12/22 Disney’s Animal Kingdom Christmas – Jingle Jungle Parade, Character Trees, Dance Parties!
Yesterday was a perfect day at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park! Our weather has been very warm this December, and I didn’t even need a sweater as we stayed into the evening.
The Christmas tree at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is, as you’d expect, animal themed! While the decorations at the base of the tree stayed the same, many were moved around from last year.

Some of the trees are at the beginning of character greeting trails. Donald’s tree is at the entrance to his meet & greet. The line was relatively short (Chip & Dale were meeting right outside, siphoning off some of the crowd).
Chip & Dale wore almost matching outfits:
Pluto’s tree even includes a doghouse and bones for a tree topper:
Who wouldn’t go nuts for a Chip & Dale tree?
