Camp Minnie-Mickey “Goofy” Makes Rare Appearance at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Without going too far into the weeds here, let us look back a little into the history of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and celebrate a bit of the park’s 25th Anniversary.
Where Pandora – World of Avatar now resides, there once was a place called Camp Minnie-Mickey, which was home to character meet and greets, along with a few treat and snack stands. It was themed to the woodlands of North America, specifically the Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York, and was home to the Festival of the Lion King. Camp Minnie-Mickey was built on a portion of the park that was originally going to be part of the Beastly Kingdom.
This brings us back to yesterday at Animal Kingdom where we ran into our old friend from Camp Minnie-Mickey, Twitcher Goofy (bird watching). A Twitcher has nothing to do with streaming video game content, more about bird watching for the rarest birds. Goofy’s outfit is covered with patches of Disney Birds, think Zazu, Iago, Donald Duck, the Ostritch from Fantasia, and more.
