As shared via Disney’s Animals, Science and Environment Facebook page: “Celebration is in the air at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as we honor birthday girls Kirana and Grace this week. Kirana, the first babirusa born at the park, just had her first birthday. Grace, a western lowland gorilla, is celebrating year 2 with her troop. In partnership with Disney’s Animal Nutrition Center, animal keepers made birthday “cakes” with portions of their daily diets and some extra goodies, like watermelon, to celebrate the occasion.”

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
