The Animation Experience

On Disney’s Instagram Disney Parks, we follow two friends taking the journey to The Animation Experience. From start to finish, fans can witness what the experience entails. It is no secret that animation has always been a love of Walt Disney, making this experience more magical. “Walt Disney always encouraged his animators to spend time with real-life animals and observe their behavior,” Disney writes. His influence and interest in animals is what brings all of Animal Kingdom to life.

At The Animation Experience, Guests can explore their creativity and draw various characters. Each class is twenty-five minutes in length and features a different character to sketch. As shown in the Disney Parks video, this class sketched out the beloved character, Piglet. What’s fun about learning the art of animation is that it is for any skill level. Even if you do not consider yourself an artist, here at Disney, you can be because you can do anything if you just believe!
