Tutorial From The Animation Academy: Minnie Mouse


Tutorial From The Animation Academy:

Minnie Mouse


Minnie Mouse has always been my very favorite Disney Character and I was so excited last week when a video tutorial on how to draw her was shared by Disney Parks. For those of you who have never visited The Magic Of Disney Animation at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, this will be a real treat for you. It’s a great place tucked into the back of the Park where you can step inside, have a seat and discover how some fantastically talented Cast Members bring Disney Characters to life.

This unique hands-on experience is so cool and often overlooked. I love it most because you will leave with a great souvenir of your visit there!

Grab your sketchbook and drawing pencils and get ready to draw Minnie Mouse!

Custom Park Plans from Monorail Magic Giveaway!

I don’t know about you guys, but when I went on my first trip to Walt Disney World, I had to buy one of those coupon organizers to bring all of my notes and information I had printed out from the internet and kept it organized with tiny labels! I even had a 1/2 inch binder to go along with it! I know from first-hand experience that if you don’t have a plan prior to your WDW vacation, you may end up rather frustrated and exhausted after your trip and let’s face it, that’s no fun.

Our friends over at Monorail Magic have created a fabulous plan that can be customized to your budget, dates, and group size, making a well-planned vacation for you. Here’s a small example of a custom plan:

They even have a plan for a monorail tour, which I think is an awesome way to take a break from the parks. We always like to have a pool or easy day in between busy park days. Please don’t underestimate the power of an easy day!

Being a Disneyland goer for years, when I started planning our first WDW vacation I was really overwhelmed by all the information out there. There are so many apps, blogs, tips and tools…I didn’t know where to begin. We all know that a vacation to Walt Disney World can cost thousands of dollars. I’ve seen families touring the parks that are obviously very frustrated with lines and what not. It’s so easy to avoid that. You must have a plan and that’s why I’m hosting this fabulous giveaway! This is the very first giveaway I’ve ever hosted, so I’m making it easy on you and using Rafflecopter for easy entries!
