Learn how to draw your favorite Disney characters at the Animation Experience located in Animal Kingdom. An experienced Disney animator will lead you through the steps to drawing a different character each session.
Plan ahead by checking the daily schedule for times the experience will start which historically is about every 45 minutes. You will also want to note that you’ll want to board the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch 40 minutes prior to the experience start time.

I’ve always enjoy learning how to draw various Disney characters so a visit to the Animation Experience is a fun one for me. This location is a great way to learn how to draw as well as an opportunity to experience something outside of the traditional rides. I recommend this as something that the whole family can enjoy if you have extra time in Animal Kingdom. The downside of this attraction for me is that it is a bit out of the way and requires a train ride to access.
