  • Animation Academy

    How recently did they switch this show? I must say I had a great time going to two shows back to back. If you haven't been yet, instead of an animator and Mushu, there is just an animator, and each show they teach you how to draw a disney character. They have a large animator's pads for each person and the animator shows you how to draw a character step by step. The first show was Winnie the Pooh and the second was Mickey. This is definatly for all ages, and even if you consider yourself the worst artist in the world, they make it very easy and enjoyable. Anybody else see this yet.

    We went a few weeks ago, and I have to say, I was incredibly bored. Drawing isn't my thing, so sitting through a drawing class really wasn't my thing. We used to go into that room to see the presentation every once in a while. I cannot foresee going in there again while they're doing this.

      I had really hoped that by the time this show opened for real or shortly thereafter (I saw a 'preview' show), Disney would have added an animated guest host. The show is WAY too short and I really can't see visiting it again on my own unless I'm accompanying guests... even then it's short enough that I might skip it and wait out in the wonderful lobby.

        I went to this show a few times this weekend. Ok, an artist, I'm not. My Mickey was a little bloated, my Donald Duck had a funny beak, and my Goofy, we won't even go into (kinda looked like an alien Goofy). I have to admit, though, that I thought it was fun and I enjoyed this a lot more than the old show with Mushu.

          We thought it was alot of fun. Nice interaction with the guests, and something to take home! I liked Mushu, but I like this better.

            Even though i went more than once, the animator said different jokes, which made it more interesting. I'm glad to see that im not the only one who went multiple times.:ap:

              I enjoy it... but then again, I like to draw Disney characters all day long anyways.

                I thought it was pretty neat, but I wish they had a more advanced "class" for people who might be able to at least draw a human character with assistance (like they have lining the walls of the queue to get in :P ). Anyway, I knew what it was when I went in anyway, and it was nice enough. I never saw the Mushu show so I have nothing to compare it to. (We drew Pooh, which the Japanese (?) group in the room had done but no one else had. Everyone had drawn Mickey and/or Donald and/or Goofy. I wonder why no Minnie...?)

                  Minnie is exactly the same as Mickey except her nose is a little smaller, she has eye lashes (three curved lines) and a big bow. Really, she is. Take a drawing of Mickey and add the lashes and bow and its an instant Minnie.

                          We went twice during our November 12-20 trip...and really enjoyed it!! I was sure I would not be able to draw anything that was recognizable....but....while they won't be signing me up for an animator anytime, you could at least recognize Mickey and Goofy!! I too had nothing to compare it top.

                          I thought it was a nice sit down break, not too long, and enjoyable. My 13 year old granddaughter (who can draw) also enjoyed it!!

                          I will probably go back again...but my next trip will be further off than a lot of yours!!
