Immersive Disney Animation is a nationwide experience where you will be in the center of some of Disney’s greatest animated achievements. I attended the Las Vegas experience and here is what I thought of it all.
The Immersive Disney Animation experience is primarily a 360-degree projection show that artfully combines many of Disney’s most iconic animated films through visuals, music, and practical effects. While some moments are strictly involving a singular film, most of the show creates unique collage-like scenes to highlight as many films as they can. It is both visually and emotionally diverse, creating a compelling experience for the young and young at heart.
Some highlights from the show include I See The Light from Tangled with the iconic lanterns casting a warm glow on the room, A Whole New World from Aladdin which takes on a tour of so many magical worlds like Atlantica from The Little Mermaid and Olympus from Hercules, Poor Unfortunate Souls from The Little Mermaid that highlights iconic villains, and Show Yourself from Frozen 2 that gave us Elsa’s ice magic on screen while smoke-filled bubbles filled the room.
I am not one that gets emotionally reactive toward things very often, but I definitely got teary-eyed while watching the show, particularly following the climax. I applaud Disney for compiling the various scenes and settings in a way to really brings us highs and lows, making the whole experience emotionally compelling and not just an hour of the happiest moments and scenes.
That isn’t to say the brighter and happier moments aren’t just as good as the emotionally complex ones. It is really hard to not enjoy Under The Sea playing with colorful imagery and bubbles filling the room. But those scenes are made more enjoyable thanks to the diversity of moments and feelings we have.
I will admit that getting anything above a basic ticket is not worth it, at least for the Las Vegas rendition. We attended with the Premium Plus tickets, which gave us seat cushions, interactive wristbands, and Disney animation prints of our choice, but I’d argue that none of those are necessary to fully enjoy the experience. The show isn’t long enough to warrant the seat cushion honestly and while the wristband is kind of cool, you’ll be paying attention to the show over your wrist. These things could have more impact in the different locations since there are differences in the actual spaces.
Overall, Immersive Disney Animation is a beautiful and charming experience that succeeds at immersing you into these iconic worlds and experiences. All Disney fans should go to this experience at least once and since it is happening all across the USA, it’s more accessible.
