    Is the Animation Academy still going on?

    Hello, Erin!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    The last character at Animation Academy was drawn back in 2015. The entire area where Animation Academy took place inside Disney's Hollywood Studios has now been taken over by Chewbacca and all of his friends at Star Wars Launch Bay

    I do have some MAGICAL news for you! I am very happy to inform you that there are drawing classes available to guests of Walt Disney World at Disney's Art of Animation Resort! While the times are subject to change, classes are available starting at 9:00 am for 30-minute sessions, and the last session will finish at 4:00 pm. My kids participated in this drawing class last year, and they LOVED it. Don't you just love happy endings?

    If you have other questions, please let us know! We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
