Disney's Animal Kingdom News for May 30, 2018: Na'vi Video

Constructing a Shaman: The Disney Parks Blog released a time lapse video of constructing the Na'vi shaman. The video can be seen here. It's a interesting look at how such a complicated machine is created.



New Guide Maps: A new guide book has been released by Disney. The new features Dug and Russel from the new stage show, Up! A Great Bird Adventure. It also includes the new Donald Duck party at Dinoland.


Up Fast Pass Plus: The new stage show that replaced Flights of Wonder has one thing its predecessor did not. The option to be a Fast Pass Plus attraction. As a stage show, I don't see the need for it but it is an option if you want to ensure getting a seat.

Disney's Animal Kingdom News for May 9, 2018: More babies

Grevy's Zebra additions: As we mentioned on our most recent episode of Radio Harambe, 2 Grevy's Zebra foals have been born. The first was born on April 26th to Laylee and the second was born May 1 to Zuri. They are still bonding with their moms backstage but hopefully will be out on exhibit soon. This is just another addition of some important births to endangered species recently at the park including the tiger cubs, Augustus the hippo, and, of course, the adorable Stella the elephant. This species of zebra is quite endangered with probably less than 2500 living in the wild. They are also part of a Species Survival Plan, so these births are important to the survival of the species.

Grant Recipients: Earth Day, which of course recently passed, also saw the announcement of grants given by the Disney Conservation Fund to various projects around the world. Some of projects announced include protecting the Tasmanian devil in its historical range, a nest guarding program for the highly endangered California Condor, and helping to protect sea grass in the Florida Keys, a vital part of that ecosystem. For more details check out this blog post.

Wilderness Explorer's in Dinoland: One of my favorite recent additions to the park has been the Wilderness Explorer's game. As I am sure you know, there are stations located throughout the park where you earn badges to put in your book. Well, the one over at Dinoland, which was near the ice cream stand is moving with the upcoming addition of the Donald Duck party. The station will now be located near the queue of Dinosaur instead.
