If you are a Walt Disney fan you will love this museum. The exhibits were very interactive and informative. Keep in mind there is a lot of reading material. If you are the type of museum goers that don't like reading the labels you will most likely find this place extremely boring. This is also not really a place for younger children. While there were a lot of short movies and hands-on exhibits that younglings might find interesting, the majority of the museum is tailored towards adults. This museum is about Walt Disney's life and not Disney animations or characters.
Some of the layout in this museum is a bit odd. A lot of the long introductory texts were placed right at the entrance of the major galleries. That created a bit of a traffic issue.
It took me about 2 hours to go through the entire museum but it was a bit rushed. I had to skip over a few of the more popular exhibits as the lines are often long. I will budget about 3 hours if you plan to see everything in greater details. The best part in the entire place is the miniature Disneyland.
The $20 entrance fee is a bit expensive. I was also quite disappointed that no photos were allowed inside the museum.
