It’s the most wonderful time of the year, especially at Walt Disney World! With holiday decorations taking place and sweet treats popping up throughout the theme parks, it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
That’s right, thanks to all of this Disney magic, it’s officially the holiday season in the theme parks and starting today, November 8, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will introduce the biggest holiday season in the park yet! After being open for almost two-decades, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will debut new festive entertainment and holiday décor in every land.
That’s right, Disney guests can experience the magic in all the lands in Disney’s Animal Kingdom as they each will have their own unique festivities for the upcoming holiday season!
Discovery Island will host life-sized animal puppets throughout the day and then as the sun sets, the Tree of Life will show off a glistening and shimmering new look. As the Tree of Life comes to life it will show a series of wintry tales along with a beautiful holiday musical score. Discovery Island is the place to be this holiday season, whether it is day or night.

Continuing on into Africa, Disney guests will be welcomed with a unique holiday presentation which intertwines Western traditions along with authentic Africans celebration colors and textures.
Also beginning today, Disney guests can celebrate the holiday season with fun, out-of-this-world celebrations in Pandora – The World of Avatar. Pandora is rolling out the holiday cheer with a whimsical display of holiday décor, which merges vintage pieces from Earth and handcrafted from Pandora.
