Bucket List: Draw 5 different characters at the Magic of Disney Animation

bucket list - draw 5 disney characters

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!
