Journey into Narnia: Creating the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was a theme park show that operated at Disney's Hollywood Studios from December 9, 2005 - January 1, 2008. It was a stand and watch event, including the White Witch and an exit area containing several costumes from the film.

Visitors to the Journey into Narnia show at Disney's Hollywood Studios park were led into an antechamber with a Wardrobe prop "entrance." The audience was then led through the wardrobe doors into a large room adorned with flocked pine trees, a lamppost, a large tree illuminated with fiber optics, and a large (150") projection television screen. The screen displayed a greatly abridged version of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

At a key point in the summarized version of the film, the White Witch appeared on a terrace above the crowd and read a few lines from the film. The abbreviated version of the film then continued on the screen, leading into a short preview of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, the second Narnia movie, released in 2008. None of the material shown on-screen was exclusive--it could all be found on the existing DVD of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and previews of Prince Caspian available online.

After standing and watching this for approximately 10-15 minutes, the audience was then released into a hallway with several costumes from the film before exiting to the outside.

This attraction closed permanently on January 2, 2008 so it could be converted into the new attraction, Journey into Narnia: Prince Caspian, which officially opened on June 27, 2008.
