We’ve got some exciting news, Wilderness Explorers! A certain colorful bird has been spotted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
Early this morning, Disney Parks Blog announced Kevin’s arrival at Discovery Island in Animal Kingdom. This new and exciting opportunity to see Kevin in person is now the third “UP!” related experience available at AK, alongside the Russell and Dug Meet and Greet, which is also located on Discovery Island, and UP! A Great Bird Adventure live animal show, which replaced the original bird show, Flights of Wonder, on April 22, 2018 and is located in the Asia area of the park.
From what we can tell from the Disney Parks Blog video and Disney’s website, there doesn’t seem to be a specific Meet and Greet location for Kevin like there is for Russell and Dug at this time, so it’s possible that you may just find her wandering around Discovery Island.
Along with the arrival of Kevin, Disney Parks Blog also announced that there will be a special Kevin plush for sale at select Animal Kingdom shopping locations. No word yet as to whether more Kevin-themed merchandise will be offered in the future, but we are hoping to see some Kevin T-Shirts and other souvenirs come to the shops at some point.
So be sure to stop by Discovery Island and see if you can spot Kevin on your next trip to Animal Kingdom!
