Virtual Events & Classes at The Walt Disney Family Museum

The Walt Disney Family Museum, San Francisco

San Francisco's Walt Disney Family Museum (WDFM) may be temporarily closed to the public, but that doesn't mean they aren't continuing to provide wonderful public programs and classes for all ages! As part of their contribution to the global #MuseumFromHome campaign, they're offering some fantastic online programs for families. Get a chance to ask a question to a Disney legend in a Zoom webinar, learn to design animated characters and comics, and much more!

Here's a rundown of their current virtual programs. Space is limited for most programs, so advance registration is required; register for virtual events at
