Donald’s Dino-Bash kicks off at Disney’s Animal Kingdom on May 25th and while it is currently being advertised as a temporary addition, it looks like Donald’s Dino-Bash will be a permanent addition if successful, according to Disney.
“In the conceit of the storyline, Donald just found out he’s a descendant of dinosaurs. He’s thrilled,” said Mark Renfrow, show director with Disney Parks Live Entertainment. Since the closure of Camp Minnie-Mickey in early 2014 to make way for Pandora – The World of AVATAR, Disney’s Animal Kingdom has lacked a large presence of Meet-and-Greets. With the addition of Donald’s Dino-Bash, there will be eight new stations for guests to meet characters, including Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack.
“It’s here forever,” Renfrow said. “It’s going to feel much more alive and definitely have so much more for the family and the kids.”
