The big word out of Burbank is that Disney’s archivists are preparing for a trip to Orlando with the goal of returning the materials on display at One Man’s Dream to the Walt Disney Archives. The reported layout of the Pixar Toy Story Land addition to Disney’s Hollywood Studios appears to require the removal of the building that houses One Man’s Dream.
Believing the rumor to be true, we stopped in and said goodbye the the exhibit with a video tour. To show every detail of One Man’s Dream would take hours. Instead, I’ve tried to capture some of the most rare items, the models, the recreated work spaces, etc. Stuff you’re not likely to see again outside of the Walt Disney Family Museum.
If you like it, please do give us a thumbs up on YouTube:
As you can see in the video, Walt’s Office has already been packed up and it’s on the way to the Walt Disney Family Museum.
One Man’s Dream original opened in Oct, 2001 as part of the 100 Years of Magic Celebration. In addition to memorabilia and artifacts from Walt Disney’s life and legacy, it featured a film narrated by then Disney CEO Michael Eisner. After Eisner stepped down, Disney Legend Julie Andrews provided the narration.
Will you miss One Man’s Dream if it goes away? Or is 15 years long enough for what was a temporary exhibit?
