Walt Disney World Cast Members Share the Beauty of Animals in Photo Contest

Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment cast members are the amazing cast members who provide the necessary care to the animals who live at Walt Disney World Resort and other Disney properties around the globe.  The amazing programs allow guests to connect with these beautiful animals within the parks and in nature.  Many of the cast members enjoy taking pictures of the animals and four cast members entered their photos in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ annual photo contest.  The photos showcase the true beauty of the animals within their habitats at Disney locations, including Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, also located in Florida. We have a look at the photos that were entered below:
