Three Meet and Greets Return to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Pocahontas Meet and Greet

Pocahontas has returned to the rocks on the east side of Oasis, near the bridge to Discovery Island. She and the other returning meet and greet characters will no longer appear on flotillas, instead resuming a full day meet and greet schedule. The characters are typically available intermittently between park open and 4 p.m. We advise checking the Walt Disney World website or My Disney Experience app to verify appearance times for specific dates.

Goofy is tracking the “birdies” he sees in unique categories: chirpy birdies, squawky birdies, birdies that float, song & dance birdies, birdies that make him happy, and really really big birdies.

His water bottle has a Camp Minnie-Mickey sticker. Camp Minnie-Mickey was a land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom until 2014, when it closed to make way for Pandora – The World of Avatar.
