There’s a new 40-ton sand sculpture in Disney’s Animal Kingdom inspired by Disney’s upcoming film, Raya and the Last Dragon. And, the impressive display has seriously taken shape over the last few days. It first started as a HUGE pile of sand and has now transformed into intricate designs of the characters!

Today, work continues on the massive sculpture, but tomorrow, February 22nd, it’ll be finished and ready to view! Lots of progress has been made so far! Just a few days ago, we shared some photos of the display when it looked like this:
