Glass Blowing begins at Magic Kingdom

As we previously reported, the new Crystal Arts store on Main Street USA has begun to stretch down the side street and included an area for glass blowing demonstrations in the rear.

We were luckey enough to be some of the first guests to experience this new feature which brings some much needed charm and theme to the area.

Glass artisan Mark Haller is one of two artisans who staff the location. He gives a knowledgeable presentation about the artform and glass in general. It’s entertaining and enlightening.

The production of a piece takes about 30minutes on average and the piece produced can be purchased immediately – though it must cool down overnight in a special oven.

For the showing we experienced, Mark created a lovely emerald green and gold vase in front of a sizable congregation of fascinated park guests.
