Nature and Disney on Display

Revel in the beauty and harmony of all living things during a jubilant jamboree inspired by Carnivale celebrations around the world—now featuring a fun, Disney twist.

In late afternoon when the sun is beginning its descent at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park, listen for the distinctive sounds of Latin and world-beat rhythms as they fill the air around Discovery Island—that’s when José and Panchito enter the scene and the festivities begin!

The Viva Gaia Street Band! and a spirited group of Islanders welcome you to a larger-than-life gala celebrating the wonder and beauty of nature and who we are together—the “Nature Family.” Bursting with cheerful music and spectacular costumes that take inspiration from the living creature of the air, land and sea, this seemingly spontaneous, free-spirited dance party winds its way from one end of Discovery Island to the other, eventually arriving at the Discovery Island stage where the exhilarating event gets into full swing.

Over the course of several hours, the unflinching beauty of nature mixed with Disney magic is on dazzling display. Clap your hands, dance, laugh and experience unbridled joy in the evening—the pulsating bass, lively beats and playful Disney Characters dressed in extravagant outfits.

In the moonlight, everyone appears to glow. It’s a celebration of the night, a celebration of fun and a celebration of nature— and it’s surely one you’ll never forget.
