More than shots of Mickey Mouse for sure, the museum tells of the Disney creativity and business skill in some detail, including his anti-union side. Many examples of his and his team's work and how they did it all.
This museum is really for Disney history buffs, not so much for small children or casual fans. Prepare to read a LOT and spend at least a couple of hours. Walks you through Disney's life and projects. Includes some early art/prototypes that you may not...More
Always love to go. So many fun events. I love the tour guides also so full on information and fun. I love the gift shop too. Wished the café had more of a variety. The movies they show too are fun... I always learn something...More
What a treat to learn all about the history of Walt's family and how he got to be THE Imagineer from the very beginnings. Authentic, creative displays of things you would never see anywhere else, and a unique way of capturing his life in photos,...More
I learned so much about Walt Disney and the empire he created by walking through this well done museum. I think the real highlight for me was seeing all 26 of his Academy Awards in the entry room before I started through the museum. Some...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.
