Asher_F, Jan 2022
Great museum! No proof of vaccine required but they did make sure we Wore out masks correctly. Patrons were spaced out so that we felt safe.
Incredible memorable experience
Willie_H, Nov 2021
I didn’t realize Walt Disney, had pioneered so many innovations and breakthroughs, in the animation and in the filming industry. To experience his life time achievements in a single day was all inspiring.
Amazing staff, amazing exhibits
Amanda_J, Oct 2021
There was so much more content this museum had to offer than we originally thought. We spent 2 hours here and loved every minute, an insanely interesting museum and look into Walt’s history. Highly recommend.
Unique and well organized

Great place to go
Lizbeth_R, Jul 2021
Such a great place. Walt Disney was a genius and visiting the Museum gives me a better understanding of his creations
Almina_B, Jul 2021
The museum itself was INCREDIBLE!! Every display and historical information were well put together and organized. The staff from entrance to all the way to exit were ALL FRIENDLY and ON-TOP if their job. Meaning, they greet, have very proper way of speaking to all visitors, stay around to make sure people follow rules and kept mask on for SAFETY, guided visitors to right directions, and they were simply NICE workers and showed they loved what they do. The manager at Walt Disney name Christine was phenomenal. We’ve explained our situation of getting lost in the city, which explained how we got there late than scheduled time we originally set; she understood our situation and worked with us. These truly showed how she valued customers and what type of manger or leader she is. This reflected how she run the business with great skills for people and more than sure how she deals and trains her Walt Disney staffs. Overall, I was very pleased with the museum’s displays and history, and the ENTIRE WONDERFUL workers and manager ( Christine). Thank you ALL! Almina
The Disney Story is Fascinating!
Jeffrey_F, May 2021
It is a wonderful property to visit. The museum itself is full of fascinating Disney history presented chronologically. It gave you a real sense of the overall Disney story with lots of insights on little known aspects of the family's life. It takes more than 90 minutes to go through. If you really take it all in it would be a three-hour visit. There were some limitations due to COVID restrictions, and while they were probably a little too cautious, overall, they handled it well.
Walt Disney Museum and special exhibit.
Lyn_M, Dec 2019
Wonderful museum. Covers so much of the history of Walt Disney from his early beginnings to present. Wonderful that it has a nice home in the Presidio. We also did the special exhibit which closes in January. Well worth the time and the price.
Disney Family Museum
Ruth W, Aug 2019
The beginning of the museum says the average visitor spends two and a half to three hours at the museum. We were there seven hours! Fascinating looks at one of our American icons of ingenuity. It was also great to see actual examples of the equipment developed by Disney and his company that advanced the development of animated film, like the multiplane film machine.
