Effective Sunday, May 24, 2015 Pocahontas will move to the Discovery Island Boat Landing (former home to Tigger and Pooh as well as Daisy) and Tarzan will take over Pocahontas’ location on the Discovery Island Trail.  I’ve updated my Animal Kingdom character location maps as well as Character Locator with the locations and new schedules.

May 11, 2015

Meeting Tarzan and Pocahontas at Animal Kingdom in Disney World

Jordyn and I headed out to meet Tarzan at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on his first day out Sunday, December 7, 2014.  We slept in and found his schedule fit ours best at 1:50pm.  We arrived 15 minutes early and we were first in line for that meet.  If you’re unsure where Tarzan and Pocahontas are currently located, you can find them on my Animal Kingdom Character Map.   You can always find anything that has a schedule on Character Locator as well.  Jordyn enjoyed learning to call Gorillas and practicing her Tarzan call.  I’ll have video of it later.

We then went to visit Pocahontas at the Discovery Island Boat Landing.  They themed the location well with corn, a canoe and such.  Pocahontas was impressed with Jordyn’s long hair and showed us around the place Pocahontas was visiting.

The wait here was rather odd.  They held us at the top of the landing area and we waited on Pocahontas to return from break before being guided down to the meet area.  They flipped the entrance and exit areas for this meet.

Cast Members are saying that Tarzan is supposed to stay through January 3.  Daisy Duck is supposed to return somewhere in Animal Kingdom  December 20th through December 31st.  She continues to serve breakfast and lunch at Tusker House.  It’s all kind of confusing really.  The photo below was taken last week at the same location when Daisy was out wearing her Christmas outfit.

Meeting Tarzan and Jane Porter at Disney Animal Kingdom

Tarzan and Jane came out for a special meet and greet today at the Animal Kingdom park.  They came out in front of the park for a training meet to prepare for the upcoming Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties.  Tarzan appeared first by himself, then Jane followed him.  After meeting each of them, I made my way around the park to get photos of MENUS so I can update the Character Locator app!  Yes, that the kind of awesome fun I have now that I’ve moved here.  After walking around the 6.37 mile circle that is Animal Kingdom, I made my way out of the park to find Tarzan and Jane meeting together, so I stopped for another brief meet and a couple of photos.  I would present the photos of me with Tarzan and Jane, but I look ridiculous after shaving most of my goatee for work.  Fortunately, I’m allowed to grow it back!

Both characters were very interactive and a lot of fun to meet.  Each was willing to sign autographs.

NOTE:  This is a TRAINING MEET, not a regularly scheduled meet.  They will not be appearing on the schedule in the future.  They may make a few appearances in the next couple of days, but those will be unscheduled.
