Special Exhibition Venues

In addition to its main galleries, which house the museum's permanent collection, The Walt Disney Family Museum has several special exhibition spaces. On the lower level of the main building, the Theater Gallery and Lower Lobby Gallery host small-scale, rotating special exhibitions; these exhibitions are typically free to the general public, or admission to them is included with main museum admission. The recommended viewing time for these exhibitions is generally 30 minutes. 

The museum's larger special exhibition space, the Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall, is located in a separate building—just behind the main museum—and houses more extensive temporary exhibitions. Special exhibition admission fees vary; the recommended viewing time for exhibitions in the Diane Disney Miller Exhibition Hall is generally 30 minutes to one hour. To access the exhibition hall from the main building, exit through the cafe doors and follow the ramp to your right; the sidewalk will guide you across the back parking lot to the exhibition hall. 

Please visit our Exhibitions page for more information about the museum's current, upcoming, and past special exhibitions. 

Ticketing Policies

There are no refunds and no exchanges on tickets purchased. 

Ticketed Programs & Events

  • For ticketed programs and events, there is a limit of six* tickets available for purchase per household, unless otherwise stated; this includes non-paid ticketed programs and events. The museum reserves the right to void tickets purchased in excess of this limit.

*Please Note: In some instances, the museum will impose lower limits based on capacity of venue and/or special considerations.

  • Due to the overwhelming popularity of programs events at the museum, tickets often sell out quickly. The museum does not collect waitlists for programs or events; however, if tickets to a sold-out program or event become available, they will be released for purchase on the museum’s website at 10am the day before the event.
  • If you have purchased tickets to a program or event and are no longer able to attend, you may donate your tickets back to the museum for resale. In order to do so, please send an email to tickets@wdfmuseum.org by 10am two days before the program or event** and indicate the confirmation number you received when purchasing the tickets within the body of the email. 

**Please Note: After 10am two days prior to the program or event, we can no longer accept tickets for donation. Additionally, tickets for donation will NOT be accepted over the phone or in person at any time. We cannot accept donations of tickets over the phone or in person.

More Information for Military Personnel

As shown above, general admission is free year-round for active and retired military personnel, their spouses, and dependents with valid ID. The museum also participates in the Blue Star Families program, which grants all active military free admission for themselves plus five (5) additional guests—six (6) people total—between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
