We were beyond excited to hear about all of the new and upcoming holiday decorations that will be gracing the park this year! But, we had no idea the Holiday Snowflakes at the Animal Kingdom would be making such an impact in our hearts!
Guests visiting the Animal Kingdom this year will be able to see many holiday-themed items right away from the giant beautiful tree at the entrance to the park, to the decorations and Arctic puppets that await you inside. However, we have one item that you just might miss if you are whizzing right on by these beautiful Holiday Snowflakes on Discovery Island.
If you look closely you might see the Holiday Snowflakes woven into the garland hanging on the shops and buildings in Discovery Island. However, one thing you might not know is these beautiful specimens were handmade by artisans from the Augusta Training Shop. The Augusta Training shop is a nonprofit organization in Augusta, Georgia that “employs adults with cognitive and physical disabilities, enabling them to discover their abilities and create rich and meaningful lives.”
The Holiday Snowflakes were added after Disney Imagineers recently had the chance to meet the inspiring artisans to hear their stories of the care and attention they put into making each and every snowflake and knew immediately they had to bring the talented artisans to Walt Disney World Resort to personally see their one-of-a-kind snowflakes hanging for all to see at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Take a look at this video that will hit you right in the feels as the artisans are shown their creations at Animal Kingdom.
