VIDEO: The Best Thing EVER Happened in Animal Kingdom Today

With its plentiful baby animals and its pretty-in-pink flamingo cupcakes, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a veritable mecca of cuteness at Disney World!

No offense to all the savanna babies, though, but the cutest thing in Animal Kingdom today wasn’t actually an animal at all…it was an epic selfie moment with a beloved Disney character!

Even from a distance, seeing and interacting with characters at Disney World can be a really fun experience. It’s hard not to get giddy from excitement when waving at Mary Poppins, or princesses during a Character Cavalcade!

Imagine, then, how thrilled we were to snag a selfie with Russell from Up! 


Russell made a special appearance for Earth Day today and we were psyched to see him! And, we got to share a very special moment with him! 

Camera ready

After Russell proudly showed off some of his badges to us 

So many badges!

…then it was selfie time! 


That’s right, Molly and Russell got to take a special selfie today! Truly, an honor to be stored in Russell’s photo library. 

It’s moments like these that bring pure joy and remind us how special the characters at Disney World are! Stay tuned for more fun moments from Disney World!

  1. I loved the movie UP. I understand that Disney wants to promote their movies. What I hate is how Flights of Wonder has been ruined by adding a Russell storyline. Keep his character in the park but please, get it out of the bird show.
