The Merry Menagerie is a seasonal spectacle that invites guests to join in on an interactive holiday experience. Disney artisans have meticulously handcrafted life-sized animal puppets that are animated by skilled performers. These amazing creatures roam around the Discovery Island area, interacting with guests and creating an immersive atmosphere that feels like stepping into a storybook.
