We visited Disney’s Animal Kingdom this weekend and were pleasantly surprised to see a sand art display! The sand art display is to promote the upcoming release of Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon movie.

They started to work on the sand art shortly after Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened to guests. You can see the incredible progress photos below!

Later in the evening, we went back to film the sand art display. It takes a team of two talented artists over 24 hours to build and carve the display made entirely from sand.

Seeing sand art was quite fun! We wish we could see displays like this more often at Walt Disney World!

The display features Raya, Tuk Tuk, Sisu the last dragon and the Ongi, all set in the fantasy world of Kumandra.

There’s also an upcoming animation experience! Continuing the legacy Walt Disney started with “Bambi,” animals have been an integral part of Disney storytelling and continue to inspire the development of new, beloved characters. The Animation Experience at Conservation Station offers guests the chance to learn to draw Disney characters inspired by the animals they may also see in the park.
