Wildlife Wednesday: Animals Love Pumpkins!

posted on November 25th, 2015 by Jackie Ogden, Ph.D., Vice President, Animals, Science and Environment, Disney Parks

We are thankful to care for these amazing animals every day … and, recently, the animals showed us they are thankful for pumpkins!

Our animals love enrichment, including toys, scents and special food treats, including pumpkins! Enrichment is stimulating and fun for the animals, and it’s an important part of their care. Different types of enrichment enable the animals to make choices about their environment and encourage natural behaviors.

Here are just a few of our animals recently enjoying some fall enrichment at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Happy Thanksgiving!

posted on November 25th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Editorial Content Manager

This week in Disney history back in 1992, we met Jasmine, the heroine of one of my favorite Disney films, “Aladdin.” This love story takes us on an adventure as independent Princess Jasmine and “street rat” Aladdin fall in love and fight to be together – despite their stop-at-nothing nemesis Jafar.

Today, you can often meet Jasmine in Adventureland at Magic Kingdom Park. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience App for her latest schedule.

Thanks to Kent Phillips for the great portraits. To check out more in our series, see the list below.

posted on November 25th, 2015 by Sarah Domenech, International Public Relations Manager

The event Feliz Navidad is returning this year to the Mexico pavilion at Epcot where guests are welcome to celebrate the holidays a la Mexicana, by sharing their culture and traditions in a very musical way.


The Mariachi, which will perform six times per day starring on November 27th, will sing such known hits as “Feliz Navidad,” “Noche de Paz (Silent Night)”, and more during their presentation.


“Folklórico” dancers, adorned in the traditional, beautiful and colorful costumes, will dance the stories of love, peace and celebration.

Children are invited to play a role in the show, as we tell the story of Mary and Joseph set to the music of the “Posadas”.

Enjoyment of Feliz Navidad is included with the regular admission to Epcot.
