Highlights of Walt Disney Presents: One Man’s Dream

At one point in time, this exhibit was tucked away in a corner of Disney’s Hollywood Studios which was off the beaten path and had to be a destination to be seen. Today, you literally have to walk past Walt Disney Presents One Man’s Dream to go to Toy Story Land!

Just a couple quick note before I start going through my highlights, because this is about setting expectations.

Displays and exhibitions change constantly within this space. Day to day and week to week, there’s no way to keep this up to date because it’s a show piece for everything that The Walt Disney Company is doing.

Also, with this article specifically….everything is behind glass, so please take the photos as a starting point and realize that when you’re looking at stuff in person – it’ll blow your mind!


From Main Street USA to Peter Pan’s Flight, the number of models that are available for guests to look at would make any Disney fan’s vacation!

One of the exhibits that always makes me feel nostalgic is the original Mouseketeers costume and other show artifacts. This was a piece of tv history that was so instrumental to the original Disney brand that it’s just awesome to see in person!

When the Art of Disney Animation closed to make way for Star Wars Launch Bay, we lost the ability to meet certain characters. Then there was a little construction and a meet & greet was established within Walt Disney Presents. From Star Lord & Groot to Monsters Inc, there’s nothing but potential with this space!

Walt Disney was a visionary. From theme parks to movies and entertainment as a whole, this one man brought the idea of dreams and magic into our lives.

Seeing something like his office, multi-pane camera or anything from his era…it’s all part of the reason why this exhibition is a must-see at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
