PHOTOS – Animation Academy finds a new home at Epcot Festival of the Arts

The much beloved Animation Academy has found a new home in the Vision House during Festival of the Arts. Replaced by Star Wars Launch Bay at Hollywood Studios, the Animation Academy during the Festival of the Arts follows the same 30 minute experience where you get to draw a Disney character with the assistance of an artist. Let’s take a look at the setup.

In classic Disney fashion, you exit through the gift shop. Luckily this is the best type of gift shop; one overflowing with Figment, and a spot to relax.

The Animation Academy is open from 9am to 7pm on festival days with intermittent classes throughout the day.

  1. Happy to see Animation Academy make an appearance, but would have like to see the illustrator’s setup to be a bit more professional.
