While Animal Kingdom is the place to see real animals (yes, even giraffes and elephants!!), you can also experience incredible puppetry in the park.
From Kevin wandering around to greet guests to the fish in Finding Nemo the Musical, the puppets at Animal Kingdom have the ability to create happiness for thousands of guests each year. And, now guests visiting during the holiday season will get to watch new puppets bring joy to the (Disney) World!
Merry Menagerie is coming to Discovery Island this winter with icy, white decorations and animal-inspired lights, along with the other holiday décor around the parks! To accompany this new Winter Wonderland, brand-new sculpted puppets will do their best to melt the hearts of visitors from everywhere.
Ten life-size puppets have been crafted for the holidays using natural fabrics and materials to realistically interact with guests throughout the holiday season (!!!).
Starting November 8th, families will be able to meet penguins, polar bears, foxes, reindeer, birds, and more!
Buuut, you can see the Merry Menagerie animals in action here!
This is just one piece in the incredible decor that Disney is placing in Animal Kingdom for the very first time! Not only will guests have the opportunity to see these amazing puppets, but there will also be new entertainment and decor in each land.
