New holiday animal puppet experience coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom
This holiday season, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will host an all-new experience that will bring the magic of the holidays to life during both day and night.
The magic starts at Discovery Island, where guests will be immersed in a celebration of winter as the village is filled with sparkling white holiday décor. Colorful, animal-inspired luminaries will line the rooftops, and wireframe lanterns in the shape of birds will be found throughout the area.
A holiday gathering of winter animals will appear during the day on Discovery Island, in the form of life-size artisan-sculpted puppets. Reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more will interact with guests and be accompanied by musicians.
When night falls, the rooftop luminaries will cast a warm glow over Discovery Island. The Tree of Life will awaken with a series of winter-themed displays and a holiday-inspired musical score. Between awakenings, the Tree of Life will shimmer throughout the night.
This is just one of the many holiday-themed experiences guests can enjoy at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as Walt Disney World this winter. To learn more, visit DisneyWorld.com/Holidays.
