Magical New Experiences Are Coming To Disney’s Animal Kingdom This Holiday Season

For the first-time, magical new experiences are coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this holiday season. Animal Kingdom will have new holiday entertainment in every land this winter. From Pandora to Dinoland U.S.A. this year will truly be unique and magical. In past years the only real holiday decor was the large themed tree out in front of the park. This holiday season guests are in for a real treat!

As soon as guests enter the park and head to Discovery Island they will immediately be greeted with fun new decor and entertainment. The best part is it will change from day to night! During the day life-sized animal puppets with people from the village will roam around. Reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more will interact with guests, accompanied by musicians as they celebrate the season. The village will be filled with sparkling holiday decorations. Gorgeous animal-inspired luminaries will line the rooftops, and wireframe lanterns in the shape of beautiful birds can be found throughout the area.
