After debuting at Disney California Adventure for Pixar Fest 2024, the talking Dug character has unexpectedly arrived at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. This version of Dug from “Up” can actually talk to guests, reciting some of his famous quotes from the Pixar film.

Talking Dug

A person in a large, furry dog costume with a big nose and pink tongue stands in an outdoor area next to a kiosk, reminiscent of the Talking Dug Meet and Greet. Another person holding a pen is visible on the left.

The talking Dug character is roaming Discovery Island instead of appearing at the Wilderness Explorers Club House, which he and Russell returned to earlier this year. Russell is still meeting at the Club House at regular meet and greet times.

There are no announced times to encounter Dug and you won’t find him listed on the My Disney Experience app.

Kevin from “Up” also roams Discovery Island periodically until about 5 p.m. Dug will likely alternate appearances with Kevin until around the same time.

Watch our videos of Dug below.
