Animation Courtyard Area of Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Visit Animation courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to learn first hand how Disney characters are brought to life through the magic of animation, take a voyage under the sea with Ariel and her friends, and spend some time with your favorite Disney Junior Characters!

A much-overlooked section of the park, Animation Courtyard features attractions and character meet and greets that should not be missed.


  • Disney Junior – Live on Stage!
  • The Magic of Disney Animation
  • Voyage of The Little Mermaid


  • Animation Courtyard Shops – Disney classic animated films merchandise and costumes.
  • Animation Gallery – Animation cells, limited edition reproductions, books, and collectibles.

Fun Facts

Animation Courtyard features most of Hollywood Studios’ character meet and greet spots!

Characters making appearances include Mickey, Handy Manny, Jake of the Neverland Pirates, the Incredibles, and Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope!

Be sure to check your Guide Map at the park for meet and greet times!

Anyone who loves drawing should not miss out on the Animation Academy, a 20-minute art class that is part of the Magic of Animation Tour.

A Disney animator will teach you how to draw your favorite Disney characters so that you can take home your very own piece of Disney art. Makes a fantastic free souvenir!

Since the Voyage of the Little Mermaid is a big draw for small children, it is wise to get FASTPASSES as early as possible.

If making a FASTPASS sweep in this section of the park, it would be wise to snatch up some for Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Toy Story Midway Mania! (in nearby Pixar Place), and the Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow on Mickey Avenue, as these attractions draw long lines as the day wears on.
