    My daughter is an incredible artist and we are going to Disney World in December 2017. We are already planning lunch with an Imagineer but I was wondering if there was a place at Disney World that a Disney artist is available to draw a a requested picture

    Hi Jennifer! Perhaps someday we will see your daughter's talent be put to work with Disney. There are so many opportunities for her in the future and I wish her all the best.

    I am so glad you were able to book the lunch with an Imagineer. This will give her a chance to ask questions about the career and the possibilities for her with a company like Disney. Since they moved all the animators to California you no longer have the opportunity to watch them at work or connect with them. The old Art of Animation pavilion is now headquarters for the new Star Wars characters.

    There are two locations that come to mind when thinking about artists available to guests. They often have guest artists in the Art of Disney store in both Epcot and Disney Springs. The Epcot store is next to Spaceship Earth and the location in Disney Springs is in the market place near the end where you find the bus depot.

    The artists are not necessarily cast members but will be artists authorized to do Disney art pieces. They sell their merchandise and sign the pieces. I am not sure if they would do something special for a guest or not but if you visited at a slow time they might make some magic for your daughter.

    There are also portrait artists in several of the resorts but again not sure what they would be willing to do beyond their portrait craft. I am sure you will have a wonderful time no matter what you do or find in the way of the art of Disney!
