Happy 9th Birthday to Disney’s Galapagos Tortoises’!

Excuse us while we fill your screen with a little cuteness for the day! Disney Cast Members joined together to celebrate the 9th Birthday of Galapagos tortoises at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. These cute four-legged friends received special birthday “cake” treats. Check out the adorable photos below.


As shared by Walt Disney World Cast and Community Facebook page: “Animal Keepers sure know how to shell-abrate! Sara and Kelly recently teamed up with the Cast Members at the Animal Nutrition Center to create special birthday “cakes” made of watermelon and pricky-pear cactus for our Galapagos tortoises’ 9th birthday at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Sure looks like a wild celebration to us.”

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.
