Kevin from “Up” has flown over to DinoLand U.S.A. in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The mama bird previously made regular appearances on Discovery Island, but has been in DinoLand for the past several weeks.

Kevin roams the land with a Wilderness Explorer, interacting with guests.
Be careful — she might try to eat your ear headbands!
We don’t know if this is a permanent location change for Kevin, but she does fit in with Donald’s Dino-Bash, an ongoing celebration of the connection between dinosaurs and birds.
Disney has announced plans to replace DinoLand with a Tropical Americas-inspired land featuring “Encanto” and “Indiana Jones.” “Up” wasn’t mentioned as part of the new land, but would still fit in with the theme.
Russell and Dug from “Up” previously had a meet and greet on Discovery Island and appeared in “UP! A Great Bird Adventure.” Neither returned following the park’s months-long closure due to COVID-19 in 2020. The show became “Feathered Friends in Flight” with no characters. Guests will sometimes see Russell and Dug on the Adventure Flotilla.
Goofy also recently began meeting guests in DinoLand U.S.A.
