The Art of Disney Animation tells the story of the development of Disney’s movie-making techniques from the early experiments of Walt Disney through to modern Pixar creations. It uses a combination of movies and interactive exhibits to do this, with guest having the opportunity to try implementing the techniques themselves at the end.
The attraction is divided into several distinct areas. After waiting in a pre-show room featuring a number of exhibits, guests enter the Disney Classics Theatre, where they see a selection of moments from classic Disney films. They then move on to Drawn to Animation, where a live host explains how characters are created. Finally, they move onto a room containing “Animation Stations”, where they can have a go at drawing, animating and editing sound effects.
