It is unfortunate that the Animation Building is so overlooked by park guests, as it is a real delight (not to mention a great escape on a hot day). The lobby inside the building is just a waiting area for four exhibits and shows. Don't just move through, though. Surrounding the room are projections and songs from various animated films. The coordination of the various screens is entertainment in its own right and is on a 30-minute loop. The shows include "Animation Academy," in which a host teaches the class how to draw a Disney character; "Character Closeup" serves as a displays a spectacular Pixar zoetrope demonstrating the principals of animation; "Turtle Talk with Crush" in which the audience can interact with the computerized turtle from Finding Nemo; and the Sorcerer's Workshop in which various interactive elements are presented, including a quiz to determine which Disney character you are most like.
