A Fun Look at Creating the ‘Wonderful World of Animation’ for Disney’s Hollywood Studios

The brand new nighttime experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is debuting on Wednesday, May 1.

The Wonderful World of Animation, will use state-of-the-art projection mapping, and other effects, to take guests on a special journey through 90 years of Disney animation.

Something this epic takes a team and the Disney Parks Live Entertainment team has been working on this show for months! Recently they have been going in after hours to fine tune the event.

The Disney Parks Blog has posted this amazing behind the scenes look at the new show!


Wonderful World of Animation transforms the Chinese Theater into the black-and-white world of classic Mickey Mouse. It starts off with an homage to the classic short film, Mickey’s Gala Premiere. After that the show bursts into full color, turning into Mickey’s scene in Fantasia, from there it “launches into sequences filled with magic, family, adventure, romance, villainy and friendship. Each theme is brought to life through unforgettable moments from Disney and Pixar animated films, from Coco and The Incredibles to Sleeping Beauty and Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

This is such a fitting and fun way to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
