Description And Comments

The Animation Experience provides information about the history of Disney animation and gives guests a chance to draw their favorite characters from The Lion King with the help of an instructor.

Touring Tips

The Animation Experience is located in a remote section of the park, so crowds shouldn’t be large during the early and late part of the day. Note that you need to take the Wildlife Express Train from Africa to Rafiki's Planet Watch in order to get to Conservation Station, where this attraction is located.

Think of this as an Animal Kingdom version of the Animation Academy that was once at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
