If becoming part of Tinkerbell, Elsa or Princess Jasmine's worlds was the stuff of your childhood dreams, this exhibition is probably as close as you’re going to get to living out your Disney fantasy realness. 

There's a new exhibition coming to the West End in May in which guests can immerse themselves in a Disney wonderverse - it's not like being in a Disney movie, but arguably better, or at least more age-appropriate. 

Disney's Wonder of Friendship: The Experience is a high-tech, digital fantasy land celebrating a hundred years of Disney friendships - some of the most wholesome and enduring around.

Just to clarify, the exhibition is designed for 'young adults' rather than children.

Running May 12-May 21 at 180 The Strand, it will be the first time people will be able to interact with beloved Disney characters outside a theme park too. 

Groups of pals are encouraged to attend, as while visitors discover more about the likes of Lilo and Stitch or Mickey and Donald, they are encouraged to playfully explore their own friendships too.

There's lots of tech aspects to the show  - it uses Snapchat AR technology, motion sensors and intelligent barcode system ***RFID, which some how will tell you what Disney clique you and your posse are similar to. 

Four themed rooms take up 1,000 sq metres - Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Mickey & Friends and Lilo & Stitch, which are brought to life by scanning QR codes in each room. 

Inspired by Alice in Wonderland and the girl's sense of adventure, the Garden of Mystery's topsy-turvey world asks visitors to journey down the rabbit hole. Here people must trust their friends, not their senses as they pass towering flowers, bread-and-butterflies,  and the queen's card guards and into a haze-filled maze. 

Then dive into island life in Lilo & Stitch's Ohana Bay, taking in the sights, sounds and smells while cruising along on a surfboard.

The jungle is next, where visitors can immerse themselves in the world of Simba, Timon and Pumbaa, complete with bugs, butterflies and Hakuna Matata. 

Guest will also be able to come face to face with life-sized statutes of Mickey, Minne, Donald, Daisy, Goofy and Pluto in the Mickey & Friends Wonderverse, which is motion-sensor triggered.
