Christmas Time At Disney World is the most magical of times. This year Christmas at the Animal Kingdom brings even more magic. For the first time in its two-decade history, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be offering new festive entertainment and holiday decor in every land beginning November 8, 2019.
Christmas At Animal Kingdom Lands
New entertainment this Christmas season at Discovery Island.
Soon as you cross the bridge to Discovery Island you’ll be welcomed by an all-new celebration. There will be white Christmas decorations throughout the village. Rooftop luminaries of vibrant colored animals will be found everywhere. Multi-colored birds will be throughout the area as shimmering lanterns at nighttime. Bringing a warm festive holiday glow to the area.
As the sun sets, at the center of Animal Kingdom in Discover Island, The Tree of Life awakens with a series of winter tales along with some of your favorite Christmas songs. The Tree of Life will shimmer and sparkle all through the night.
During the day winter animals gather with serenading musicians right alongside. From polar bears to penguins and more you will find these life-size artisan puppets interacting with everyone.
At night, come and join the energetic Chip ‘n Dale at the all-new Holiday Hoopla Dance Party. There will be plenty of interactive fun and games for the family to enjoy. This is new for the 2019 dance party.
Over in Dinoland, find your favorite Disney characters gathered together for Donald’s Dino-Bash with Christmas decorations in the likes of Donald Duck and his friends.
In addition to Up! A Great Bird Adventure, you will hear the story of Diwali, the holiday festival of lights in India. Luminous flowers and lanterns will light up the square in the theater district between Anandapur Theater and the waterfront stage.
The village of Harambe welcomes you to a special holiday demonstration. It’s a blend of western holiday traditions along with authentic African holiday celebrations.
Pandora – The World of Avatar
New this year is Christmas at Pongu Pongu.
Even the Na’vi decorate for Christmas. Pandora – The World of Avatar is where to find the Pongu Pongu drink stand ran by an expat serving holiday cheer. It will be decked in kitschy Christmas decor along with vintage Earth pieces and items that are indigenous to Pandora.
Christmas at the Animal Kingdom will be more magical than ever this year with so many new holiday attractions, decorations, and entertainment to enjoy.
Christmas time at Disney World is always one of my favorite times of the year. With the magnificent Christmas decor everywhere you look, including the resort hotels. Make sure to take it all in.
On an added note, over at the Magic Kingdom, there is an all-new Holiday Fireworks Spectacular debuting this year. Now you will experience Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks show, hosted by no other than Minnie Mouse herself. You will be able to see the fireworks display during the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
