On Family Access Day, The Walt Disney Family Museum invites children with disabilities and children with special health care needs to enjoy the museum's galleries, free-of-charge, with their friends and families. Our doors open one hour early for qualifying families, so that they can enjoy a quiet environment before the museum opens to the general public. In addition to exploring the galleries and learning about animation, innovation, and inspiration through Walt Disney’s life story, guests can work on art projects, make stop-motion films, and watch a selection of Pixar shorts in our Theater.
Later, join us for a special screening of Life, Animated (2016), a documentary which chronicles the extraordinary life of a boy with autism, and how the magic of Disney films transforms his world. Additionally, Family Access Day guests will have the chance to visit the Lower Lobby Gallery to see our new special exhibition, Now Showing: Walt Disney’s Mickey Mouse, which showcases film posters and lobby cards featuring the world’s favorite cartoon mouse as a teaser for our larger, upcoming special exhibition Mickey Mouse: From Walt to the World (May 2019).
