Brand New Holiday Experience Coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

I think this is exciting! Finally Disney is offering something extra special at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for the holiday season!

“This holiday season, guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom will find festive new entertainment and holiday décor in every land of the park, from DinoLand, U.S.A. to Pandora – The World of Avatar. On Discovery Island at the heart of the park, the magic of the holidays will truly come to life, with incredible experiences both day and night.”

Guests will enter into a celebration of winter “hand-crafted by the eclectic community of artists who make the island their home.”

The village will be filled with “sparkling white holiday decorations” and colorful animal luminaries on the rooftops. Also look for special wire-frame lanterns shaped like birds throughout the area.

During the daytime guests can enjoy life-sized, artisan-created, puppets around the Discovery Island area. Animals like “Reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more interact with guests, accompanied by serenading musicians as they create a playful atmosphere of festive fun.”

Then at night the rooftop luminaries and bird lanterns will light up around the village and the Tree of Life Awakenings show will feature “..wintry tales, complemented by a familiar and heartwarming holiday-inspired musical score.”

It sounds so pretty!  I can’t wait to see what they do around the rest of the park since they said it will include Dinoland and Pandora too!

This brand new offering will begin on November 8th and run though the holiday season! Make sure you stop in to check it out! Also visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios because their holiday offerings are amazing!  Epcot offers holidays around the World Showcase and the Candlelight Precessional. And, it goes without saying, the Magic Kingdom’s decorations, Cinderella castle lights, and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is a must see!
