Disney100: The Exhibition - Now Open

Disney100: The Exhibition

Created for the 100-year celebration of The Walt Disney Company, Disney100: The Exhibition takes guests on a journey through the beloved stories that have been dazzling fans since 1923.   
Experience ten imaginatively themed galleries featuring moving stories, a rich musical score, and unique behind-the-scenes glimpses into the creation of the company’s most popular characters, films, shows, and attractions—and marvel at more than 250 treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, including artifacts, artworks, models and drawing reproductions, plus costumes, props, and other memorabilia—all spanning 100 years of Disney history. 
Highlights include the earliest sketches of Mickey Mouse and original animation drawings from his debut in Steamboat Willie (1928), Disney Legend Bette Midler’s spell book from Hocus Pocus (1993), visual development art from iconic animated films like The Little Mermaid (1989), The Princess and the Frog (2009) and Frozen (2013), and the Black Panther costume from the 2018 film. 

“This incredible exhibit will take guests on a remarkable journey from those earliest days into Disney’s dazzling future using seamless technology, a rich musical score, and—of course—treasures from the Walt Disney Archives collection.” Becky Cline, Director of the Walt Disney Archives 
“A visual and auditory feast”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

Know Before You Go
  • Timed Tickets

    • To limit the amount of people inside the exhibition, this is a timed-entry exhibit. You may only enter at the specific time you chose when purchasing the tickets.

    • Please note, at high-volume times like weekends and holidays, it may take up to 25 minutes to enter the exhibit.

    • Do not arrive early to the exhibit entrance, as that will only add to your time in the queue.

    • For daytime ticket holders, you may arrive to the museum anytime after 9:30am to experience the General Museum before entering the exhibition.

  • Stroller Policy

    • Strollers are welcome in the museum. However, large toddler carriers, double-sided strollers, and jogging strollers are not allowed in special exhibition galleries due to space constraints. 

  • Field Trip Season Alert

    • Spring has sprung and students are visiting! To avoid busy field trip times, we recommend visiting after 1pm Monday–Friday.
