Wonderful World of Animation is an excitement-packed 12 minute projection show will take you on an incredible journey through more than 90 years of Disney and Pixar animation.
Watch in wonder as the façade of the Chinese Theatre at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is magically transformed—displaying this stirring tribute to animation. Behold spectacular sequences celebrating themes like magic, family, adventure, romance and friendship. Each theme is brought to life through unforgettable moments from beloved films—like Sleeping Beauty, The Incredibles, Coco and many more.
Of course, since we can never lose sight of the fact that it was all started with a mouse, the show fittingly begins and ends with the one-and-only Mickey.
Wonderful World of Animation is typically shown 25 minutes prior to the theme park’s nightly fireworks display, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular. The nighttime projection show is short and family friendly making it great for passing the time prior to the fireworks spectacular beginning.
Wonderful World of Animation Viewing Locations
Wonderful World of Animation is best viewed from directly in front of the Chinese Theater. A location with a straight-on view of the theater is best found right between the large central stage and the big projection towers that flank Hollywood Boulevard. This viewing location is perfect because the nightly fireworks show is also best seen the same location from right in front of the Chinese Theater. It’s like getting a two-for-one viewing location for nighttime spectaculars! This area also makes for an easy exit from the park straight out the main gates once the nighttime entertainment has ended for the day.
