This was a nice break from running around the park, waiting in lines, and riding rides. Basically, it’s a 30-minute low-tech art lesson where a Disney artist talks participants of all ages through drawing a familiar character. In our case, it was the face of...More

We really had a great time learning how to draw Disney characters. The sit in artists are great and are able to teach simple techniques to get your drawing to somewhat resemble the thing it's supposed to be. We went twice during our trip and...More

This is a fantastic attraction where they teach you how to draw a Disney character. It's a really great way to cool off for half an hour and get away from the busyness of the park. We completed two of these and they were both...More

I love the Animation Academy. There is plenty of seating and my kids and I get to make great memories. It's always fun trying to draw a beloved character and you get to keep your sketch at the end.

Great, fun experience for the whole family. Even if you aren't an artist. They go slow and explain things in a way everyone can understand. Fun to see what other peoples pictures turn out to look like. A keepsake piece of art work.

The drawing classes are lots of fun. My wife and I go again and again. Note they post the schedule of characters ahead of time, so make sure to take a picture of that at the start of your day.

I had been to Disney many times and have never stopped in to this workshop. Totally fun. A great place to sit and get your creative side on. Wonderful instruction and good for elementary age to adults.
