DCA: Animation Studio

I think the Animation Studio sounds flippin awesome! Why do I rarely hear about it when people talk about Disneyland?? Also, i've never seen any pictures of the inside. Is it really bad lighting in there and no flash allowed?

The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules

Well, the Animation Studios are not at DL but are at DCA. It has been a favorite in our family for many years. If you ask people about highlights at DCA you will hear about the Animation Studios pretty often.

I think it is possible that it gets missed a lot because lots of people enjoy mainly the rides and don't leave lots of time to commit to attractions. I really enjoy the Animation Studio, but I must confess I never spend as much time in there as I would like, simply because we are always in such a hurry to be getting to the next ride. I am hoping that this year we will spend some extra time checking out everything since we have enough time we might not be in such a hurry.

I really enjoy the Animation Studios too. The A/C is always on and I just love sitting in the lobby and watching the Disney clips that they show on the big screens and singing the songs...

I really like going to see Crush too, he's always funny..

Turtle Talk with Crush is in the same building. DH and DD can spend hours in there doing all of the different activities, especially the one where you speak the parts from Bambi and they play the scene back but with your voice as Thumper . We also pop in when we are in the area because we see so many characters floating around

We were just there on Wed. (9/17) and we did 2 sessions at the Animation Academy. Learned to draw Goofy and Donald. Plus, many times my DSis and DD will wait at AS for the rest of our group when we ride ToT.

I've taken pix inside the AS and AA. It's pretty dark inside AS, but they will come out.

Planning is almost as much fun as actually going isn't it?

We love it too. The theming of the Beauty and the Beast/Ursula area is wonderful.

Also, be sure to check out the Toy Story Zoetrope, it is in it's own room on the left side. I can't begin to describe how awesome it is! For those of you who have seen it you know what I mean.

My son could stand there and watch that thing over and over again! It's one of the coolest things I've ever seen too.

Next to Soaring Over Califiornia, I would say it is the best part of DCA. There's a lot of great stuff in there!

I dragged DH and my two teens boys in there. We all enjoyed the zoetrope. I wanted to go in the doors there and see what there was but no one else wanted to. I think my boys were afraid there would be something very uncool and beneath their age level in them so they just wouldn't go. When they went off on their own, we still never got over there. This summer, when it is just DH and I, we will finally see what's there.

We did Turtle Talk in 06 so I already knew what that was.

Desertbell, your kids are TOO cute! Love the pictures!

We didn't get in there last time (except DH and I did Turtle Talk the one time we went into DCA for a quick hour by ourselves); and I'm looking forward to taking DD13 in there. She loves to draw and does a lot of manga-style artwork-- took a blue ribbon at the state fair this year for her art entry. Lately she has been drawing Anime-style Disney characters! I think she will really enjoy the artists' studio.

Aww the pictures are so lovely! Looks like a nice little place to get out of the California heat for an hour or two.
