Hey Thrill Seekers,
Today we’ve received confirmation The Magic of Disney Animation at Hollywood Studios is set to close. The Magic of Animation will officially close on the 12th July 2015 to make way for a yet unannounced experience.
As one of the original offering when MGM Studios opened in 1989 the internet has been hit with a smallish wave of “un no’s” as the announcement sinks in. The attraction gave visitors the opportunity to discover how Disney characters are brought to life during a 9 minute film starring Mushu from Mulan, plus a hands-on exhibit.
The Magic of Disney Animation takes place inside the same building where several classic Disney animated films were created, including:
- Lilo & Stitch
- Brother Bear
The area was also used for character meet and greets. Although its sad to see iconic attractions close, Disney do have to look towards the future and with a very high profile film set to open this year perhaps we’ll see Hollywood Studios begin to build a Star Wars themed attractions?
