Get ready and join beloved characters for a prehistoric party returning to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this month!
Guests visiting Disney’s Animal Kingdom will have the chance to meet Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, & Chip ‘n’ Dale, who will return to the Park this month! They are ready to throw a prehistoric party over 200 million years in the making. They are all dressed up in their iconic dino-inspired outfits to return to DinoLand U.S.A. on September 4.
DinoLand was previously home to the steel Wild Mouse roller coaster, Primeval Whirl, and currently houses the TriceraTops Spin ride and numerous carnival games. When Primeval Whirl was demolished to create a seating area and Donald’s Dino-Bash! failed to return when Disney World reopened after its pandemic closure, many fans thought the site was in for a retheme — some even suggested that Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) characters and rides should take over the space.
However, these remain pure speculations, at least for the time being, as Disney continues to show its commitment to the popular area at the Park, especially with the return of Donald’s Dino-Bash!
