Kevin from Disney•Pixar's "Up!" will be making a return to Disney's Animal Kingdom later this month.

Beginning January 24 2022, you can see Kevin by the Character Landing on Discovery Island.

Kevin originally debuted at Disney's Animal Kingdom in February 2019 as "UP!" gained a growing presence at the park, with Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and Dug greeting guests on Discovery Island, and appearing in the reworked bird show "UP! A Great Bird Adventure." Since the park reopened from the COVID-19 shutdown however, UP! was removed from the bird show, and Russell and Dug have not yet returned.

Agreed they really were not the right look.

If you have impressive arm muscles, you show them off. Sun’s out,…you know the rest.

That’s excellent news! The voices are always lovely to hear but that patriotic business casual look wasn’t good haha.

Dressed in undergarments?

Voices of Liberty will be getting new costumes finally. They were described to me as “Hamilton-esque.” And they will be individualized like the old costumes and Dickens costumes.

Much better to put the same characters in three different restaurants.

Encanto character dining would sell. They’re always late to the party.

About damn time. But knowing WDW we’re probably just gaining another Adventure Friend

They wouldn’t just randomly put them on the schedule with no announcement…you’ll know when/if they’re coming back otherwise.

Looks like July's Schedule is out.......No Trolley Dancers!! When are they supposed to Return??? Or were they cut at the last second like Castle Dreamlights??????
