    Hi we are coming down on Sunday and my son really wants to do the behind the senses tour. He just finished the book about Walt. And is really wanting to take the drawing lesson class. So I'm trying to get some information before we get there for these

    Hi Chris! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by to ask us your planning questions about visiting the Disneyland Resort.

    Oh boy! Your vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth starts today! There's nothing quite as magical as knowing you're at Walt Disney's original theme park and walking where he once walked. As a huge fan of Walt Disney, I highly recommend Walt's Main Street Story Tour at Disneyland Park if you can reserve it. This walking tour down Main Street, U.S.A. is packed with history, and the visit to Walt's apartment is something I will never forget. You can check for availability based on the date you would like to visit and the number of guests in your party.

    At Disney California Adventure Park, you can visit the Animation Academy in Hollywood Land. You don't need reservations to visit the Animation Academy, however, you will need a Theme Park Ticket and Theme Park Reservation to enter Disney California Adventure Park. Drawing classes occur every 30 minutes throughout the day. My tip is to arrive at the Animation Academy first thing and take a photo of the schedule. If there are specific characters your son is interested in, I suggest planning your day according to the classes he would like to take. While you're in that building, be sure to visit the Sorcerer’s Workshop so he can create his own animation in the Magic Mirror Realm. 

    Chris, I hope this information helps with your planning. We can't wait for you to be our guest, and I'm wishing you a wonderful vacation filled with the magic Walt Disney created. Please stop by planDisney again when you're ready to plan another Disney Parks vacation. We would love to help!

    See ya real soon!
