Walt Disney: One Man's Dream

Walt Disney: One Man's Dream is an exhibit that was installed for the 100 Years of Magic celebration honoring Walt Disney's 100th birthday. The outer part of the exhibit is a collection of rare memorabilia from throughout Walt Disney's life (including his office, which was moved from Disneyland to be part of this exhibit). Recent additions include the actual Abraham Lincoln audioanimatronic used at the 1964 World's Fair as well as an original "it's a small world" model. After viewing this area, guests can move into the theater for a 15-minute film on Walt Disney's life hosted by Julie Andrews.
