    Was in Disney Animal Kingdom 13 years ago. We ended up being a part of the parade that afternoon. Do they still do that? My family is planning a trip June 2019. I know my kids would love it. Thanks

    Hi Melissa,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. I just love that you have such warm memories from a past trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom! That is Disney magic in a nutshell, and what keeps my family coming back again and again.

    I'm so sorry to tell you that there currently is not a parade at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Having said that…your trip is still a long way away, so it’s possible things will change. Please be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog to stay up to date with announcements about the parks and resorts. I would absolutely love to see a parade at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so I’ll be wishing on a star right alongside you.

    Melissa, there is the cutest new experience in DinoLand U.S.A. called Donald’s Dino-Bash!, and I think you and your family will love it. Donald Duck recently discovered that his ancestors are dinosaurs, and he is throwing a prehistoric party to celebrate. Many of Donald’s friends have joined the party, and you will not believe the adorable dinosaur costumes that Chip n’ Dale are wearing to the celebration! The party includes character meet and greets and an evening dance party; all the details will be in the Times Guide, so be sure to pick one up as you enter the park.

    There is so much good stuff happening at Disney’s Animal Kingdom right now; you are going to love exploring! All the elements of a parade are spread around the park, so whether it’s music, dancing, colors, characters, or amazing sights, you’ll find it while in the park. 

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
