Animal Kingdom characters in their Christmas costumes

There are only a few characters that appear within the parks during regular hours that offer special Christmas costuming.  Phineas and Ferb and Goofy after dark dress up at Hollywood Studios and Duffy appeared as Santa in Epcot, but the Animal Kingdom is a smorgasbord of Disney characters in special holiday outfits. You can find Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Chip n Dale, Goofy, Pluto, Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger in great festive attire.  My daughter and I spent a day in the Animal Kingdom recently and met each of these characters.

Wait for Santa Goofy at Animal Kingdom was much less than meeting him near the Osborne Lights at Hollywood Studios

Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger at Discovery Island landing

Eeyore needed a hug!

Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Chip n Dale were in Camp Minnie Mickey.  Chip n Dale switched places during the holidays with Baloo and Louie.

We learned that Mickey is a huge Alabama Crimson Tide fan. Got the biggest hug EVER from a character for a simple hat I was wearing.
It doesn’t take much to get the chipmunks to begin to have fun.
I wish the guys could dress like this year round.
Dale got his feelings hurt because my daughter chose Chip.
I told you Minnie was an Alabama fan, well Donald wasn’t doing the typical #1 just because he is a Notre Dame fan.

You might recognize Donald’s costume from his Tusker House meets, but he’s added a little red for the occasion.  It was a fun day that we also rode Dinosaur, Everest and Safari and watched Finding Nemo, Flights of Wonder and It’s Tough to be a Bug.  If you’re interested in those photos, let me know and I’ll post them sometime.

  1. Hi Kenny! I heard a “rumour” (always dangerous I know! lol) sometime ago about Camp Mickey Minnie. The rumour was that if you were the first in line of the day in Mickey’s line, you could get a photo with all the Camp Mickey Minnie characters (previously it was the Fab 5 before Goofy left) But I’ve never heard it again and never seen anything to remotely suggest it’s true. Do you know anything about this? Thanks!


  2. Any idea what will happen to all the characters in Camp Minnie Mickey when it closes next year? What will happen to all the holiday themed characters in 2013??
