We are exactly halfway through our 100 Days to Disneyland series! It’s been a really fast 50 days, I’m hoping that the rest of the 50 days go by as quickly, or even faster if possible! Today we are taking a look at the Disney Animation facility, which houses several different attractions! Located at Disney’s California Adventure Park in Hollywoodland, this building is the hub of many different attractions. I have already talked about some of them, here is the list of what you can find in this building:
- The Animation Courtyard
- Animation Academy
- Character Close-Up
- Sorcerer’s Workshop, featuring these three interactive experiences:
- Magic Mirror Realm
- The Beast’s Library
- Ursula’s Grotto
- Turtle Talk with Crush
As I said, this building is really the hub for an incredible selection of attractions and things for you to do. This building feels a lot like the Walt Disney World attraction “The Magic of Disney Animation” but with some different attractions housed within.
So tell me, please, do you like the Disney Animation building and all that is contained within, or do you kind of skip past it as you look for more exciting E-Ticket attractions? Please let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

My kids and I love the Animation facility. My daughter would spend all day in there if she could because she loves to draw. You must see the Toy Story Zoetrope. It only takes a few minutes but it’s well worth it. (I’m a little partial to it because a friend of mine designed part of it.) Last year they added a sandwich board outside where you can see which character they will be drawing at which time.
Thanks for the great tips, Alex! My daughter will likely have a blast here because she loves to draw!
