Disney Animation Building is an attraction at Disney California Adventure. There is no main show, such as the one in the Paris and Florida attractions, but there are a variety of attractions and exhibits the guests can visit.
The Disney Animation Building and all these attractions are located at Hollywood Land which is a themed land at the park. "The area is inspired by the 1930’s Golden Age period of Hollywood" and features attractions related to this concept. The Animation Academy is where guests can get lessons on how to draw various Disney characters. As part of the park's "Frozen Fun" event, which ran though May 15, 2015, the Academy gave exclusive lessons on how to draw either Olaf or Marshmallow from Frozen.
Other experiences at the Disney Animation Building include the Animation Courtyard. The area of the courtyard known as the Art of Animation Gallery is where guests can see some of the original artwork and the creative process from Disney and Pixar animated films, featuring scenery from the films as well as concept art of the characters.
Another attraction at the building is known as the Character Close-Up which, starting in late December 2014, features a meet and greet with Princess Anna and Elsa the Snow Queen from Frozen.
Other attractions include the Sorcerer’s Workshop and Turtle Talk with Crush. The Sorcerer’s Workshop features the Magic Mirror Realm which features interactive animation exhibits and allows guests to create simple animated drawings. Guests can figure out what "personality most resembles" them in the Beast’s Library. Lastly, guests can "gather 'round a "window to the Pacific" for a live chat with Crush the turtle from Finding Nemo.
