Crews filmed for five months using cutting-edge technology with custom-built GoPro enclosures, large 18 foot cranes, and underwater cameras to give viewers a never-before-seen view of the animals of Walt Disney World. We are invited to see the quality animal care given by the veterinarian staff and see to the day to day operations in caring for the animals.
