Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park will receive an early “gift” of festive new holiday décor in every land. Disney released this video to share a behind-the-scenes look at what you can expect at the park this holiday season.
This year when you visit Discovery Island you will find yourself in the midst of a celebration of winter, hand-crafted by the eclectic community of artists who reside there. The village will be filled with sparkling white holiday decorations, and animal-inspired luminaries will line the rooftops. And during the day, Discovery Island will spring to life with a holiday gathering of winter animals with artisan-sculpted puppets, including reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more.
Each evening, the Tree of Life will awaken with a series of wintry tales, complemented by a holiday-inspired musical score and will sparkle and shimmer throughout the night, alive with the magic of nature and the spirit of the holidays.
In Asia, you will see how the residents of Anandapur have decorated the theatre district in celebration of Diwali, the holiday festival of lights in India. Glowing flowers, lanterns and more will illuminate the square between Anandapur Theater and the waterfront stage, home to authentic cultural performances.
The Africa section of the park will offer new décor and DinoLand, U.S.A. will fill with the sounds of the holidays thanks to a Truck-O-Saurus pumping holiday tunes. Plus you will see some of your favorite Characters with their best holiday décor and accessories.
This year, the holiday spirit will now reach Pandora – The World of Avatar, where the ex-pats living and working on the moon will bring a little Christmastime fun to their home, with a display of kitschy holiday décor at Pongu Pongu that combines vintage pieces from Earth with items handcrafted from materials indigenous to Pandora.
