Animation Academy is an attraction at Disney California Adventure and Hong Kong Disneyland. The same attraction formerly existed in Disney's Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney Studios Park and DisneyQuest, which closed in 2015.[1]

Tokyo Disneyland also features an almost identical attraction, named simply Disney Drawing Class, within The Disney Gallery in World Bazaar. The attraction was closed permanently on September 30th, 2016, to make way for Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.[2][3]

In Shanghai Disneyland's Marvel Universe, a similar attraction called Marvel Comic Academy is operating. This attraction features Marvel Comic's characters instead of Disney movies characters.


The attraction opened together with DisneyQuest[where?] in 1998. It was also recently added[when?] to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disney California Adventure. It can be found within Art of Disney Animation at Walt Disney Studios Park. The attraction opened at Hong Kong Disneyland on July 14, 2007 and is located adjacent to the Opera House in Main Street, U.S.A..

The attraction itself is a drawing session with a Disney animator who teaches guests to draw a Disney character. Guests may take their own artwork home if they want after the drawing session.
