Inside, Guests can see childhood photos of Walt, as well as photos of his boyhood home, his family, and even his earliest work. There are tiny-scale models of some of the attractions inside the parks, and you can even take a look at Walt’s multi-plane camera that stands in a glass tower in the middle of one of the exhibition rooms.

Now cruise enthusiasts can take in a brand-new attraction inside Walt Disney Presents–an exhibition of a different kind.

In celebration of the upcoming delivery and maiden voyage of Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, the new exhibit takes a look at the history of the cruise line and its fleet and also gives Guests a glimpse into the making of the fleet’s newest member, slated to set out on its maiden voyage in summer 2022, thanks to never-before-seen artifacts and photos.

In addition to these, Guests will also enjoy the following items inside the exhibit:

  • A life-size maquette of the Cinderella statue that will grace the Grand Hall of the ship
  • An intricately detailed, 5 1/2-foot scale model of the ship
  • Replicas of the Disney Animation maquettes that will adorn the dining rooms at 1923, an elegant family restaurant inspired by the golden age of Hollywood
  • A scale concept model used to design the larger-than-life stern statue of Rapunzel
