New Elephant Experience Coming To Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Bryan RipperNews

Disney’s Animal Kingdom is introducing a new elephant experience beginning March 12 2017. During the 60-minute “Caring for Giants” experience, you’ll meet with dedicated animal specialists who provide for the care and wellness of our African elephant herd. They’ll give you a glimpse into their day-to-day responsibilities as they provide fascinating facts about the elephants.

African cultural representatives will also be on hand to share stories of Disney’s conservation efforts dedicated to the preservation of wild populations throughout their homeland.

Throughout this experience, you’ll be able to observe the elephants from approximately 80 to 100 feet away—so you’ll enjoy a closer encounter with the elephants than you would during other in-park experiences.
