A coworker mentioned seeing something called "Mickey Academy" years ago. Does anyone know what this is? Does it still exist?
The only thing that I can think of is the Disney Institute which I believe shut down a few years back. You could go and take various different themes of classes such as Cooking, art, etc. Maybe Mickey academy could have been a kids class there? Although thinking of it about 13 years ago I went to then (MGM Studios) and took a backstage type of class which was basically a tour through the various locations of hidden Mickeys, and then a drawing studio with a animator where you could ink and paint your very own animation cell. Perhaps it could have been called that.
There still is a Disney Institute, for company's, Disney Institute Home Page.
When you wish upon a star..... LAUGHTER IS TIMELESS, IMAGINATION HAS NO AGE AND DREAMS ARE FOREVER. Adults are only kids grown up, anyway. WD ...That's the real trouble with the world. Too many people grow up. WD

There's the Animation Academy in the Studios, where you can learn to draw Mickey (or a few other characters, depending on the artist of the moment)
There's also a Disney University... but it's for Cast Memebers
