If you have been to Disney’s Animal Kingdom since April 22nd, then you may have noticed the new Cast Members costumes. The Cast Member costumes are now displaying some of the threatened and endangered species that Disney is working to conserve in the wild. The Cast Member costumes feature a mosaic design with stories behind them. Some of them may even surprise you! For example, did you know that more than 20,000 species of butterfly have been found around the world?
The Animal Kingdom Cast Members are able to choose among 3 styles. They feature animals that fly, such as butterflies and cranes. Animals that swim, such as turtles, sharks, stingrays. And animals that are land-dwelling, such as tigers, gorillas, elephants, and rhinos. The different costumes will be seen in different lands of the park.
If you have ever spoken to a Cast Member at Animal Kingdom, you might find that they are very knowledgeable about these special animals and may even teach you about the magic and beauty of nature and the importance of Disney’s conservation efforts around the world.
The more our cast members can be advocates for their favorite animals, the more inspired our Guests will be to take actions that help support these animals in the wild. This is just another way our Guests also learn more about Disney’s global conservation efforts through research, fieldwork and the Disney Conservation Fund. The Disney Conservation Fund has directed more than $70 million to reverse the decline of wildlife in more than half the countries in the world.
