Disney Immersive Experience Opens in Nashville

The work of all the great Disney animators and performers come to life in a 360-degree immersive environment.

Walt Disney Animation Studios has teamed up with Lighthouse Immersive Studios, the producers of the Immersive Van Gogh, to develop the Disney Animation Immersive Experience, which debuts in Nashville starting Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023 through Sunday, May 14, 2023. Tickets start at $39.99 and are on sale now here.

Creating iconic animated stories for all ages for nearly a century, Walt Disney Animation Studios will join forces with North Americaโ€™s top creator of experiential projection exhibitions to present the music and artistry within Disney Animationโ€™s canon of films โ€” from hits of today like Encanto, Zootopiaย andย Frozen, to all of the classics includingย The Lion King, Peter Panย andย Pinocchio. Audiences will feel like theyโ€™ve entered the incredible worlds of beloved Disney characters.

Lighthouse Immersive founder Corey Ross describes how the exhibit begins: โ€œJust imagine journeying through Zootopia with Judy Hopps, diving to the ocean floor with Ariel, flying on a magic carpet with Aladdin, and stepping into Casita with Mirabel and the family Madrigal. This is where the Disney Animation Immersive Experience will take you.โ€

โ€œThe collaboration with Lighthouse Immersive is a first for Disney Animation,โ€ said Clark Spencer, president, Walt Disney Animation Studios.ย โ€œItโ€™s a dream to bring the best of animated storytelling together with the top experts in the immersive art experience. We canโ€™t wait for audiences around the world, of all ages, to experience the great moments from our legacy of feature films in this incredible way.โ€

The exhibit will be at Lighthouse ArtSpace Nashville, located at 4416 Ridgefield Way. The public can sign up to receive more information at
