  • Animation Experience

    I am so excited a new version of Animation Academy is coming July 11 in the newly reopened Rafiki's Planet Watch. To keep with the Animal Kingdom theme, the characters drawn will be from Lion King. I really want to draw Simba. Guess I'll be heading by the Wildlife Express back to Rafiki's for some sketching. Here's the article on Disney Parks Blog.

    Oh that sounds wonderful - and finally they're doing Fastpasses for something like this as well, so it's not a case of turning up and hoping to get in. I'm all in favour of this and suspect we'll be using a Fastpass or two on our next visit for this...

      Very cool. I'd do it but I love the characters too much to subject them to my amazingly bad drawing abilities. I followed a Disney YouTube tutorial of how to draw Chip from Beauty and the Beast and lets just say it was his fifth cousin seven times removed that showed up.

        So happy they added this. We loved doing the Animation Academy in DHS. Thank you for pointing it out.

          Will definitely be doing this on our next trip..
          That might sound boring, but I think the boring stuff is the stuff I remember the most.

            Oh, that sounds like fun. I used to love to take part in the Animation Academy tutorials. I'm not an artist at all, but they made it possible to come somewhat close and have fun.

                Oh my goodness, that's classic! Usually that's how I am with drawing, but I've found that mine have come out Ok with some of the recent Disney drawing classes I've been to on the cruise ships.

                  I was excited to hear we'd be able to get FastPasses for this, too. I remember long waits when this was at Studios. I'm excited to add this FP to at least one of our AK days.

                    We used to do the Animation Academy at Studios almost every trip as it was a favorite for Stefanie. I've actually been surprised at how well some of mine have been, though they would never make the cut for making me an animator. Luke's are usually very good.

                      I knew that quite a few of us had loved the Animation Academy, so I had to share the good news.

                        I'm not an artist at all, too, but I'm happy at how my various character drawings have turned out over the years. To be able to do Lion King characters will be so cool!
