This showcase will immerse visitors in the world of Disney, illustrating how its iconic characters are shaped through the artistry and creativity of its costumes. The exposition is making its first worldwide appearance outside of Disney’s D23.

Featuring more than 70 original pieces and spanning more than 6,000 square feet of museum space, the presentation explores the vision, process, and craft used to create the costumes worn by some of the biggest names in entertainment.
