Looks like an iguanodon is not the only dinosaur to make it back from the late Cretaceous period at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
During a test run through approximately May 3, a special character experience is happening in Dinoland USA. Professor Parker Woodson and her pet velociraptor “Val” are roaming the streets, touring the area and meeting guests.
According to Professor Woodson, she has raised “Val” since birth. Because of that, the velociraptor is friendly toward guests and curious about them and the Dinoland environment. “Val” is constantly moving around the land and does not stop for photos with guests. If you’re walking behind her, watch out for the tail!
This test meet and greet and the future of “Val” will most likely be dependent on guest feedback. Set times are currently 11 a.m., 12, 2, 3, and 4 p.m.
