    Allow yourself an extra hour than you planned - everything is so interesting and you won't be able to stop reading. Special Also, Exhibit is in a separate building that nobody will tell you about.

    Can't deny the final hall after Walt's death brought me to tears. Just a straight hallway with both walls lined with sad headlines and weeping characters. Truly moving.

    Wonderful museum to read all about Walt Disney. If there was anyone who embraced the latest technology (of the era), it was Walt. Fascinating to read how he was ahead of the curve.

    Absolutely fantastic, but be aware that this museum is about WALT DISNEY as a person & about the world he created. Not the best place for kids, but a must for anyone who wants to learn about Disney.

    Great place to visit - has a great layout filled with lots of interesting things. Not a museum about Mickey Mouse but the life of Walt Disney) the person, so not the best place to bring kids.
