José and Panchito, Donald’s feathery friends from “The Three Caballeros,” join the fun of Discovery Island Carnivale at Disney’s Animal Kingdom starting February 4.

Discovery Island Carnivale, which takes place nightly on Discovery Island, celebrates the beauty and harmony of all living things in the form of an exuberant dance party that features cheerful music from the Viva Gaia Street Band!, spectacular costumes inspired by the living creatures of the air, land and sea, and more.

José and Panchito will join this nightly street party through May 5, 2018.


  • This is so exciting! We will be there during that time. I can’t wait to see them. I hope maybe they add a meet and greet.

  • I was so excited to see this and then I see runs through May 5. Boo! We’ll be there on May 22. Again, another event that I’m interested in, I will miss.

  • Literally booked a trip yesterday JUST for this. They are my husband’s and my youngest son’s favorite characters. We already have a trip booked in June but couldn’t take our chances that they would extend and stay through June. So a March trip it is as well.

  • I’m so excited for it! I really hope they will also do a meet and greet. Jose has always being my favorite character and it is my dream to have a picture with him. I love to see him at the Christmas show at the castle at MK during Very Merry Christmas. Now it’s going to be even better! I can’t wait.

  • WHERE’S Donald???

  • Will they be doing a meet and greet? Or only taking part in the dance party?

  • I can’t wait! Panchtio’s a favorite character of mine and I so have to do this!

  • Omg!!! We are so excited!

  • Awesome!! I get to see them when we go!
