Special Programs

In addition to regular scheduled events–Animate Your Night, Talks and Panels, Film Screenings, Learn from the Masters and Open Studio–The Walt Disney Museum also hosts Special Programs. Some are developed in partnership with community organizations, while others reflect directly on the Core Collection and the rotation of special exhibitions.

As with all of our offerings, we seek to activate the legacy of Walt Disney and provide visitors the chance to explore their own creativity and potential as collaborators, producers, creators and innovators.
