The answer was the art and work of Mary Blair.
I grew up in Los Angeles, and so visits to Disneyland were an exciting part of my childhood. My favorite ride has always been It's a Small World, and I remember, as a child, admiring the murals Mary Blair designed. Sadly, those murals at Disneyland are now gone but Mary Blair's design influence remains).
Even at home, I had books and albums of music with artwork by Mary Blair.
