Disneyland {Again} Animation Academy.

We're so thankful we purchased season passes to Disneyland at the beginning of the year. The park is large and the crowds are always larger, which means that the lines can take a long time to get through one ride. We've been able to experience something new every time we've gone. 

This past weekend, we brought the kids to the happiest place in Hong Kong again. One of my favorite things that we got to do this trip, was to take part in their Animation Academy. We stood in line for fifteen minutes before they brought us into a lovely studio, where a staff member drew their own character which was projected on a screen at the front of the room and they instructed us as we drew one for ourselves. 

I had a lot of fun with the activity, although it was a little fast paced for my six and eight year old kids. They got a little frustrated with how fast the instructor went through the steps. That being said, the instructor went through each step methodically and I found it easy to replicate the image that was up on the screen.

Of course we all continued to eat and ride our way through Disneyland. With our season passes, we enjoy working our way through the park and repeating the rides that we love the most. We made it a point to arrive as soon as the park opened to avoid some of the crowd, and made a bee line to the ride that was at the top of the kid's list. It's a car ride in Tomorrowland that we waited ninety minutes for the last time we were here. This time we waited ten minutes, and the kids enjoyed driving their cars. 

My daughter is still a little scared of some of the rides, however, we've been able to talk our son into riding most of them! That does put a little bit of a damper on the experience since not everyone can ride then. But my husband and I will take turns and one will ride with our son while the other one stays with our daughter. Her favorite ride that she rides every time is the teacups. Also, I've decided my son and I need a picture with this guy every time we go to Disneyland!
