Descend into the cavernous dungeon of a medieval castle and create your very own animated drawings. Interactive exhibits teach how the principles of persistence of vision trick the eye into believing that still images are in motion. While you work, don't be surprised if a famous visitor appears in the magic mirror on the wall.
Answer questions posed by an enchanted book and find out which Disney character your personality most resembles. Are you a hero like Mulan or a villain like Scar? Come find out! The room itself—modeled after the Beast's secret library in Beauty and the Beast—shifts character all around you, astoundingly going from faded disrepair to pristine grandeur and back again every 4 minutes.
Journey below the waves into the secret underwater grotto of Ursula, the villainous sea witch from The Little Mermaid. Ursula steals your voice and uses it in a classic Disney movie clip. Choose from a variety of famous scenes that feature either speaking or singing roles. Keep an eye out for Ursula's henchman Flotsam and Jetsam as they slink and slither around the room!
Sorcerer's Workshop is only one part of the Disney Animation building. Other areas of the building provide even more opportunities to learn all about the art and history of Disney animation, in an entertaining, interactive, hands-on environment.
