Disney World’s Animal Kingdom will ring in the holiday season like never before with NEW entertainment and holiday décor beginning November 8, 2019!
On Discovery Island, guests will find themselves “in the midst of a celebration of winter, hand-crafted by the eclectic community of artists who make the island their home.” During the day, guests will encounter a “holiday gathering of winter animals, realized in the form of life-size, artisan-sculpted puppets. Reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more” will interact with guests who will also enjoy performances by serenading musicians for festive fun.
Sparkling white decorations and colorful animal-inspired luminaries will line the rooftops along with wireframe lanterns shaped like birds to light up the night.
And the Tree of Life, of course, will awaken at night “with a series of wintry tales, complemented by a familiar and heartwarming holiday-inspired musical score.”
And the Tree will shimmer “alive with the magic of nature and the spirit of the holidays” between awakenings.
