The Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Zootopia+ recently premiered on Disney+ and now, guests who visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World can learn how to draw some of their favorite characters from the story.
Guests can visit The Animation Experience at Conservation Station by taking the Wildlife Express Train to Rafiki’s Planet Watch. If you’ve never ridden aboard the Wildlife Express Train, it’s really a fun and scenic way to take a little break from all the walking around the park you’re likely doing.
The experience lasts 25-minutes as animators are there to guide class participants step-by-step in bringing Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, or Flash to life with paper and pencil while sharing some little-known fun facts about the world of Zootopia and the real-world animals these characters are inspired by.
Trent Corey and Josie Trinidad, the Directors of Zootopia+, will also share how Disney’s Animal Kingdom played a big part in inspiring the filmmakers of the original Zootopia film and the new Zootopia+ series which are both streaming now on Disney+.
