    I think I've heard somewhere that in one (maybe more) of the parks, that you are actually taught how to draw a character....is this true? If so, have you ever done this? What character do you draw or does it change?

    This is SOOOOO cool :) It's in Hollywood Studios and it's part of the animators tour but you can go and do it without doing the tour itself :) (just keep going past the brown derby and turn right past the bear in the big blue house)

    It takes around 20 mins and they choose a different character each session :) everyone gets to draw but it's fine, no one sees you or drags you out to the front or anything.

    They show you how to draw the characters just using easy shapes :) It's really good

    Definitely at DHS. Pooh seems to be the most popular character--he's probably the easiest to draw!

    It's fun!

    They also do this in Disney Quest. It has always been fairly busy when I've seen it.

    Can you remember where abouts at DQ you've seen this. We've been a few times and I've never noticed it before!

    Think it's on the 2nd level. You do the drawing on computer monitors and they'll print yours off for you - costs 2 or 3 dollars for the print but the workshop is free.

    yep sure is :)

    It sounds like the disneyquest one is all fancy and done on computers, the hollywood studios one is where you sit at an animators desk with proper pencil and paper :)
