The launch date for Disney’s “Wonderful World of Animation”, the newest nightly spectacle that will light up the skies above the upcoming Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, has been announced.
The “Wonderful World of Animation” will have its grand opening on May 1, the 30th anniversary of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The new event, which will be a dramatic evening projection display incorporating the most modern projection technology, was first announced by Bob Chapek, Chairman of Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products, during “D23’s Destination D: Celebrating Mickey Mouse” in November.
