Disney's Animal Kingdom News: Musical Acts leaving, new parties, and sponsors

Musical Acts Gone: Two acts that have been providing entertainment at the Animal Kingdom for some time are leaving this month. The duo, Chakranadi, has stopped playing in Anandapur. Over in Discovery Island, The Sunset Serenatas, an act playing a Paraguayan harp is also leaving the schedule. No replacements have been announced.

Party for the Planet: Every year, on Earth Day, Disney celebrates the planet and the Animal Kingdom's birthday with a little party. This year it will be a lot bigger and longer since it is the park's 20th birthday. New food items will appear at the various food booths, dance parties will begin and get ready for Tiffins Talks. At that restaurant, you will be able to learn more about the animals of the park while enjoying your meal. As part of the special anniversary, a new Donald Duck takes over Dinoland party will begin, as well. 

Wild Africa Trek Sponsors: Otterbox, who makes various phone cases, have become the official sponsors of this tour. While it is not believe the tour will be effected in any way, new signs have sprung up. Otterbox has already released a Magic Kingdom design on sale at the parks and it is anticipated more designs will follow shortly.

Rafikis' Tour: Speaking of tours, a new tour has begun at Rafiki's Planet Watch, and the best part is, its free. The tour is 30 minutes and takes you to some backstage areas. You will get to see 2 of the following 4 areas: the hospital, the science center, the nutrition center or the invertebrate

building. This seems like a terrific idea to allow guests to get a sneak peek at some of the machinations of animal care. The tours are first come, first serve with sign ups at a table at the Planet Watch. Each tour can accommodate 16 guests.
