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!
There are tons of fun things to do in Disney World that everyone knows about – however, one of the great things about the theme parks is that there are so many hidden treasures that not everyone knows about! If you’re visiting Disney World but you want to check out what else there is to do aside from the headliner rides and restaurants, here are some suggestions – hopefully you can discover something new on your next trip!
Make a wish at Cinderella’s wishing well – it only takes a moment, but it’s like a private little magical moment. Find Cinderella’s wishing well, pull out a penny, and make a wish! This is something fun to do with kids, but it’s also sweet with couples or even just by yourself. After all, it’s Disney World – if you wish hard enough, it’s sure to come true!
Ride those rides you absolutely never go on – everyone has them. Maybe you’ve never done some attractions, or maybe it’s just been awhile since you went on them. Instead of heading straight to Space Mountain or Toy Story Mania, take a moment to enjoy Astro Orbiter or Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream.
