Description from PassPorter's Disneyland Resort and Southern California Guidebook:

Animation fans shouldn’t miss this walk-through of interactive exhibits and activities. Upon entering, you are in the Animation Courtyard, with huge screens showing famous animated scenes. Upcoming Disney movies are sometimes featured in this area. From here you can visit the Sorceror’s Workshop (get to know the characters—and yourself—better), Animation Academy (learn how to draw a Disney character), and Turtle Talk with Crush (real-time, voice-activated animation with the laid-back turtle from “Finding Nemo”). Characters from Disney's new movie, "Finding Dory," joined Crush in summer 2016. The amazing Toy Story Zoetrope (3-D spinning animation display) is temporarily closed at press time. Wheelchair accessible. Assistive listening devices. Closed captioning.

What PassPorter Readers Think of Disney Animation (5 comments):

I am so sorry that this activity is no longer available at DHS. I remember on the eve of the Goofy Challenge, 01/09/2010, the artist was teaching us how to draw Goofy. At the end of the demo I was first at the stage and was honored to get her to sign the original with a personal message. What a great Magic Moment.

My whole family loves this area. The artists in the family really enjoy the Animation Academy.
