Top performers: 10 animated movies that dominated the box office

All movies provide a bit of an escape, but animated films especially add a touch of fantasy to the theater-going experience.

To Infinity: Toy Story Land opening at Disney in Florida

For children of the mid-1990s, Disney’s new Toy Story Land offers the opportunity to visit the imaginary world they grew up in. For their parents, it brings back sweet memories of a magical time of toys and make-believe. And for everyone else, the new theme park land offers a whimsical experience from the moment a nearly 20-foot statue of Sheriff Woody welcomes guests as if they are honorary toys in Andy’s backyard.
