Many of you know, especially if you follow the channel, that Disney’s Animal Kingdom is Spokesmayne’s favorite Walt Disney World park. Although the other three parks are definitely magical, I have always had a huge love for animals and nature. So I was super excited when I learned that there is a new series coming to Disney+, debuting Friday, September 25th which shows an in depth look at how the animals at Animal Kingdom are taken care of and we get to meet the amazing animal care team whose passion is their job.
“Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom” is an original eight-episode docuseries from National Geographic that gives viewers an all-encompassing backstage pass to explore the magic of nature within Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and The Seas with Nemo & Friends at EPCOT. Catch a glimpse of what is to come in the trailer below.
Expect to see a one of a kind, backstage look at some of the most intriguing animals on the planet and how Disney cares for them. I know you’ll be impressed by the animals featured in the series, however I think, like me, you will be blown away with the love and appreciation the Disney animal care experts have for those in there care and who have formed remarkable bonds with the 5,000-plus animals who call Walt Disney World Resort, “home.” As Dr. Mark Penning put it; I’m extremely proud of our animal care team and love how their passion and skill shine through this series.
So, set aside time on Friday, September 25 to enjoy the premiere of the “Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom” on Disney+, with new episodes dropping each Friday for the eight-episode run of the series. Who knows, maybe we will be going to check out some of the animals ourselves at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in the near future!
