New Holiday Decorations Debuted at Animal Kingdom in Walt Disney World

We previously announced that Disney’s Animal Kingdom would debut new holiday decorations in each of the themed lands in the park as well as new festive entertainment. We are excited that the day has finally come and today these new offerings debut. The fun starts at Discovery Island where there will be life-sized animal puppets during the day and then the Tree of Life will have a new series of wintry tales and new holiday music periodically throughout the evening!


DinoLand, U.S.A. will feature Donald and his friends at Donald’s Dino-Bash all dressed up in festive attire and with colorful holiday decorations.

The Asia area of the park will be celebrating Diwali, which is the Holiday Festival of Lights in India. There will be glowing lanterns as well as amazing cultural performances.

In Africa, there will be a unique take on the holiday where Western traditions will be fused with many of the colors and texture from authentic African celebrations.

Guests can also check out the fun over at Pandora – The World of Avatar. The residents of Pandora have brought the holidays to the area with some Earth decorations as well as ones that have been created in Pandora.

Who else can’t wait to check out these amazing new holiday offerings?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
