PHOTOS: New Distanced Meet & Greet as Russell From “Up” Searches for Kevin at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Some characters we haven’t seen in a while are making distanced appearances at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for limited-time Earth Day experiences. In addition to Koda and Kenai from Brother Bear, Guests might see Russell from Disney/Pixar’s Up while visiting the theme park this week, making for a special distanced character meet and greet!


Russell, in his Wilderness Explorer uniform, was traversing the wilderness at the exit of the Rafiki’s Planet Watch Wildlife Express train station with a hand-drawn picture of his bird friend, Kevin.


Russell may not have found Kevin, but he did find us!


He was also carrying his camera, ready to snap photographs!


Some fellow Wilderness Explorers stopped for a distanced photo with him.


Keep checking WDWNT for coverage of Earth Day activities at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
