Growing up, I found solace in the enchanting tales spun by Disney, and my childhood was animated by the magic of characters like Mickey, Simba, and Ariel. Now, as a parent, witnessing the sparkle in my daughter’s eyes as she experiences the world of Disney for the first time brings back cherished memories.
It is with this shared excitement that I eagerly recommend the highly anticipated exhibition, Immersive Disney Animation, making its first-ever stop in Southeast Asia at Sands Theatre, Marina Bay Sands, from November 18, 2023.
Immersive Disney Animation is presented by Base Entertainment Asia in partnership with Walt Disney Animation Studios.
