If you haven't been to the sorcerer's workshop, stop in. There's lots of hands on interactive animation machines. There is this compass like mural as you enter. The symbols spell out Walt & Roy in "Atlantis language" this is what the cm told me. We always visit the animation building and the workshop is down the ramp and may be missed. It's the room between Beast's library and the animation main l  More...

Decided to go to one of my favorite places in CA, the Courtyard Gallery in the Animation Building. Was so disappointed to see that they got rid of the couches and all that's left to sit on are these two benches. When did that happen? At least there's still a little room on the floor. Hoping it's just a temporary thing. This is always a good place to get out of the heat for a bit.

Maybe it is because of the people who think they are @ their house and lay down , take up the whole couch and   , take off their shoes. - itsmyglassslipper  745.6 #310 3:25PM

I've been in there so many times and see people using the couches for napping. I sure hope they come back because it was a nice retreat from the heat and to let my minnie sing and dance with other kids. - FantasticPoohski  33.0 #6181 3:29PM
Used to love going here when ours were little. They'd dance and chase the lights. It was so heartwarming.  - DisneyMom13  467.2 #528 8:55PM
BOO!  Even though I haven't been in there for a long time it was a haven when Lil One was truly little.  One of the ways Disney DNA got into her!  I hope it's temporary.  - PrincessDuckie  954.8 #230 9:08PM

I really love and appreciate these posts, thank you so much!  I wish I could have experienced the Mine Train, it looks really neat, and I would have loved the Art of Animation. Funny to think we would need tickets to enjoy these attractions. I'm so used to walking through the gates and just enjoying everything, not having to pick an choose which tickets to use and which to save. Amazing how Small World has endured so long with so few changes. Hoping they never add Frozen or Star Wars to that classic ride lol!! Thanks again!! :) - LiveLaughLoveDisney  370.5 #0 2:52PM
I'm so glad to hear you enjoy them! Means a lot that you took the time to tell me so. Thank you! I agree, it would be so odd to have to have individual tickets for attractions like a carnival. Thank goodness they changed that. Too much planning lol! My kids so love Small world. I bet they would be able to pick out any small change or substitution. I'm with you, that would be tragic to save such a classic attraction! - Duchess_SMK  6631.6 #23 4:00PM

I absolutely loved this movie seen it twice dying to see it again but it will be awhile before it hits $1 movie theaters or DVD. πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ!!! It is by far one of my all time favorite Disney movies now and if you haven't seen it I would highly suggest it. Also very funny I went to late night showings of this movie and each time the entire crowd was laughing! Great movie and I should head back to the animation building to see it again. Have not seen the giant poster since I saw the movie, but from what I remember I loved the phrase "Just Zoo It" and the iPhones have different symbols like carrots and paws. Also look for someone with the movie Wreck-It-Rhino! Sorry if this was long, but I can't stop talking about this movie!!! - ETicket_In_the_Sky  56.4 #4855 9:22AM
