A complete history of Walt Disney. So interesting and much more than I expected. Brought back so many memories from when I was a child visiting Disneyland.

Plan to spend at least 2+ hours here learning about the innovations Walt Disney pioneered. Everyone knows and loves Disney movies, but not many know how many technical breakthroughs were created to bring the magic to life.

You can take a quick walk through in about 60, maybe 90, minutes or stay several hours, depending upon your interests and patience. There is lots to read, which can get to be somewhat bothersome if there are lots of people on the same pace...More

We had watched a documentary about Walt Disney's life before visiting the museum. Even so, we ended up spending more than 2 hours. Exhibits are informative, cleverly designed and captivating even if you're not a Disney super-fan. Ultimately, those decades were an important slice of...More
