Walt Disney World Resort

Walt Disney World has announced the return dates of select entertainment options that have been closed since the start of the pandemic last year.

In August, two fan favorite shows will return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios:

Wonderful World of Animation at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World

On August 1, the cinematic nighttime experience “Wonderful World of Animation,” returns. It uses projection mapping technology to transform the park’s iconic Chinese Theater on a magical journey through more than 90 years of Disney animation.

Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage at Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World

Then on August 15, a tale as old as time will return to Theater of the Stars on Sunset Boulevard with “Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage.” The heartwarming tale of Belle and Beast will once again swirl to life in this lush stage performance, with colorful costumes, gorgeous scenery and the songs you know and love.

Over at Magic Kingdom, August 8 marks the reopening of Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor in Tomorrowland.
