Walt Disney World Cast Members Show Off New Animal Kingdom Costumes

We announced previously that new costumers were come to cast members at Disney’s Animal Kingdom within Walt Disney World.  If you have recently been to the park you may have been able to see some of them.  These new costumes highlight some of the threatened and endangered species that Disney is actively trying to help in the wild.  The mosaic design is very intricate and was created with stories, which is one of the things that Disney is best known for .  Cast members are able to select from three different costume styles. Options are animals that fly (like cranes and butterflies), animals that swim (sharks, rays and turtles) and animals that live on land (elephants, rhinos, tigers and gorillas).  Guests will be able to find the costumes in the various lands around the theme park.

Cast members are a huge part of the entire Disney experience.  These new costumes provide cast members another way to help advocate for the animals and inspire guests to also take action to help support the animals in the wild.

The Disney Conservation Fund has directed more than $70 million to reverse the decline of wildlife in more than half of the countries in the world. Guests are also able to contribute to this fund when they visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom, which is a great way to give back to the environment and support conservation.

What do you all think of these new costumes?

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!
