"According to unofficial sources, and yet to be confirmed as of the writing of this article, Walt Disney: One Man's Dream is also scheduled to close along with the Magic of Disney Animation or shortly thereafter. This attraction, which was designed to be a temporary exhibition to coincide with the 100 Years of Magic celebration at Walt Disney World, has stayed open many years beyond the original intention. As anyone can tell you, the attraction is sparsely visited and the final theater show is lucky to see 10% of the seats filled at any given point during operating hours."

It's a sad thing to see Disney effectively 'forget' to celebrate what got them into everyone's hearts in the first place and that it was all really kickstarted by a man and a mouse. Animation has been the mainstay of everything Disney throughout its history, even with the move to CGI and buying out Pixar.

I really hope they decide to re-house it elsewhere, even if its in a more condensed attraction with the academy and one man's dream together. It might not be a widely visited attraction, but One Man's Dream is the only place to get an overview of how Disney came to Florida

For whatever Hollywood Studios becomes, I would hope they do acknowledge that it's more than just about the parks and Frozen - Disney has a great roster of brands now and it makes sense to use them in a way that helps celebrate all things Disney.

If they moved One Man's Dream over to Disney Springs (as a free exhibit), I bet it would get more traffic than it would in any park.
