Disney World Brings Back Animal Kingdom Staple


Walt Disney World Resort has been doing away with many rides, attractions, or offerings that Disney World fans have previously loved (a ride called Splash Mountain might ring a bell!), but Disney World is also bringing back some things that Disney Guests will be pleased about — and one of them is a fun Animal Kingdom experience that you can actually enjoy without being on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

If the Animal Kingdom and all of the work that goes on behind the scenes to take care of African and Asian animals in the Disney Park — not to mention helping endangered species like the okapi to replenish their numbers — is something that intrigues you, then take note!

Disney has announced that the popular Disney+ show called Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is returning in January — and a special sneak peek called  “Magic of Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Giraffic Jam” will be airing on both National Geographic and Nat Geo WILD on Sunday, January 1 at 8/7c.

The episodes of this show’s new season (which will come to National Geographic on January 1, 2023 and Disney+ on January 4, 2023) will include Sea You Later, Turtles!, Sea Turtle SOS, Okapi Bundle of Joy, Gorilla Divemaster, Flocks of Love, That’s Amore Eel, Chilled-Out Cheetahs, and Giant Leap for Rhinokind!

Disney and National Geographic have collaborated many times (not to mention worked together on expeditions and trips that Disney Guests can book on an international scale), so the return of this show is not surprising.

Many Disney fans are constantly impressed and fascinated by the work that goes on behind the scenes in the Animal Kingdom and at Animal Kingdom Lodge in Florida, too, so the enthusiasm about this show’s return is not surprising!
