He's not everyone's cup of tea, but just as a narrator of the series, you barely realise that it's him when the focus is on everything else :)

Yes, the Seas was incorporated from the beginning so that land and sea based animals are included on the show.

Show is great but I'm not a big fan of Josh Gad *runs and hides*

I can't wait. The first season was excellent and I've been impatiently waiting for Season 2.

This is synergy done right. Josh Gad narrating a NatGeo-branded Disney+ show featuring Walt Disney World. Perfect.

Yay! I've been waiting for this!!! We plan to look for all the featured animals in April if we can!

I really hope they do more episodes of this show, it's become a favorite.

I learned that giraffes are as responsive to commands as cats.

This was a great series! We missed the fact it was eight episodes and were bummed to find out all of them had been released. Hopefully more are made in the future.

We really enjoyed this show, too. Kinda bummed that it was only 8 episodes.

I just wanted to do a little bump on this thread and say that this show has been an absolute delight to watch! My hubby and I have really enjoyed watching the show and have recommended it to friends and family. As someone that enjoys seeing the animals at the parks, it’s been really exciting to see certain animals featured on the show and not only recognize them but get to learn more about their daily lives! It’s also tremendously heartwarming to see how devoted the CM animal caretakers and veterinarians are. I am really hoping that Disney does more seasons of this show, and uses it as more of a means to educate and connect with guests in the parks and at home.

I really enjoyed the first episode. Between the frustration of the Cast Members trying to lure the giraffe and the elephant that listened to commands perfectly, it was a great episode.
