    I have a 22 year old Autistic son who is very into the animation. He would love to meet the animators and see the studio at Disney World. Is that a possibility? and if so how?

    Hello Dawn and thank you for bringing such a great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    There's nothing more magical as a parent than being able to make your child's dreams and wishes come true and I have some great news to share in that all Guests are welcome take part in animation drawing classes which are held at the larger than life and fantastically themed Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  
    Guests can take part in these fun art sessions which take place most days at 11am, 2pm and 5pm in the lobby area of Disney's Art of Animation Resort; upon arrival to the Resort it's advisable to double check class availability at the artist station. Incidentally you may also wish to take a peek at the Art of Animation Drawing Class Facebook page which sometimes features Guest's recent artwork. 
    Plus I wondered if your son might enjoy taking a peek inside the Art of Disney store in Future World at Epcot in addition to perhaps attending the Epcot International Festival of the Arts which takes place January 12th to February 19th 2018; this imaginative arts festival provides Guests with the magical opportunity to attend art seminars and hands-on workshops with Disney artists and experts. 
    As Walt Disney famously said "It all started with a Mouse!' and I'm absolutely positive it would make Walt's heart happy to see Guests like your dear son enjoying bringing his beloved Disney Characters to life in an animation drawing class. 
    Wishing you a magical upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. 
    Have a great Disney day.
