Kevin from Disney•Pixar’s “Up!” Now Greeting Guests at Disney's Animal Kingdom

Last month, the Walt Disney World Resort announced that Kevin (the large, exotic bird from Disney•Pixar’s “Up!) appeared to be migrating north from Paradise Falls toward Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Based on this exclusive video footage, it looks like she’s been spotted on Discovery Island!


Did you know that one out of five birds – over 2,000 species – migrate from one geographic location to another every year? According to the park's Animals, Science, and Environment team, many of those birds pass through Walt Disney World Resort on their travels. Nearly one third of the resort serves as an important corridor for many species, such as purple martins who spend their entire winter here and raise a family before returning home to Brazil.


Also, this adorable plush version of Kevin will arrive in mid-February at select merchandise locations such as Island Mercantile and Discovery Trading Co. Kevin herself is a wild animal and would not make for a good pet, but you’ll definitely want to pick up one of these cuties to take home with you. It’d be the perfect companion when you go on a wildlife adventure, spotting birds and other animals – at Disney’s Animal Kingdom or right in your own backyard!
