“Wonderful World of Animation” is an all-new nighttime experience debuting just in time for Disney’s Hollywood Studios 30th Anniversary on May 1st, 2019. The new experience will take guests through a journey of 90 years of Disney Animation projected on the Chinese Theater and supported by various effects like pyro, fire, lasers, and more.

From the Disney Parks Blog:

“Wonderful World of Animation” begins with the one-and-only Mickey Mouse, as the park’s iconic Chinese Theater transforms into the black-and-white world of the classic short film, “Mickey’s Gala Premiere.” From there, the show bursts forth in full color, celebrating Mickey’s starring role in “Fantasia” as it launches into sequences filled with magic, family, adventure, romance, villainy and friendship. Each theme is brought to life through unforgettable moments from Disney and Pixar animated films, from “Coco” and “The Incredibles” to “Sleeping Beauty” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”

Disney has shared a behind the scenes look at the making of “Wonderful World of Animation” and stay tuned to WDWNT.com where we’ll have a full video for you as soon as the new experience debuts on Wednesday, May 1st.
