Walt Disney World Celebrates Animal Care for National Zoo Keeper Week

This week is National Zoo Keeper Week! Disney Parks Blog shared that Disney is taking the opportunity to express thanks to the cast members that work within Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment that help provide the care for thousands of animals that are located at Walt Disney World Resort. There are animal keepers, aquarists, water scientists, ranch hands, veterinary staff, nutritionists, behaviorists, administrative support team and more. It takes everyone on the team to ensure that each of the animals on property are well cared for.


Caring for all of the animals at Walt Disney World is a 24/7/365 responsibility and these cast members ensure that the well-being of each animal is their number one priority.

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!
