Disney's Animal Kingdom Christmas Holiday decor 2020

Holidays have officially arrived at Disney's Animal Kingdom today, and following on from last year, features decorations in every land.

Discovery Island is dressed in sparkling white holiday decorations. Animal-inspired luminaries line the rooftops, and wireframe lanterns in the shape of birds can be found perched throughout the area.

As we have seen at the other parks, and unlike Halloween, the decorations have not been scaled back despite COVID, and feature the same package as last year.

Click the gallery for a look around at all the 2020 Animal Kingdom Christmas holiday decor.

Social distancing was a problem in only 1 line. The family behind us at ROTR was all over us. A dad and 3 kids and dad didn’t seem to care. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Good to hear. It’s weird not being there... I’m always at WDW for New Years!

Just left the Studios. Got in 7 rides in just over 7 hours with lunch and some shopping mixed in. Crowds were about what I expected for NYE. Mask compliance was exceptional! Going back after dinner.

Yup! It's likely due to the COVID restrictions that limit capacity.

Not happening. Just like Universal and Disney could have increased capacity just for one day (today)
