We really loved our visit here. This was such an interesting museum. You have to admire how Walt had nothing but worked hard and had a vision and it paid off. Lovely to read all the history of how he got started and it was...More
Went with a mix of ages in the family. The younger kids had fun but were not as interested as us "older" Disney fans. The 20-somethings wanted to stay the longest. The parking was super easy. The venue was very handicap accessible. Beautiful area.
I am a moderately big Disney fan, and found this museum a terrific look at the life of a guy who changed entertainment. The exhibit text is told largely through his own words and words of friends, family and employees. Video is used extensively to...More
This is a must visit in the Presidio. This museum exceeded my expections. Amazingly detailed history of the Disney family, how they came to America, and worked and expanded. Then, the second half is an even better journey through Walt's creative evolution... and then his...More

Also note that although it is named the Disney Family Museum it is not a "family" museum per se. Rather, it is a museum on Walt Disney's family. It is all reading exhibits and pictures of how Walt (and Roy) built the Disney brand largely from the viewpoint of his daughter Diane. I loved it, I don't recommend it for children, especially if they can't read.
