Wow. What were the circumstances? Did you have a very small class or something? Last class of the night? I'd love to draw Scar, but they said he was too complicated for the class.

There is no pre-show. The ENTRANCE to the attraction first takes you through a short show entitled Drawn to Animation, where you will learn how disney characters (currently Mushu) are created. Then you can walk into the Animation Station, where there are a variety of activities, including character meet and greets, interactive kiosks, and of course the Animation Academy, which is being talked about on this thread.

The shop is the EXIT of the attraction.

We have taken this class about 10-15 times total now and we always head to it through the gift shop. It runs every half hour and they artists will evaluate the class, kid to adult ratio in deciding a character. We always ask when we have finished our first class what they "plan" on drawing next and they usually hint to us, depending again on the above factors. We have done Stitch open mouth, Stich closed mouth, Tigger laughing, Daisy, Donald, Goofy, Mickey, Pooh, Minnie, Dale, and others I am forgetting.

This is our favorite place to hang out at DHS!

This is one of my favorite non ride attractions in the park. We always try to stop at it at least once a trip but I have noticed once people realize what it is, it fills up fast. Last time I was at the Studios was Christmas Day 2006. The park wasn't that crowded (ToT was a walk on in the middle of the day, Rock N Roller Coaster was a 30 minute wait standby at the same time), but once people started asking why everyone was standing in that area and the CM told them what it was, it filled up and people were asking what time to come back for the next show. You also want to try to make sure you are one of the first in the room so you don't have to use the lap desks and can use a real desk.

My DH and DD love to do this too. When we were there a few weeks ago, they drew Mickey Mouse. Later in the week at breakfast at Chef Mickey's my DD had the characters sign her drawing. Since we have so many other autographed books, signed tshirts, etc, this was a nice way to have her get autographs in a different way that she was very proud of.
