October 18, 2004 – The Animation Academy Opens in Disney’s Hollywood Studios

“…guests can stop into the pavilion’s Animation Academy and learn how to draw a real Disney character from one of our character artists…”

On October 18, 2004, the Animation Academy opened in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World. This instructor-led animation school was the third version to open, and the second in Walt Disney World (with the first opening in DisneyQuest in Downtown Disney). It was located in the Magic of Disney Animation area, featuring a film about how animation is done, along with some character meet-and-greets of characters not often seen in the park. The area closed on July 13, 2015, to become the Star Wars Launch Bay.
