The Magic of Disney Animation attraction officially ceased operating on July 12, 2015 after Disney's Hollywood Studios closed its doors to Guests for the day.
This former attraction celebrated some of the most beloved animated movies produced by the Walt Disney Company in the past, while also allowing Guests to preview upcoming movies and to meet quite a few of their favorite characters (including Mickey, Minnie, Baymax, and more). Enjoy this tour of the exhibit:
