ATLANTA - Immersive Disney experience to open in Atlanta:
You’ve seen the movies. You know the songs. And you absolutely love the characters.
Now, the magical worlds created by Walt Disney Animation Studios are coming to life in a way Atlanta audiences have never seen before.
Tickets are officially available for "Immersive Disney Animation," a high-tech immersive experience set to open in Atlanta’s Armour Yards in May. Developed by Lighthouse Immersive in collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios, the experience uses projection, sound, and interactive technology to allow visitors to walk (or, in the case of "The Little Mermaid," dive) into the beloved worlds of famed Disney films, from classics like "Peter Pan" to the recent Oscar-winning hit "Encanto." "Immersive Disney Animation" made its world premiere in Toronto in December 2022, and has since opened in several U.S. cities including Cleveland, Nashville, and Detroit.
Tickets for the experience start at $29.99 per person and are available for purchase here. The experience is set to open May 1 at Armour Yards, located at 159 Armor Drive in Atlanta.
This morning on Good Day Atlanta, we got an exclusive preview of Immersive Disney Animation, chatting with Oscar-winner producer J. Miles Dale from inside the Las Vegas experience. Click the video player in this article to check it out!
Savoy Automobile Museum:
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same could be said about automobiles.
"Every car has a story," says Tom Shinall, director of development at Cartersville’s Savoy Automobile Museum. "This museum is special because it is multi-generational. It doesn’t matter young or old; coming in, there’s a connection point to cars."
Savoy Automobile Museum opened in December 2021, and has since drawn visitors from around the world with its staggering collection of cars and packed schedule of special programs. Located on a nearly 40-acre property not far from I-75, the museum contains five galleries, four of which feature rotating exhibits and one of which showcases cars from the museum’s permanent collection.
Opening next week — just in time for spring break — is a special exhibit called "75 Years of Porsche," which includes memorable cars from the company’s 75 years in business. Student-built automobiles from Georgia Tech will be highlighted in an exhibit opening in May, and in June, the museum will unveil an exhibit called "Haul of Fame," showcasing iconic American-made pickup trucks.
Savoy Automobile Museum is located at 3 Savoy Lane in Cartersville. Regular hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays through Sundays, and general admission is $15 for adults and $5 for youth ages 3 to 12. For more information on visiting the museum, click here.
