The heroes of Toy Story 3 have left the toy box. Woody and Buzz Lightyear meet arch-enemy Lotso the teddy bear on the Future World playground for the 18th Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival March 2 through May 15, 2011, at Walt Disney World Resort.

The popular Disney/Pixar characters hit the sandbox as seven- and eight-foot-tall topiaries at the Epcot front entrance flower bed featuring a sand castle, strawberry-scented field and playground toys.

Chair inspired by 'TRON: Legacy' from Walt Disney Signature and Dror BenshetritYesterday we shared news  of a re-imagining of the Airline chair favored by Walt Disney and his team of animators which makes its debut today at the Art Basel/Design Miami fairs.

Also making its debut from Walt Disney Signature is a new chair inspired by TRON: Legacy by New York designer Dror Benshetrit.

‘Dror’s mission is to articulate the complex meaning of objects in the simplest of ways. Their uses become a part of their narratives, expressed in transformations that are both metaphorical and literal. Raw Data forms a jagged and angular landscape, serving as a muse for a chair that is comprised of intersecting layers and textures of ‘digital’ rock. Constructed of composite material consisting of impregnated fiberglass with polyester resin processed with manual layering, these Special Production Walt Disney Signature TRON Armchairs invite you to “sit off the grid.”‘
