Disney's animation building contains multiple hands-on exhibits, but no longer any actual animation production. Start with a 10-minute show where a Disney animator and Mushu from Mulan illustrate the basics of animation. Then try animating for yourself, at one of the hands-on exhibits in the main hall, or by learning to draw a Disney character in the Animation Academy. Character meet-and-greets also are available inside the animation building's main hall.

This is not a working animation studios anymore and now is a testament of mismanagement and lack of quality story telling at Disney and because of that should be torn down. - O T

Not a fan and if your time is limited in the park one to skip - Tom Cunningham

For all the art lovers, this is a DEFINITE MUST SEE and DO NOT SKIP! The line was long from what I remember, but I was greatly enthused with all the paintings on the walls. It's like Disney's mini museum! I particularly had a "magical" experience here when the Disney animator who teaches you the character drawing lesson signed my drawing of Mickey and even drew a little Minnie Mouse on it!! - Sarah Durden

Fun show, interesting exhibits, and the art class was very fun. They teach you to draw different characters, so it's worth doing multiple times, if only for the class. - Abagail Bloodworth

A great place to take any Disney or art fan as they will truely be able to appreciate the magic of this attraction. - Brandie S
