When I discovered the Magic of Disney Animation at Hollywood Studios, I fell in love with it. If you’re not familiar, you can go back there and they have drawing classes about every 25 minutes. An artist will guide you step by step through how to draw your own Disney character. This is something I now have to do every time I’m at Disney. I’m not much of an artist myself, but with their guidance my drawings come out pretty good! It’s a fun experience and it also provides you with a free souvenir that you made yourself!
There are apparently almost 50 different characters available to draw. The one that you get is dependent upon what the artist feels like doing. A lot of times they will ask the crowd which ones they’ve done already, to try and get as many new ones as possible. There’s definitely a chance you will duplicate, but I’m aiming for as many different ones as I can! I usually get in one drawing per trip. It was a bucket list item to draw 5 different characters. And I’ve actually done 6. Now that I’ve achieved it, I’m aiming for 15!
I want to be able to try many of the things that Disney World has to offer, and one of the ones I hadn’t done until recently was visit Disney Quest in Downtown Disney. I hadn’t heard much about it so I wasn’t sure what to expect, and the things I had heard were pretty mixed. Still, it sounded like an interesting concept and since my husband is a video game lover, I thought it might be something fun for us to try together!
Before I get into the details, I will say that we loved Disney Quest! We had a ton of fun spending an afternoon here. We had gotten the “water parks fun and more” option for our tickets since we were planning to do a waterpark, and this was included. We probably spent about 4 hours here so even if it hadn’t been, I think it would’ve been worth the money. Especially if you’ve got a half day on your arrival/departure day or for some other reason. Here’s what we loved most about Disney Quest:
We adored Wreck-It Ralph, and getting to play Fix-it Felix, while a simple game, was a blast! My husband loves old school style video games and this fit the bill. He dominated the high scores and I kept getting Felix killed by the bricks falling on his head. We spent way more time here than I would have thought. It’s a simple but addicting little game.
