterns for all the costumes that would be seen in the new attraction.


In addition to the extraordinary work seen by thousands of Disney Parks guests through the years, Alice’s influence at Walt Disney Imagineering extended to the development of manufacturing, quality control and refurbishment standards for the three-dimensional characters created by Walt Disney Imagineering.

Alice has always been very gracious to her fans in the Disney Community. She has made numerous appearances at special events sharing tales of what it was like to work in the early days of Disneyland!
