Mother’s Day is a way to celebrate the women in our lives that mold us and help us grow into the Disney loving adults we have become.
This Mother’s Day we celebrate with the new Masai Giraffe moms and babies at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Take a look at these mamas and babies loving up on each other and let the cute wash over you.
The youngest calf Acacia and her mother, Stephanie are our first family to celebrate! This little one was born in early April and keepers are still deciding on her name. She may be small now, but she’s growing quickly, and if she’s anything like Stephanie, she’ll be very independent and bravely exploring the savanna on her own very soon.
Violet and her mother, Willow take to the savanna and enjoy playing with others while the safari drives through! Violet was born on Feb. 11, and has reached all her developmental milestones under Willow’s watchful eyes.
Jabari made an exciting entrance into the world in January when his mom Mara gave birth right on savanna at Kilimanjaro Safaris. Now that the duo has joined the rest of the tower, you’ll find both tucked into the middle of the action. Mara likes to be near other giraffes while she bonds with her calf – so Jabari has quickly become part of the herd.
Happy Mother’s Day to all those Disney moms out there this Sunday!
