    We are staying at the Port Orleans Riverside in July. I heard there are free art classes at the Art of Animation resort. Is this true and can all resort guests use this option? How can I schedule this? Thanks!

    Greetings, Jamie, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You're going to love staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside a scenic Water Taxi ride away from the newly designed Disney Springs. Don't forget to familiarize yourself with Disney Resort hotel Guest Amenities in preparation for your trip.

    We loved our recent visit to Disney's Art of Animation Resort which you can reach by catching your resort Water Taxi directly to Disney Springs, head over to the Town Center Bus Loop for Disney's Art of Animation bus. 

    Sketching activities unique to Disney's Art of Animation Resort are the "Sketch Artist of the Day" affording children the opportunity to sketch their favorite Disney animated character, present it to the Front Desk by 4:00 PM and the winning sketch is unveiled in the lobby at 5:45 PM (subject to change). You can request art supplies from the Front Desk. They also offer a fun "Draw Class" with an actual Disney Artist who teaches children how to draw Disney animated characters. The times (subject to change) are 11:00 AM, 2:00 PM, and 5:00 PM and it takes place in the playroom near the Front Desk. Please inquire at Disney's Art of Animation Resort's Front Desk for an accurate schedule and detailed information in the event of any program eligibility, changes or cancellations.

    Remember to customize your vacation through My Disney Experience online and mobile app to optimize your visit.

    Best Disney Wishes Jamie~
