Before we bid a fond farewell to the Disney treasures hanging on our gallery walls, we take a look back at some of the reviews, memories and good vibes inspired by our blockbuster exhibition.

We went to see the Disney exhibition, and it was amazing 😍. Granted, we're big Disney fans, but even if you're not, I'm sure you'll find it captivating. It's a behind-the-scenes look into the art of animation that makes you realise how much effort and talent are involved.

Went for the film exhibit and the Disney showcase for our first visit to ACMI, and was thoroughly impressed by both installations. Great layouts, engaging displays, beautiful display spaces and friendly staff who were helpful in recommending how to navigate the different installations on offer without being overbearing. Fantastic experience and we will definitely be back.

If you've ever enjoyed a Disney movie you will just love this exhibition, from Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, Wreck It Ralph, Frozen, Mulan, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Tangled just to name a few πŸ‘πŸ‘

Wonderful Disney exhibition which has been set up beautifully... I loved every second.

Went here on Thursday for the Disney exhibition. Loved learning about the history of Disney and how far film and animation has come since the 1920s! There was lots of space inside the exhibit so you could take your time to read and watch the displays without feeling rushed. We spent about 1.5 hours in the Disney exhibit, then we went to the ACMI free area which had so much to see and do! Would definitely recommend seeing the Disney exhibit while it’s here.
