Animation academy- animal kingdom

Hi folks

Is fastpass Needed for animation academy at ak ?

Also to get the drawings we do there do they supply/sell the tube holders to protect the drawings we do to get them home in the bag?

If not do they sell these at Walmart ?

Thanks

We booked a fp last Aug as it was new. I think if you're prepared to get there early and queue then you should be ok. Others may have newer info. It was very busy and there were lots of seats available. We had Pumba to draw.

As for getting them home, we used a spare hair bobble, rolled them together and popped them in the suitcase, but it's upto you.
Think I took a waterproof bag for use in AK.

A fastpass will get you closer to the front so if there are little ones in your party it may be worth it . Although there are big screens, otherwise i wouldn't bother

Is this the one that you get the little train over to? If so we did this in October, well the kids did, dh & I sat in a bench watching the vets with the animals. We didnt use a FP, no need as was straight in the queue when we got there mid morning. We just rolled them up and put in the bag.

We used a FP in August, as it was new and we werent sure how busy it would be, but I know there were standby people getting in, and I heard the cast member advise a family not to use an anytime FP they had for it whilst we were waiting

We turned up but there is a break around lunch time so check the times before you get on the train ! We loved it and bought the frame for my husbands picture, 27 years together and I didnt know he could draw! Ours are in the back of the frame.

Wow! Fabulous drawing!
And rather nice frame too - Do you remember how much the frame cost by any chance?
