    I see an experience for Meeting Pocahontas at Discovery Island Trails several times a day through Nov 30th, then nothing in December? Is this intentional or is the schedule not filled in for December?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christina!

    I see your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is just around the riverbend, and I’m so glad to hear you’re planning to venture beyond the trees to meet Pocahontas on Discovery Island at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

    I haven’t heard any news of Pocahontas traveling beyond the shore and somewhere past the sea, so I think it’s just that the schedule hasn’t yet been updated. My son loves Pocahontas, so we make a point of stopping by to say hello, ask how Meeko is doing, and see what news she has to share. My advice is to keep an eye on the schedule on the Meet Pocahontas on Discovery Island Trails web page, as I bet it will be updated soon. You can also check the Times Guide or with a Cast Member as you arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom. My very favorite way to locate characters when I’m at Walt Disney World is using the My Disney Experience mobile app. From the menu at the top of the map page, tap “Characters.” You’ll see Mickey head icons appear on the maps of each theme park; tap Mickey to see who is meeting, and tap that character’s name for details on times and even directions. While character appearances are subject to change without notice, I’m scattering pixie-dusted leaves of every color into the wind and wishing that those times pop up soon so you can lock in your plans for your visit.

    Christina, have you heard about the all-new holiday offerings at Disney’s Animal Kingdom? I especially can’t wait to see the Merry Menagerie of animal puppets on Discovery Island, but it all looks just wonderful. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the holiday news – I’ve been making my list and checking it twice as I get ready to enjoy everything the holidays have to offer this season! (And yep, I’m packing my Santa-approved stretchy pants so I can try all the snacks!)

    Enjoy all the festive fun!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
