I remember my first time watching The Lion King when I was a kid on a TV that was the size of my monitor. Now, at the Immersive Disney Animation, you and I can relive our favourite Disney movies in a larger-than-life format at the Immersive Disney Animation exhibition at Marina Bay Sands.

From now till 31 December 2023, you can watch clips from classics like The Little Mermaid and modern hits like Frozen on a panoramic 360° screen. There are also photo ops with Anna and Elsa as well as a peek at what it takes for the Disney animators to create the films we’ve grown up with.

Ticket prices: $33/pax (Basic), $43/pax (Premium), $73/pax (VIP)
