    We are coming in November. Is art of animation offering the drawing classes again?

    Hi Amy!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so happy to help a fellow Tar Heel state resident and my own namesake prepare for an artful vacation at Walt Disney World Resort this November.

    I absolutely love Disney's Art of Animation Resort from the larger-than-life character displays around the property, down to the giant sketch wall and colorful light display behind the lobby desk. The whole space is so bright and cheery, you can't help but be drawn in. Did you know that you can bring the lobby sketch wall to life using the Play Disney Parks app? Be sure to have your location settings enabled and you should receive a push notification when you're in the correct area to play Stories of the Enchanted Gallery. It's a fun activity for any budding artist or Disney Character lover.

    I couldn't seem to find any schedule information online for the Teach to Draw classes at Art of Animation so I put in a quick call to ask about current offerings. The helpful Cast Member I spoke with unfortunately didn't have any additional information on that particular class, but did let me know that a painting class is currently available on Tuesdays from 12-2 p.m. You'll be able to follow along with the artist and create your own masterpiece. Keep in mind that schedules and offerings are subject to change, so be sure to double-check when you arrive in November. You'll be able to register with a recreation Cast Member if this activity is being offered at that time.

    If you have your heart set on a drawing experience be sure to stop by The Animation Experience at Conservation Station at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park during your visit. You'll follow along while a Disney animator gives step-by-step instructions to draw a popular character. Each session lasts about 25 min so it's a perfect way to take a break and rest your feet in between the other attraction and entertainment offerings. Be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App to check the daily schedule. You'll find timing details listed under Attractions.

    If you're looking for more ways to bring art to life during your vacation you may also consider the Spanish Mosaic Art class at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. My buddy Elaine recently made her own Mickey mosaic and I'm only a little bit jealous of her creation. 

    I hope this helps Amy, and I hope you are inspired to make your own masterpiece while also making some magical memories this fall. Feel free to stop back and ask us more questions as you prepare for your trip!

    Adventure is out there!
