One of our favorite Disney+ documentaries, Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, presented by National Geographic, was renewed for Season 2 last year, and the new season is finally available to stream!

The series follows several animals from Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Animal Kingdom Lodge, EPCOT, and even turtles who at times reside near Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, and invites viewers from home to join Cast Members and caretakers from Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment team backstage for a closer look at the care of some of the company’s most beloved residents.

You can check out a trailer of Season 2 of Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the video below from Disney Parks:

Season 2 features episodes focused on all types of species, from giraffes and sea turtles, to Purple Martins, just one of many migratory bird species that call the Walt Disney World Resort home for a brief moment each year.

As of this writing, the first three episodes are already available to stream on Disney+ (and have been released on National Geographic if you are watching on cable). New episodes will drop weekly, but if you haven’t caught up on Season 1, all of the previous episodes in the docuseries are available to stream as well.
