February is awards season and Disney has one its fair share of Academy Awards!  In honor of the contributions Walt Disney Studios has made to cinema, this month we’re looking at a few of the attractions inspired by Oscar-winning films.

In 1947, Song of the South won the Oscar for Best Original Song, and years later inspired Splash Mountain.

In 1968, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film – experience it on The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh!

In 1991, Beauty and the Beast won Best Original Score and Best Original Song – and was the first animated feature to be nominated for the most prestigious Oscar – Best Picture.  25 years later, Enchanted Tales with Belle celebrates this classic romance!

And in 2013, Frozen has a double Oscar win – Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song – we can’t wait to see how they bring the story to life in Frozen Ever After!
