The full service restaurant, Garden Grill, serves “all-you-care-to-enjoy” family style character meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival Fun Facts

Did you know?

  • Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival incorporates three shorts: “Get A Horse!,” “Feast, “and “Piper.” These efforts originally debuted in theaters prior to Frozen (2013), Big Hero 6. (2014), and Finding Dory (2016) respectively.
  • Get A Horse! is a must-watch short for fans of Disney history. Through archival audio, the effort incorporates the voice of Walt Disney as Mickey Mouse, and it features the first appearance of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in a Disney short since 1928. Oswald, Walt Disney’s flagship cartoon character before the birth of Mickey, was lost to Universal Studios in 1928 and not reacquired by Disney until 2006, when sportscaster Al Michaels moved from Disney-owned ABC-TV to Universal-owned NBC-TV.
  • In the Magic Eye Theater’s preshow holding area, guests can view concept art from the three shorts and watch clips about the history of animation at both Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar.
  • Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival occupies the Imagination! pavilion’s Magic Eye Theater, which previously housed three other 3D performances: Magic Journeys (1982-1986); Captain EO (1986-1994 and 2010-2015); and Honey, I Shrunk the Audience (1994-2010).
