The Magic of Disney Animation reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for The Magic of Disney Animation, a walk through in Animation Courtyard at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Written by Robert Niles
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.
definitely worth the 30 minutes. - Morgan Flay
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
