This is Toon Studio, a tribute to the art of animation - and a playful look at how those timeless films are made, written and directed... by the Toons themselves!


From the leafy Disney Bros. Plaza, your first step onto the animation storyboard is under the towering Toon Studio entrance marquee of Sorcerer Mickey, pointing his golden wand toward the iconic Sorcerer's Hat and your first destination: a journey through the history, art and artistry of animation.

From the earliest Spanish cave paintings to the sweeping colours of Fantasia and the unforgettable characters of the Disney archives, Art of Disney Animation gives you a unique insight into the animation process - and your chance to try it all out for yourself!  Next, skip across the courtyard to Animagique and watch as Donald Duck opens up the Disney vault in a spectacular showcase of blacklight puppetry - can you name all those films flying around the stage?

With your animation knowledge topped-up, it's time to take part in some real-life toon filmshoots and discover that all those famous films were actually written, directed and produced by the Toons themsleves!  Flying Carpets Over Agrabah takes you soaring above the tropical desert oasis of Disney's 'Aladdin', whilst the brand new Cars Quatre Roues Rallye invites you into the Route 66 locales of Radiator Springs for an action-packed desert spin-out right out of Pixar's 'Cars'.

Finally, it's time to step-up and accept the challenge of a true blockbuster role. Join the "awesome" sea turtle from Finding Nemo for a ride aboard Crush's Coaster - a thrilling undersea journey through the colourful coral reef and swirling East Australian Current!

The magic of animation is that - with a little imagination - truly anything is possible!
