    Trying to get more information about the drawing class at Art of Animation. Is it worth the trip if you are not staying there? How long does the class go? Do the kids pick what character they draw? I have two boy - 7 and 9 years old.

    Hi Lori!

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is my personal favorite resort to explore and stay in. The family suites offered, always “draws” my family in. Did you know those suites have two bathrooms? The Animation Academy Drawing Class that is located in the lobby is currently only available for resort guests. However, your boys can still take a drawing class at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

    The Animation Experience at Conservation Station is open to guests of all ages. To get here you will need to board the Wildlife Express Train at least 40 minutes prior to the experience start time. You can also schedule FastPass+ for this experience!  Each class is approximately 25 minutes long and the Disney animator will provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to illustrate your own version of a popular Disney character. There is a featured character to be drawn so your kids will not be able to pick which character they draw. Although, the featured character does change periodically, which means your art collection can continue to grow! (Pro-tip: I usually bring a rubber band, paper clip, or plastic bag to keep our masterpieces together and dry).

    Happy drawing!
