    Hi! We will be visiting soon. How can I find out the times of the painting classes at different resorts on a certain day? I know there are more classes than what is listed on the Disney experience on the app.

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Della!

    Thanks for stopping over with a phenomenal Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. You’re as welcome as can be here at planDisney! Oh boy… so very soon, you’ll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready for a vacation filled with enchantment and wonder. I’m thrilled to hear you’re interested in partaking in some of the recreational offerings available at the Disney Resort hotels! As a frequent Walt Disney World Resort visitor, I just love trying something “new to me” on each and every trip.

    Della, I’m excited for you to unleash your inner artist by putting paintbrush to canvas during your upcoming visit! The painting experiences you see listed in the My Disney Experience mobile app are part of the Enchanted Extras Collection. Guests can book these experiences, which have a set schedule, up to 60 days before their arrival. However, some Disney Resort hotels also offer additional arts and crafts opportunities – and these do not have a definitive schedule. Since timing for these activities is subject to change, I recommend taking a peek at the Recreation Activities calendar at your Disney Resort hotel as soon as you arrive. These boards are typically posted in the lobby area of each Resort hotel and will list the days and times of the painting experiences (and more!) offered at each location. I like to snap a photo of these boards when I check in so that I can reference it throughout the week when I have spare time!

    My family is currently returning from a lovely stay at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, and I wanted to point out one of the unique arts and crafts opportunities offered there. At the time of writing, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge offers Tasteful Artistry on Thursdays at 12:00 p.m. inside Artist Point. With this experience, Guests can create a beautiful piece of specialty wooden artwork that makes a wonderful souvenir! Reservations are required for the experience and can be made by calling (689) 282-8375.

    Della, I hope you’ve found this information helpful and I wish you an unforgettable visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! If you have any additional questions throughout your stay, you’re always welcome to revisit us here at planDisney. We’re here to help you make a masterpiece of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Warm wishes,
