Disney Offers First Look at Their New Animal Kingdom Holiday Puppets


This year Disney’s Animal Kingdom is getting in on the holiday fun with new entertainment and decorations!


When you enter Discovery Island you will enter a celebration of winter!

The village is filled with sparkling white holiday decorations and colorful, animal-inspired luminaries, and throughout the day, the area springs to life with a Merry Menagerie of winter animals, accompanied by serenading musicians as they create a playful atmosphere of festive fun. 


This is where it gets adorable and cool (pun intended.) The team at Disney Parks Live Entertainment have made amazing puppets including: “reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more in the form of life-size, artisan-sculpted puppets, each designed and hand-crafted using natural materials and fabrics. The animals were then brought to life through a variety of theatrical techniques that will allow them and their performers to interact directly with guests like never before. ”

I just love these! They are so cute! Here’s a video showcasing these amazing new characters!

These puppets and more will debut at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on November 8th! They will be joining a holiday Tree of Life show!

Make sure you stop in at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this holiday season!
