The holidays are such a magical time at Walt Disney World. From the excitement of Disney’s “Very Merriest After Hours” to the return of the Candlelight Processional, there are so many reasons to visit Disney in the upcoming months!

While we’ve covered the new stage show offering, where to find Santa Claus, and general holiday news in previous posts, an entertainment option is returning to the Animal Kingdom this season!

Announced today, the Merry Menagerie will be making its way back to Discovery Island this holiday season. This entertainment offering includes “life sized artisan-sculpted puppets” of animals such as reindeer, foxes, polar bears, penguins and more.

These puppets are accompanied by musicians to add whimsy and fun to the overall performance. This is a festive offering that adds a little more magic and entertainment to the Animal Kingdom!

In 2019, Disney released a video examining how they created this performance for the delight of guests. Check out the YouTube video below for background from Disney!
