“We must never lose sight of one thing.
That it was all started by a Mouse.”
- Walt Disney
Here we are. In what has essentially become
the modern day E.P.C.O.T., or,
Experimental Prototype Community of
Tomorrow. Not the theme park, but an actual
city of the future was one of Walt Disney’s
last dreams. He never lived to see either
Celebration or Epcot built, but both are a
testament to what he brought to the world.
There is also a progressive art school called
The California Institute of the Arts.
Again, another dream of Walt’s that he never lived to see
completed. It’s a place where all of the arts exist under one roof.
They merge, coalesce and create new and inventive art forms.
Of course, it is also the top animation school in the world.

THERE’S NO BETTER PLACE FOR A
CELEBRATION TO REMEMBER!
This is where we “lay our scene”. Celebration resident Daniel L
Rappaport both went to CalArts, and studied graphic and theatre
design. To bring this all current, as of this month, Daniel
has been accepted into the CalArts Expo. A showcase of work
from both current students and alumni can be seen here:
Being originally from Los Angeles, Daniel is extremely happy to
have settled down in Celebration. In stark contrast to the hustle
and bustle of the big city, he finds it to be extremely quiet here,
and thoroughly loves the Downtown area.
Walt Disney is his number one mentor. While
being near the company’s headquarters and
the original Disneyland Resort park is truly
an awesome experience, Walt Disney World
is where his heart truly lies. It’s the excitement
of it all - being on the cutting edge - as
well as it being a model, in so many ways, for
the rest of the world. Also, Epcot truly is his
favorite theme park!
Some of Daniel’s “claims to fame” are as
follows: With over 25 years in the business
behind him, he has worked on projects for
such high profile studios as Disney, MGM
and Fox. He is the recipient of the Leica
Photographie International Master Shot
Gallery Acceptance, and also worked on the
film Wild, which went on to receive two Academy Award
In keeping with this futuristic spirit, which drives him forward on
a daily basis, Daniel has created a company that sells and
markets epic, fantasy Apple Books, music and merchandise.
The company is called Pazzaria Productions. Its mission
statement reads: Everything that a guest would see, eat, buy,
touch, do, wear, and so on, all has to do with their own personal
adventure within our world.

As this interview concluded, Daniel asked to spread good wishes
to all readers and residents, so that they stay safe during this very
difficult time. He looks forward to seeing you at either a future
Art and Wine Walk or Downtown Farmer’s Market!
