New character debuts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – meet ‘Bamboo’

by Banks Lee


A new walk-around character had made its debut at Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom.

Bamboo is a “living statue” type character made up of bamboo sticks and leaves. You may be able to spot Bamboo in the Africa section of the park near Tamu Tamu Refreshments.

Don’t get Bamboo confused with its “cousin,” DiVine. She can still be found meeting guests in the Oasis section of Animal Kingdom.

These are such mindless and thoughtless characters. Whichever person in Entertainment made these should be fired.

I guess it’s just proof that the small-minded guests will like anything that moves.

I’ll tell you what characters I want back at Animal Kingdom. The characters I want back at Animal Kingdom are Flik and Princess Atta from “A Bug’s Life.” In fact, I am petitioning it at
