If you’ve been following our #DisneyMagicMoments, then you know Disney cast member Katelyn and her extraordinary at-home recreation of Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.  Months ago, Katelyn led a creative tour of the Harambe Wildlife Reserve simply to make people smile at home. 

Now, Katelyn is back – creating magic for visiting guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park.  And during the recent reopening of the park, she enjoyed her own magical moment with a surprise meeting with Disney Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek.  It’s a moment Katelyn will never forget!

Katelyn also told us during our latest edition of #DisneyCastLife that she’s grateful her video entertained so many people but she’s really overjoyed to be back greeting and educating guests in the park.  Katelyn said, “I came back and I was like, ahh, I’m home!”
