Walt Disney World is celebrating Asian Pacific American Heritage Month in a special way. Check out the new characters and Guest experiences that can be enjoyed this month.
2 Great Guest Experiences
Guests have enjoyed a special experience at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with beautiful sand sculptures in the past.
In February, Guests may remember that artists carefully crafted a 40 ton sand sculpture to celebrate the release of Disney’s newest film Raya and the Last Dragon. The sculpture featured Raya and her faithful companion “Tuk Tuk.” You can check out this completed sculpture HERE.
On April 2nd, artisans began creating a detailed sand sculpture to celebrate National Geographic’s “Secrets of the Whales.” This 40 ton sculpture was located on the Discovery Island Stage until April 30th. You can see a time lapse video of this creation HERE.
Now a new sand sculpture will be taking shape at the Discovery Island Stage. In mid-May, Guests can enjoy a sand sculpture featuring Moana. We can’t wait to see this beautiful sculpture.
Also at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Guests can enjoy a special Animation Experience. A short trip to Conservation Station at Rafiki’s Planet’s Watch will allow Guests to participate in this second great experience. For the month of May, Guests can now learn to draw either Tuk Tuk from “Raya and the Last Dragon” or Moana’s favorite sidekick Pua from “Moana”.
In Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Guests can enjoy a Moana inspired sand sculpture and also a special Animation Experience at Conservation Station.
New Character Experiences
Earlier we shared that 2 new Princesses could be viewed in Magic Kingdom. Now both Moana and Mulan are featured at Magic Kingdom.
At EPCOT, Mulan will be joining the Princess Processional that travels throughout the World Showcase. These Character Cavalcades are not exactly the same as previous character interactions, but we love the frequency of them throughout the day. We are so excited that Mulan can now be seen at both Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.
Lastly, Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios can now experience a RARE character. This character has only appeared one other time at Walt Disney World. Last October, “Mira, Royal Detective” from India joined the Disney Jr. Motorcade.
Guests were so excited to experience this new Disney Jr. character, but unfortunately she was only enjoyed briefly. Now Guests can visit with “Mira, Royal Detective” near the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular stage. Guests can see her looking for clues with her magnifying glass and take a socially distanced picture with her.
Guests can enjoy Mulan at both Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. In Magic Kingdom, Guests can see Moana. While in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Guests can interact with “Mira, Royal Detective.”
