    Are there any drawing activities my daughters (13 and 9) can attend whilst in WDW in August? My teenager is a very keen artist and I would like to arrange something for her as I have arranged other things for my youngest's birthday whilst we are there.

    Hi Angela,

    It sounds like you have a budding artist in your family...how wonderful! If your daughter wishes to practice her craft during your upcoming vacation, I am happy to report that Disney's Art of Animation Resort offers drawing classes. Disney animators lead each class, providing instruction on how to draw and sketch familiar Disney characters in a fun and interactive session suitable for all ages. Currently classes are offered at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. daily and are held in the children's playroom located adjacent to the front desk in the main lobby.

    Angela, my family has participated in these classes many times, and we all have a great time. Each guest also gets to take home their drawing afterwards as a special souvenir. If your teenage daughter likes to draw, I expect this class will be right up her alley, and your entire family will likely want to join in on the fun as well.

    In the past I have purchased my children sketch books providing instruction on how to draw Disney animated characters from the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom. This may also make for a nice souvenir for your daughter which she can work on at home following your trip. If your daughter has aspirations to use her talents in a professional manner, and perhaps one day work for Disney, you may also wish to treat her to a meal with a Disney Imagineer.

    Angela, I wish your family a wonderful upcoming holiday this month at Walt Disney World, and a very happy upcoming birthday to your youngest!

    Magically Yours,
