Kevin from ‘Up!’ Spotted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Courtney ReynoldsBlog

Last month, Disney announced that Kevin from Disney•Pixar’s “Up!” would soon make an appearance at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We’re happy to report that she has finally arrived!

Kevin recently migrated North from Paradise Falls to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and has been spotted roaming the walkways of Discovery Island.

Check out this video of her exploring the park:

Disney Animals

Disney’s Animal Kingdom plays an important role in wildlife conservation and education.

According to Disney’s Animals, Science, and Environment team, one out of five birds—over 2,000 species—migrate from one geographic location to another each year. Many of those birds pass through Walt Disney World during their migration. Purple martins actually spend the whole winter at WDW in order to raise a family before returning to their home in Brazil. How cool is that?!
