Animation Courtyard

Animation is at the heart of Disney's success, with films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Fantasia wowing several generations of audiences, all over the world.

The Magic of Disney Animation is the home to a number of Disney characters from today and yesteryear, and tomorrow's too. The Magic of Disney Animation attraction takes a look at the development process of an animated character. It also includes interactive games and exhibits, along with meet-and-greet areas for Disney and Pixar characters.

Mickey Avenue, a section of Animation Courtyard, is where you'll find Walt Disney: One Man's Dream, which explores the life and legacy of Walt Disney through photos, models, rare artefacts, and a short biographical film narrated by film legend Julie Andrews. The Courtyard also presents two live shows (mainly geared towards younger children), Playhouse Disney Live on Stage!, which features puppet characters such as the Little Einsteins and Handy Manny, along with the Voyage of the Little Mermaid, featuring glow-in-the-dark puppets, lasers, projectors and water-effects to recreate scenes and songs from The Little Mermaid film.
