The Animation Courtyard is a small area off Hollywood Boulevard that includes multiple attractions. The two shows, Voyage of the Little Mermaid and Disney Junior Dance Party! sit across the courtyard from one another. The Magic of Disney Animation walking tour was situated in the back of the courtyard prior to it’s closure in July of 2015. This show was replaced with Star Wars Launch Bay.
Multiple shops are in this area, including Launch Bay Cargo which specializes in Star Wars merchandise. The Studio Shop includes a variety of plush, and often includes items from the latest theatrical release. The In Character Costume Shop offers a selection of Princess Gear.
Beginning in April 2016, Mickey Avenue was reclassified as part of The Animation Courtyard.The remaining attraction (Walt Disney Presents) and nearby kiosks became part of The Animation Courtyard on park maps.
