Pretty neat stuff. Turtle Talk - where the surfin turtle dude from Finding Nemo interacts with the audience - is the big draw, and is very funny. Other areas about animation are interesting, too. Don't forget to check out the strobe-operated zoetrope.

I enjoyed this attraction a lot! I did the Turtle Talk thing and even got to ask a question -- "Do you think you overuse the word dude?" The response was funny, and all in all it was a neat interactive exhibit. I believe this was also the building in which you can record your voice into Disney scenes, and our group had a BLAST with that 8)

I really enjoyed the visit inside. I was amazed how big the entry area was!! The video screens and music was awesome! My favorite thing about the Animation building was Turtle Talk with Crush. That is such an amazing show. I knew it would be cool, but it exceeded my expectations by a lot! The only (and I mean ONLY) downside of the whole place was that the activity areas (especially the find out which character you are area) is packed and I didnt get a chance at the station.

Great exhibit! I liked how you could learn how animation works and you get to make your own. Then I loved the "which disney character are you?" I wound up being Timon.

Possibly the best ride in the dca backlot studios. The giant entry room is really quite stunning - and also very cleverly done to save money by careful use of screens and video plus slide projections. Turtle talk with crush was very cool, and it was good to see that the kids were excited. Crush was very funny, and made jokes that adults and kids could understand. In one room there is a quiz you can take to see which disney character you are. After that you can walk to the drawn to animation show. The size of the theater is small, and very cozy - it reminded me of the "Cranium Command" theater in Epcot as far as size. The actress - Patrica (a stage name is my guess here) was just terrific, and she helped the illusion of being able to interact with the animated Mushu (from Mulan) work well. The presentation itself details character development in animation - explaining the different steps it may take to make one come to life on screen and the evolutions they may take. Its a well done show, and its a great final exhibit. After that, you can exit out of the animation building through the entrance again, or via the attached gift shop. 9/10

a hodge podge of ever changing experiences, if you see a large crowd in the courtyard, run far away, if its empty, then enjoy, the areas are fantastic, I especially liked the new Turtle Talk, the technology is simply amazing, I didnt think Id enjoy it, but the way the thing interacts with the kids is just phenomenal, and is a really malestone in theme parks, best part of the show, the hosts final words
"and remember kids, be sure to keep saying dude all day long, your parents will love yah for it"
my only problem with it was I only got to enjoy it once because of extremly bad timing, but yeah, this probably has the greatest repeat value out of any show at DCA.

This ride is an excelent experience! You can see how animation is done, you can voice over cartoon characters in mini clips, and even find out what disney character is most like you! I was Clocksworth!!

The Disney Animation exhibit is one where you could essentially spend hours if you had the time. There are two separate shows, plus an exhibit on the development of various Disney characters, plus the Sorcerers Workshop. There is also the center room from which all of these others branch off. This is perhaps the best, yet most underappreciated, part of the entire attraction. It is a huge room that is air conditioned where you can sprawl out on the floor and just look at the walls all around you. Its not a Circle Vision film, as there are different non-continuous screens showing different things, but you get to watch clips of many Disney animated features, while listening to many of their most famous songs. I last visited the Drawn to Animation show, which is quite funny and entertaining, showing an animator interact with Mushu from Mulan, explaining his development. I also went through the Sorcerers Workshop. The best parts of this attraction are the Beasts library, where you can find out which Disney character you most resemble, and Ursulas cave, where the voices of the characters are stolen from several scenes of Disney movies, and you get to reinsert the dialogue (or singing) with your own voice. Pretty fun if you have a big group! I missed the film with Robin Williams and Walter Cronkite, as we just ran out of time. Overall, a must-see.

This was pretty cool. We had no idea what it was, just wandered in, spent over an hour in there. The thing I found most interesting was all of the originasl ideas for some of the characters - a lot of the early models look completely different from what the final product was. Worth checking out!

The best animation tour in a disney park. I think it beats MGM Studios in Florida. Classy lobby and beautiful layout. The Walt Disney Movie is a great historical movie that should not be missed, it captures all the disney spirit.
