Next up was at Animation Station. This building has character meet and greets, a walk through exhibit featuring animation cels, props, etc. and some hands on activities including: discovering what character you are most like, creating a soundtrack for a Disney movie scene or adding splashes of color to a Disney animated scene.
But the real hidden gem inside the Magic of Disney Animation is Animation Academy. In this interactive, 20-minute drawing class a Disney artist will teach you how to draw a Disney Character. I was a little skeptical about this, since I can barely draw a stick figure. But, I decided to give it a try. Once again, Disney worked its magic and the next thing I knew, I had drawn Dopey all on my own! I was so excited about my accomplishment, that I took another class later that day. Since then, I make a point to stop at the Magic of Disney Animation at least once every trip.
So, if you’re like me and just pass by this attraction when you’re at Hollywood Studios, I highly suggest you stop in next time.
