A museum on the man behind the 'happiest place on earth' Mar 15, 2013
Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream is a museum, located in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Worth checking out for those interested in learning more about the man behind the mouse, and how he made it possible with theme parks.

The museum tells the story about the man himself, and his start in animation, starting with cartoon shorts. From shorts, Walt Disney went on to feature films, and later, to theme parks. The part on films is brief and quick, as the museum focuses a lot more on the theme parks. Makes sense, I guess, since you are at a theme park. It does continue on, after Disney’s death in 1966, and how the Disney Company grew, buying more companies and building theme parks around the world.

The museum has artifacts from past attractions, some of which, I remember. Also on display, Walt Disney’s desk, a model of Jungle Cruise, and the models of the Disney parks around the world, among others. In the end, there is a short film of the same name, narrated by Julie Andrews. An okay film, but not a must see.

A nice museum, even with more focus on the theme parks part than the animation part. And it’s a nice place to cool off, as it is air-conditioned. Plus you can go in and out whenever you want.

Included in park admission.
