Wonderful World of Animation: Photos from Hollywood Studios’ Brand New Nighttime Show!

To help celebrate its 30th anniversary, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has unveiled an all-new projection show called the Wonderful World of Animation! This 15-ish minute show features high definition projections on the Grauman’s Chinese Theater. In this tribute to the past 90 years of animation, you can spot clips from every single Disney Animated Classic and Pixar full-length film!

This brand new show is a wonderful treat for the whole family and I highly recommend it. There are so many characters and movie scenes, you can watch it again and again and always see something new. This trip through the past nine decades of animation is the PERFECT addition to celebrate Disney Hollywood Studios’ 30th Birthday!
