Disney to Bring its First Immersive Experience to Nashville

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

Walt Disney Animation Studios is teaming up with Lighthouse Immersive Studios, the producers of the Immersive Van Gogh, to develop the Disney Animation Immersive Experience, which will debut in Nashville on Feb. 9, 2023. Tickets start at $39.99 and go on sale Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 12:30 p.m.

Creating iconic animated stories for all ages for nearly a century, Walt Disney Animation Studios will join forces with North America’s top creator of experiential projection exhibitions to present the music and artistry within Disney Animation’s canon of films — from hits of today like Encanto, Zootopia and Frozen, to all of the classics including The Lion King, Peter Pan and Pinocchio. Audiences will feel like they’ve entered the incredible worlds of beloved Disney characters.

Lighthouse Immersive founder Corey Ross describes how the exhibit begins: “Just 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.”

“The collaboration with Lighthouse Immersive is a first for Disney Animation,” said Clark Spencer, president, Walt Disney Animation Studios. “It’s a dream to bring the best of animated storytelling together with the top experts in the immersive art experience. We can’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.”

The exhibit will be at Lighthouse ArtSpace Nashville, located at 4416 Ridgefield Way. The schedule of openings, on-sale date for tickets and prices will be announced at a future date. The public can sign up to receive more information at disneyimmersive.com.
