2019 is here, and it’s going to be a big year for the Walt Disney World Resort. On May 1, 2019, Disney’s Hollywood Studios celebrates its 30th anniversary, and with this milestone comes exciting new experiences. Disney has officially announced a new nighttime spectacular for Disney’s Hollywood Studios that will premiere in May of this year.

Wonderful World of Animation is a new cinematic nighttime experience that will take guests on a magical journey through Disney’s 90-year history of animation – all starting with Mickey Mouse in 1928. Not much information has been released about this new show, but based on concept art, there will be appearances from an array of Disney films.

From classics of the early eras of Disney animation, like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty and Fantasia to the fan favorites of the Disney Renaissance era like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin, this show is sure to delight audiences of all ages!

This new nighttime experience is set to premiere on Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ 30th Anniversary, May 1, 2019. Wonderful World of Animation will play above the soon-to-be Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction that replaced the classic Disney-MGM Studios opening day attraction, Great Movie Ride.

Big things are coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019, and the announcement of this must-see nighttime spectacular is an exciting start to the anniversary year. Other attractions coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios this year include Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy and the much-anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. So if you’ve been waiting to experience all things new at the Most Magical Place on Earth, 2019 is the year to make your way to Walt Disney World.
